Life is cool by the pool

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.

All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.

A garden by the sea

Life is the flower for which love is the honey.

Victor Hugo

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

Good sea vibes

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

Postcards from Saint-Malo

If you never say goodbye to the best things in your life there are things you don’t appreciate at all.

Hard as a rock

Don’t worry about me
Just wait and see
I’m as hard as a rock
Always around the clock
My spirit is sharpen
And my body protected by an iron curtain
Family and friends are my safe haven
Keep dreaming you’re in heaven
I’ll protect the ones I love…always
Life sends me signs in mysterious ways
I embrace the unknown
Because I am as hard as a stone.

Secret beach

Golden sand
Shells in my hand
Deep see
Come with me
Foamy waves
I can almost hear the whales
Cool breeze
No worries, please!
Seagulls flying
Keep trying
Hidden treasures
My life is all that matters
Bare feet
You are so sweet
Golden silence
Freedom is my guidance.

A dream come true

Winter trees were drawn on the sand
Is it possible?
Yes, I’ve done it with my own hand
Maybe the long cold days
Wanted to be kissed by the sun
And have fun
For a change!
Horses dance by the sea
We are galloping
Just you and me
What a beautiful dream
Who said I am dreaming?
My eyes are wide open
1…2…3…
Give it a try
Come with me!

Tea for four

Deep blue sky
Mysterious sea
Thick sand
Invigorating breeze
My hair is a mess
And so is my life
Upside down
Empty chairs
Empty heart
I see my city
From the other side
I’m an outsider
Until when?
If only I knew…
Meanwhile, take a seat
The water is boiling
Life is always better
After a cup of tea.

Golden sand

Take me to the place where the sun never sleeps
Forget everything, except your dreams
Let’s sail away. Shall we?
I want to feel the golden sand under my bare feet.

We will live in the summerland
Trust me and hold my hand
You won’t need any luggage
Your belongings are just a mirage.

Pick up the shells on your path
Release your soul from the past.
A new day is waiting for you
Make a wish, it will come true.
