Photo Friday: Private

Our Hidden Paradise

One more day left for us to stay. A day in a land we both not knew.
Our feet brought us to a muddy beach tossing tides with empty rum bottles.
We let the rain pass, under a cottage, the sea whipping our feet.
Then we walked on, explored further, til we reached a legendary bay.

We jumped in a boat not knowing where it will go
And we passed by islands thru serene waters
As we reached our last stop, we sighed; realized -
This time, the waves brought us to the perfect spot.

We swam with fishes to their reefs
Hidden beneath the crystal waters we dive
Below, we discovered the beauty of another world
Colors explored in new dimensions, lying more in the deep.

Then as the tides grew lower and sea shells have been gathered,
We walked through the shore from one end to the other
Capturing each detail of the island's magnificence
As a dog lone bear witness to us, as we fall in love -

How did this small island captivate our souls?
The tranquility of its waters hiding the secrets of its pureness?
Maybe the legend was how it captured strangers with their heart
And buries them to the sand, making them loathe leaving

Or maybe we just see ourselves in this hidden haven
Away from people, away from chaos and greed
A sanctuary for our frantic minds, an asylum we long for.
We, in our own private paradise...

Too bad it’s only for a day, too bad it's not forever
Too bad we have to leave, and eventually be separated.
But in the midst of my muddled city life
I still run away from it all.. to meet you there,
   in our special somewhere.

note: this is my entry for Photo Friday.. for this moogie day..

This is a beautiful interpretation of the IF topic. The photo is both lovely and somehow lonely.
