Tinkles, felt like rippling
Those intrinsic movements
that flow into each other
with such
in dream-like flash...

Soothing sounds like
gentle waves lapping cool
around the ankles, leading
to a euphoria;

so sudden as a fresh spray
tangy water;
like a breathless gasp
in a cold shower.

4 October, '83


  1. The Quest starts anew!!You are back..:)))((hugs)))

    *sighs* *happy sighs*

    let me take this in first...these words were missed ...missed like you wouldnt believe...

    ''Those intrinsic movements
    that flow into each other
    with such
    in dream-like flash...''

    beautiful Usha....Will I run out of these 'beautifuls' one day?
    For,what else can I call it?

    the way you have described it...
    and then in the next words you take us from''soothing sounds'' to ''a breathless gasp in a cold shower''...

    Reading the last ones I did go brrr...:D

    the transition from soothing sounds and gentle waves to cold brrr like showers ...:)))

    and this ''so sudden as a fresh spray
    of tangy water;''...the imagery you evoke...

  2. Indyeah, Meg, that was an awesome comment too :) And I know those words have somehow transformed from mere letters, to feelings in the way you have shared exactly what it means to you:) Now that is as pleasant as being on the edge of the water, with the waves lapping my ankles, and listening to the pleasant sounds of nature:) Thank you, thank you ... everrrrrr so much!

    Meena, ummm... lovely to hear that delightful sound too :) Thank you!

    tangy water"

  16. Wish to stand in shower whole day long...heat is heating up by the hour...
    Guess My quest stretches far beyond the quest for heaven....
    Similarity in name and blog hopping brought me here :-)

  17. what will we get when we divide 'second'in to million parts...what is the feeling that rush to us when 'that unexpected curve' brings electricity inside the brain whenever we hear a great joke..what calmness we feel in those cool evenings when we do nothing but staring at the starts...
    "that" was what this post brings...
