Today is the last post of the A to Z challenge. This journey with nature has mellowed me, opened up layers of my personality hidden deep, helped me release my emotional baggage and accept life and its offerings with grace. I am thankful that my connect with nature has been an enlightening experience for me.
In the lap of nature, the connect ignites a trigger
the mind delves deeper within the confines of self,
arriving at the inner unexplored sanctum.
The layers of ignorance unravel slowly,
multitude of thoughts, gently settle into sedation.
Bedazzled by the radiance of the mystic aura,
it revels under the new found feeling of bliss,
soaking in a beauteous facet emerging.
Tuning in to the faint susurrations of the cosmic energy,
floating in the stillness of that embryonic light,
the soul listens to the sounds of silence,
resonating with vibrations of infinite peace.

A big thank you to all my readers who stayed with me on this journey and showered their love on my work. Stay safe, connect with nature and always be happy !

Spanning horizons, arched across skies in a spectrum of hues lit up by sun beams,magical ephemeral chalked translucent blue skies, a covenant of love after floods.
The iridescent colors greet the prismatic beauty of dawn with a sublime embrace, the halcyon zephyr sprinkles glossy dew drops of verdure reflection.
The cosmic intelligence chiselled a raindrop murmuring melodic drips with a stem cradling a satin leaf, clasping gems to reveal something of itself betwixt an atmosphere of solace.
Whispering arcane secrets of the night, the pearly crystal beads pirouette, kissing the tender buds, gently cascade into the bosom of infinity.
Raging, crashing torrents by the technicolour sphere, bubbling, foaming, gushing down into the ravine, spurting upwards, spraying aqua flickered into air; turning to tears melting and trickling down soaked cheeks of drowning waterfalls.
In solitude, amidst the confluence of the boundless benevolence of the realms of eternity, the sacred sacrament of nature, the embryonic soul experiences a divine catharsis.
The second wave of the pandemic has gripped many parts of the world. With a steep spike in daily cases, an untold anxiety and fear cripples the mind. A home today has a wider purview to be more inclusive. With members of the family confined indoors, working from home, online classes, everything under the same roof, there is bound to be some amount of mayhem…. a clash of schedules and tempers. Bedrooms and living rooms converted into office/school, the table is strewn with many gadgets, paper and all kinds of accessories. The video call at odd times, demands the voice decibels to remain low. Imagine one’s own room has restricted entry today. A great deal of tenacity is required to cope up with the deluge of mental stress hitting us from all directions.
We all have, to some extent found our own mechanisms to handle the uncertainties surrounding us today. My sacred space is a small alcove in my home, where I have silent conversations with myself, indulge in some self-love, heal my pain and calm my mind. Believe me, this quiet time with myself in my cozy corner, is helping me a great deal to maintain my sanity, in an otherwise cacophonic home today.
Empower the mind to deal with turbulent emotions
created by the ripples of life.
Diffuse the torrent, channelize a path,
indulge in holistic living.
Spend solitary moments in mindful silence,
ruminate on the breath.
Let the receptive ears soak in the serenading
harmony of nature.
Allow the incessant tears flow from the closed eyes,
cleansing the impurities from the system.
With focussed reflection,
the confluence of the body and mind
transcends beyond the realm of universe.
Feel the abundance of divine energy manifest within,
cradling the self with a healing light.
As a benign balm of spiritual ecstasy fills it,
a sense of empyreal peace pervades.
mind is empowered to deal with the turbulent emotions!
All through my life, I sought solace in external validation
thriving on acknowledgement and appreciation
but, the excitement of happiness was fleeting,
before I succumbed to the feeling of nihility.
A gradual awareness elicits a perspective shift
I decide to dig within, peel out the layers to my core,
aghast, at musty cobwebbed sight I see.
The burden of emotional baggage I carry
shuts out light from seeping in.
I shed silent tears in that dark space,
as I ruminate on my purpose in life.
Finally I pick up the broom to clean
stubborn stains of toxic grudges I hold,
discard the overwhelming burden of hurt.
As I open the windows of my heart,
rays of sunshine permeate my soul
emanating a radiant glow within,
the happiness I feel now, is boundless!
I am still on this path to complete the deep cleansing of my soul, often failing and shutting the window. But, eventually, I do hope to let that sunshine into my core and envelop me in abundance of inner peace and happiness.
