I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky…*

Going downto the sea
“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky …” *
southbay 2
I walked along the shore, inbetween and betwixt .
This liminal space, where such beauty lies.
A moment to catch my breath,
between the sea, the shore and the sky.
south bay
Gentle winds, and low level  waves stroke the shore line, whispering,
while dogs barking call out to circling Gulls,
Her space.
Within a few hours we will have crossed the boundary;
the darkness shall approach faster than the tide.
Between the living and the dead.
Between the dark and the light.
Harvest gathered,
season’s end
 closing down.
The  storms waiting in the side wings,
tempestuous and raw,
 will  linger.
While Skadi’s fingers caress each late rose, till they wither and die.
