Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

My Sanctuary!

HUE|DANCE|BREAK|INNER|LOST

I have attempted an Haibun for the same.

I break away from the frenzy of the turbid city life and head towards nature, to be lost in its ever welcoming arms. As I cross the city limits the landscape beckons me with an alluring gentleness. The early morning rays make a dazzling appearance behind the tangerine hues of the horizon. The green meadows revel in a golden glow of the radiant light.

I walk bare feet on the wet blades of grass, my hands feel the pregnant buds ready to bloom. I inhale the sweet fragrance of the flowers, and admire the meandering butterflies, as every sense organ of my body is recharged. The mind dances with delight at the tranquil surroundings which envelope me. I am awake to every passing moment as the energy from the intangible and sublime elements of nature converge into my inner most core. My heart sways to the soulful melody of nature’s song without words. These moments of solitude in nature is my sanctuary away from the humdrum of life.

Nature’s bonanza

kaleidoscopic marvel

rejuvenation!

Haibun is a Japanese genre of  combining prose  with a haiku (5\7\5 syllables). The key to the art of haibun is the graceful pairing of poem and prose, where the poem links to the prose yet shifts away from it.

    Splendid poetic words Radhika and loved the apt picture of simply roaming free in the green grass with bare feet and silence. Too good.
