This one goes out to the greatest friend I have, and the best and the most honorable man in my life. My favorite person. Actually it’s a poem with 120 lines but I have posted just the first three stanzas. Mainly because it’s, maybe too personal, or maybe because I simply don’t want to share it right now with everyone. But I post the three stanzas because I believe he may read it. Because I will go through the absurdities of this life a thousand times over and over again, just to once again hear the sound of his approaching footsteps which I have learnt to make out even from a distance. The poem is called ‘The Sea, the Sand and The Turbine’
The Sea, The Sand And The Turbine
Sparkling spume cover the shore,
The heaving water rises to the sky;
The waves tumble with a thunder
On the sand, that makes me cry.
The pebbles are tossed around to swirl
By the wind that puffs and roars.
Reddens the horizon in the likeness
Of a face that couldn’t be but yours.
And then I look out into the drink-
Which is now so tryingly humdrum.
And I ask my God the same thing,
Where is my friend Lord, my sweet chum?
