Unmoored…

An old sepia toned picture kindled wistful memories

of the bygone days.

 I was the diva of rhythmic prowess,

tiptoeing my way on to the stage.

Full of nimble balletic grace,

pirouetting with poise, to the musical cadence.

I was crowned the

Dancing Queen

to a thunderous applause.

Today, my passion for dance has drifted into oblivion,

as I strive to prove myself in the rat race.

It sadly rests in peace

buried under the busyness of life,

in a dark corner of my soul!

 Thank you Lillian for hosting Poetics at dVerse. This week’s prompt is to use one line from Dancing Queen , a composition by ABBA. I’ve used : Dancing Queen.

Haiku – Choreographing Happiness!

Triple haiku for Eugi’s weekly prompt – Happiness

Sound of music plays

 happy feet waltz in rhythm

spirited connect

****

Soft tendrils unfurl

buoyant blossoms dance wildly

wafting happiness

****

Gentle swirling snow

a sparkling graceful ballet

white wintry delights

Finally, At Peace!

The life’s song played dissonant chords

fragments of musical dreams scattered,

steps faltered, leaving hazy footprints

under the umbrage of smoky youthful frolic.

At the fag end of a frosty journey,

I reminisce on the missed opportunities,

rueful morose fills me,

 tears of regret mist my eyes.

Finally, the lost music redeems my errant heart,

the strings of melody balms my broken soul,

ripples of repentance and acceptance mingle,

 Today, I make peace with my past.

Eugi’s weekly prompt : Mingle

Off Pitch!

Serenades of the universe resonated in harmony

the flora and fauna played in perfect cadence

sublime melody of peace wafted across

composing an ambiance of tranquility.

 

Entered man, stealing the conductor’s baton

altering the configuration of the arrangement

the reverberations goes askew

the din deafens the quietude of nature.

 

O divine mother, I ask for forgiveness,

I bow down to thee with reverence

help man tune his offbeat keys

to restore the rhythm of the cosmic orchestra.

 

In response to Sadje’s What do you see #37

 

Makeover!

The lock down cleanses the landscape

stay away humans balm the earth,

liberate it from their vile deeds,

as it breathes and rejuvenates

to a complete makeover.

Empyrean blues smile across the horizon

cumulus clouds indulge in careless whispers

the zephyr flirts with the virgin blooms

sounds of chirps serenade the world

sparkling brooks mirror a pristine image

boughs dance in gay abandon

the nadir glows a radiant gold, before

the night sky flaunts a starry spectacle

flora and fauna revel in its new found freedom

nature’s beatitude delights hearts!

खुशियों में दिल गीत के धुन गुनगुनाता है,
लेकिन ग़म में बोल, रूह को छू जाते है|

In happiness, man enjoys the melody of a song

but when he is sad, it is the lyrics that his soul feels.

Euphony!

Transcending boundaries

breaking barriers of language

notes, rhythm, beats and tunes

synthesize in harmonious amalgam

conceive a musical piece,

Be it,

Harmonious or soulful,

Classical or contemporary

Fusion or funky

Groovy or hypnotic

Lyrical or modern

Playful or poetic

Grand or somber

Rhythmic or sonorous

Melancholic or upbeat

Vocal or instrumental

Operatic or eclectic

the melody that oozes

from music is universal.

Sounds of Nature!

The trill of the cicadas

gurgle of the brook,

buzz of the insects,

 howl of the winds,

rustle of the leaves,

lashing of the rains,

 roar of the thunder,

 rumble of the waves,

 chirp of the birds,

 plop of the raindrop,

the music rendered by

nature’s orchestra

doesn’t need a conductor

 acoustics, fusion, melody blend seamlessly

as each artist plays in perfect symphony

to create a soul swaying rendition!
