A Sense of Wonder

A Sense of Wonder

23 January 2015

Stars above burned bright

Exhaling scent of jasmine

The night sighed softly

Night’s cool stilled my wilderness

As I breathed in what she breathed

 

The nightingale sang

To a tune etched between times

The morrow embraced today

As dawn crept into my mind

That ceased its wandering quest

 

Pale shadows would stretch

Spirits dancing in the wind

To flames unbeknownst

The mind flickering responds

As it twists and turns in tides

 

A crow grazed like cows

Its beak a semblance of thorn

Lost are now its roots

Black in my mind left ajar

Left coal’s streaks among roses

 

Birds awoke to light

That stirred in their nest aflame

From sun’s beckoning

A lone memory called not

A heart that set its course right

 

The cock crowed no more

Its voice now silent on land

That stretched in stillness

A lake within flowed silent

Its surface clear of intent

 

Petunia now bloomed

Reaching out to sun’s kisses

As sunflower leapt

A leap of faith overcame

The longest bridges of mind

 

A tear fell silent

For the beauty of all

That unravelled grace

Softly spoken promises

That behold my eye in awe

  1. Geetha- You know poetry and how to make it sing. I really like the phase: Spirits dancing in the wind

    To flames unbeknownst

    The mind flickering responds

    As it twists and turns in tides

    Sometimes I read you and am soothed, sometimes restless and somewhat uncomfortable which is what its all about – to help others feel and think. Thank you. I like the Domino effect too
