Poem: Ebb & Flow

Written after a snorkelling expedition off Plymouth Hoe where I discovered a beautiful little nook where some tiny Pollack fry were floating in a bed of lush, green algae! It was so beautiful and so peaceful to just float and observe this tiny microcosm of life! Being underwater is such a nourishing and connecting space for me to just lose myself in the wonders and magnitude of life.

Ebb & Flow

I let the ebb and flow,

the ebb and flow

carry me, carry me to and fro

as I watch the tiny fish fry move as I do

with the ebb and flow

the ebb and flow.

The vibrant green of the algae

swaying with the ebb and flow

the ebb and flow

and all the treasures which lie beneath my beating feet

drifting with the ebb and flow

the ebb and flow.

From the sunlit zone above

to the depths of the deep below,

we all dance with the ebb and flow,

the ebb and flow.

Nature lover, wanderer & noise maker. Hello, I'm Lizzie! I live in a city by the sea and a stones throw away from beautiful Dartmoor National Park. If I had my way I would always be wandering on the land, on the shore and in the sea but alas life gets in the way! This blog is an outlet for the creativity I find in nature in words, pictures and art. I hope you enjoy what you find here, Love, light & happiness, Lizzie
