Ode To Shells Poem by Dr. M. Asim Nehal

Ode To Shells

Rating: 5.0


Lying lifeless on the shore of a beach
I wonder who used me as protection

On million waves, I travelled across
The journey very few will understand

The heat of the sand is no better
Than the darkness of the sea

Is this my destiny, lying on the seashore and
Waiting for someone to pick me up

I don't mind if put in a fish pot
Inside, someone's house

Pick me up, and listen to me.
I want you to hear my wants and desires.

Travelling across millions of waves we watch shore of tender perception. Lying lifeless on the shore provokes thought. Heat and cold both are perceived in seashore sand. But life is well nourished and protected by God and self effort. The destiny of life can be recognized soon by his grace. An interesting sharing is done here.10

Last line is amusing: I want you to hear my wants and desires. May be this is the reason why nobody wants to pick it up.
