A Goddess From The Sea

With the light of dawn my mind is becoming clear. As the sun rises over the cliffs that guard the land from the pounding ocean, I catch sight of the lady of my dreams. She stands proudly erect looking out to sea, with her child by her side. This slim beauty has the classic features of a goddess. Her figure is that of one who is proud to be a woman. This is extenuated by her small bikini, which allows almost all of her body to absorb the rays of the rising sun.Before recognising her, I thought that the two bright lights that I saw were stars twinkling in the night sky. Now I realise that they were not stars at all, but my goddess’s eyes. The only thing I know that would be able to eclipse the sparkle in her eyes is her smile. As I watch from a distance so as not to alarm her. I am fortunate to catch a glimpse of that smile as she turns to her son. I am at to great a distance to hear what she said, but what ever was said in reply by her child, started her laughing.The peals of laughter flow over me, making my skin quiver with excitement. Just the sound of this laughter is enough to make my blood boil and my heart race. I think to my self what, would I do if she ever came close enough for me to actually speak to her, let alone touch her silken skin. I almost yell out with the overwhelming power that this thought sends to my brain. I must stifle the yell. If she should find me watching her and her son in their private moments together, she will surely turn and leave. Then what would I do? With this thought my heart feels that it has been wrenched from my chest, leaving a gaping hole that nothing could ever fill.Suddenly she takes he son’s hand and turns in my direction. I shrink back behind the rocks for fear that I might be seen. Walking together hand in hand, they make their way along the cliff to a path that leads down to the beach. Her son begins to run ahead toward the beach. Even though I worry he may fall, I am not able to take my eyes off her. The way she moves is so fluid. Almost like the ocean it’s self. Her rippling muscles remind me of waves gently caressing the sand on the beach. As I watch I have a sense of for-boding. My mind telling me that I should not be intruding in their lives. Even so, I am unable to remove my eyes, and I watch as they reach the beach once again joining hands.At first they walk slowly along the waters edge. Then as if her son needs guidance, she walks into the shallow water. Further and further out she walks, taking him with her. Then without warning he dives into the foam. I look on in disbelief as he swims out into the ocean. It is as if he has spent a lifetime within its waves. My goddess stands and watches his progress. She seems to have total faith and an understanding that he will be safe. In a flash she is gone, I lose sight of her beneath the waves.Looking up I saw her son was further out than I would have felt comfortable being. Wondering if she had noticed how far he had swum, I scanned the waves looking for her. My heart began to pound with fear. I strained my eyes searching the waves. Then I saw her, she had surfaced right next to her son. They gambolled and played in the water like two dolphins. Diving and resurfacing, rolling over and over in the swell.I watched in awe, as they swam further and further out into the deep blue water.

Suddenly they stopped, both turning back toward the beach. I felt as if they were both looking directly at me. Did they know I was there watching them? My heart faltered, then jumped with joy. I had a feeling of warmth growing within, a knowing that they did know I was there. Then, with what I can only believe was a wave they both turned and dove beneath the waves. I stared out to sea, hoping against hope that I would catch a glimpse of them, but deep inside knowing that they had gone.
My thoughts and memories of that day live on. Wondering if I will be fortunate enough to catch sight of them once more. I still go back to that spot on the cliffs, spending long hours peering out to sea. Her wave, the sight of my sea goddess and her son swimming and playing together are always in my mind. Feelings of love for them both beat in my heart and will stay with me forever.
