Cobbled Clutter

Full of adamant edifices, They never let us go! We fall, We rise, Only to fall again. Traversing rough terrains, Clanging on the cobbled clutter, Life goes on.

Letting go

I held onto things tight, Never letting go of it, even if my fingers hurt, Letting go of it, I would be losing a piece of my soul, Turning into a person unknown. But, A cataclysm, I set it all free, My heart filled with incandescent hope, I took solace in fleeting joy, That taught… Continue reading Letting go

As it soared high

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

Ivory Castle

She lived in an ivory castle Walls lined pink, And sky blue. Its wide expanse, Laced with a mystical beauty. Air fragrant, It blew with melodies profound. The sun shone, A luminous white all around. She sat there happy, She lived weaving dreams, Dreams of life to unfold. She looked high and low, Searching for… Continue reading Ivory Castle
