Tea With Sea Maidens

I imagine myself swimming,
deeply in the ocean, swathed in
mist and nourishing sea
creatures --
in harmony with the
silence and enlivened
by uncommon sense.
Where seamaidens take tea in small
shells on the shore, trading
the secrets of old, and sense
is restored, because it was
never broken. Like a
chain of seaweed pods,
a necklace of finery from
the peaceful deep, the living
chain of intelligence is
never broken. It is complete
and requires nothing but
thought. I swim deeply
without fear.

As usual, your images are astounding and I love the description. Where were these photos taken?

Magnificent! The pictures and the words fit so well together--a work of art in two mediums.

Great work.

I wouldn't mind hearing some of those secrets that are traded by these Sea Maidens as they drink tea.
