Draped in Kelp, Below by 8000 Feet

“Under the brine you won’t notice the dark
Can stone and steel and horses heels
Ever explain the way you feel?
From Scapa Flow to Rotherhithe,
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality.”

~ British Sea Power – from the song Carrion

:: A solitary stem in a mini kelp forest that invited us in … inspiring a lyric of the sea and brilliantine mortality.
