The Sky and the Sea: Poetry and Prose
Back to the sea someone said, and many agreed, so they went. Forsaking the land, they stepped cautiously into the waters, like newborns opening their eyes to peer at the world for the first time. What they found was a world that itself, seemed to be alive-shifting and swaying like some gigantic animal. And it was here they found their new home among the rocks and coral, the fish and fauna. Flowing through the water's veins, they quickly became woven into the sea's intricate pattern. But they never forgot those who had stayed behind. And they longed, one day, to be with them.
