In one with Nature
This was written on request. This wonderful picture was taken by a Nataraj Vemuri.
The waves rush forward, in hurry to meet the shore, to feel the warm skin of land. They come with a roar of jubilation and excitement of finally getting to meet the one they have traveled so far for. It is amidst this celebration that man walks along the shore, witness to the call of the sea. His feelings however are not so loud or speaking. He feels a certain calm, a tranquil feeling of being transported to another world where no ugliness scars the human feeling. Many have experienced walking on the beach, have even been aware of the pleasure when their feel sinks into the soft damp sand. How many have stopped to extend that sense? The waves continue, the sun shines, the breeze fans, the water licks on touch as it happens every day. Then there are those days, almost spiritual, where the human soul is impatient to leave the mundane and join the extraordinary. It is the same waves, sun, breeze, water or anything everyday that triggers the soul to escape from its chains to embrace the world that is pure and innocent. One becomes, even for the briefest of moments, in part with nature.
