Land's Edge

Land's Edge

A Story by Kinsey
"

Short story for now. Mermaid story later.

"
The dry, quiet hush of the tall grass blowing in the wind. A slight breeze is all it takes and it's a sound that tends to blend in to the background. When it's gone you realize how much you took it for granted. The whooshing of the water. Roaring sometimes, low and gentle others. Always a constant. During the day sunlight reflects off the surface like a flash. Piercing the eyes and forcing a squint. At night deceiving. How close is waters edge? Salty air, hint of fish ever pungent. A full palette on the senses, but never offensive or overwhelming. On stormy days you hide inside and listen to it rage around you. The power of Mother Nature at land's end. Sunny sands and warmth make your soul feel replenished and bright. Weightless and floating, like a bubble. Who would ever want to leave a place like this?

The mystery of the ocean, fear of it's unknown runs deep. The bottomless fathoms and inky blackness harbor only the worst of our imaginations, but what if even the most magical and improbable were also there? A shine of shimmering scales, a small melody chimes at the edge of recognition.
