Ocean spray, wind blows

Salt taste on my tongue

Homeward, here I come

Vast blue surrounds me

Birds shriek wildly above

Fish in the water

Salt hangs in the air

Blue sky, blue ocean surrounds

I head home today

Wet water, so blue

I see your secrets hidden

And taste delightful

Eyes closed

My heart cries

I am back again
