100 Words – Water Baby

She was born a water baby. Even at just a crawl she sought out water. Puddles, then streams, rivers, lakes and finally the ocean. Her heart nearly broke from excitement at her first sight of waves. She sat down among them, knowing she had found home and peace.

After that she never lived far from an ocean. She couldn’t always see it but she knew it was there. She could taste it on the breeze.

When it was her time she went to it. Waved goodbye to life and walked in. The waves accepted her and fed her to forever.
