some sea-thoughts


i saw the sea
in high pressure
or in low pressure
moderation she knows not

i saw the sea
weeping its heart out
pity, none to notice
her pain or tears

i saw the sea
stretching its parched
tongue for a dropp of water
to quench her thirst

i saw the sea
looking longingly
at the dark clouds
passing by...

i saw the sea
raising beyond her
desperate to touch
the moon beyond

i saw the sea
caressing the sky
the sky bloomed
the sea smiled

i saw the sea
in my palm
i saw the sea
in my heart
i saw the sea
in your eyes

how i wish to
be one with the sea

    'i saw the sea
    in my palm
    i saw the sea
    in my heart
    i saw the sea
    in your eyes'

    Beautiful.... makes me remember Lord Krishna's words to Arjuna 'I am the biggest of biggest and the smallest of the smallest.'

    Do convey my wishes to our sea! (Report) Reply

    yes...
    be one with the sea, with its immensity;
    and yet marvel at its vastness, from afar.
    the very essense of existence, portrayed with a different perspective,
    with relation to some emotions.
    loved it.
    thank you. (Report) Reply
