This has been in my Evernote for a few days now…. drafted during our drive from beach. It was not a weekend trip but an in between one to Al Sawadi beach.
Beach looked deserted being a week day – may be its the Ramadan fasting and warm weather that kept everyone home.
I stood watching shells that were strewn generously on sands – shells and conchs of sizes many, shapes many and shades many that spoke of lives lived and still living in waters -sea seemed to be brimming with life!
You never feel alone amidst nature! Loneliness may be an excuse… solitude is different -you revel and revive in it!
At Sawadi sands, I get tempted to pocket a few shells every time!
waves churned with unbounded joy
liken a bundle of school kids let loose
bathed and garbed in new found happiness
frivolous, joyous, immensely happy
they raced, they chased, mirthfully bashing one another
falling frailly – giggling rapturously
never wanting to end the fun
they turned aback
to relive it all – all over again!
Sea was relatively calmer last time. May be seas too are prone to mood swings. They need winds to bubble up. They have their high and low tides too – gravity, sun and moon playing their roles perfectly they say!
What am I but elements with 60% water inside and isn’t it quite natural that I too am prone to high and low tides surging and falling within?
