Just hold on

Life a melange, A pot -pourrie of love, Subtle and soft, Fragrant calm, Absorbing, That rippled fear, That tearful torrent, That maelstrom of emotions.

Then, Only then, We look inside, Seeking solace, From… Continue reading Just hold on

Sun sets, Rays Amber hued, Golden Beauty fleeting, It rises to shine more brightly, Again. Tides charm away storms, As you surf the sea of life, Drifting on the sands of time, You find its dazzled halo behind, A glistening trail, Permeating a fiery hope. Via: Writephoto

Leaving a fiery trail on dreary grey, The errant ray full of lively spright, A cavalcade of surging hope, Flaunting… Continue reading Hope(A double etheree)
