Dying I Enter My Home

Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

On the white sands of the shore
There a came a wave
It came up to my feet,
touched my feet
and washed it.

Receding,
it gave me
the bubbles and white foam
dying instantly
as it joined the mighty sea.

The sea is my home.
By dying to the shore
I enter my home.

    great imagery and wonderful imagination. I like the way you let us find our own meaning. Just the observation alone sparks a new way to see the shore.(Report)Reply

    This one is so different but the value is priceless...so good! You missing somewhere u belong to, staying at middle of road, between ur 'place' and your present 'place' always make u in between...but dont u miss the ocean? How could u think to leave shore...In between, and so still u stay in both...and what i understand (another version) , for me, i refer this as a life, we now live as human and yet going older (and death) and reach to new home, which where we belong (life after death) ...earth and heaven? A lot of things can be translated by many ways from this philosophical poem! :) :)(Report)Reply

    I believe that there is an ocean of thoughts behind these few words that express each of your emotion perfectly.Honestly I had to gaze this work for minutes for understanding the actual thought...it is ur homesickness that I sensed......you were given opportunities and you ventured out of your home but then giving a gratitude which existed not for so much time like bursting bubbles you returned to ur own home....
    flawlessly mindblowing..
    I guess u r missing India very much.(Report)Reply

    Every instant is a death, rebirth and renewal. The human consiousness and the body are wonderful elements, when linked to the soul.(Report)Reply
