FROM THE SAILOR’S DIARY

HEAVEN ON SEA

I rise & pull the porthole blind aside.
And what a vista awaits me outside.
Amazing, amazing, Heaven on sea!

Breezeless, ripple less, the sea a pond replicate.
The white sun, ever-so-gently opens its gate.
Beautiful, beautiful, Heaven on sea!

As I sip my morning coffee from the bridge wing,
A light drizzle kisses me on its southerly swing.
Amazing, amazing, Heaven on sea!

A beautiful double rainbow arches across our bows.
As we joyously enter this magical house.
Beautiful, beautiful, Heaven on sea!

The sun is getting mightier by the minute, indoors I glide.
But wait – a huge white/grey umbrella shades me, tempting me outside.
Amazing, amazing, Heaven on sea!

The clouds passeth & I walk indoor – awaiting the next act,
Luring me to the outside, a pod of porpoises on our tract.
Beautiful, beautiful, Heaven on sea!

Whilst I sit back enjoying the synchronicity in deep blue.
I hear a gull whistleth out to her mate saying “I love you.”
Oh Joy! Double bonanza!! In air & in sea!
Amazing, amazing, Heaven on sea!

The ruddy one is on its last legs in the west.
The golden orb, already arisen, bids adios to the mighty one to rest.
What a delight to see them baton- exchange.
Beautiful, beautiful, Heaven on sea!

In the golden hue, the gentle bow waves sneak aft.
Meets & mates their fellows from rear – as they laugh & dance.
And they grow and move away from me, leaving me in a trance.
Amazing, amazing, Heaven on sea!

Look above; the twinklers too are adding their magic tonight.
There, I see Sirius – he has his silver spear alight.
Otherside, the beautiful one too has thrown her silver streak – tempting me
her-wards.

My heart brimmeth with ecstasy!
Beautiful, beautiful, Heaven on sea!

And then in this vast expanse of blue & blue;
I see…….. You…………….My Beautiful One.
I am speechless. I bow down reverently.
Amazing, Beautiful, Heaven on sea!
