Going Home to a land you’ve now forgotten. A new poem by one of our favorite authors: Adreyo Sen. Enjoy your Sunday, Yareah Magazine friends!
That the ocean
is at your doorstep
does not mean its mind
is not far away.
Perhaps the ocean’s thoughts
ruffle the shore
of a land you’ve now forgotten,
a land you once called home.
The ocean wants to carry you home.
And home only pretends
to have forgotten how it cares for you.
That’s why the ocean’s whispers
are so painful.
Let sleep be the boat ferrying you
to where cold chocolate is plentiful
and people speak with the tenderness
of plaintive tunes.
Let your eyes open where you felt
magic still live, on this earth.
your feet are already there.
