I break through the deep green caress of the sea.
My eyes take a moment to adjust to the beauty and wonder that truly lies below the surface of the seemingly dark and brooding sea.
Another moment passes as my unseeing eyes take in the wonders that lie in front of me as I begin to descend into the abyss. The comfortingly cold water welcomes me home as I breathe through my oxygen mask. I try my best to devote my attention to breathing but I fail miserably. I fail and fall for the charm of the alluring sea as I feel the fishes swimming around me.
I see the mesmerising shades of pink and purple and blue that the fishes carry and I am dumbfounded. How can I not be? Witnessing the canvas before me, one decorated with fishes and corals and the green waters, brings me comfort and serenity. It makes me feel the rhythm of the waves in my very soul.
The descent begins as the fishes carry on… I see the coral closing in on me as I stretch out a careful hand and caress the surface. It is hard and scratchy but my hand doesn’t feel the pain… not when my eyes have never seen anything so captivating. The browns of the coral contrast against the blue-green shades of the water, together forming an unforgettable scenery in my mind.
As I further swim towards the bottom of the sea, I come across underwater plants in shades that I never thought existed. They stand their ground as the water slowly harbours them. Without knowing, I stretch my hand out… craving to touch them. The plants falter under my touch. They feel like the softest of pillows and the most delicate of things.
I can feel my hair float around and my feet floating in the calm sea. I can feel the soft silence melting around my ears and enveloping me. The bubbles around me rise up and fill my vision for a few seconds.
The moment I feel myself ascending, my heart breaks. As I break through the surface and deeply inhale, my words melt into nothing. I have absolutely no words to describe what I felt in those beautiful moments. It is almost as if I have left a small part of me and that part is beckoning to me.
It is calling me home and who am I to not give in to the serenity and the overwhelming happiness that the sea offers?
Hello everyone! I am back, yay
My exams ended finally and the first thing I did is go for a scuba dive! It is literally a memory that I never want to forget… so, I wrote a whole piece about it, ofc!😂
