#2, in the sea

A sequel to #1, in the rain

It was another ordinary day. The kind of day you wake up, look out of the window and smile at your foolishness for expecting the trees to have turned blue, the sky sea green and the sun a boring grey. Although everything was as it was the last time she left it to itself, she was off on a long journey to the coast of Maharashtra. "Nothing better than a really long drive to get your thoughts in order; to defragment that brain", she thought aloud.

En route, her thoughts wandered to him. To the time she first saw him. It was just a glance, but the glance told her so much more about him than a detailed resume. It was just a smile, but that smile told her so much more about him than a day's intimate conversation ever could. She smiled to herself at the thought of him. It never failed to amuse her as to how the human mind could selectively filter out things it wanted to. The drive was so enchanting that she lost track of time, hunger and all that she could be expected to keep track of, except the road of course. The long sinuous road, the lush green fields, the trees, and the sun playing hide-n-seek! Soon enough the coast line was in sight... She could already feel her the sea eclipsing her in a way that left butterflies swirling in her stomach.

She looked at the sea. Just how she wanted it to be; just how she imagined the sea to be. Calm and inviting... with a soft breeze blowing and the force so magnetic, pulling her right in. She had been warned of the dangers of the tides and the sea swallowing anyone who got in too deep. But she was unperturbed. Her face so calm, that it could transcend to being eerie. Laughing all the way she ran right into the sea. Headlong into the sea, like a lover who saw the other after an eternity of seperation. Only her and the sea and nothing between them; the sea caressing her naked skin, she making love to the water. With no qualms whatsoever; no strings attached!

Man and nature, in harmony one with each other.
Just like the creator had ordered it!
