a letter from the sea, to the sea

a letter from the sea, to the sea

the elements it carries:

a bunch of skeleton seashells,

the sudden surge of blue waves

waves carrying my scarlet wishes, undone

yearning to reach the sunkissed island

the mellifluous harmonies on the way

waves that wipe my feet and denies to leave like a passionate lover

waves that meet a child’s paper boats

and beholds sacred rituals of my mother

waves that narrate tales, half written and unfinished

waves, a witness to the corpses in disaster

a letter from the sea, to the sea

a silent whisper

a quiet watch

an observer

of all the transitions from life to death


By Shreya Sharma

I read poems. Sometimes I write poems. And when I am doing nothing, I am sipping coffee.
