To The Ocean - Poem by Indira Renganathan

It's thou dawning horizone
That dots the first sindhur
Lambent on earth's crinion
Bubbling with waving freshener

It's thee in morntide light
Bumpy-bumpy-busy wavering-
Over a pretext for a breakfast
As if it is earth-heaven's wedding

It's thee on slumbering nap
With bellyful salty food and aqua
Under sunny shade in a wavy trap
As if feasted in meridian awe

Plentiful thee, in plentiful harmony
For plentiful people along the border
Thou rollers in tender melody-
Seems a warm evening wedding- splendour

And thee! why so awful
In sunless hours in spumy fear?
Sembling a human life frightful?

    It’s a fabulous poem! You have very neatly expressed you keen observation mixed with powerful poetic imagination. I quote, “Plentiful thee, in plentiful harmony/For plentiful people along the border
    Thou rollers in tender melody-/Seems a warm evening wedding- splendor” I liked your poem as I like your poetic heart that I have smelt through your beautiful flowers! Thanks dear madam for sharing!
