The bliss of being in or near the water

Blue, aquamarine, teal, cobalt, sapphire, sea green. Sensual, languid, fun, contemplative, soothing, expansive, blissful enjoyment of being in or near the water. Floating, frothy, limpid, relaxing, plunging, calming, peaceful, laughing, playful.

Summer, the poetry of light. Mesmerized by light on water patterns

Dappled, dimpled, sun spangled, reflecting, rippled,
those fluid patterns mesmerize and fill me with peaceful joy.
