Child Of The Sea And Air


Born from the essence of life,

You survive the harsh conditions

Striving to make something of yourself

Despite the sneaky predators

Those are trying to get you down.

Although they’re unpredictable,

Your parents provide you with everything you need.

You fly through the raging storms

To guide the hapless navigators to safety

Regardless of the cost.

Like the paper boat of our childhood,

You float on the calm waters of the sea,

Sometimes coming to greet us on the golden sands

During our summer vacation at the beach.

When you decide to go to your father,

You spread your beautiful wings

And soar into the heavens above.

Your laughter echoes across the seas

As we see you gliding on Zephyr.




Is the essence of life

That runs in our veins.

Together with the fertile earth

And the light of the holy sun,

It helps the flora grow harmoniously.

It becomes the stage

For the gracious swans in summertime

And for the ballerinas in the cold season.

It shows the true reflection

Without hiding our flaws.

Its murmur is part of nature’s symphony,

We find inner peace near it.

It gains healing powers in the House of God.

Could it be a gate to other worlds?


The Conch Shell


Somewhere on the golden beach,

Aphrodite left us a beautiful gift

To help us listen to the song of sea

Sang by Poseidon’s daughters.
