Lifeless appears life Whilst thou sleep through golden light Having lost the moment and time What remains is mirage of life Mere existence, Forgetting to breathe Unheard heartbeats Criss cross shades umpteen Lifeless life of monochrome Tis monotonous if we forget to dream and wish Colours deluged many a times frame remains colourless ©Soumya
To the alterego
looked up the heart
frantically finding its very own part
amidst the solitude of chaotic silence
while a hope of reassurance sparks
Beside the spirit, walking far
the journey of introspection thus starts .
- After long participating in Mindlove Miseries Menagerie
I offered myself as an offering
On the altar of beguiled love
Surrendering to the rules of heart
Walked endlessly falling routes
Thorns pierced and so did words
Flowers showered when praise showcased
Oh! The petals shriveled and dried the nectar
Colours forgotten and music lost in
Path to heaven.
An offering I made of myself ,
Nothing more to offer
And I remain thus forever.
They speak volumes
the reed of a nomad
flow of a brook
gaze of a look
silence of the rocks
darkness of the night
twinkling of stars
a potter’s wheel
a poet’s nib
feelings of heart
Written for THE DAILY PROMPT- VOLUME
Oh ! who understands the serrated pangs of lone soul
betwixt the gaps of words and intermittently flowing ink
Living on the feeds of meager food of hope
awaits for a golden dawn in lap of nature…
the lone anklet beckons and sings
fables of fulfillment
under the twinkled envelope of desire
and peeps the moon
through grey clouds
for a glimpse of that
intrinsic ornament in silver …
the silent throbbing of heart
whose melody is unheard
longs the yearning in unspoken notes
when will the mingling breaths conjure ?
Like two souls lost in a solitary desert
beneath this canopy of stars
Oh ! why do I stand alone again
Whence the peeping moon
quietly hides behind the grey clouds
one tiny drop curls and slides
etching a dry line
every night thus
my eyes silently witness

Soumya & Shaheen
Isn’t that the world we dreamt
loving daisies and tulips smiling
few stars to count in the bare open sky of a sleepless night
while the moon peeped and stared at our clumsiness and laughter
and the waves of Adriatic would caress the symphony of our souls in pleasure
Won’t that be the astral world of ecstasy
blissful and non pragmatic
divine and perpetual in nature?
