Hope

# poetry

Even in the darkest hour

With no light, strength and power

I do hope for the best

For life is nothing but a test

I just sit and wait down

For the brightest light in the town

To make its way through the dark

To enlighten me with a spark

When people drifts away

Leaving me marooned to find my own way

I take a deep breath

Fanning away my wrath

And walk miles alone

Though not becoming a rolling stone

I take a leap of faith

To open every closed gate

When life becomes shrewd and shatter me into pieces

Contravening my expectations yet it also teaches

How to mend and glue my fragments

How to re-color each and every segment

And augment myself to never break again

No matter how much I have to endure pain

I search for possibilities infinite

To brush me up and ignite

To see hope in every little element, I should succour

Just flow with the symphony of tides to sustain and await a magic to occur

For this is the only way to keep yourself alive

To spring back from affliction and thrive.

Avenoir

#poetry #haiku

Fear is tacit

Visible journey behind

Veiled future ahead

The beauty of life is not knowing what future holds for us. We peel off tomorrow layer by layer living the present of our future as we stroll through each day.

For instance, If we would know we will not become successful we would have stopped trying long before, if we would know, we will achieve wonders, still we would have stopped trying. In both the cases, we would end up doing nothing. In the former we would forebode and in the latter we would become hubristic.

And in between both of these, where will life be lived?

I so want to humm these lines..

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream..

God has created a perfect balance of our mind to not foresee the future and row your boat facing backwards, so you can correct your past mistakes and not repeat them in the future.

Avenoir.

Seems like a wondrous feeling to unveil what is coming, to have this desire to know the unknown but the charisma and liveliness of this life lies in the gradual lifting of the curtains.

One more curtain is raised as we enter 2021, what all it will bring for us, where will we be, what all we will gather and what all will slither away, we can’t prospect. One thing that is foreknown is the love of your God and your own control towards your behavior.

So, loving and believing in the love of your most loved One and thanking HIM for every little wonder we have, let’s welcome another year with sanguinity, hope and aspirations.

Happy new year everyone, to you and all your loved ones.

I am so thankful to each one of you again for your love and support. Five months I have given to this platform and in return achieved so much, more than 1000 followers as well.

To know you all and to be connected with some of you so well, is such happiness for me.

Stay safe, stay blessed and be happy (that’s completely in your control) 😊

Senescence

#poetry

Sea of memories conjures up my mind

a little stimulus creates a ripple

And a wave of emotions drench my soul

While I sit here rocking my chair and rewind the life’s stroll

How vibrant were my salad days

What a sunshine smile my face wore

To live in cloud cuckoo land was just so fun

How one by one things fades in the long run

Springtime of life with little flowers in my garden

How beautifully they turned into big trees

Where to look for umbrage I wonder

The sun shines brighter each day and I find the shade just always yonder

Loneliness is always so unforeknown

My garden awaits those tiny parakeets

Oh how they fluttered around all over

Oh how I kept them safe and maneuver

They laugh and become angry at me like I used to, at them

Oh how well have I trained them to train me now

My skin is haggard, teeth gone and bones tremble

But still, why I want to be them even my heart stumbles

Buy just a little while my parakeets

And fly time and again to sing a lullaby

For in there lies my happiness and peace

You never know when will the time cease.

Allow me to seize these times as well

And etch them to my core forever

As I just sit here alone rocking my chair

Swallowing the lemonade of yester years.

Wreckage

#poetry

While rummaging around to unlock my cognition

I stumbled upon a picture that eclipsed my vision

I couldn’t persevere but to go back in time

And stand there to witness the destiny’s crime

I could see their bewitching countenance

Smiling at me with credence

Some going for a vacation

While some returning to their nation

Some talking to their mother and saying goodbye

While some with their wives promising to be back soon and enjoy a pie

A young lad I see sitting adjacent to the isle

Very excited he seems to go back home after a long while

A little angelic soul crying due to ear pain

Who would know all will wash away with rain

New wings waiting to flap

And dreams umpteen to unwrap

Just a hit by destiny’s black shadow

Darkening their enlightening rainbow

Hues and cries, prayers and forgiveness

Oh God why this mercilessness

To vaporize their souls in the midst of nowhere

Loved ones left behind receiving merely a phone call to hear

Whatever happens has a reason and a lesson

Our days are numbered, there’s an end to every session

A crash, an illness or just in sleep

We will have to go down deep

Cherish your days, your moments

For there never is a second life enrollment

As this wreckage declares

“Hold on until all disappears”

Dear Son, Happy Birthday

#poetry #limerick

Our little trooper has turned three

A ping pong ball he is I do agree

Oh I so love his bugs bunny beak

May he grow up to be like an oak tree, such unique

Joie de vivre he is to us for free.

Masha Allah you turned three today.. When I try to turn back the pages of the past two years with you, i really get amazed at how you grew up from a teensy weensy soul lying helplessly to the one who never rests… I looked into your glittering eyes when I held you for the first time and felt every bit of calm and peace.

I assumed you had too many questions to ask as your eyes wandered here and there.. And now when I even try to look what’s in your eyes, trust me you don’t even allow me to do that. You are so restless that I truly wonder when will I again get a chance to feel that calm and peace.

It’s just  three years with you but from day one you made me realize the love, care, bond, sacrifice, responsibility a mother does all her life and made me much much more closer to my mother. Not just for these three years, but I wish you health for all your life. I just pray you return your love to all those people who are on their toes all day for you my little prince.

