Comments on this Poem

Comment The small poem reminds me of Jayanta Mahapatra's Hunger, Sarojini Naidu's Coromandel Fishers and John Masefield's Sea Fever. Though out of context, but J.M.Synge's Riders to the Sea definitely suits for reference, but it is a one-act play. The silted sea and the retreat with the image of the moon in the net tell of the poverty and poor living of the fishermen. The poem is valuable from the eco-centric point of view also apart from the socio-economic point. Here he has used in his geophysics experience too in converting that into a verse-stanza.
Together with the fishermen I would like to put the herons, cranes and storks too searching for, following them for a silver lining. The lowering of dregs and hectic activity too are accosting the aquatic and marine life.
