Sea & Sky

The sea does not meet the sky
They kiss only in our mind
In that space that recedes forever
Where we make them lovers together

When I first found this, I loved it to death, marvelling at its accuracy and all that. This morning, however, in the sweltering Great Gatsby heat, it sounds little more than a grammatically correct rhyme you could find on Japanese candy or gum or stationery or containers or drinks or…, you get the drift.

“All life is the progression towards, and the recession from, one phrase - I love you.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Offshore Pirate.
