Here There Be Dragons

   Photo by Mary Bach

I hunger for
the salt of oceans,
warm winds
and the call of sea birds;
to stand at the shore,
caress the waves,
to reach across
the water
where there be dragons.

Mama Zen at the Real Garden with Imaginary Toads asked us to tell what we hungered for in 60 words or less.
