Contemplative solitude atop
the many mountains I scale,
unravel humbling experiences.
Overcoming the challenges of the
jagged precipices of life
liberates my imprisoned mind.
The trepidations and apprehensions
of the arduous ascent, give way to
a symbiotic balance between the body and mind.
I acknowledge my growth from beneath to beyond,
and appreciate the journey of “becoming”!

I sit by the lake for hours watching
nature’s exquisite craftsmanship
that rise from the murky waters
yet, are a flawless blossom.
The myriad petals unfurl
in synchronized poise,
with nimble balletic grace.
The floating beauties cast a spell,
intoxicating me in sensory rapture,
infusing a serene aura around.
It triggers a contemplative thought
as an enlightening moment dawns.
Despite the flawed exteriors
real beauty emanates from within.
I do away with the urge to focus on the external,
indulge in cleansing my soul,
feeding it with bountiful fill of zen .
