salt from the sea

Salt from the sea
or paint for me
Salt from the sea
or paint for me

I’ll have them both
or three for tea
I’ll have them all
for me you see

Cate’s response

Searching for peace
oh calm tranquility
where can I find thee
Down by the sea
As I stare my eyes do drown
in your turquoise tranquility

my response to Cate

beneath the sea
there’s calm for me
as calm as white
as soft as thee
gentle hearts be free
be free
look far deeper
times by three
love be loved
see be seen
seek to find
and on you’ll shine

    oh, well, never tried that… but let it be a first… :)

    _salt you’re talking
    salt and sea
    painting a new world for me
    deeply probing
    gently sharing
    calmness and tranquility
    freeing freedom
    finding wisdom
    tasting salt
    and ocean’s unity _

  • oh lovely steppeland lovely!! thank you that’s gorgeous :)

    Oh lovely idea Karen, I give it a try to reply!

    Salt from the sea
    Is nurturing me
    Diving in, feel free

    Foot steps shapes the sand
    Refreshed energized and elate
    Inspired again to create………………………………..

    lovely karin
    how about this:
    you draw me in
    water
    under and over
    safe in your tidal
    arms
    i discover
    the foam
    and the gems
    of the sea
    the foam
    and the gems
    of the sea
    before me
    beneath me
    above me
    light piercing
    the salty brine
    to find the fishes
    pearly shine

  • aaaw, holly…
    before me beneath me above me i got tingles all over me
    beautiful… pearly shine…oh…melts xx

    Wild fish flinging
    salt and stars
    from the denizens of the deep,
    flashing, flipping, saucer skipping,
    dreams and shadows flounders keep.
    Stars in bottom, stars in air,
    see the octopussy stare
    into empty pirate kegs
    through the pasta of his legs.
    I am naked in the sea
    soaked and sassy
    floating up
    to the silver rim and cup
    where the golden murplup flies
    through the ocean’s salty eyes.

  • see the octopussy stare
    into empty pirate kegs
    through the pasta of his legs

    oh yes…!!
    I am naked in the sea
    soaked and sassy
    floating up
    to the silver rim and cup
    where the golden murplup flies
    through the ocean’s salty eyes
    ….
    karin takes a deep breath, sighs and has tears in her eyes
    thank you Blake!

    Ah Karin – I just totally love the freedom and the joy in both the original and the additions people have contributed. I’m afraid my muse is still on “hiatus” but this just might bring her back! Always lifts my spirits to look at your art and read your writing – pure delight! xoxox

    Karin, what a gorgeous write… Love the gentle flow of the ebb and tide with your words.

    Within the deepness
    of your sea,
    You are within me,
    Swirling and lifting,
    Gently, you calm me
    .

    Thanks so much for adding me to your watchlist and the yellow * for “Soul Rain” This is my page… perhaps enjoy the festive song… “at”: http://www.redbubble.com/people/voce!
    Much love to you. Betty

    Thanks Karin for you lovely heart to think of me. No, I wont leave and even wrote a journal about the ‘delete button syndrome’ to make sure other bubblers realise the immense emotional damage to self when they delete ‘themselves’… Love for the Festive Season (and always…)
