It is First Line Friday! Welcome and let’s get writing.

Your line for this week is:

Most spoke of the low but omnipresent rumble of water or its dulcet lap against a hull, but that was not how he missed the sea.

Most spoke of the low but omnipresent rumble of water or its dulcet lap against a hull, but that was not how he missed the sea, to him sea was home. He had long ago forgotten his original home. The one where he was born and lived with his parents and siblings before he joined the navy. It seemed a lifetime ago. After thirty-five years in navy, and another fifteen as the captain of a cruise ship, he could not even visualize living on land. But this was now going to be his future. He was retiring and the little hut he had bought would be his home now. He was glad that it was near the coast, not far from the rolling and roaring sea waves.

  1. Oh… such kismet. The poem I pulled up to work on today was from 2012… a poem about sailing at sea and the ocean… not sure I can use this first line… but certainly the first line’s theme runs through it…

  2. It’s funny to read this after my pictorial virtual visit back to where I was born. It’s easy to think you could be writing about my sister and brother-in-law who retired and moved back to the “rock”, a.k.a. Newfoundland. Life is funny sometimes.
