sweet bitter love


The calmness of still water Spread with sparkling blue sheet; The reflection of the cumulonimbus; A promise of rain Ripples produced from sudden break of its surface Smiling waves growing wider; Gently fades away Far into the deep a sailor sailed To partake in the eternal bliss Nature and creature synchronized in beauty Then without warning a storm emerged Piece-a-piece the ship wrecked Hard and hard the sailor struggled Until the enormous fatigue overpower the power muscles Far, far away the voice of the sailor, faint and faint it grew As he sank deep and deeper in the water Oh! dear, oh dear, had he minded the depth of the sea He needed not be consumed.
