On The Beach Poem by Valsa George

On The Beach

Rating: 4.9
 


When the world
begins to close in on me
I walk to the beach,
not too far away.
The sea shore
ever alluring and new
yet never changing
sprawls before me.
A balm to tired minds!
The chilly breeze blowing,
the jets of water
dispersing in smoky spray,
the waves coming to cleanse the feet
Oh! What tinkling sound they produce!

I hear a maiden’s anklets chime
as she inches ahead
with steps demure,
heart pounding,
to her bridal chamber
on her first nuptial night.
At times, they become thuds of footsteps
down the long corridors of time
tolling minutes and hours away.

The waves advancing and receding!
How they remind me
of the eternal flux of life!

A fantastic expression has been made on beach that gives immense pleasure. I cite.... The sea shore ever alluring and new yet never changing sprawls before me. A balm to tired minds! The chilly breeze blowing, the jets of water dispersing in smoky spray, Thanks for sharing this gem.10

A beautiful crafting of a pictureous sea beach Where a disturbed mind is in search of peace and a befitting comparison of the sounding waves with a maiden's anklets chime.... really enjoyed.

a beautiful poem and I enjoyed reading it, though the disturbed state of one person and the joyous side of another one are written in two different stanzas with the philosophical conclusion..
