Like the faraway claret coloured sunset 
 transmuting into a sapphire's blueness 
  heart flutters in arbitrariness 
  rushing ache in veins watching flapping silhouettes !

did we ever notice
 colours of sky
emerald leaves
twinkled eyes
suppressed smiles
blushing lips
dance of butterflies
or carpet of pearls
 on grasser green ?
Else fathomed ever
 the soothing touch  
 immersed in real essence
A potion of pain 
 in magical fingers
in an embrace
in a cuddle;
in a pat,
as cure of  miseries
respite to griefs
absolution to holdbacks
freedom to recover,
liberty to express,
authority to grow;
 yet we forget
diminish our charm
losing self
in captivity of limitations
in confinement of materialistic affinities
in detention of superficiality
 in shallowness
of living!
When shall then clock strike
to wake us from
the delusion 
in cognizance of truth
hearing inner voice?

  1. This is stunning. The opening lines are masterful. Loved the closing para; no, in fact loved the whole poem speaking of the mad race behind materialistic, shallow stuff. I too wish there was an alarm clock to wake the whole humanity from this delusion.

    1. Thanks a lot Neeraj. It is the reflection of wht one should have realised but have missed in pace of life. This lockdown should bring back the sensitivity of bonds, appreciation and value of everything in everyone

      1. I hope it does. This is an unfortunate time, but still a great opportunity for everyone to introspect and reset everything. If this doesn’t happen now, I don’t think it’ll ever happen.

  2. Well done and I agree with your comment insofar that there has to be good from this lock-down, realizations of what is important in life and what really isn’t. Take care, Lauren
