Sit in reverie, and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind..


A child walking along a seashore. You never can tell what small pebble it will pick up and store away among its treasured things.

Every time I have some moment on a seashore, or in the mountains, or sometimes in a quiet forest, I think this is why the environment has to be preserved.

It is pleasurable, when winds disturb the waves of a great sea, to gaze out from land upon the great trials of another.

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?

I guess you went to for a holiday recently, that too to a beach .. :P

If you ask me .. I do it all the time ... as most of the time I am alone .. even in the crowd

Seeing the pic of the beach, few lines came to me :

Walking along the sands of time, with water splashing on my feet
I yearn for a hand to hold, a lap for my head to confess my defeats
for the world I am the un-vanquished, like the hills near the sea
look close eh friend, I am too eroded by thee....

@Vijay : "Prevent" ?!!

It's been a long time...

Jinxed Pixie said...

not fair..
you asking these highbrow questions like that person in mahabharat said when this king went to ask him why he doesn't find happiness...
i think there is no excuse for NOT preserving nature...no, not even industrialization..
any society that doesn't respect nature is not worth any respect...

We need to preserve environment for so many reasons but I never thought from this perspective.

Nice :-)

Sophie said...

Vijayshryaln -- There are some other reasons as well though!

Som -- I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.

Sea has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.

Nice lines! :)

Latin Sardar -- It's time for it now..

Jinxed Pixie -- Why it's unfair?

And ye we should preserve it!

Komal -- Thanx and welcome buddy! :)

Sophie said...

Jinxed Pixie -- Even 2 year old kid is overly mature for his or her age these days... My niece is greatest example of it.. & Tum bhi kuch kam nahi ho... :)

Sophie said...

BB -- hehe! ;)

I don't live near a beach. And the nearest beach is i dunno where.
I do like to walk a lot. Get to see a lot then. =)

Sophie said...

Ya true, the other day when I was walking through the woods, I saw a rabbit standing in front of a candle making shadows of people on a tree. ;~)
