Foot on an open beach.



I stood there on the shore,
On my bare foot, on hot sand,
Pebbles sticking up my feet,
I could see ocean all around,
People surfing and swimming,
Being “one” with the ocean,
Waves big and strong,
All I wanted was the water to reach me,
To feel the warmth of the ocean,
To get the sense of being touched,
It did happen, the water flew past my feet,
Little did I know I had a price to pay,
Just the touch, and the ground below me is gone,
What’s left is just a feeling,
Was it this, that I was waiting for?
Ocean of happiness in the front of the eyes,
And just a momentary caress, thats all?,
Loss of ground in pursuit of happiness?,
Is this what I wanted?,
Being the foot in an open beach?


Guys I really tried to write today, somehow I am not in the frame of mind, again and again this old poetry of mine is haunting me, so just thought I would like to share this again, just that my mind is not capable of thinking now.

  2. The feeling of shifting sand beneath the feet is incredible and as a metaphor for life is perfect.

    sometimes we feel the loss of ground, and what better then the actual feel of it on the beach

  3. “Was it this, that I was waiting for?

    And just a momentary caress, thats all?,
    Loss of ground in pursuit of happiness?”

    This is such a great summation

  6. That brought back childhood memories of riding the waves of Long Island New York beaches. You really captured the feeling of being pulled in by the waves, as the sand moves underneath you.

    Thanks Mad Kane
