Missing the Sea

tugboat on amber seas, burrard inlet, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.jpg
It’s a funny thing
That I live just one block
From the ocean
Often times smell the salt
And the tide
Through an open window

And yet
I miss the sea

An urban inlet
Is not a wide sandy beach
On a limitless sea
With breakers vaulting salt spray
Into the atmosphere

The photograph was taken from a small public park literally just a block from my apartment.

The words were inspired by the Dancing Echoes post, Moment, the image and poem in which kinda completes this thought. =)