I wish you be strong enough to conquer this world as this world is a dark place and full of mirage. Just play and sail through with compassion in your heart and achieve what’s best for you in this world and hereafter. And may be someday you will be big enough to see through my eyes and I will just smile and get all my answers.

Phantasm

#poetry #haiku

Improvident chase

Dazzled by life’s conundrums

Blindfold vaporize

Life is all about chasing and accomplishing our dreams and desires but often we get so much entangled and bedazzled in the cobwebs of our Supreme thoughts thinking we conquered that we forget we really shall taste death and we are here sailing for a little while.

There will be an end to everything. What all we will take with us and leave behind will be love, blessings, our deeds and memories. We do will have to answer our doings, our sayings and then only we will discern, life was a phantasm.

Life is beautiful indeed, enjoy and live its beauty but don’t surmise it will be eternal because your eternity belongs somewhere else.

Before I sleep

#poetry

An aurora of a new tomorrow

Far away from betrayal and sorrow

A lightning streak to follow

Voices so euphonious and mellow

Hearts benevolent but not so hollow

Will I be able to sow and reap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

Foraging Into the woods

To go lost, if I could

Charismatic fireflies under the hood

Catch them to enlighten my den, I would

Be enchanted as I did in my childhood.

In pursuit of unfulfilled desires assembled in heap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

To live in a bewitching meadow,

Where there is no class, creed or its shadow

No race, disgrace or discrimination to endow

Be an illuminating candle by the Window

And opening my eyes to a new rainbow

Would I ever take such a gigantic leap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

Time Slithers By

#poetry

Hold on for a while and catch a little breath

Let your effervescence not restrained

From getting entwined with the moment

Do perceive and reflect

As much as you can

Soak the warmth of the sun

Feel the texture of the sand

Go lost in the colors of the sky

The prized laughter of your beings

Just take a moment to cherish

As the time is slithering and will soon perish

Don’t await for tomorrow to relish

The essence once gone never replenish

Don’t tie up your inner butterflies

Let them flutter

For if you save them for later

Nothing will you ever cater

Man never settles until their doom

With those twinkling eye drops

Smiling and laughing you can only reminisce

You can’t perceive and live them again

Neither will you be the same

Neither will be those who loved you so

You will see a long crowded past behind

But a short lonely journey ahead

Borrow a moment to saunter

In the alley of merriment

To attain felicity, peace and patience

Don’t you please stack up your delights

You shine and chime to the moments rhyme

Just take a little while to cherish

As the time is slithering and will soon perish.

Two Cardinals

#poetry

Undulating, I flew through the air

Prattling and absorbing the secrets of the breeze

Contented and in compliance with the treaty of life

Until I stumbled and went head over heels

One fine day it was

While Foraging I heard moans of despair

My soft heart started melting

As I saw a survivor of hawk attack hiding and fighting for breath

For as long as I can remember being in delusion

My alter ego swayed and lingered with me

Together we dwelled building our roost

Singing our hearts out until the daylight waned

There was a nip in the air, overcast sky

As the chilly winds started to blow by

I opened my eyes to see you nowhere

My frantic search led me to now here

I sang for hours and waited for an echo

As Countless dawns and dusks swept by

Then, unforeseen, you flashed like a bolt in the blue

Happily singing with other beaks in your demesne

I don’t have any answer to your caprice

Just to forgive you for being a chimera, let you disappear like you never were

And when I see those little heads rising from my den

I find hope, reason and a carpet of life stretched out to live and love.

Mystery Blogger Award 1st and 2nd

Mystery blogger award 1st:

I am very much thankful to Astha for nominating me for this award, my very first nomination. I truly apologize for taking forever to post this, was just engaged with usual stuffs.

Astha is a wonderful writer, her poems are just splendid. Do visit her blog; https://asthaisha13.wordpress.com/

The Rules:

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention Okoto Enigma, the creator of the award.
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself.
  • Answer 5 questions from the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 10 – 20 bloggers.
  • Notify your nominees by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, including 1 weird or funny question.
  • Share the link to your best post.

Three things about me:

1. I trust everyone quite easily if they portray themselves to be kind, well, later I often regretπŸ˜‰.

2. I am quite patient, don’t get stressed easily and even if I do, I can hold it back for quite a bit of time.

3. I forgive and forget. 😊

Questions and Answers:

1. What are you completely over and done with?

There are a whole lot of things I wish to get over and done with, few I have already, few are in the process. I have stopped taking myself for granted in the eyes of everyone (well, these everyone are always your very closed ones).

2. What’s most important thing Covid-19 taught you?

It taught me that everything in this world is temporary, no matter what. One fine day, you may wake up to realize all were merely vapors, what remains with you is their scent. So, love and live until all appears a dream.

The Almighty can bring this universe upside down while all our science and technology gazes in amazement.

3. What random stranger has had the biggest impact in your life?

While on a tour to Luzern, Switzerland, we met one elderly couple in their eighties, very well dressed, they were enjoying and touring as they said winters are approaching and we will be packed inside for long. Their children visited them occasionally and they would be spending the winters alone.

It made me realize, in your old age, it’s only your better half who would be with you ( if you are fortunate enough) and I so felt this anguish within me to imagine how my mother feels (She lost my father when we were small).  That hit me hard.

4. If you could put your brain in a robot and live indefinitely, would you?

I never can as my heart always rules my brainβ™₯️>🧠 and without my heart beating, I am dead already. Better to be alive for a while than to be dead forever. πŸ˜€

5. What do you wish you had more time for?

I wish I had more time to spend with my mother, I visit her for a while and in that span also, busy doing my own work and then come back only to realize how little time we spent together.
