It is sure plausible to spread the vision
Beyond visibility, with mind's comprehension-
To see yonder where the sun rises-
Over the serene  blue ocean that surprises,
Where the green boughs of heavy trunks
Canopies the vast ocean below sunk.

It demands rich imagination-
'Cause it's just a piece of fiction,
But could be applied to life's entity-
Where the Sun, Ocean and Horizon forms a Trinity.

The yellow ball of fire is the brightest star,
'Tis attainable though it seems so far,
Burning, glazing and sudorific-
It requires endeavours terrific.

To grab the fireball with hands of uranium,
And a career built in the industrious gymnasium.

The blue ocean is deeper than the depths of the mind,
Yet white pearls in conch'd shells at the bottom do you find .
So dive below and extract the true jewels of His (God's) bounty,
For he who emerges to the brim is graced with aplenty.

Perchance, 'tis a task so difficult, 
To merge the Sun and the Sea so occult-
Fix thy courage to the sticking place,
And victory will be thy entourage!

Be firm, fixed and ferocious,
Merge your mind and determination so zealous; 
Thy willpower is the Sun and feelings the Ocean
Attainable, achievable and palpable
There lies the Horizon!
