For the Sea,
A beach towel in hand ,
A beer in the sand ,
Tucked underneath an umbrella ,
Scanning the surrounding waves.
The horizon line puts me to sleep,
Wrapping in a blanket of bright blue and green,
The hunger rumbles deep within,
For what I have never figured,
Is it the longing to see beyond,
Or is it just to be.
Somewhere not long ago there existed a place Mind of No Mind ,in which on a cold winter day ,a Timeless Way was born. This timeless way had a way too ordinary. She would weep too often and would wander around the claustrophobic streets mocking the other little girls just as ordinary as her. Timeless way was extremely curious, so she would push and prod the other children until they would scream “GO AWAY!”
One such angry girl who screamed nothing at Timeless Way was unimportant. The girls’ mother had never given her a shower and also named her Lulu. Lulu had no peculiar tastes or no selective thoughts (but that was understood since she was still a young girl of eighteen.) Lulu also wore her clothes inside out because her father had told her to do so.
Her father ,who was also always known as “the father” not just to her but the entire village and never had anybody questioned it. The father also wore his clothes inside out because he owned and always swore to own only two pairs of clothes, one of which was his Sunday best. He refused to wear his black suit that was considered his Sunday best even at the funeral of his own mother. He complained that it wasn’t a Sunday or even at the remotest a rainy day ,his only two excuses to wear the Sunday suit .
Lulu on the other-hand now always carried a miniature harp after her grandmothers death but did not know how to play a single note. When the Great Flood washed over the Mind of No Mind to cleanse the souls of its people , the harp without the musical note kept everybody afloat but this was not known to Timeless Way. She stole the harp from Lulu and broke the harp. When the strings of the harp became unstrung and the frame of it unbound, Mind of No Mind never again had a mind of its own, When the great flood washed over No Mind again twenty years later ,Timeless way by then had already lost her ordinary way .
