Poised at the brink of the precipice

gazing at the raging waves

crashing at the jagged rocks

the savage beauty alluring

to ride the potent waves.

Effervescent swell rising up

hammering the shoreline to embrace it anew

a violent beauty

a sight that was spectacular

tantalizing my senses obliterating

the warmth left behind.

My heart yearned

to relish , rejoice and lose myself

in that magnificent epitome of nature.

A foot is that needs for the plunge

while the hearth at home beckoned me

the savage  beauty seduced me

a war between the nature and nurture.

Amidst this whirlpool of sensations

stood I a feet closer to precipice.
