Whispering Silences

A unique azure blanket

sea view with boatsNorah was standing out on the balcony looking at the view. The sea was spread before her like a tranquil azure blanket diffusing into the sandy coast. She let her mind wander into the horizon, beyond the ships anchored outside the harbour. It was amazing how something as simple as water, billions of tonnes of water, could calm her so soothingly.

Norah, let’s go!”, Diane called out to her.

It didn’t take long for her to grasp the excitement in that prompt. She cleared the clouds from her mind and let the sun diffuse its rays onto every inch of her body. Besides, she could use a tan!

The guys were already playing volleyball on the beach and the girls quickly grabbed a towel, sun lotion and their hats and rushed to join them.

Summer was about having fun. About swimming in the sea, playing on the beach with friends, relaxing and enjoying yourself. Letting your mind wander away from the painful reality of everyday life.

It’s up to you whether you let it wander back though…


Also part of Trifecta Writing Challenge – the prompt word was grasp:

1: to take or seize eagerly
2: to clasp or embrace especially with the fingers or arms
3: to lay hold of with the mind : comprehend

  2. Mmm. Wandering back…

    That feels like a complete contrast, nevertheless set up. Mmmm. Thank you.


  3. I believe my mind wandered to reminiscences of the ocean once I read your beautiful descriptions. I was reluctant to bring it back.
    Thank you very much for linking up. Please remember to return to vote!

    Now I really wish I had the money to go to the beach this year. Alas, I have only your piece this summer.


  5. I don’t live near water, but the ocean (or any large expanse of water, really) can be soothing. I’m glad she could get the clouds from her mind and absorb the day (and the sun!)


  6. I live near the Gulf of Mexico, but wait until fall to enjoy the beach. You’ve captured that bliss of being near the ocean though. Makes me long for October.


  7. Not letting your mind wander back would be a great skill; I need to work on that one!


  8. Nice. I’d love to find a nice view, away from home, to stare into and forgot everything for a while. But who doesn’t?

  9. It isn’t always easy to have the strength to be in charge of your own choices. However, all things being equal, erring on the side of positivity is the way to go, if you can let go. Or, as the poet once said, “Don’t let your baggage define your travels.” 🙂 Thanks for sharing your very good work.
