I saw a garden of roses

Exquisitely red, filled with aromatic doses

Earth had adorned a velvet sheet, it appeared

Gazing at their beauty, my worries disappeared

Calmly they stood reflecting their poise

They talked and laughed but no noise

The lights of the sun fell on their beautiful petals

Refracting the light, the dews collected on every sepal

Defying gravity, drops stood still

Low energy they possessed, at their will

They swayed passively in the breeze

conversing actively and none disagrees

I dashed into that garden enchanted

To be one of them and my wishes granted

Hurriedly I ran, fell but again stood up

But the distance never seemed to sum up

The nearer I approached, the farther it went

And no where on the way, I could smell its scent

Tired, I stopped and gasped for air

In front of me, my illusion lay bared

Wanderlust, I was chasing and my dreams sabotaged

Nothing it was, but a MIRAGE.

Good poem. In life it happens sometimes when you want to achieve something and you run and run after that but last you find it was illusory and everything in vain.
But one should tried their best that level….

Yes, truly we face too many illusions in our life and this poetry of mine surfaces many perspectives, you may take roses as us humans and then it would be a different perspective. 😊
