Horizon - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

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
