Moonlit Night

©️Shambhavi

Its a moonlit night
Shining down on us,
Starry eyed the velvet sky-
Of blue so deep & vermilion.
On the brink of extinction-
“Fear” tonight;
Bidding farewell to the
Redundant thoughts,
That are now beyond the mind
Which craved for peace once
Is now clothed in solace.
With every crease of passing time
Abandoning thoughts far behind;
Embellishing the moment
With caressing wind & energy divine.

Nature’s Lap

Ebony rocks bearing streaks afresh
Amidst varied shades of green
Under the blue expanse
Tiny streams gurgling
Trees of Banyan and
Gulmohar tangerine
Lushness of the meadows
Cows grazing in vicinity
Of clouds that have gathered
To shower their blessings
Its indeed a beautiful day
Ornamented with pleasant
Cool breeze
As it caresses my face
I continue to sit
In the lap of nature
Suffused with the energy
That surrounds.

Season of hope

With leaves crimson red
Flowing past us,
Fallen detached on the ground-
Amidst the leaves green and crisp.
Reminding us of the undeniable
Fact of life which is often forgotten-
We must never lose hope!
As the leaves turn red,
they fly away
Leaving space for new ones.
This is the season of hope;
Let the light of hope and faith
Illuminate your life forever.
~Shambhavi

Retreating waves

The waves: they retreat
they hinder the flow;
Of the waves that are-
approaching the shore
Reflecting the cycle of life.
The more you retreat back
into the past,
the present is lost
into the sands of time.
Don’t let your past
hold you back!
Stay in the present
Live in the moment,
Let the past flow away.

Among the wildflowers

Between the lines
Under the starry skies
Among the wildflowers
Along the waves
In the arms of nature
Kissed by the rising sun
Embraced by the breeze
I lay beside you
My head on your chest
Our souls converge
On the land of serendipity
Holding our souls
Is the promise of eternity.
~Shambhavi

Lotus

The petals that bloom
Dissipates light in gloom
Rises above the murk
Altercates darkness that lurks
The symbol of purity
The petals of serenity
Divine flower that unfurls
Suffusing universe with love as it swirls.

MOONSTRUCK

A curve set high
Up in the dusky skies,
Amidst the blue-ness of the clouds;
Complementing the mood
Of the night that’s just
About to set!
The skies that smiles be-jewelled,
The stars they are in full bloom-
Charmed by the glistening moon.
Aroused by the dimly illuminated
Night, consumed by the sound
Of the lashing waves against the shore,
Setting the universe ablaze
With the passion that
Now circles the sky.
I lay amused:
On a bed of sand
Enamored by the sublime
Essence of tonight,
Enthralled by the beauty
Of the moon.
