“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.
