The rolling verdant expanses offer an infinite panorama of life. The valley is lush with dancing blossoms. They are imbued with warm colours of Mother Nature. Tall pines soar high majestically paying an obeisance to the blue skies. The denizens of the blue canopy above traverse down to lend their colours to the world below.… Continue reading What do you see? April 9/2019 (The circle of life- a Haibun)
Smouldering sands, Scorching souls, Scalding hearts, Searing pain. Walking on those dreary paths, Seared with its fiery heat, You learnt, Learnt to forbear. Come what may, You trudge along. The fiery heat, It embalms you, Infusing in you a radiant strength, You jest with fiery wrath, Mocking at its incessant downpour. The angry droplets merely… Continue reading Smouldering Sands
Sharp rays golden edged, Darted deep into my heart, As dark cold seeped out. .
Man a fool, Always he feigned to be cool, Donning a charade to win hearts, But all he got back were nasty darts, Still he milked all that ridicule!
A song, Euphonious, Lilting,stirring,blending, Spreading tranquility unfeigned, A bliss.
Soulful melody through whispering trees, Luscious notes reverberating through, Infusing into my deep core, Redolent with love unbound, Seeping into cold veins, An ambrosial rythm, Full of sweet love Icicles, Melted, A Bliss, Deep.

A soul soared high, Bonds broken, An Ariel free, It waltzed to the notes, Its own. And denizens below, It watched them, Faces seen, Aeons ago, Now saying kind words, No longer in a surly tone. Maybe! They were glad to see it go. Goodies passed, Tables laid in bountiful, Dainty linen, Shining cutlery on… Continue reading As it soared high
My words are Love and Joy. Passion and Rapture are the synonyms that I have taken for my Enteree A utopian dream that could be true, Deluged with an ecstatic rapture, The verdant lands with ardor lush, A blizzard of hope abounds, Fountains of passion gush, Redolent and soft, Ambrosia sweet, Quenching thirst, Of souls,… Continue reading Colleen’s 2019 Weekly#Tanka Tuesday#Poetry Challenge No.126″ Poet’s Choice of Words”
You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent. And your memories are suspended in time. Lives that you have brushed up against, Now live with an imprint of you, Firmly trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory not. You leave the steps in the sands of time, And you come… Continue reading Shadows
