WHEN I’M NEAR THE WATER

sans souci

When I’m near the water I think blue and I’m sure my blood pressure goes down.

The bay was a mirror this morning and I dream that the fish are cruising slowly, silently under the wavy wet water.

There was a time when I caught fish every day but the earth and the bay are not so pristine now and the fish no longer leap from every stream. I look at the tide as it comes and goes and realise, like me, it’s just passing through except water doesn’t age.

One thought on “WHEN I’M NEAR THE WATER

  1. Beautifully expressed Sean. Poetic, more than fine. Although I admire more the hands, the eyes, the man who knew to witness and now share with us. Home doesn’t mean so much a place, but the person standing there and how he lives.
