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..
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
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 .

Finally, freed from the mortal body,
the soul travels on an astral journey,
where endless peace envelopes it.
Word count :18
Hope my final journey will be as beautiful as this.
Shweta’s 6 word story prompt #51 : Peace
Profits plummet, stressful life, peace elusive.
Her wealth could not buy peace.
Meditation introduced her to inner peace.
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
Warmth and serenity oozes out,
the balmy ambience,
permeates the soul,
infusing it with tranquil peace!
Tuesday photo challenge : Peace
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!
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!
