Forgotten Sand Castles

I return back to my childhood, every time I walk on the beach!
🙂
This beautiful poem gently evokes child within us!

WORDS IN THE LIGHT

CIMG5862

Starfishes
or silver shells,
sea glass pebbles,
blue-green diamonds…

a lost dolphin’s dream,
an angel walking on water,
or maybe the key that opens
all forgotten sand castles,

will we ever know
what a child
running on the beach
is looking for?

  1. Is it necessary that the child has to look for something while walking on the beach? Perhaps he is just savouring the beauty, the ambience and the water. To walk without purpose is also an endlessly pleasant activity. Most activities of children are pleasantly purposeless. The painful tag of purpose gets attached as they grow.
