Street! Now isn’t this a perfect street to take a stroll by the sea, with the blue sky and serene waves for company?
Stray dogs enjoying their afternoon siesta!
Sunrise, heralding a new day, gifting us a “today” to be alive to each moment of it!
Rusted, but not routed 😉
Ruins, do you hear my story?
Seashore, Ah! But I don’t see anyone selling sea shells by the seashore…

Mystic Moonlight!

The torrents of emotions

created a tempest within me.

I escaped home, to the sea

my refuge.

The darkness of the impenetrable sky,

roar of the undulating waves,

mirrored my perturbed mind.

With not a soul around,

just me,

I let the floodgates of the

incessant tears flow,

merging into the salty waters.

The scintillating  pregnant moon

appeared from behind the broody clouds,

she looked down at me with a loving smile.

Captivated by her warmth

I felt my tears dry.

Her benign radiance comforted

my emotional ripples.

The dazzle of luminous stars illuminated my heart,

serenading it, to complement the gleaming waters.

I sat there mesmerized

beneath the surface of the night,

feeling my pain being washed away

until,

the promise of a new dawn embraced me.

Sun n Sea – A Harmony!

Eastern sky glistens

the dreamy sea slumbers on

indolent waves ebb

 

golden sunshine smiles

sun-drenched tides unfurl magic

turquoise melange

 

emits a bright trail

kisses the western skyline

lulls the blue expanse

 

oceanic tides

weaves an endless saga of

cadenced harmony!

 

 

 

Healing Sea!

Fractured dreams lie scattered

pathos looms large

over whelming emotions of life ebb

raucous din reverberates.

 

As I walk on the sandy shores at morn

timeless whispers of the undulating waves

play a song ,

the consonance of the tides

ring in a reflective melody.

 

I watch my footprints in the sands of time,

to realize, my illusionary myopic worries

seem to be a minuscule speck,

in the expansive vastness.

 

The damp redolence of saline breeze

cleanse my emotional core

washing away the chaotic cache,

filling me with propitious vigor!

Paradise!

IMG-20190508-WA0035

The shimmering velvety sea

relaxes under the gentle rays of the sun

wisps of clouds stray in the canopy of blue

the endless horizon lost in a reverie

listening to the tales of the zephyr

the fresh ocean scent lingers on

slumbering waves, in its sapphire robe

 embrace the shore, kissing it

A panoramic vista of serenity

envelopes a sense of calm

opening the gateway to paradise!

 

Photo Challenge – Vista!

In response to Tuesday photo challenge #161, by Dutch goes the photo.

Prompt : Vista

Recently we visited Cinque Terre, the once isolated string of 5 fishing villages (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso) on the rugged Italian coastline, which today is a popular tourist place. Still maintaining its quaint old world charm, it boasts of some spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea, from atop the cliff. The best way to explore these villages once you get off the train, is by foot. It is dotted with tiny cafes, hiking trails, small vineyards. The houses perched on the steep landscapes, with their vibrant colors make it a visual delight.

Whispering waves!

In response to Sue’s write photo prompt, to write a story, humor or poetry in response to the image below.

A nonet for the above photo prompt!

(Nonet (9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1) progression downward of syllables)

Winds lull the sea , gentle demeanor

the beach drenched in an azure haze

slumbering in its blue robe

the slothful waves whispers

secret messages

embedded deep

 across the

 sands of

 time!
