There she stands, all alone. The young woman on the bluff, the wind blows her long hair away from her face as she looks out to see...
Many would see her as lonely, standing there in solitude. But she is content. The wind ruffles her long dress, but she doesn't care... as the loses herself to the ocean's beauty.
Some would see her as sad, with her expression relaxed. But she is smiling inwardly, enjoying the peace that the sea brings her, the soothing sound of the waves relaxes her.
It is here that she is not bound by the rules of society or the frustrations of others. Here she can simply enjoy what the Creator has made. Simply relishing in the moment as the sun cast's it's setting reflections on the vast ocean.
With out a care in the world, she could stand there forever. Watching the waves as the come crashing majestically into the rocks, sending a mystical spray into her face. As she stands there she wishes she could be more of a part of that. Entering the fridgid water and living in it's depths.
She wishes that she could cast aside all that she has on land and join her friends beneath the waves. Suicide is not what she has in mind, but rather the becoming of a new creature.. she wishes she could grow gills and live under the waves, swimming freely.
She slowly comes back to reality as she sees a small seal poke it's head out of the water, a tiny smile comes to her lips as she sees it bob in and out of the waves. She remains standing on the low bluff, surrounded by small purple flowers.
As she stands there in quiet meditation one may wonder what the future holds for her, but she knows that one day she will return to the sea. It is calling her, asking her to come and play in the waves and chase the creatures beneath in a playful game of tag.
The sun has disappeared over the horizon and the sky turns grey in twilight, but the waves never cease in thier coming. Always will they come, one after another, soothing all those around in their quiet ways.
The woman turns back to civilization, knowing in her heart that this is indeed her calling. And she steps down from the bluff she comes back to reality as her friends call to her. She gives one final look to the elegant sea and her smile only grows, as she knows that one day she will live beside the powerful waters and be content for all the years to come...
