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

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 .

    “illusion of emptiness” Perfect phrase to describe a temporary low mood. Gratitude removes this illusion. Brilliant! ❤ Uplifting poem, Radhika. Stay safe!

      I have actually felt this emptiness which I later realised it only illusionary, many a time. With acceptance, trust and gratitude one meets peace. Thanks for understanding the essence of the poem so well Cheryl ❤️❤️

    I needed to read something as beautiful as your positive poem Radhika. Giving your pain to the powers above and getting peace in return. Lovely. Thanks for joining in

      It is always a win win situation for us, if we do that Sadje. But many of us lock up the pain in our hearts and carry the burden of that emotional baggage.
      Thanks a lot for your kind appreciation. 💙❤️

    Very very beautiful and peaceful poem Radhika. I wish I read it for the first time in the evening, but I could always read is again 🙂 standing below the vast universe, looking up is always so uplifting to a soul which is feeling down. Your poem triggers similar feelings Radhika, very soothing and calming!
