The Kingdom of the Sea

 

kingdomSailing on the sea, we’re friends of Odysseus.
We are guided by hand, by the wind of Aeolus.
The Sun.
The eye.
The watchful Helios.

Drifting to Scylla and Charybdis, we’ll sink.
Brought to the madness, we are on the brink.
The sea.
The blue.
The unknown world.

The waves are calling me
with mesmerising sirens.
Abandon the ship to the sea,
and dwell in the deep environs.
Dream of fantastic places
the world has never seen.
A journey with the unknown faces,
where my heart has never been.

Whelmed to the bottom of the sea floor, we’re alive.
It is from where the mysteries and phenomena derive.
The dark.
The light.
Truly enigmatic.

All around the gold palace of Neptune the king,
the sea monsters freely roam for the time being.
The big.
The small.
Coloured and colourless.

The waves are calling me
with mesmerising sirens.
Abandon the ship to the sea,
and dwell in the deep environs.
Dream of fantastic places
the world has never seen.
A journey with the unknown faces,
where my heart has never been.

Time and time again,
I am drawn to this sea glen.

Enchanted, I cannot resist,
there is no reason to persist,
that I must leave this place.

The waves are calling me
with mesmerising sirens.
Abandon the ship to the sea,
and dwell in the deep environs.
Dream of fantastic places
the world has never seen.
A journey with the unknown faces,
where my heart has never been.

The kingdom of the sea,
whispers to me:
“Don’t abandon me,
never leave me be.
Yours  are all treasures,
and all the water pleasures,
just never let me be,
only the kingdom of the sea”.
