At Peace!

The warm breeze carries moist salinity of the endless sea,

the hues of the receding sun begins its final dance across the horizon,

choreographing each movement with graceful swirls.

As dusk ambles across the skyline with a sublime gait

leaving a trail of scarlet dreams,

I sit by the shore watching this celestial spectacle unfold.

Just as the broody clouds pale against its luminous crimson glow

my stress from the chaotic day releases,

bringing an untold sense of calm to my weary mind.

Seasonal transition follows nature’s rhythm.

Once full of supple verdurousness  

today, I mirror a dull ochre expression.

Diluted veins sap my strength,

 I am blown away by the gust of wind,

my withered soul drifts away from home.

I twirl to the rhythmic breeze, explore faraway places,

at times crushed beneath the hurried feet.

I hold no grudges.

Graceful surrender and acceptance, fills me with peace.

Nature’s lullabies cajole me to deep slumber

 into mother earth’s welcoming bosom..

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

In Gratitude!

Ic: Jasmin Chew @ unsplash

I surrender my pain to the soul of the universe

to look beyond the illusion of emptiness, that besieges my heart.

My teary emotions dry under the illumination

of the starry moon dust.

My closed eyes watch a display of snippets of life

unfold a scenic panorama.

I anchor on to light of trust

as the dark shadows of hurt begin to recede.

I harvest a refulgent slice of peace

from the abundance of the cosmic energy,

in gratitude .

V. J’s weekly challenge : snippets

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

 

Mankind!

mankind

Different strokes and colours

different cuisines and cultures

different religions and habits

different dresses and languages.

 

Yet people across the world

under the infinite sky,

feel the same emotions,

bask in the same sunshine,

share the same dreams,

experience the same love,

revel in the same moonlight,

sense the same fears,

shed the same tears,

enjoy the same laughter,

endure the same pain,

suffer the same hunger pangs,

join the same hands in prayer.

Mankind, bound by the heart

yet divided by boundaries!

 

WPC – Serene

The ripples created by the hectic pace,

on the run routine, saps the energy

of the tired and overworked mind,

its time for a recharge!

Heading amidst the lap of nature

resting the fatigued body and mind

the boundless sky, meandering clouds,

tranquil waters, azure horizon,

all work in tandem to

infuse serene concoctions into the soul

the worries quietly seep out and

unbounded peace flows within!
