What does the sea know that i don't i wonder, as i look at the wallpaper on my laptop. It's one of my favorites among the pictures i've clicked. Water always soothes my senses with it's pleasing aqua blue and white waves brushing the rich brown sand, erasing all the footprints folks left behind.
The sun was setting, but i don't recall why i did not want it to be a part of this particular picture. I think it would have spoilt the serenity this one offered me. Or maybe because i just did not want it. There need not be a reason for every action, should there? It's nice to just do something sometimes only 'cos you feel like it... Totally impulsive! It's unlike me, but it's refreshing at times.
The sea has always been my favorite spot. Not a river, not the waterfalls, but the sea, the ocean. I would love a desert too for that matter though i haven't seen one in my life. One common thing in both of these is their vast spread and the beautiful fact that both seas and deserts don't seem to end.. ever! I think i like things that last forever. That go on, spreading love in all directions as they tread through their journey to the unknown.
Not able to see the end, lets us live our life assuming an end we expect. It's disappointing when things don't work out as we see it, but the hopeless hope keeps you going. How i wish i became a lil droplet and joined the expedition of the sea. I would visit new places, meet new people, erase more footprints left behind, erase those in my own head too. Most of all, i would get to remain pretty calm in the midst, and appear full of energy at the shore.
That's the way i like to be anyway. I like spending a lot of time by myself. I've yet again started enjoying my company. I guess i'm in love with myself all over again. They say one is never lonely if he/she loves the person he/she is alone with. It's true... totally. It's such a humid weather down here right now, damn! And i look longingly onto the picture, wishing to just be one with it. To feel the cold waves lash against me. To walk into it's depth till the water is at my neck and i can still breathe, and then swim my way back to the shore, and feel ALIVE!
I ran into the sea - 'What do you know that i don't? '
Wondering aloud, only to be silenced,
By the howl of the wind, the sound of the waves,
'Be one with me and you'll know', it raced.
'Take me with you, somewhere far away'..
'Come along, but only for one night and one day'!
