The Lonely Tree - Havelock#1!

Havelock 2015

Morning sun rose amidst the serene water
And the water shone like a silver light 
The lonely tree gushed and smiled with the waves 
And they made promises for a lifetime 

I returned when the sun was about to set 
And now, the tree stood lonely 
Leaves didn't sway, water had receded
And morning promises were broken

Such is our life joys and moments 
The spring tide we danced and enjoyed 
Leaves us at the eve 
For good or bad I can't tell

But I can say, the dawn will bring the joy 
If only we can stand through the night!

With snow-white beaches, teal shallows, a coast crammed with beach huts and some of the best diving in South Asia, Havelock is one of the most beautiful islands of Andaman & Nicobar Islands(India).

  1. The way the tree stands through the tide is a wonderful metaphor for love. I think to rekindle with Dawn is the way to live.

  2. I have not heard of Havelock before. I think the poem and the picture go very well together. The poem I find to be very profound.

  8. Yes...if we make it through the night, dawn will bring joy. I think this a wonderful metaphor for the way life is. Dawn always eventually comes, even after the darkest night.

  11. How easy it is to humanize nature's world when a scene such as this appears and you have even included mankind's primeval fear of the dark! I loved it.

  15. Expression of nature's beauty at Havelocks through the poetry is in its complete perfection. I have never been to there but now I have made up my mind to visit the place.
