The Swing

Hills beyond the meadows peek,

Calls back the Earth for then retreat,

Lo! Gone away with swooshing sweep,

Caressing voyager ambling breeze.

Atop the sun momentarily though,

A flash of golden to and fro,

Slithering past the grasses away,

Darkening shades of shadows grey.

Charming glint, a sparkle white,

Pleasant tunes of songs delight,

Bliss of spirit, timeless scene,

Spell of mirth, the joy of being.

Aftermath

One smile here,

One cheer there,

Scintillating aura,

Shine everywhere.

Devoid grown dry,

Along with wry,

Sunk, withered

And slowly die.

Dark crucifies

Alight in guise

Emerge, Renewed,

Boundless, flies.

Finding a Friend

Year by year came and went
Wandering in life was all that meant

By grace so kind though at the end
Miracle! To find one true a friend

Winged words from mind and tales to tell
As if have known for eons so well

Divine The Force can only send
Blessings! To meet such true a friend

*The poem expresses the joy and exhilaration of meeting a true friend. I have had many such experiences and feel very proud about it. I think friendship is the most wonderful of all relationships. Even in our father, mother, brother, sister, husband or wife, we seek a ‘friend’. Realizing that we have a true friend/s gives unparalleled joy.

WordPress, Why ye disappear my words?

Dear WordPress why ye disappear

Words I etched with stones so clear

It’s not sound it’s not fair

My words you dissolve in thin air

Long a spell away from home

Reading blogs along I roam

Express when I of love and care

My words you dissolve in thin air

Kins and comrades figures in space

jovial familiar charming grace

Friendly pleasantries when I share

My words you dissolve in thin air

And when with mirth a friendly note

Came and quick I neatly wrote

Back and then I saw nowhere

My words you dissolved in thin air.

(PS: For a long time, the office works clogged me from returning to blogging. But I used to roam around and read blogs. Unfortunately, some of my comments disappeared immediately after I posted on someone’s post. Sometimes it stayed and that was fine. But the disappearing comments made me crestfallen. I still find the ailment persisting in WordPress. It is disappointing.)

Once in a blue moon

Once in a blue moon

torrents of rain

clutching the earth fast

tides in vain.

Once in a blue moon

stranger, a face

hazy, the fog white

longing embrace.

Once in a blue moon

darkness the cloud

roaring the flash light

whispers so loud.

Once in a blue moon

silence descends

surreal alone white

quiet;  it ends.
