we found ourselves in the sea.


IMG_4670

i don’t know why, but i love this picture i took. it reminds me of what i loved about our trip: those quiet moments where we just stared out at nature’s beauty.

despite having a wonderful stay here, it was when we broke away from the crowds when i was in total bliss.

maggie and milly and molly and may

went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang

so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles, and

milly befriended a stranded star

whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing

which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone

as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)

it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

-e.e. cummings
