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

Colors of Hope!

ic: Sadje

The once happy cumulus, lay defeated

eclipsed by the brooding cloak of grey,

casting a pale ebony reflection

on the sedated waters.

The tone of the dusky sky

forebode whispers of despondency.

The distant peaks, stood a mute witness

watching in anguish, in sheer helplessness.

The winds of change blow across,

obligate the smoky clouds to shrivel,

unravel a sliver of dazzle hidden behind

smiling with colors of hope.

        All’s well that ends well. Thanks a lot dear. I’m fine. I was on a break. I got married in January. Things turned a little bit hectic with planning a wedding while I was out of state. I have written about all of that in my comeback post. 🙂
        I’m still going to office daily so I’m being extremely careful. I hope you and yours are safe and well. Take care.
