Ramesh T A (28th August 1950 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
The Presence of Sea!
Searching for Nature I see only sea everyday!
All the place has turned into concrete jungle!
Free open sea before me with waves is calm;
Go straight! You see Andaman Nicobar islands,
Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, .....
Philippines, Pacific Ocean, America, Atlantic
Ocean, Europe -Africa, Arabian sea and India!
Ships are navigating through all seas of world;
World Wars have sunk many merchant ships in
Oceans of world with treasures unrecoverable!
Only pirates and private sea explorers have gone
Deep inside the seas to see for treasures ever!
Colonial merchant ships carrying golds and silver
Torpedoed by Nazis are lying partially hidden
In the ocean beds of world yet to be recovered!
Only such thoughts flow whenever I see sea......
But calm sea makes me feel nothing of this effect!
Without sea waves and wind can anyone feel......
The presence of sea in the night time ever at all....?
