When The Sea Calls - Poem by Sunil Rajagopal

'My glass is clouded;
In this driving rain, a whiff -
of the salty sea!

Listen to the rain -
Like many running ripples,
Like gulls on the wing!

Sailor I am not,
Nor fisher or diver deep;
Yet I hear her call!

It rolls and it tugs,
This rising swell within me;
Deep, soft - all at once!

Its shores are not mine,
Nor to its waves I belong;
Yet for them I yearn!

When the sea beckons
from afar, I close my eyes -
It roars within me! '

Topic(s) of this poem: nature, rain, sea
