Home is Where the Ocean Is

Summer is here once again.
The breeze is warm,
I smell salt on the wind.
The same sandy beach between my toes,
The same waters I learned to swim.
Sun burn on my nose,
To the Ocean I dive in.
I submerse myself in the waters of the Atlantic
Warmer than the West Coast Thankfully
Cold, I simply cannot handle it!
Further out I paddle faithfully,
For my mother ocean to keep me sane,
this is my therapy,
to soothe this migraine.
This place gives me energy,
a weakness with a name.
Pleasure Island, NC.
A place hidden with fortunes
and undiscovered fame.
Never could I stray from the ocean
my passions would never be fulfilled
and I would never be the same.

Dedicated to my Dad on Father's Day 2013
The man who introduced me to the ocean and educated me about it and gave me reason to love appreciate and respect it.

    Being from the East Coast myself (Jersey), I'm quite familiar with NC. I almost moved to Charlotte some years ago. The NC beaches are straight riveting. This was a wonderfully atmospheric piece!

    Tranquil and peaceful. The other concept of "deep"...completely submerged in freedom. I loved it!!!

    It is a VERY beautiful place :) Born and raised in Wilmington, NC. If you ever get cold it stays pretty warm year round haha. Beach days on Halloween and wearing shorts throughout December is quite common here. Definitely worth a visit
