In Gratitude!

Ic: Jasmin Chew @ unsplash

I surrender my pain to the soul of the universe

to look beyond the illusion of emptiness, that besieges my heart.

My teary emotions dry under the illumination

of the starry moon dust.

My closed eyes watch a display of snippets of life

unfold a scenic panorama.

I anchor on to light of trust

as the dark shadows of hurt begin to recede.

I harvest a refulgent slice of peace

from the abundance of the cosmic energy,

in gratitude .

Walk in the Woods!

The walk along the muddy trail of the forest was a revelation. The sky kissing trees breathed an organic scent. The verdure paradise was slowly awakening from its deep mossy slumber into a moist misty morning.  The raw breeze and foggy veil had a mystic allure to it. Their entwined roots and strong embracing boughs were a testimony of their primeval connect.

 The twigs crunched under my feet as I ambled along the wet brown path.  The woody heaven came alive to the sounds of the forest. The tweet of the birds, scuttling rabbits, rustling foliage, scurrying squirrels, hissing reptiles, trill of the insects, shrieks of arboreal creatures and the cry of the wild, all playing at their own rhythm yet orchestrating a perfect harmony.

The ambiance of the forest stopped the clock. I lost myself into her welcoming arms. Under the canopy of a green palette, I inhaled the freshness of natural wonder, soaked in the beauty of flora and fauna, admired the medley of diversity, and listened to the pure and earthen tales of the wilderness. I enjoyed my solitude in the company of nature.

A haiku poem for Eugenia’s weekly prompt Rainbow

An ode to the Ordinary!

Doodle by my daughter

The cover of my book depicts an essence of commonality

 it pens reflection of  my gratitude, to the many silent doers

 highlighting their sensitivity towards a humane life.

Ordinary lives of people, making an extraordinary difference!

Unlocking their repertoire of goodness

they leave a trail of kindness,

 soothe another’s pain, feed a hungry mouth

they gift a moment of lift, to the lesser fortunate.

We don’t need heroes in capes, we find many among us

who choose to make a difference, in their own small way.

Their selfless service, serves a sliver of humanity

in today’s disintegrating values of the world.

An ode to the ordinary, making an extraordinary difference!!

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #176: ” If you are a book, what will the cover look like? “

Eugenia’s weekly prompt : Extraordinary

Cheated in Love…

Endearing moments, amorous feelings

romantic hearts seal, a promise of “ and forever…”

Rendezvous under the silky darkness

 whisper echoes of sweet nothings

stoking the flame of frenzy,

 whorls of scarlet emotions flow.

Heady tangled intoxication

tastes the elixir of passion.

The morning zephyr

blows the embers of rhapsody

 only the charred remains linger.

Her naĂŻve heart,

misread his illegible scribbles, for love.

Broken dreams scatter into oblivion

teary eyes blur the memory of intimacy

painful scars etched, heartbroken,

her vulnerability is there for all to see.

She…

She,

voices her opinion loud, against her dwarfed rights

  turns deaf to societal charades, with a whispered sigh

 gives wings to her crumpled dreams, to reach the pinnacle

fights a daily battle against unseen and unsaid rules

frees her imprisoned longings, with her head held high

 adorns a resilient avatar, with her tenacious spirit

proudly wears her tiara, despite the many scars.

Her life is a collage of challenges, a different set each time.

She expertly sews the many patches of her life

into a beautiful quilt, 

signed with the motifs of her victories!

All she only wants is,

freedom to celebrate herself, to be who she is!!

Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women here!
