Bindu Borle

Rookie (1st January 1969 / New Delhi)

The sea and the solitary soul


Quiet, near the sea
But miles away from the crowd
Stands the solitary figure
Whose gaze pierces the depth
The dark sea and the dark night
Appears mysterious and too frightening
But she stands unbaffled and remote

The dark sea echoes within her
Remote and alluring…
Both are calm
But with a tumult inside
She is now closer to the sea
Herself the solitary figure
To be one with the sea
To share the isolation
And the alluring mystery

    Dear Bindu
    I am a watercolour artist and would love to use your poem to put alongside my paintings. It will not be for sale, just to compliment my pictures.

    A very evocative and beautiful poem, that reminds me of me.

    Thank You.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
