Not for me the rough seas

Picture of Kovalam. Credits to my daughter-in-law.

Not for me the rough seas of turbulent emotions;

The swirling murky waters of a troubled sea,

Not the riding up on the crest of the choppy wave

To drop into the trough.

For me, I strive for the serenity of a calm ocean,

(Kovalam on a sunlit December morning?)

The clear waters of awareness, of quietitude,

Flowing like a balm through me.

No exciting surfer’s paradise;

Rather, the staid peace of a gentle sea.


  1. Thanks, I love the sea and miss it so much. Thanks for giving me a bit of it this morning.


  2. Kollam , Kovalam - both the same?

  3. Not at all EL. Kollam is the old Quilon. Kovalam is the beach near Trivandrum.
    Btw, Onedia, you'll love Seaside Sharon then.

  4. 'No exciting surfer’s paradise; Rather, the staid peace of a gentle sea.'
    How true sometimes one needs to barter for tranquility and peace.It energizes the person to take on life's challenges.the picture was good.

  5. Apropos your comment to Srin on my blog the earlier header was a close up of a diya on my verandah on Diwali night .

  6. Lighthouses...one of my favorites!!
