What is a sea to a fisherman’s eye?
A giving friend? A savior?
Or a killer in disguise?
A fierce monster
to deal with…
to duel with….
Or is it a she to a moonboat sailor?
A mistress full of mystery
So cruel…so beautiful…
An enigma she is
Never to get over with.
And the man who dries her gifted fish,
How indispensable her existence is
In that stinginess he smells life!
Even their women in the shore,
has taken the truth of being a second priority.
But what do her lovers mean to the sea?
Who knows what secret she keeps
in her deep!
But if you could grasp the voice
of the splashing waves, the breeze,
they would tell you a tale
of how she is bound by her lovers spell;
that devoid these swains on her coast
her invincible magic is somewhere lost.
