 Infinite thoughts drift

across the reflective mind

embrace mindfulness

spiritual aura diffused

wealth of tranquil inner peace.

In response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge – Plenty & Meander, with the condition to use their synonyms only!

In response to Kat’s twiterring tale #59. Tell a story on the above picture prompt in 280 characters or less.

The piano had been a surprise gift from her grandchildren. They knew her passion for playing the piano, but  she had never been able to afford one. Her old yet dexterous fingers were magical on the piano. Her maiden performance at the age of 80, received a thunderous applause!

Obstacles halt your path

life punches hard, kicks you down

bruised and distraught

the spirit is deflated.

 

Entangled in a web of turmoil

the urge to quit is strong

but the mind refuses to surrender

trying to find the key to the chaos.

 

With the head held high

embracing faith and courage

the veil of troubles lay untangled

to view the colours of the rainbow.

 

Wounds turn into wisdom

courage replaces fear,

bitter feelings become better

honed and chiselled ,

you emerge stronger!
