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


In response to Helene’s What do you see? weekly challenge


Fighting the tremors of thoughts

dizzied by the voices that scream

battling the figments of doubt

that haunt me in an obscure embrace


In the din of the deafening silence

I strain to hear a feeble voice

emanating from deep within

through the veils of gossamer


I collect my deviant thoughts

envelope them with a blanket of

hope, trust and faith to

emerge out of the labyrinth

with stronger resilience!

    This one is one of my favorites from you. You have created that hope we seem to lose often in a maze-like condition.

    Absolutely true and perfect poetic lines so well composed, Radhika on being trapped and trust and faith can surely emerge with perseverance too.

    Lovely poem Radhika. It can be frightening at times, loosing ourselves in the maze. You write of hope, trust and faith, which to me is what we need to make it on our journey. Bravo to a splendid composition for this prompt.
