"SUNSET BY THE SEA"
Somedays I wish to sit facing the sea maybe lie back on the soft sands gazing, funny shapes these clouds make in the sky all while the sun watches over like some paternal head of the family its children from above with some sense of responsibility, a towering figure. Meanwhile I doze off in peace for few minutes of course as the water from the sea tickles my feet sending shivers and chills of all sorts across my spine and viscera. Every tiny bit of hair on my arm standing up in defiance to this mischief of the water compensating for my tolerance, staring down like an army of Romans. You see this non connection between my mind and body, the disconnection between what I feel and what I do needs to be pacified like a toddler who keeps pulling on his mother pestering for candies. My thoughts pester my body, maybe the cool breeze of the approaching evening moving to and fro can sing me to sleep with a lullaby just for me that sounds just like one of those Beethoven melodies as if he's playing for me. Perhaps his soul has come back in the form of these winds whispering my name in my ears for the only audience he's got to perform for. As I descend to sleep so does the sun, the majestic figure drenched in saffron of the evening sky and not pinching sunstrokes but strokes of love fondling my hair bidding adieu receding into the dark night. The pristine moon, the stars and the ever constant breeze take over cajoling me while I sleep abandoning my thoughts. I've become one with time, lost in between what's real and not any moment I could step into my dream and wake up in some other world leaving my tempestuous life behind. It wouldn't have been just a dream or possibility but a stark reality if it hadn't been for the waters of the sea trickling down just over my knees now. I woke up with these beautiful celestial bodies wrapped overhead facing me telling it's time I wake up, the breeze still whispering but now asking me to move on and I must walk back on the cool sands beside the waters to home, to where I belong.
