My message to humanity “let’s keep our oceans/seas clean so our future generations can experience what we have today.” 😊

I recently took a short summer vacation to visit my hometown which is near the coast. The last time I visited, was 6 months ago. So I really needed some family bonding time and a personal get away near the ocean. I had the most amazing time as usual. I was able to unwind and travel to new places nearby. For the first time, I dint go alone. My cousins accompanied me for my new ventures. We have been to the light house at the tallest hills in the city, few undiscovered beaches away from the city and for the 3rd time in my life to an estuary.
The estuary has provided habitat for many fish nurseries. Part of the bank was besieged by fishermen 👳🏽huts with their splendid canoes. A few of ’em boated down for fishing🎣. The midsummer sunlight dispersed through the estuary made it resplendent, while I basked in it.🌞😎I was able to envision few gliding fishes🐟, lots of seagulls🐦, godwits, eagles and herons. I rode on a canoe 🚣🏼 from the bank to the sea. We also took a closer look by having a long walk by the bay🌊🐚, listening to the waves. I missed diving though. One of the best nature therapies I had in a long time. We did trekking in some parts.
Also visiting the light house at the Dolphin hills was exhilarant. I was born in this city but we have never been to this place, so I guess it was a long overdue. Viewing most of the ocean (Bay of Bengal), the ship harbor, the city, the hills🌄,the trees🌴, the azure sky and the sunset 🌅was eye-popping. I was enthralled by what nature had to offer. Vizag is still recovering after cyclone hudhud.
I visited my kith and kin after a long time. Our natter lasted with joy and laughter. We reminisced our childhood and our lost grandparents. Not to forget, my favorite food mom prepared for me everyday, the petty fights and laughter I shared with my sister 👭& parents👨👩👧👧, watching our favorite television together was a convivial atmosphere. Time has shortened everyday, I dint realize 2 weeks were done in a blink. 😞 Oh! well career calls but these memories are preserved. I’m grateful to God for this vacation. 😇
“Hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
― Van Morrison
There is something about the ocean, It’s enigmatic. I’m engrossed by its beauty. People pay big bucks to travel to islands, to the beautiful beach resorts for some peace and quiet, some adventure and leisure. For me it’s more than that. Whenever I hang out at the beach I feel like I am home, a place where you feel safe and secure like you were in your mother’s arms. I shriek like a little kid whenever I hear the ocean waves. I’m on cloud nine, surrounded by the joys of life. Anytime a friend invites me to the beach, my face would glow and grin like if I won a pageant. Ocean is like my friend, my natural shrink. May be I was a mermaid once. This love made me explore underwater, though diving, which I miss doing now. I can never forget my first diving experience, I felt like I was inside a giant aquarium and I wanted to stay there until my O2 lasted.
I have enjoyed snorkeling every weekend.
I liked taking a tiny boat to watch dolphins in the middle of the davao gulf.
Ocean eyes are blue, like the blue waters held in God’s palms
It’s irony ocean is blue when it actually brings happiness
The shore placates with dulcet tones of the waves, underwater renders a quiescent mind with absolute silence (like the silence you would probably find in the outer space)
The waves embrace your feet while walking the bay as the sea shells adorn the ocean
Underwater hails you with starfish, the clown fishes, the sea horses and many more creatures and many colorful corals, an inexplicable beauty
A stupendous view when I snorkel; up is the sky, beneath the ocean, I wouldn’t ask for anymore
I enjoy the sun rays while I swim with the fish, sunkissed and adored by the nature
Dear ocean, You make me feel small splashing the bigger view of life
Reality can be beautiful too, Just look at the ocean
I feel alone when I don’t visit you, I bequeath my love in perpetuity
(above poem was written by me after being inspired by the lyrics of the owl city, I know I will improve it. one step at a time.)
