I dove into the ocean
to catch a glimpse
of a sea turtle.
I saw him for a moment,
and my heart fluttered.
I saw pods of dolphins
in the wild,
frolicking like children in
and my heart sang.
I saw wondrous things
without a compass to lead the way
nor a plan.
My guide was my curiosity
and the willingness to fail.
Wow, in the sea world just to be dipping down and down!! happy 2015ReplyDelete
smiles...we can see some pretty amazing things when we let that curiousity be our guide...i have seen the loggerheads at a farm where they were being cared for and raised, but never swam with them in nature...that would be so cool....ReplyDelete
That last line is so important in life. I think being in the ocean is sort of a primal need fulfilled. So many things to discover.ReplyDelete
I love those closing lines ~ To be curious of those creatures and share them ~ Have a lovely weekend Ayala ~ReplyDelete
Be curious like a cat and we can see some fun things, be nice to have 9 lives though to fall back on hahaReplyDelete

A wonderful word picture, Ayala! And, I do think we have to have a willingness to fail before we can forge ahead.ReplyDelete
