Laps of oscillatory movements,

with moments as fulcrum of  thoughts,

the ropes of bonds and love,

seated on the emotions crushed…


Here sways the swing of life with rhythm…


Darkness prevails engulfing the light,

visibility diminishes , weakening the mind,

a lantern of hope burns and illumines,

the path untrodden …untraversed in life…


In such a way sways the swing of life in rhythm…


Pivot of the spirit , we decide,

accordingly the living takes the ride,

Dangling with the  strings of  our deeds,

Swinging against the wind is a newness we find!


Thus ! sways the swing of life!


Swaying beautifully ,flowing is  the swing of life!

In rhythm it moves and sweeps!

gently touching the air divine,

 infinitesimally making  our presence shine!

    Yes, the swing of life – bring us up and then somehow by all laws of nature – down with a promise of being up again. Your poem is a wonderful reminder about that.

      Thank you dear! It truly reminds us every time we sit on it and forget everything gives the feeling of a larger picture

      Thank you Wendell! Life itself gives the feeling of a swing as we close our eyes and be in solitude. the vibrations take us everywhere then.

    Everytime the life swings from one paradigm to another, there’s something good about it! Though by all we human beings like to be at the old phase of comfort, still the hope finally light up inside! Lovely and refreshing read!🙂
