Raindrops

When the desperate prayers
reach the boundless skies…

Clouds appear to quench
the relentless thirst of parched eyes…

Soothing rain downpours,
seeping through the cracks
drenching the core…

Tenderly caressing the withered soul, releasing
sweet petrichor….

Munificent raindrops, the
blessings in disguise…

Each drop promises renewal
each drop promises life….

Destination

Through the complicated journey
of myriad vicissitudes of life…
the perpetual waves of
struggle and strife…

the ups and downs..
the thorns and crowns..

the truths and lies..
the guffaws and cries…

the rises and falls..
the storms and squalls…

the light and darkness..
the strengths and weaknesses…

Climb up to the moon
and follow the star…
As the destination
is never too far…

Autumn 🍁🍁

Beneath the wistful skies, I behold…
the sight of auburn autumn, on my threshold…

Sweeping strokes of the whistling winds, brushing my cheeks….
Under the fading warmth of sun and air, so bleak…

Once brimming with youth, the sunflowers bold….
Now stooping down and
growing old….

Once swooning in verdant luscious foliage….
the lovelorn trees now, standing bare in daze….

Lifeless russet leaves swirling in melancholy dance…
Under the beguiling
autumn’s trance…

Withered leaves falling one by one to the ground….
Weaving the tapestry of organic brown….

To the cadence of wilted leaves falling in reprise….
I relinquish, let go and swirl like a broken leaf in the autumn of my life…

Butterfly

shallow focus photography of brown and white butterfly on orange and yellow flowers during daytime

Under the glistening glow of sweet sunlight,
spreading across the azure sky…
From a dark and dormant chrysalis
emerges a little butterfly…

Liberated and transformed;
she unfurls her wings, delicate and dainty…
And flutterby, she flies
basking in the glory of her beauty…

Feasting on the sweetest flowers
Floating on the fragrant zephyrs…
She flaps her angelic wings,
cornucopia of brightest colours…

Dancing in ecstasy, pirouetting carefree…
She soars sky high, knows no periphery…
Embracing the change, leaving behind every sorrow…
She savours every moment,as if there is no tomorrow…

To embark on a new journey
To ride on a new road…
The humble butterfly
now rests in her humble abode…

Droplet of life

nature romantic blue garden

The Sun, today shines brighter
than ever…
like a blistering gigantic goblet
of fire…
gnashing its teeth in rage of
anger…
flaming and blazing in red-hot
attire…

Scorching heat and fierce ablaze…
as if the earth is baking in furnace…
Parched land, browning verdant ,
barren soil, deep turmoil,
mercury higher and bodies perspire…
indolent life keen to retire…

The luminous orb, inferno of gases
burns itself in the fiery flashes…
out of altruism and to spread
the wisdom
of rising again like a phoenix
from ashes…
and incinerate all the demons
lurking inside…
and value the tiny
droplet of rain…
droplet of life…
