Etching Our Destiny!

The ruby sun readies to dip

into the shimmering waters,

Horizon curls into a speckled band

as twilight kisses it,

The panoramic seascape changes color as

the saline breeze whispers softly

Gentle darkness descends to the rhythm of

the receding tide

The glowing luna enters the timeless expanse

of star studded sky.

We walk hand in hand watching the ebbing

waves wane our footprints,

The tangerine glow of the fairy lights

sets a perfect ambiance

As we etch our dreamy destiny of togetherness

in the fragile sands of time.

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!

 

 

 

Juxtaposing Mornings!

A typical weekday morning in urban households is a mad rush against time. In most Indian homes, the chores and noise decibels  are directly proportional 🙂 . Waking up kids, getting them ready for school on time, the mixer whirring in the background, preparation of breakfast and feeding your picky child, packing lunch boxes for school and office, maid working around, the doorbell ringing, cell phone beeping,….it is literally a battle zone where every minute is crucial. And  god forbid, on just one of those bad days you hit the snooze button an extra few times, then the domino effect takes place spiraling the chaos beyond control. By the time you step out of home to head to work, you are totally exhausted. I think many will relate to this cacophonic morning ritual.

Change of scene….

Last week we happened to go on a short vacation. I woke up to a beautiful leisurely morning. Stepping out of the room, I had all the time to myself.  Believe me, nothing prepared me for the marvel of nature that was to unfold.

Idling on the hammock, I watched the blue yonder peeping between the green parasol of leaves, with its glorious heavenly smile. Wisps of clouds drifted along merrily. The gentle  rays of dawn cascaded coyly between the verdant hues with a prismatic glow. It was truly a sight to behold. The moist sea breeze softly caressed my body, whispering stories of the ebbing waves. The plethora of sounds of nature I heard, felt surreal. The chirps of the many birds, trill of the insects, rustling of the leaves, buzzing bees along with meandering butterflies, greeting pretty blooms and roar of the ocean waves….. Nature’s morning raga was divinely melodious. I lost the sense of time, enthralled by its picturesque harmony.

I couldn’t help but mull over the juxtaposing mornings!

Healing Sea!

ic: Akshay Premjith@ pixabay

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!

Whispering waves!

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

sea-mist

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!

Sunrise at the beach!

Early dawn enrobed in a misty cloak

letting out a yawn in lazy slumber

under the cool winter breeze

the pale blue waves ebb to the shore

deserted catamarans dance

to the rhythm of the tidal swell.

The horizon readying to welcome

the brightest star in all its glory

beckoning the birds to rise

and play their chirpy melody.

Streaming sunlight casts its rays

the sea turns to a crimson blush

they shimmer in a perfect union

to usher in a glorious day!

Beach

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!
