The Sea

Blue
The Sea
It comes, goes.
For aeons it knows.
Aware…

Blauw
De Zee
Ze komt, gaat.
Aeonen lang weet ze.
Bewust…

Thank you Catherine for another Elfje also in the original Dutch.

  • Thought the last line was brilliant – kind of shivery and sounds like the sea
    Although I can’t read Dutch I enjoyed reading the shapes of the words in the author’s mother tongue
    Thank you!

    • Thank you very much Freya Pickard, thank you for your comment. Yes there is definitely a sense of alertness in this Elfje… for your information Freya, Dutch is not my mother tongue, I am French but I have been living in this beautiful, energetic country for more than 3 decades now so I am pretty much Dutch minded: I also dream in Dutch so I try to keep on the good work!
