Tears Of A Wave - Poem by Aufie Zophy

In a big ocean, not far from the shore
A small wave couldn’t take it anymore
It broke out in panicky tears
Another wave enquired about the worst of its fears

'All waves are breaking on the coast line
We are so near, it is no longer fine.
What is about to happen is awful, can’t you see?
Soon, nothing will be left of us, nothing of me.'

The answer of the companion was this:
'My dear friend, you seem not to know what reality is.
We are just a part of the ocean and forever we will be
Realising this you should not worry for you or for me.'

(I had shared this story, I had read in a book, with one of my fellow poets on poemhunter and she encouraged me to put in verses. Many thanks for this and also to other poets who have given me many other encouragements.)

    Grains swept off the ground on a windy afternoon, Swirling in our repective freedom, And yet, Together we swirl. (Report) Reply

    We are like waves...
    The wind can throw us
    Where ever they like
    Till we vanish like others
    Rising new waves...!

    Nice way of feeling relieved from pains...!

    Very philosophical write - the concept of the shining sea comes to mind. 'The dew is on the lotus, rise great sun and lift my leaf and mix me with the wave. Om mani padme hum, the sunrise comes, the dewdropp slips into the shining sea' - quote Lao Tse. (Report) Reply

    I'm glad somebody encouraged you. It's really a terrific verse and idea you've put into words more understandable than some before you have done. (Report) Reply

    Woa. I adored the story behind this and the way it applies to humans as well. We are all apart of something bigger so we should never fear death. (Report) Reply
