Numerous  petals of flowers sprinkled in water,

keep dancing ,floating over the placid layer,

Like the infinitesimal  moments of destiny,

enthralling and enchanting, which I cherish resurface…

What a captivating scene it is!

The innumerable saltation of  memories,

emerged from enamoring  thoughts ,

on the screen of  imagination,

creating a picturesque unique…

Illuminating me with the colourful luminances ,

as the  exuberant candles in the  lap of flowers drifted,

Embracing the warmth and radiance within,

holding close to my bosom I treasure the same…

Fragrances of the blossoms diffusing within the liquidness,

pervading through the waters elating the atmosphere,

The essence of the reminiscence  permeating in the soul clear,

spreading  tranquility…

in the  heart full of restlessness and fear….
