The mornings have become cooler and misty…..the sun has shortened his daily visits by a few hours….he too prefers to have a cozy sleep under the star decked blankets of the night….in short the nature herself is in her wonderful winter gown. Another Christmas season has come…the very air is filled with the jingling of the Christmas bells…every child is in that dreamland….which consists of the Santa Claus with his snow white beard and bag full of gifts, the multicoloured twinkling stars, Christmas trees, cribs, cards….etc…But is there something missing…?? May b or may not be….however the eldest members of the family say so…They say the very spirit of Christmas is missing….
Today Christmas, like any other festival, has become an opportunity for shopping, eating, drinking and what not….a time to satisfy the material pleasures; is that the real sprit of Christmas??? It is impossible to think so…but who has the time to think?? So without thinking….by missing something or the other the so called modern and civilized man is leading his life…does this life has an origin or spirit or purpose….something yet to be discovered!!!!!

Visits to beaches have been very often…..but never had a chance to be a guest at that abode of beauty during the cool and shaded hours of night.So there is no wonder that the visit to Thalassery beach turned out to be a very very special one.The sea is that wonderful scene which will never bring to any sensitive mind even a single moment of boredom….it is ever new and ever fresh.At the beach, not a single ray of red from the sinking star was left to welcome us….but though we were late, our hostess-the sea- has had no complaint.She was so hospitable and received us with spreaded hands.The moments spent in the company of this charming hostess were very few… yet, they cling to the heart`s core so intensly.Each moment a new and fresh wave entertained us with its enigmatic tale….and then…. it broke up into a few handfuls of sugar and milk upon splashing onto those rocky chairs nearby.The tale brought by one of those waves is still alive in the memory…..the tale of those silver spangles which the wave carried with it all its way.Those silver spangles are the fallen stars…it was told,they once were the twinkling stars,the inmates of the vast blue above…but left that status on falling in love with this ever active ,lovely blue below…however those spangles were a real feast to our eyes and hearts…..the taste of which will remain evergreen on the pages of the mind`s account book forever and ever….!

Dreams and Dreams and Dreams
Some recollections
Some ambitions
Some imaginations
But all are street lights.

Dreams and Dreams and Dreams
Some hint at past
Some hint at future
Some hint at timelessness
But all are traffic signals.

Dreams and Dreams and Dreams
Some render smiles
Some render tears
Some momentary escape
But all lead to the final destination.
