~Of Poseidon~

"Arushi Ahuja"
Goa.
Adorned in a peaceful breeze,
Brimming with wishful sighs,
Reaching out ever so close,
And yet speeding farther away,
Carrying along the empty bottle,
With a wishful note inside,
Of someone's love and life,
Of a sailor's beautiful wife!
And the waves rise and fall,
With heartfelt song of the wind,
And the sea gull skims the water,
With hopes on her wings!

And the rise in anger and wrath,
Above the bewildered mortals,
Praying to escape the scorn,
Of Poseidon's furious assault!

  5. The image of the bottle threw me back to my childhood. I was very hopeful then that I'd find one and be privy to some secrets.

  7. There is really no assault like Poseidon's. It can be calm for a long time, but when his anger rises.....look out!
