Tales from Topographic Oceans


Gokarna 2009
From the River to the Sea.

'Maggie and Milly and Molly and May
went down to the beach (to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang 
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles, and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were:


And molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles: and


May came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world
and as large as alone.


For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
Its always ourselves we find in the sea.
(sometimes one also finds the skelingtons of strange creatures called by the locals as "GODFISH" (which was later discovered to be a whale!))

and sometimes one falls in love with a little scruffy black puppy called "Kalikalooti" :O)
