It's happened to be very picturesque, sexy sea.
PS Exciting, arousing and awakening.

>> The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.

"The voice of the sea speaks to the soul."

Sometimes with an accent...

Sea: 'Sappnin soul?

Soul: Yo homie!

Other times...

Sea: Bonjour

Soul: Salutations

Then again...

Sea: ¡Hola

Soul: ¿Cómo estás hoy

Or...

Sea: привет

Soul: Как вы сегодня

And so on...

"The Awakening" from the slumber of a dull existence, only to fall under the spell of the sea, what if we all listened to the sirens, what then?

I can hear the ocean in my coffee cup. It's saying, "Don't forget the creamer...French vanilla, if you have it."

Ah, the sea...

"With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me. "
--- Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the Agaean, and it brought
Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow
Of human misery; we
Find also in the sound a thought,
Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.
--- Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach

The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite.
--- Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

The sky o’erarches here—we feel the undulating deck beneath our feet,
We feel the long pulsation—ebb and flow of endless motion;
The tones of unseen mystery—the vague and vast suggestions of the briny world—the liquid-flowing syllables,
The perfume, the faint creaking of the cordage, the melancholy rhythm,
The boundless vista, and the horizon far and dim, are all here,
And this is Ocean’s poem.
---Walt Whitman, In Cabin´d Ships at Sea

"Legolas Greenleaf long under tree
In joy thou hast lived. Beware of the Sea!
If thou hearest the cry of the gull on the shore,
Thy heart shall then rest in the forest no more."
--- J. R. R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.

My experience has been a little different. The sea speaks to me and says, "Stay the hell away, if you know what's good for you!"

On every occasion when I have visited the sea, I have had an unpleasant experience. On more than one occasion, I very nearly drowned, and I'm a fairly good swimmer. After the last experience, I listen to that little warning voice very attentively.

We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit

I was born on a small island and still live on a small island, and the sea does speak to my soul. But I have many times visited the mountains and they, too, speak to my soul. I think it is the majesty of both. I feel small, and almost overwhelmed by both. And yet I miss one when in the presence of the other. I love them both.

One single being,but there´s no blood.
One single caress,death or rose.
The sea comes and reunites our lives
and attacks and divides and sings alone
in the night and day and man and creature.
The essence: fire and cold : movement.

ME. Pablo Neruda.
