Waves and waves,
nothing but waves,
is all I see in silhouettes,
in the fading evening light!
The entire ocean –
from here to the far end…the horizon,
looks majestically, lavishly studded,
overflowing with countless waves!
The vast, unfathomable ocean,
restlessly rises and falls, like
some colossal giant heaving with
mighty breathing and racy heart-beat.
For relief, it reaches out desperately
to the sedentary shore that lies spread
with its vast stretches of sand
to cool down a bit.
Countless waves, sent out by the ocean,
find themselves in a furious race,
foaming, clashing with each other
to touch the sandy beach.
As they near the shore,
the waves lose their frenzied rush
and are enveloped in
a strange sense of peace
Cool and content, they
instantly turn back, homewards,
leaving behind small marine
gifts on the sand for gratitude.
Mother Nature has obviously
taught them well!
‘Nature is the best teacher always!’
