If Only

If you could only see me from the inside out...running in a field of flowers amid the morning dew...Supping white wine inside my thoughts...if only

Bayview Park


I draw in a breath and hold it. The smell of the ocean permeates every cell. Overhead, the seagulls circle in unique patterns. Down the way one can see him sitting there on the sea wall....a man in ragged clothes. He stares out into many worlds.....worlds within himself.

As the drawbridge raises, the sound of a tugboat takes predominance over the lull of traffic behind me. The horn sounds harsh against the stillness.

Patches of whitecaps slide across the sugar white sand. Seashells cover the sandbar as far as the eye can see. A young couple walks out on the fishing pier. I wonder of their world.

The sand clings to my bare feet as I stroll toward the man that stares into his own ragged spots. I draw in another deep breath of sea air as the seagulls swoop down for their hunt. I, too, keep hunting.......

I can smell the sea in your words... There is such a desolation in the scene... There are certain sounds unique to lonely seashores - the screeching seagulls, the lashing of waves on the beach and - in the sea breeze, the humming of silence...

Its a like painting, Sandy. And i think thats when words achieve their purpose of being...

That's what I want Balan. A painting of words within the aroma of silence..

Yes, now the comment link appeared. As I said, the problem is with the pyzam backgrounds. Blogger backgrounds are few and rather dull, aren't they? :(

well, jealous people tend to make life difficult for their subjects of jealousy, I met people like this many times and they screwed as many parts of my life the could, but what can we do? let's leave the limited people to their petty limits anyway :) thanks for everything! :)
