Mediterranean Sun

Mediterranean Sea: FethiyeTurkey

You are my sunshine
set in a Mediterranean sea
so far away from my country

That I could bring you home
it’s such extraordinary,
a perfect memory,
and a pride of me

You are my sunshine
perfectly round and beautifully orange
that the sea water is willing to change color

Lovely! I really liked the part about the sea changing colour! Well done!

I live 2 mins away from water here in our harbour. I've always lived near water and cannot imagine how sad I'd be withuot it nearby. This is lovely.

The image of the water changing color is perfect! I could feel your sense of isolation in this piece, and I wish you well.

I echo the others about the sentiment of the water changing color. Very evocative!

@ cj: I'm doing good now, thank you... talking about isolation I felt (when I took this picture a year ago)... well, it can be... :)

I love this well done piece of wishing and hoping along with the loneliness, especially since my favorite color is orange and I live near the ocean !
