Sail of Life

Soothing lunar light-
Falling on your dewy skin.
Gazing starry eyed at
The infinite horizon;
Attempting to
Grasp every single detail.
Living in the moment
Breathing in crisp air
Letting yourself
Go with the flow.
Setting sail of life
In the direction
Of the wind.
Surrendering oneself
To the energy within & around.

Solitary Butterfly

A solitary lavender butterfly
Hovering over vibrant orange marigold
Purple and white periwinkle
In search of nectar
That will set it free
From clasps of hunger and fatigue
Tiny lavender butterfly
Hovering against the wind
Among others like her own
Yet setting her apart from the rest
As she sits and hovers
In the wilderness sans fear
A solitary carefree butterfly
We all can be
In this wild wild world
Fearless and unbound.

P.S: I’m writing on this platform after a very long gap and I would like to post more often and get connected with my readers and fellow bloggers out here at wordpress. I don’t know why I stopped writing, I’ve written few pieces which I haven’t shared over here. I would love to come back here and be a part of this beautiful community that holds an important place in my life. Well, I hope I’ll be posting more often and reading posts too over here at WordPress. Till then. Tata 🙋‍♀️😊🌻🌻🌹🌹

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.

You’re home to me

I have muttered those words
to someone;
Well, I never heard it back.
I guess we all traverse the roads
that are not connected to
the path of our destiny.
Living in the present
I guess we all try to forget
the words we have uttered,
the words that we have silenced
and the word that are yet to be said!
That’s life I suppose-
Between the world of words and that of reality.
It’s like, we never see it coming
what’s best for us, which eventually
is given to us.
We need to have some faith, as
there’s the best of everything out there-
Just for us.

Rowing away solitary

free-shipping-boy-girl-collecting-shells-impression-seascape-canvas-prints-oil-painting-on-canvas-wall-art

I’m floating in stagnant waters
You are no where to be seen.
We started our journey
Together on a boat
We drowned in bliss of melodies
We enjoyed together
We rowed away;
Happy as people for life
But here I’m-
Floating in the stagnant water
Where your trace is long gone!
You’re aboard another boat
With someone who you adore.
It’s sad you don’t realize what we were
It’s sad that I do
I guess letting go is all I have
With all the strength I have
I’m letting you go.
Good bye dear friend
I’ll just remember the good times we shared
In the past, that made us smile
From eye to eye.
I shall continue to row solitary,
as the ripples fill in
life- into the stagnant water
Of life, that had dulled-
the light in me.

STARRY SKIES

8e93224cf7e9cff2fb81b95978c48d90.jpg

Laying on a bed of sand,

Ever-changing patterns

Of the crystals that guard-

My body, my soul.

Every time I move,

I yearn to leave an impression

On the world that I call my own.

My shadow has departed

Enabling me to revere

Every single memory

Uncloaked and bare.

I still lay amidst the grains of gold

Cautiously eyeing the

Glistening moon;

My lamenting heart

Attempting to contemplate the-

Synchronicity of my imprudence

And tribulation.

The gurgle and lashing

Of the waves

Echoing in my ears,

Leaving no stone un-turned

To mask the thudding of my

Reckless memories that are rushing

In my mind that remains clogged

And misted and numb.

The wind blowing kisses

To my soul that lay bare

Exposed and vulnerable-

To the audacity of fellow humans

Dancing in my memories

To a tune of their own.

The sky is studded

With resplendent stars

Simulating the flicker of hope

That illuminates my soul

Every now and then.

And here I am

On a bed of sand

Fancying for this

Comforting night

To never end.

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.
