Star Fishing

By BlueRoom
Here's another one for those of you prepared to leave the real world behind for a minute. Many thanks for all your thoughts on the last one, many of which were quite inspirational and should eventually lead me towards more pictures in a similar vein. Special thanks to Source, Paree and Mavis who blessed it with their Awards. Smile

I don't know how I came across this enchanting little scene, where it was or how I might get back there. As always your thoughts are very welcome... the sillier the better.

When I was in my teens we crossed the Atlantic from Canada back to Norway on a freight ship. At night I would sit at the bow of the ship as it coursed through the ocean, watching phosphorescence in the water - we call this morild in Norwegian and I like that word much better than that long English word I think I managed to spell correctly.

I know what morild is, but in another reality it might just be bits of stars that have fallen into the water and continue to glow there.


You might do another take on stars while listening to Perry Como's Catch a Falling Star........

So that's where all my sparkle went! And some b*gger's pinching it all. Hopefully he'll send some my way.
Totally enchanting.

We can't get back to childhood unfortunately, though some of us do our best.
Isn't it wonderful how images can stir memories? Anne remembers morild, I remember the first time I saw glowworms, in the New Forest, not far short of 60 years ago...
The pink bucket is the masterstroke.

Lovely image Eric, beautifully made. I'm just on my way for a walk along the sea; I'll keep an eye out for those stars, I'd like to catch some as well! Smile

After fishing, when you clean your fish and throw the heads and guts into the ocean the mud sharks come and grab them. They have eyes that glow in the dark. Maybe he has just cleaned his catch of the evening. A clever whimsical creation.
