as Sun kissed the sands and called it a day….


sun stood still, innocently still
earth unfolded the drama

clouds crowded thither – a mob of fanatic followers there
stifling those jubilant red yellow orange afar
for a crepuscular splendor magical

wind’s scripts tiptoed sinuously …
weaving a layered ornamentation
for coppered robe earth wore this side


sun stood still, innocently still
earth spinned a rhythmic soft sufi there
on its relentless serene voyage


occasional winds whizzed in
spattering coppery sands amorously ….

I sat there on the ornated mound
drenched in bronzen shimmer, inhaling desert sands
as she gently pulled the blanket over

The tryst before twilight

as winds whispered tenderly
timidly the waters rushed 
puffed with mirth and froth
as child to mom
pumped agog with pocketed joy


rumbling waters tumbled gigglingly
avidly splashing briny spumes
emblazoning the sanded shores
with fringes of designs many
charmed by winds whims

hued by setting glaze


Seas never failed to allure me – the more so at sunset! It is the immensity, the enormity that initially triggers a sense of pride..a sense of elation – know not why so – in deserts I get a similar feeling mixed with a sense of insignificance followed by nothingness!

Air smells heavy with salt, but I feel light! The waters seem playful all the time ….  receding waters cuddled the salted sands and my heart bubbled in joy  ……. the settling roar, splashing foams, the borderless concreteless open space, hued horizon that never seem too far away …..they all fill my senses with the most sensible ‘abracadabra’ which hushes away all burdening thoughts ….. filling me with nothingness in abundance!  

I wonder why am I so obsessed with sunsets at seas and photographing them! May be because they satisfy all my seven senses most aptly! May be because they numb my common sense more perfectly! May be because they provide the untrappable escape route!
