Memories and Tears


At Pondicherry Beach


I sat there for almost an hour and it would be a mistake if I say that I've stumbled upon that place.

For all the sixty minutes of the time traveled, no tear rolled down my cheek without a memory.

Few were sweet and few bitter.

But the one in those memories was glorious.

I sat there for almost an hour and it would be a mistake if I say that I've stumbled upon that place.
