Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!


Sitting by myself on the beach

soaking in the warmth of the evening sun,

my hair dancing to the gusts of wind,

matching its steps to the musical din.

Undulating mighty waves rising high

with all its wrath and fury,

but decide to change their course

as they near  the shore,

then gently ebb to make frothy swirls

on the sands of time.

The rays of the evening sun

casting a glistening spell on the sea,

turning them into  a carpet

of shimmering diamonds, for all to see.

The sun playing hide n seek with the clouds

finally deciding to call it a day,

painting the evening sky in a crimson hue,

on its path across the horizon !

I sit there mesmerised

Admiring the vast canvas of nature

which chooses a colourful palette

to paint a picture so perfect.

from a glittering golden  glow

a few minutes ago , to the dusky beauty  now

her transformation, just magical!

I was glad to be there

to capture the artistry of the sea

In my heart forever!

    You poem describing the beach is so inviting…. I feel tempted to visit the beach again and relive the moments captured ever so seductively through your poem.

    meditation on the setting sun, in nature’s lap, with the beat of time, under the cover of the sky…….what a setting!!!!
    If words could photograph the mind at these moments ……”This would be it, this would be it, this would be it”.

    I felt it all- under the setting sun and amidst the salty breeze just yesterday. You brought my memories of yesterday’s beach visit with my family! Loved it. 🙂 🙂 You write so well!
