A to Z Challenge – Nature and I
Just sitting by the shore, watching the endless sea, conjures up so many emotions in me.
The slothful seas,
slumbering waves yawn,
ebbing gently onto the shore,
pacific tides humming soft lullabies.
The enraged sea,
swollen with ire,
thunderous rumbles lash out,
the undulating waters pulsate a tempestuous crescendo.
Their enigmatic depths have always been a source of inspiration, awe and fear to some extent. It is as if there is a world of secrets buried beneath their depths. Its ever-changing persona is the only constant. Each current, tide and wave scripts a change in its core, while outwardly it appears to be the same.
No man can step into the same river twice, as it is not the same river and he is not the same man – Heraclitus
Like the sea, experiences, environment and people influence us in many ways. We are constantly changing, evolving as a result. Though outwardly we appear the same, our personality is ever changing due to these external influences. We are not the same as we were a few years ago.
Like the sea, we are continually moving. Nothing stays with us. What remains is just the memories of some people who touched us as waves. Some bring in a sense of calm and balance in us while some elicit anger and negative emotions. But just like the endless sea, the saga of mankind continues for generations with “change” as the only constant.
