water of the sea

137 01 January 3rd 2016

Aquamarine. Water of the sea, captured in a phonics tube. Turn with the tides; tuned to the moons. Never still. Ever changing. Waves crashing; lapping.

They asked what we wanted to bring with us to Mars. I said “the ocean.”

      Exactly!
      I said folks were crazy in the town where my mother lived because there was something in the water — I always used filtered water, just in case, ;-)

      Thank you.
      The sights and sounds of the ocean are so much a part of earth I would want them with me wherever I should go.

    Not often a poem will bring a lump to my throat, but this did. A beautiful “memory” story. I really love it.

      I do tend to go on, so sometimes I try to be short and simple. I’m glad I was successful.

    “They asked what we wanted to bring with us to Mars. I said “the ocean.”” – so beautiful, if anyone asks me the same question I will answer like this!

      Thank you.
      I’m glad you liked my microblast of fiction.
      Perhaps we shall go to Mars together. ;-)
