Decibels of Joy, Unsung verses, A placid symphony, It is that time of year. A surreal white, A burnished cold, That warms your heart, Soothing the anguish, Subduing the rant, It makes you smile. You want to live it each time, For it is that time of year, When love pervades, Amidst jingles of joy,… Continue reading Jingles of Joy
weary soul trudges clanging on cobbled clutter of life's edifice
Lot of water, Under the bridge has flown. Gusts of wind , They have blown the sand away. The verdant bush, Trimmed but has grown all the way. The flowering blossoms, Bloomed to scatter their seeds afar. Bees buzzing, They have found new petals. The twittering birds, They have found new nesting grounds. The hibernating… Continue reading Circle of Life
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
A part when those curtains come down, And when deep old memories float, Reminding you of times remote, A fast relay of life's countdown, Only you smile at the rundown. When all your dear dreams were weary And Life's maze seemed harshly eerie, It is just darkness before dawn, And Life's begones are now bygone,… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 40: (FLOAT) in the B rhyme line.
Lost in grey haze,On the dewy hills,Lusty gales whipping by,I am-Softly caressed,By luscious vapoursthat wash away my blues,Unseen solace sublime,For clouds would one day driftto let in sun shine.

But, Not always, The tiny ray finds it way, It gets lost in the misty abyss, Absorbed… Continue reading An errant ray

A Life adrift without a cause, Dreams that were dear now gone awry, For luck always turns a blind eye, All well laid plans come to a pause, For life seems full of unseen flaws, Alone floated unmoored mired grain, Now washed bright in the falling rain, Effervescence of sparkling spray, Suffusing, it with a… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 51: (CAUSE) in the A rhyme line
As cold seeps through, Its icy hands permeating my soul, Turning the warm expanse glacial, The burnished fires lit around, They fail to thaw the frigid fervour, I shiver on wintry,frozen paths, Seeking solace, Cherishing a yearning ardour, A tender touch, To deliquesce the frozen feelings, Letting a gush of sanguine flow, No longer dreading… Continue reading As winter comes
