Water lot of it on Earth

One thinks of Earth as soil and sand,

But most of it is not:

A lot more water than of land

Is what this planet’s got.


In fact, when seen from outer space

What isn’t sea is cloud;

It’s not too often you can trace

The land-shapes standing proud.


From our new balcony.

From our new balcony

We see some sea from balcony;

View from restaurant down the road.

From a beachfront restaurant a few minutes away.

Sea scenes  from down the road;

Durban harbour and the sea

From the Berea home of Br-i-Law  and Sr-i-Law.

 When seeing sister, then we see,

Of sea, another load.

Pink clouds

But there is something that we get

In even more supply –

Sea, sky and rainbow

Both over dry and over wet

There is a lot of sky!

    I do like the view from your balcony, and sky too, but as you imply, we all have a lot of that
