Flash fiction contest story.


For us, she stands amongst dry pebbles facing a rough and serene sea with civilization beside it but for her, she stands in a dry liberated society of hers: facing chaotic as well fantastic life of men made civilization beside.

For us, she is an abyss of the sea when her love is explored.

For us, she is a rogue wave when we annoy her rights to live.

For us, she is an ebbing tide with harmony when we are possessed by her fragility.

For us, she is an exhaling scene of a mystic sea when we are intoxicated by her natural texture.

For us, she is as salty as sea when we realize they are just her tears.

For us, she is the Greek's Oceanid when we experience her godliness.

For us, she is a mermaid when she is our pure ecstatic dream.

To epitomize, she is the creative part of our existence.

For, she is the Sea.
