அலைகள் / Waves

Chinna cuddalore beach
Pic by Jeevan (click for enlarge)
இயற்கை படைத்த உன்னதம்,
அணைக்கவும் அழிக்கவும் செய்யும் 
கையில் அடங்காத ஆயுதம். 

எழுந்தும் விழுந்தும் 
ஆற்றல் குறையாத அலைகள்
வாழ்வியலின்  மைல்கல் உதாரணம்.

கொஞ்சி விளையாடும் அலைகள் 
பாதம் தொட்டு வணங்கும் 
ஓர் பண்பாட்டு சின்னம்.

நாடிவரும் மக்களுக்கு 
இன்பம் அள்ளித்தரும் அலைகள்
இன்றியமையாது கடல்.

Nature’s best creation,
that embraces and destroys at same
an arm, excluded of hands.

At rise and fall
the unflagging waves
are life’s milestone example.

The waves implore and play
is a traditional symbol
of touch feet worship.

The sea’s essential, waves
pays pleasure for people
who come seeking.

Hi Jeevan, Waves are powerful for sure.... They do embrace and yet can destroy... This reminds me of nature... We embrace it ---yet we humans can also destroy it. Kinda sad, isn't it?????

Hope you have had a good week. We had a wonderful trip to Ohio with friends.

You know what, we can create electricity using waves. There are systems available to do it, today. From now on, waves are a source of power as well!
