Five Dreams and a Memory
The Sun takes a dip into the ocean
Spreading a vermillion hue in the horizon
Look diagonally and you can see a little girl
Trying her best to save her half broken sand castle from the waves
A man passes by with a camera in his hand, searching for the perfect angle
And there he stops, as if someone whispered something in his ears
He stares at the horizon, enthralled by the beauty, he forgets to get his perfect shot.
Look right and you can see two children, a boy and a girl
Running and giggling,
With a handful of sea shells
On the far left there sits a woman, alone.
With wind in her hairs
Overlooking the waves
As if she is in love with the roars of the ocean
Now take a stroll,
There a few steps away,
You find an old couple
May be in their Seventies,
Walking side by side
Talking and laughing their hearts out,
So much in joy, so much in love.
The waves touch your feet, and the sand recedes.
You stare back at the vermillion sky,
This time with a smile.
Some moments, they say, can make you wise.
