I wrote your name

As I sat alone on the seashore
watching the sun fade away,
I carved your name on the floor
but the waves did not let that stay.

As I stood on a rock so dry
wishing the dark clouds gave way,
I wrote your name in the sky
but the wind blew it away.

As I walked across the park in glee
enjoying the life that moved in flash,
I engraved your name on the tree
but the blaze turned it to ash.

As I slept on my bed lone and sole
dreaming about everything you and me,
I etched your name in my heart and soul
and now there is nothing but we.


This is my entry for Carry On Tuesday #30 prompt – I wrote your name in the sky but the wind blew it away.

    I really like the..now there is nothing but we..part.
    The heart and the soul is the only permanent part is there not? The one place where our loved ones stay always never to be erased..till the time we are no more..but then again they say the soul lives on..so our love for the ones close to us lives on..
    Beautifully written..

    yup..heart is where it is all permanent 🙂 …thanks a lot, comfortablynam.

    Stunning… 😀 I guess you are meant to do something in literature… 😀
    btw whose name is it? 😛

    literature? oh come on :D…don’t be so nice :D…you know it’s not true :-)..this is nothing 🙂

    thank you!!!

    and the name – well there are many.. :D…no scarcity to find a name to write 😛 …

      This is just like you commenting on my album right… 😛 Seriously that poem was good. You have got some talent other than wotever u r doing and if literature is what u r doing then you will go places… 😛

      well not really…i said i liked your photos and that you had a talent…never compared it to the highest achievement in photography field (i dunno what it is to photography as literature is to writing)…

      anyway 😀 thank you so much..


      • #10 by viswajithkn on December 8, 2009 - 9:35 pm

        see…i just said you will go places but I never mentioned that it will be the pinnacle…:D just goofing around…now i have kept this comment without submitting it for almost an hr!

        ok …maybe i misunderstood :D… thanks for the nicest words :D…


      • #11 by viswajithkn on December 8, 2009 - 10:37 pm

        you don’t like being thanked much, do you? 😛


      • #12 by viswajithkn on December 8, 2009 - 10:47 pm

        I dont mind being thanked. But I have lost the number of times you have said thank you within some three four days starting with the white snow thing. Sun sun ke kaan pak gaye…read it in some hindi actor ishtyle…:D
