Storms at Sea

Storms at sea are a humbling experience...

Frail lives in a tin can
The might of nature
Barely withstand
And realisation
Dawns on sensitive few
Through the fog of fear
Our insignificance shines through...

We're all an Alien in somebody's world. Storms at sea indeed. Take care!

but we do stand back again....i guess tht is our significance :)

Alien said...

Proxima: Thats exactly right.. exactly the reason I chose this nick.. In fact we are often alien's in our own world as well....

Do drop in ...

Epiphany: Yes we do... the metaphor may seem to allude to storms in our lives, but it wasn't really intended too...

...and sometimes
life teaches you
more lessons
than you need to know

Alien said...

Ashwini:
No lesson is worthless
Even if it seems so
Today is myopic
Tomorrow will prove so..
