“To Rise”- A Verse for Women’s day



It’s a dream ,

 A simple wish

Neither jewels fancy me

Nor the glitter of being rich…

As a tiny colourful bird,

I want to wing my feathers

Spreading in the open air

To hover over the colourless ocean…

 

Clipped , chained,

I lay in tethers

In the dark abyss

The dust of nostalgia

Suffocating my nostrils…

 

From ages , restrained I am

Crumpled like a rose ,petals crushed,

Oh! Who doth seen ,

The blood that oozes

When Iam strangled within my shelter…

 

Buried beneath the fire ablaze

Watch the smoke moving high

Kisses it ,the clouds white…

I await…to be born again..

from the ashes of the pyre…

Like a phoenix ..of modern times.

 

The Grey Shawl!


Beneath the grey shawl

I still shiver and tremble,

It shrouds my figure

Yet is devoid of the warm ensemble.

 

Sparingly I look up

Or try to search

The tattered shawl needs a mend

Few stitches shall repair the imperfect shred.

 

With a needle of courage

A thread of hope

I hide the patch and refurbish

It’s a new wrap in possession

The old torn is nowhere…

Water wont seep in

through the pores of this mantle ever…

The Final meet


the earthly pastels saw the morning dawn,
when the lush green meadows
ran through the long stretches...
met the flowing brook whilst on their way
...little flowers bloomed and kissed
the charming sway.

the tiny weeds along the path
brushed and saw the new grasses born...

and far away a cry reaches another ear,miles apart
across thousand seas, under the vast stretched sky
echoing semblance of loved thoughts
singing epics of the eternal bond ...

here arrives on the heart of the ultimatum
on the verge of the universal sphere
in the aura of the pristine atmosphere
under the colours of the azure
amidst the fragrance of thousand jasmines
the final meet..
the unison of the earthy colours with the golden aureate
destined and predestined to meet...

EUPHORIA


i held the cup ,

brimming in divine love

in trance , I stood underneath

the banyan tree!

my eyes transfixed

on the statuette

which my perception

envisioned in  thoughts deep.

melody resonated in the air

I in euphoria,

quivered

while I see my Lord!

manifest as the Gracious pastoral…

“Suroor of the Soul”.

Hope to catch you all up soon as I come back.Meanwhile enjoy the new poem  ” STALWART-THE DIVINE STAR“.
Till then,Best wishes and Happy blogging!
Soumya

A stalwart,

yes !

stands the pillar of life…

strong and erect in harder times.,

leans the weaker and the meek,

in its resistance

they discover

resolution to the hope bleak…

Under the grey clouds ,the column too cries

along with the drops of rain

it sings the lullaby,

sleeps the world ,oblivious of the scene…

morning comes..

and gasps one,

” Oh ! See the paint of the pillar isn’t tough nor fixed ! “

gapes the pillar and absorbs the shock,

for its duty is to stand like a rock!

what the world speaks ... and their remarks…

nothing should forbid the stalwart

from being an uncompromising divinely star! 

41 st year !


Under the golden rays scattered through prism of the sky

I shine with His Grace bestowed on my life

with body and mind surrendered to my Almighty!

The soul sparkles with a  intense smile…

My journey over the time and years

on the rough edges ,surfed through

the storms…

like a floating petal

HE sailed me through the turbulent weathers…

With every fall…I stood up again,

with every defeat ,I won,

my faith in Him grew with love

as I walked on this earth for the last forty years!

As a blessed child of Divine,

as a motherly sister ,

as a caring daughter

as a loving wife,

as an ideal mother

as a silent friend to every companion

on the path of truth and compassion,

I stand beneath the diamond studded sapphire

embracing the heaven with gratitude

for its unknown blessings in every measure…

THE ARCHANGEL OF LIFE


DSCF2908
Priceless than the costliest jewelthose which lie in the ravels of earth
or in the deep waters of ocean,
in the colours of the dancing peacock
spreads who his magnificence
within the deep jungles…
under the grey clouds striking a featured contrast…
precious than the million beauties of the universe,
excelling the comparisons of human deity
chiselled  by His  hands and tools of perfection,
glorified by His grace …
is the stature and charisma of the seraph..
the Archangel of life
who holds me high in the sky
winging me through the dense fog
with her wings of belief and love…
taking me to new unreachable destinations.
