A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Seaside had always been a magical place for me.
The sandy, warm beach mixed with the salty ocean breeze.
Tropical palms trees with the scent of sweet coconut
The chilling sensation when the cold water touches your feet.

The wave isn't just your regular shade of blue,
More like 50 shades of blue colors on a painter's palette.
Mother Nature is the most genius artist,
She makes the sea a shade of sapphire like the gemstone,
Cerulean similar to an expensive eyeshadow color,
Ultramarine at the deep, unknown ocean floor.

When everything comes alive under the Mid-August heat,
It's a summertime madness, an exhilarating festivity.
Endless parties by the beach with everlasting music playing.
People gather to celebrate and appreciate nature's greatest masterpiece.

It's an odd yet wonderful contrast really,

We are obsessed with the sea and all that it has to offer,
We adore the cold splash and the cooling salt water.
Still, we know so little about the vast ocean.
It might seem like we have explored the Seven Seas since the Age of Discovery,
Yet what truly lurks under The Realm of Poseidon remains a mystery.
What mystical creatures exist in the deep ocean trench?
What adventurous stories are left untold two thousand leagues under the sea?

As it may be all that's unknown surrounding the high seas that keep us infatuated.
Humans are naturally drawn to the uncharted lands and unexplored territories.

Perhaps it's best the ocean remains a fascinating enigma to us all,
Keep us forever wondering,
and let our imagination runs wild in our midsummer night's dreams.
