Sitting on the beach, watching the waves from the closest range, my forearms rested firmly on my knees, fingers of my hands tucked deep into each other, I fixed my gaze to a wave, that rose boldly at a distance,  stowed recklessly with scattered wisps of water popping out, rushed playfully towards me with its innocuous crushing force. I suppressed my penchant for cleanliness and on the road resolution to remain dry as I prepared myself to hug it with a monk's concentration and child's joy. The wave climbed towards me as I saw it at striking distance, riveted my eyes on its expressive ways, didn't care to blink my eyes, just heaved a sigh. It touched my feet first, heralding the upwelling of joy, pounced upon me not willing to wait anymore, brushed my knees, flushed my arms as it drew towards my face. It lay for the thousandth part of a second in front of my face, my heart pounded the chest bone, blood flow swiveled, for the wave was ready to unleash all its  magic as I peered at it with open eyes, and it splashed against my face losing its  infallible poise with alluring demure. 

'Wow', the moment stuck in my memory, it conjured an endless spiral of thoughts as I submerged into the dulcet tones of its hypnotic rhythms. I did not care to swim as it drowned me mellifluously with its heavenly spell of joy. I savored its beauty with open eyes, touched its face laced with shimmering hopes. Luminescing orbs of my eyes soaked the flawless elegance that plunged on its walls, shone brightly in the luscious abode of angelic radiance, immersed effortlessly in the swirling tempest of its ethereal beauty. 

The moment lasted a few seconds, so lucid it was, unambiguous and unclouded, fortified with celestial piety. A surreal web of thoughts inundated me as soon as I came out of it. 'That was beautiful' I blinked, 'I was beautiful while I was there, most beautiful I ever was' I blinked again. 'Was that real me? Or just a figment of my existence?' gobbled a chunk of air into my lungs to abate the uneasiness. 'I am not like this when I read, when I write, even when I bask in boisterous luxuries this world offers to me' I lifted myself from the ground as I gazed around. I tried to find out what made it beautiful, my eyes wandered, my mind puzzled! Sand, silt, clay, boulders, the ocean, salt, water, what? 'What made it beautiful? What made me beautiful?' 

I refocused my eyes on the waves. 'I will never know! Probably I should not know? May be the beauty lies in not knowing it? May be I should just feel it?' I took a deep breath taking my attention from the mirthless thought. 

I sat again, fixed my gaze at another wave that rose few yards into the sea and there you go, I was ready to feel the magic yet again.....

    Wandering thoughts, random observations, looking at a point right beside you without really focusing on it, or looking far into the distance and keenly observing every speck - when left alone and undisturbed with just our thoughts, we discover profundity without intending to :)

    Very nice!

  7. It was as vivid as it crashed against me, I liked the philosophical touch it had, everything doesn't need an explanation. Many things are better left unanswered, unexplained, just to be enjoyed.
