Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 180

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

SHORE

I’m standing on the shore-

the trend line between firm land and mysterious deep.

Anything can happen-

either I’ll move towards the land

or I’ll be drowned forever into the unknown water.

I can hardly understand what the waves are telling me,

“Go back” or “Come close.”

I cannot but wait and watch.

The lure of the sea! It's drawn many a human down to the depths.

I can feel the suspense here in your words. Well done!

If I were to sum your poem in two words, it is uncertainty and the mystery of delving into the unknown without fear. Thanks for sharing.
