Divine magic

What are you, but divine magic?
So suave, so dignified, so soothing, so elegant..

I close my eyes, open my arms wide,
I speak, I confess, you smile, you listen,
And,

In the gripping power of your silence,
You absorb my fears and my happiness
And caress me with a tender breeze
Filling me with a beautiful tranquility..



What are you, but divine magic?
So enthralling, so mesmerizing, so striking, so magnificent..

O' dear Sea, You are true bliss!

[dedicated to Marine drive, where I have spent some of the best moments of my life..:)]

Hey magnificent!!!!!!!!
Guess what? You can safely remove the last two lines and the picture. Atleast as far as i am concerned. Before even the picture loaded, "And caress me with a tender breeze, Filling me with a beautiful tranquility" - when i read that, i was so sure it had to do with seas and oceans.

My favourite place in the whole world is this part of Bombay. So I can identify with this poem and the sentiment that led you to write it. Thanks, Anu.

Amrita said...

>>> You absorb my fears and my happiness

perfect !!!

but i used to think the... mesmerizing sound of the waves and the breeze hitting on the face is what doing the magic to me....
(just like ur marine drive experience, i would never forget the fullmoon (whole)night spent alone in the poori beach.... thnx for kindling the memories once again :-)

Yaathrigan, glad this post brought memories! Oh btw, have you been to Marine drive? There is a specific reason why I mention the gripping silence - the sea is really silent there! (for there aren't waves dashing against rocks!)
