Walk of awakening

Photo clicked by © Prerna

Washed away
with the tides of life
Those footprints
d i s s o l v i n g
in the vast
ocean of expectations

Thoughts bubbling
like the foam
floating on waters of reason
towards the shore
of a realm unexplored

Tides raging
towards me again,
push me forward
and away from me,
my mind, it takes
to wander
in the vast ocean

My eyes are lost, but vision is found
digging those cottony clouds,
gleaming with love and light
But oh, the sands of time
have clasped my feet, so tight

I take a deep breath
The salty ocean breeze
tingles my senses
A tingling prolonged…
and I wonder if I held on,
for too long,
both inside and outside

  1. Is it just a fact of nature that creative writers live with an abiding sense of nostalgia? Even as a little girl, I always felt like my life was going by too fast and that I couldn’t keep up with it. This piece is a reminder of that nostalgia, buried inside me in the same place where many of my creative musings live.

    1. Wow thank you so much for this beautiful comment. A lovely thought indeed! I have experienced it myself too. Thoughts pull us back in time, while we live in present and run for a future.
      Thank you so much for reading! 😊
