Watching The Waves...

Watching The Waves...

1 min 187 1 min 187

Have you ever watched the waves of a sea… silently, standing or sitting?

On the shore?

I go to seashore very often…

There…in the silence of that setting sun

With the graying shadows of the evening…

I watch the rise of a giant strong wave. With a gush of fathom,

With a hushing sound, passes a shiver from my spine…


But what after that?

A sudden downfall…with a shattering sound,

Smashing on the ground & parting into pieces.

As if the wave is crying hard… and dissolves in the sea again.

After a while...

Leaving the past behind...

As if the sea again wants to fly high...

As if it wants to rise beyond the sky…

It again gathers all its strength & takes a giant leap…

Again, to smash on the ground …

Never ever complaining, but forever going on & on,

Despite the smash, the fall, the pain, the cry…


It rises to fall…

Maybe that’s her fate…

I love to watch it in solitude… whenever I am depressed…

It shows me the hardcore reality of life…

It says me,

‘think not about the fate…

Rise to fall, but never quit trying,

Life is what we live now’
