Abloom!

From the rain drenched mud

rises a tiny bud,

its dormant beauty, encased within layers of green.

Radiant rays caress, prod it gently,

dewy drops, sprinkle showers of misty scents.

With a slow yawn, it awakens from its dreamy slumber

as the sounds of dawn play in chorus.

It unfurls its white silky petals

soaks in, the hues of a pastel palette,

sways to the balmy breeze, a lilac blush,

diffusing its ethereal fragrance.

Abloom, what a cheerful splendor!

Inspired by the lovely blooms in my pot!

WPC – Waiting

Waiting

for a new life to begin,

for the bud to blossom,

for the flame to burn,

for desires to be fulfilled,

for emerging the numero uno,

for the sun to rise,

for the phone to ring,

for a prayer to be answered,

for completion of a task,

for misunderstanding to clear,

for an approval,

for opportunity to knock!

Life is a constant wait for things,

sometimes long, sometimes short!

Enjoy the wait 🙂

Tanka Poetry # 2 – Blossom

img_20160904_085112619

As the tender buds

so delicately woven

unfurls its petals,

A floral blushing beauty,

Magical sight to behold!
