The Essence…

Each dawn brings with it a gift of a new day,

 spectral rays paint the earthen canvas with vernal colors.

Seasonal changes alter the composition

yet, weaves a cohesive mural of the landscape,

singing a song of nature’s soul.

Today I walk down the memory lane

when your birth brought in unbridled joy.

Iridescent hues of your facet brightened my life.

Despite the differences, our bond matured with a homogenous spirit,

singing a song of enduring love.

 Nature, whose visage keeps changing with time, showcases a different seasonal look. Yet from its soul, emanates the same essence of organic feel. Likewise, the relationship between a mother and daughter has streaks of emotional highlights. They may have their moments of ups and downs, yet they are bound together by a strong bond of love. Time may change their look and perspective, but in both cases, their soul sings the same song.

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 .

Sounds of Solitude!

V. J’s weekly challenge: ” What pulls on your soul?”

Away from the rut of the mundane

as the wandering thoughts settle,

clouds of chaos dissipate

when all the noise is silenced,

I sit alone by the sparkling blue ocean

watching the tidal waves ebb,

soaking me with candid conversations,

washing away my wistful woes.

The nascent rays of dawn

usher in a promise of hope.

I hear their unspoken words.

 The sublime sounds of solitude

wrap my soul in a tranquil embrace.

The Maverick Soul!

Mammoth gates of undressed stones

greet me, with a tale of the bygone eras.

The misty mountains from beyond beckon

into the realms of the unknown.

I dwell in the today, trying to fathom

the fascinating allure of the eclectic verses,

penned by the medieval past and the mystic future.

They invite me on a path of unravelling

as my maverick soul, is on a quest

to taste the alchemy of life.

Lost Emotional Quotient!

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #165

Look closely at the pictures above. Choose one or more, and think what are they doing together. Will they remain entwined or go their own way? Was their act or intent good or evil? Could they do whatever they planned to do together, or fell apart?

I have chosen the 3rd picture – The human hand and that of a robot for this challenge.

Man, the most intelligent species,

created artificial intelligence,

stepping into innovative technological frontiers,

taking automation to dizzying heights.

Breathing in greyscale monotony,

he put  life into chromed metal bodies.

With a system of inputs, circuits and codes

programmed to perfection,

Robots, obeying his every command

be it compute, abort, destroy…

performing each task with finesse.

With its heart full of wires, bereft of feelings,

the vitals of emotional connect seems missing.

In today’s environment,

Is man becoming his own creation?

Sanguine Spirit!

Vibrant confetti of leaves

ochre, brown and red

rustle an autumnal melody

twirl to the wispy breeze

revel under the harvest moon

spray a mist of spicy scents

delight the sensory emotions.

As Fall bids a final adieu

the fronds let go,

without any attachments

to their soul tree.

They sway in gay abandon

swirling and whirling in the finale,

before kissing the earthy bosom,

to be buried under winter’s white blanket.

The Soul!

Once upon a time, billions of eons ago

it all started with a speck.

The vast expanse beyond the cerulean skies

embraced within it

 infinite planets, galaxies and milky ways.

It intrigued and fascinated

Astronomers and Astrologers alike,

who postulated many theories.

The spiritual seeker,

ruminated on the realms of the cosmos

 to question our very existence

in this vast evolutionary journey,

to fathom its aura of cryptic mysticism.

Seeking divine guidance,

from the abundant energy of the universe

finally realising that  

the body and the paraphernalia

is just ephemeral,

the real truth is our inner core,

the soul.

V. J’s weekly challenge #113 : How it all started

Eugi’s weekly prompt : Cosmos

Strokes of Courage!

Children Multicolored Hand Paint
ic:pexels.com

Wavering fragile lines

alter to being resolute,

illegible scribbles and scrawls

transformed into stylized writings,

wings of fear clipped

to soar into the open skies,

meek submission develops

to an emphatic No,

the societal molds shed

to being You,

standing steadfast

against swaying temptations,

to own up responsibility

for a wrong doing,

leaving behind the comfort zone

to swim against the tide.

Filled with these strokes of courage

the canvas of life paints picture

evolving into an

aesthetic masterpiece

with a metamorphosed soul!
