Me standing on the beach....




















Looking at the horizon
Where sky and earth meet

Raising the waves to and fro
The vast sea stands like a witness
It seems unequal from outside
Yet in complete equilibrium at core

The setting sun in one plane …
The raising moon in another
It appears two worlds from outside
But it’s all on the single planet

The thinking mind at times
The feeling heart sometimes
It makes discrete approaches from outside
Though its same person all the time

 What you see outside is
Seldom a reflection of inside
Yet….both meet at some point
Where there are no barrages
And life becomes one single line!

Sometimes in life too we are at a pint where everything converges and we have to choose/differentiate.

Yes, when we appear somewhere- just notice people reaction, it's never the same ...you bring at least 2 of u: visible and invisible ~ love this idea :)

I love the sea as a witness.

i love the images you use here to make your point... when things come so close that they are one line..on one line... with nothing that separates... a great metaphor..

So often the inside and the outside does not match. Ideal is for it to match, but it isn't always the case. Your poem resonates with me...as so often outside does not show what is inside.

Neat poem. I really enjoyed the philosophical things this--thinking about where inside and outside meet--and where is reality anyway? Thanks for posting this.

Lovely write. It is wonderful to be aware of being on the cusp of that magic place where reality touches the infinite and the nowhere-notime...
