Journey in...

pandemonium inundated
a chaotic mind
not knowing 
where to dive
I plunged inside
a tunneled inroad
that's how it seemed
feelings interspersed 
in layers deep
as I unraveled
I was touched by
what I unearthed
a free spirit that
danced in mirth
enchanted with all
the kosher love-in
thus, began
my journey in...

Waves

beautiful, wild, mysterious n' free
were the waves that crashed in on me!

as I walked asea
from the pristine shoreline
I could see the wonders of Nature
entwined with the divine
the briny waves lapped at me
their whooshing sound quietened me
the setting sun calmed me
the flight of birds freed me

I could feel within the sensitized ME
a feeling that had long eluded me

O! what a wondrous delight the waves could be
Wish I could forever enjoy this reverie!

Reflect

I pause at times
to see my state
in a new light
when my canvas is
overflowing with the
colors of life
not, all are
the brights, and
the hues
some are shaded
with grays, too
but as the
drops of colors
burst to form shapes
I feel, a feel
that is strange yet true
that they are
a vivid expression
of all that I do, and
the choices that I make
as life passes through!

One more TIME...

she saw opportunity 
when others saw nothing
for her the impossible 
didn't exist
she took the risks 
she survived the falls
an epitome of verve
encapsulated it all
till...
an extended phase of darkness
engulfed her for so long
she was distraught
she was torn
embracing solitude 
she withdrew her wings
stoned into numbness
standing still
till...
one fine night
when she was communing 
she realized that not all was over
that there was something inside her
that held her fragile self
from disintegrating altogether

she decided to give-in her all
one more time
she wanted to face life 
with tough resolve
one last time
as if on cue
her spirit soared
she felt hopeful once more
softly, she whispered
Oh! Universe, please conspire
help me tide this over...

Fragmented

fragmented mind filled with
fragmented thoughts
fragmented feelings in a 
fragmented heart
fragmented darkness streaked with
fragmented white
O! what do I make of this
fragmented life..?!

Rain

the pleasant smell of earth, and 
the blissful calmness around
the indulgence in wanting to cuddle up, and
the peace coursing through the frayed nerves
the wild breeze with its swishing sound, and
the rainbow in its colorful splendor
unparalleled is the happiness, ushered in
by this marvel of Mother Nature!

every cloud burst soothes my pain
rejuvenated, I feel whole again
so, palpable is the feeling of rain
I love the feeling of the rain, and
I would love to feel it
over and over, again and again..!!

Life gets through..!!

rebel
thinker
realistic
passionate
emotional soul
this in a nutshell
encapsulated her whole..!!

she loved to tread the unknowns
always making it on her own
when things didn't go as expected
she paused, reflected and devised
new stratagems to set it right
when her resolves
to face life slackened
she knelt down to pray and commune
softly whispering over n' over
O! Universe, I bow to THEE
your aura is overwhelming me
I've done my part, now, it's unto you
I believe in you, and know it is true
that when you conspire
life gets through..!!
