Geetima Baruah Sarma

(April 26,1969 / Assam, India)

Horizon


Strolling on the sandy beach,
Enjoying the cool gentle breeze,
I looked at the people around.
Little children built sand-castles,
Young couples sat close together,
Elderly people enjoyed the waves.
My eyes fell upon a pair
A grandchild and a grandfather,
Talking and munching ground-nuts.
One rising sun, the other setting.
Miles apart, yet, both rising and setting
At the same place - the horizon.

    A wonderful verse, you can feel the moment in slightest
    detail, the sweet, nostalgic feeling of seeing both generation
    in the same horizon. Beautiful. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
