One Wave At A Time

A  L  O  H  A !
" Blue, green, grey, 
white, or black; 
smooth, ruffled, 
or mountainous; 
that ocean is
 not silent. "
              H. P. Lovecraft, 
                         The White Ship












Some see the fence,
Some see the mountains;
Feel Free to reframe
Your focus!


Linking to 










“ When we seek 
to discover the 
best in others, 
we somehow
 bring out the
 best in ourselves. ” 
            William Arthur Ward

Smooth Sailing
is one wave,
one breeze,
one gale,
one stillness
at a time...

The glory
is in the sailing,
then,  
the re-telling.

You know you 
love that
old Rocking Deck!

Me too.

Lovely of you
to stand for a while,
side by my side
marveling
at far horizons.

Passing ships,
I salute you!
      Fondly, cloudia

Oh Cloudia, what a beautiful poem! Thank you. Thank you for the link you sent me about the Canadian blogger, who was born in the Netherlands. Very moving.
Have a great weekend.

Such a lovely sky. I think I'd go for the view of the mountains over the chain link.
Enjoyed that last shot too. Such lush greenery.

The ocean is indeed never silent - and I miss her siren song.
