Walk of awakening

Photo clicked by © Prerna

Washed away
with the tides of life
Those footprints
d i s s o l v i n g
in the vast
ocean of expectations

Thoughts bubbling
like the foam
floating on waters of reason
towards the shore
of a realm unexplored

Tides raging
towards me again,
push me forward
and away from me,
my mind, it takes
to wander
in the vast ocean

My eyes are lost, but vision is found
digging those cottony clouds,
gleaming with love and light
But oh, the sands of time
have clasped my feet, so tight

I take a deep breath
The salty ocean breeze
tingles my senses
A tingling prolonged…
and I wonder if I held on,
for too long,
both inside and outside

Spaces

Divine spaces
in stirring souls
Nebulae between stars
Fields between particles
Blackouts between dreams
Crackling, sparks between flames
Ascent and descent between notes
Stillness between breaths
I am somewhere between
tripping and rising
Unfathomable sigh 
~Inside spaces~
Sigh unfathomable
Rising and tripping
Between somewhere am I
Breaths between stillness
Notes between descent and ascent
Flames between sparks, crackling
Dreams between blackouts
Particles between fields
Stars between nebulae
Souls stirring in
spaces divine

In the mist

Photo clicked by © Prerna

Gone are the
sharp contours
Mellowed down
are the shades
of black and brown
Grey and greyer
Darkness bright
and shady light.

In the mist of it all
I set forth on
a familiar track
unfamiliar now it seems
Never have I ever
ventured into the unknown
well-known now it seems

For new depths
am I exploring
of a spiritual realm
veiled by the
soft translucence
of earth’s moist breath

In the mist of it all
oblivion I cross
and as it d i s s o l v e d
into my cold
selfish palms
it did plant
a last vapoury kiss

Clear is it now
both within and without

Selenophilia

Oh give me a piece
of this lustrous moon
And it’s light
will I capture
to walk through
the dark passage
of time so roguish
and uncertain

Oh, the cool
and invigorating embrace
of this piece of moon,
to this bothered soul
will soothe its
qualms about
the world,
so opinionated
yet passive

And oh,
till the last drop
will I extract,
the essence
of its sobriety
So that
in the battle
to exhibit
the plethora of
“All that glitters”,
I unveil
my sublime simplicity.

Rain

Barren land,
Deserted soul,
Thirsty mind,
and the first drop of rain
as if dissolves
the emptiness; the loss;
the dryness of a soul
which knows no affection
as subtle as that of a raindrop.

And the greens that rejoice
at the announcement of nature
marking the descent
of the heavenly elixir
that oh, the Gods have sent
to quench the thirst
of the earthly wonders.

Behold, for when the raindrop falls
and kisses gently
the outstretched palms
of the leaves
longing for love;
they gleam with glee.

Such is the magic of rain
that even light splits
in sheer ecstasy
into seven colors
to bring delight
to the child
searching in the sky
for hues of inspiration.

Inspiration

The sun is the body
which sustains the life and existence.
Before this humongous sphere of raging fire,
you learn the value of love and sacrifice
and the power of forgiving and forgetting;
to let go of the negativity which pulls you back,
and rise again to your true spirit!

The moon is the soul
of the night sky;
spreading the message of sobriety and humility;
not blinding you with its brightness,
but adding luster to the plain and lifeless,
with its subtle and soothing glow.
Yes! clouds do come often to overshadow,
but nothing can dim the light that shines from within…

The stars reflect your attitude
to shine amidst the darkness and ambiguity.
It ain’t no matter how small or big you seem to be;
face the challenges and
just keep twinkling…

Swaying with the wind…

This picture reflects such a strong message. It calms the ever-chattering mind and gives so much peace and solace; pacifies the soul and fills it with sobriety. The trees swaying with the wind convey that sometimes we must let go of things which disturb our inner peace. At certain times, we must refrain from being a rebel and just go with the flow. We will definitely alleviate; time heals the pain of grief. We just need to synchronize with it and let ourselves loose; not bonding with the complexity.

Another message is that, people who are great and noble-minded do not show off their worth or rank. They are humble and can easily bend, for good and betterment. Just like those tall trees who bow without shame, while the short ones are as stiff as pole, desperately trying to make themselves more conspicuous. People who are for-bearing and forgiving do not have to grasp attention, their deeds and righteousness is evident.

Have a nice day 😊

The morning dew…

Neither of the wind nor of the green, I curl myself into a sparkling crystal sphere and dance merrily on the tip of a leaf.

I emerge from the immense agony of mother Earth which everybody can feel but only few understand.

I am the crystal glory of the forest and a tonic for the parched soil beneath.

I am like the pearls of a shattered necklace adding divinity to wherever I lie and intensifying the beauty of nature.

The sheer sight of me brings joy to the butterfly that gently sucks me up considering it a drop from heaven.

I shine like the twinkle of a mother’s eye full of endearment and affection.

I nourish the environment with my subtle moisture. After all, dryness is not so soothing for the eyes 😊.

With so much positivity and selflessness in me, I am still neglected and out of sight for people…

Nature heals and humbles…

There is something peculiar yet satisfying about nature. There are so many things to learn from it; most important being humility and harmony.

The towering mountains, humongous seas and oceans leaves you in awe. You are forced to bow in front of them. I feel awkward and dejected when people talk about “conquering” mountains. It’s actually the mountain that let’s you pass through it, with utter patience and humility. Hadn’t it been benevolent enough, people would never have climbed it and instead faced it’s wrath.

People living in the shelter of nature share a mutual understanding with it. They respect nature’s beauty and in return, nature cocoons them with tenderness.

Everything under nature lives in symbiosis. The first drop of rainfall cheers up the parched soil and quenches its thirst. The limpid glory which rests itself upon the soft glossy bed of a leaf, looks like pearls which embellish the surroundings. It seems that nature heals those who wish to live in it’s fold.

So, when you go out for adventurous trip, do remember to pack with you, humility, trust, low demands and empathy along with raincoats and boots.

You will find your path more easier to walk on and journey would be all the more pleasant.

 

~Have a good day!!

The concealed beauty🌌

I can very much compare myself to a nocturnal species like owls!! Having fondness for nights, I tend to appreciate it’s beauty and uniqueness as compared to other times of the day.

The clouds in the night sky look as if some grey water color has spilled on the canvas of sky. With stars doing the highlights, the canvas looks absolutely mesmerising !! An occasional streak of lightning also contributes to the beauty of the scenery.

Standing in the balcony, one must pay heed to the nightly choir of our knightly insects. Such amazing creatures they are!! – Celebrating their warrior spirit as well as heroism amidst solitude and solace, instead of making it a great show!

The petrichor and the herbaceous aroma of the foliage gives one’s nose, plenty of pleasure. It also calms the mind, leaving you in a fantasy land.

With all the beauty, night carries with it, it also gives me a pleasant atmosphere to work as well as concentrate.

Someone has rightly said, that beautiful things are not boastful or pretend to be bright in the daylight. Instead they shine when the world is dark and asleep…

 

~Good Night 😊
