Day Break at Karwar Beach

This picture was taken, Just after the Sunrise at Karwar Beach...
and found this wonderful poem to go along with it....
Though the poem is about a sunset, I guess it goes well with the picture.


- Galway Kinnell

On the tidal mud, just before sunset,

dozens of starfishes

were creeping. It was

as though the mud were a sky

and enormous, imperfect stars

moved across it as slowly

as the actual stars cross heaven.

All at once they stopped,

and, as if they had simply

increased their receptivity

to gravity, they sank down

into the mud, faded down

into it and lay still, and by the time

pink of sunset broke across them

they were as invisible

as the true stars at daybreak.

I love the photo and the poem. What a wonderful thought " if mud were stars" - interesting observations by both the photographer and the poet! :)
