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

Conundrum!

Contemplating on choices at crossroads

Chaotic cacophony prevails in the indecisive mind

Creates contours of illusionary dimensions

Clarity camouflaged by conflict of thoughts

Complex patterns emerge, trying to channelize the clutter

Connecting the dots, seems to be a challenge

Conundrum sums up life’s path!

This style of poetry is called Pleiades.  It has only one word in the title followed by a seven line stanza. The first word of each line begins with the same letter as the title.

    You beautifully summed up the heart of the picture in those lines Radhika, so well written…
    The picture itself is very interesting too, like how such intricate chaos leads to a lovely pattern. In the world of art there is always a battle between busy art vs minimalistic art…
