I keep an entire ocean

hidden in my eyes.



In the innermost core

there’s broken paradise.



I am less flesh and blood

and more brine sighs.

  1. Fortunately there are many of us that feel this way. Maybe it is time for another less destructive species to take over…it will probably be the rats! Beautiful poem Sumana.

  2. Since ancient times, humans have assigned healing and meditative properties to water. Very beautifully penned, Sumana. Amazing …I love it the way it is! 🙂

Thank You :)
