Standing by her window sill
She feels the misty dusk that pass-
Over the fading veil of shadows
She sees the rolling waves of sea.
The sea was always laughing in ripples
And conveying lots of soothing words-
The words of cryptic emotions hidden-
Those arouse the mind from morbid state.
Enthusing were the words she heard
Enticing her to a blissful plight-
Out she stretched like a creeper plant
To reach and embrace seeking sea.
The joyful surf welcomed her-
To a roller coaster ride across
She bid farewell to open window
And rushed to mighty sea with glee.
Reaching the shore, she retro-gazed
Towards the lights that glowed in haze.
Sliding through the crest of waves
She muttered: ’Oh, glow worms only!’
