He stared

at the vast beautiful sea that lay across

befitting his huge bungalow.

He stared

at the path below with a beggar in tattered clothes

and a child snug happily in his arms.

He stared

at the smile on the child’s face

unaware of what lay ahead and unmindful of the storms

that may befall.

He stared

at the pot on the fire inviting to feed a hungry belly,

and an aroma that could belittle a star kitchen.

He stared

at the woman who was pouring her love into the plate

to feed her family.

He stared

at the man’s empty bowl and a heart filled with content.

He stared

at the rooms filled with precious decor

but holding a big void

He stared

at all the worldly treasures the beggar embraced

while he was left with the poverty of near and dear ones

begging all alone.

 He stared

at the beggar within and out

He stared

at the contrast that was LIFE

He stared

at the vast beautiful sea from his huge bungalow

He stared…

  1. This is so beautiful, Medha. You won’t believe almost same scenario I’ve observed yesterday evening when I was coming from work.

    The only difference was that beggar woman was asking his child to beg to me and he was like no. No. 😂😂

    I was laughing at that too, because he didn’t like to beg but her mother was teaching him. 😁

    Anyway, it’s a beautiful creation by you. 😘
