One searches
for what
one values,
and what one values
should be treasured
when found,

he was always
in search
of the sea,
beginning
from amidst
the arid interiors,
one bright day
he found myself
by the shore,

cupped his hands together
thought
he would carry her back,
she smiled
at his
innocent naivety,
as he tried again and again
to achieve this
hopelessly futile task,

one searches
for what
one values,
and what one values
must be treasured
when found,

so he stayed
and stayed
till he was one with water,
and if rumours
be believed
much to my thrill,
he is still often spotted
by even those
who disbelieve,

standing waist deep
amongst shimmering
moonlit shadows,
hands cupped
dipped just below
her wavy waters,
smilingly holding his beloved
his sea
in his hands.
