Sand and Sea of Inspiration
I’m strolling on a sandy beach
looking at the horizon, it is early morning.
I can hear the sound of the waves tuned to the rhythm
of the tides.
I can see a group of sanderlings running in rapid pace,
back and forth,
trying to meet the ebbs of foamy seawater rushing in.
I can hear the seagulls busy in vociferous conversation
in a language that I can’t understand.
I can see small crabs exit their furrows in the sand and
begin a crazy mob, gesticulating with their pincers as if proclaiming a new imaginary revolution.
I can see three large pelicans flying high in formation
just like flying fortresses ready to unleash doom and destruction.
I can smell the ocean.
I can taste the salty flavor of the ocean kissing my lips.
I can clearly feel the reality turning this venue into fantastic images
which maybe exist only in dreams and now are permeating my
already awed mind…
I just wanted to share this moment with you!
