Creative Spot - A poem by Mahendra (Speedy) Gonsalkorale

Oceanic balm


She was cocooned in a glass cage of emotion, 
Shattered by the shrill sounds of inner commotion
Yearned for soothing with alcohol consumption,
But wisely didn't succumb to strong compulsion
Turns to calming influence of waves of the ocean
She drifts to sleep content with what she'd chosen

  1. Hikkaduwa beach is the ideal place for the soothing 'Oceanic Balm'!!!

  3. The ocean, golden beaches (not bitches Raz!) and the sound of waves lashing the beach has always had a profound effect on me. When I want to relax, I sit in a chair (or is it on a chair?) and imagine I am at Hikkaduwa or Mt Lavinia on a comfortable chair under the shade of a thatched open enclosure with an ice cold coke or a kurumba in my hand and nothing but the sounds of the lashing waves and spreading froth wiping away the foot prints and occasionally interrupted by the plaintive cry of a young Mexican Maiden saying " yai yai yaaa, ya ya ya ya ya ya yaaaaa......."
