A Life

Where hath thou vanished?

Drifting among the waves of callousness

Hiding behind the darkness of fear

Will you help us find your twin brother?

 

Oh Guilt! Eating mankind everyday

Plotting on the pyre of consciousness

Burning it bare , naked

Till the very last flame vanishes.

 

And then flooding the heart,

With cascades of memories

Bringing tears , every drop

More intense than the last.

 

Dark storm rising , rippling guilt

Tearing away shards of mistakes into one

Saving the consciousness

In a dire act of faith.

 

Oh! Mistake , why does thee torment?

Hiding crookedly in thoughts

Luring for a certain time

And then strike with your brother Guilt

 

You both have done enough damage

Wiping entire Kingdoms,

Threatening an entire civilization

Destroying love even in the time of cholera.

 

Light amidst the dark of darkness

Hope! Thee land among , light as a feather

Giving a strange feeling , 

A fleeting grace.

 

Lightning! Flood! Rampage!

All things being born new

The world looks different with love.

The Nature , Our mother , teaching us to love.

 

And then we learn to love

Mistakes doesn’t matter ,

Only the need to be felt alive , to love

Sweeping our very instincts.

 

Choose now! Mistake,guilt or love,hope?

The choice , the deepest desires not denied

Love? Love in mistakes done or mistakes in choosing love?

Hope? Hope in guilt being gone or guilt in hope staying?

 

Our life , orchestrated by Nature

A path , a faith renewed.

The ability to love , The rightness

Eclipsed every mistake made along the way.

“Mark…Mark….?”

“Oh.. Hi Kathy , i was bit lost there , how are you?”

“I was actually worried about you. I am fine. Why are you standing here from the past three hours staring at the picture on the wall?”

“Because i have never seen anything more beautiful than this.”

“Well what’s this , a snapshot of nature?”

“It’s more than that actually. Listen i am gonna try and explain , i have been lost in this beauty. Do you see the reflection of the tree over , the synchronicity of their being , as if they are greeting each other from different words. Look at the water , so tranquil as if helping the tree serve a higher purpose. The wonder of creation , a creation’s wonder.”

“Well mark i do appreciate the beauty but i do not understand your words. It’s so weird.”

“I didn’t expect you to understand Kathy, did you notice the a flower there , a tiny beautiful white soul?”

“Well yes…”

“You seem like that to me , standing at a site of nature’s perfection , being a part of it yet ignorant of that beauty.”

“Mark?”

“Oh well come on let’s go , i know what i want to be in the future.”

“What?”

“Well , a photographer.”

The Search

Hi Trifectans!! I so love photo challenges , here’s mine!

She glided past the window.

A lone woman in search of happiness.

A ghost , a gift of nature.

She merged in her book.

A woman on an eloquent quest.

An angel ,  nature’s gift.

Solitude

The nature

Is all for your self

To venture out

With your inner self

 

All I do is just to stare

To have the beauty in my heart bare

Who ever told staring was hopeless

Against beauty matchless

 

The glorious sun did shine

It’s penetrating gaze all mine

And the silent moon did speak

With me and the peak

 

The peak like a stone

Stood all alone

Ripped up, by us all

In its own solitary hall

 

As I march to join it

I know my life’s lit

To find a peace so profound

Its every meaning escapes sound

 

Solitude at night

Shines so bright

It takes me to a distant land

To give me a friend’s hand.

 

The fair breeze blew

My boundless joy flew

I cried out in sheer delight

As I took the timeless flight

 

I landed by the stream

To see white slivery cream

Joy flowed there like a treasure

Its meaning never measured

 

There I met a maiden fair

Beauty flowed in her every hair

In her eyes, I saw an enigmatic pool.

Where even fire burnt cool

 

Each day our friendship grew

Alas! Its meaning understood to few

Her every sight moved me

Nevertheless I thank thee

 

The maiden was my heart, my very own

Bound with joy in my gown

Your hearts your greatest gift

In joy and sorrow you together drift

 

Solitude benevolently did shower

Joys of immortal flower

This large entire creation

Is beauty’s perfect manifestation
