shadowed backdrop

I sit down, relating to the beauty
found

upon the flowers in the nearby park
a connection deep

and stark

perfuse
with fragrances misting through the air
alighting

with the greatest of care
and devotion, making me grin

as elation comes up

and I witness the sun hiding in the shadowed backdrop

cosmic eyes

broken hearts of the wind

are gentle, in times when strings are
thin, and fierce

as we gather the materials within

to live, love, and laugh at the sky

reminding me

of how hard we all try
even when we want to shout

we can still let it go by

with a pause, and a breath
watching the waves wash over our missteps

revealing, and relating

the nature of the cosmos in your eyes

of a love

that always shines

indigo fields

I like to live underneath the trees
they satisfy me, and

my sensibility

of the known and unknown

Did you know that around every corner a bend is shown?

among the flowers, long and tall
as they, to me, draw

nearer, and

for the first time in life
a kaleidoscope of colors becomes clearer

purples and pinks always delight
while amber hues, and the relational aspects

of the indigo fields
speak to me of a love

lingering

in the shadows
awaiting its time to shine

upon you and I

wish upon the birds…

moon encrusted evening, walking among the fields
of daisies, birds circling in air, like thoughts
running through

veins,
fare and,
attention
made
bare

I dream of other lands, while grounded in the past,
and wish upon the birds, their beauty, at
times

misunderstood…

slowly, I crane toward the sky, their look is a
glimpse of magnificence, we all
should

take into
account, and
be proud of the beauty
throughout

the moments given, each one is sacred, bestowed
upon us with a love that is
thrilling
and

delightful, just like the pink hues look, as they
swallow my past, and take me towards
the present moment

at
last
it is
a stark
contrast…

In response to the WDYS #116 Prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

I gently wish upon a star, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am excited to share my poem, I gently wish upon a star, which is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Though this is my last poem of the year with MasticadoresIndia, I am very excited about being a regular monthly contributor next year. Thank you again to Terveen Gill, and the entire team at MasticadoresIndia for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

I gently wish upon a star

heartaches, reminding me of earthquakes,
experienced in between the lines,
moving past mistakes

of a life, this life, lived in moments unsure,
and in others, grown taller
than the applewood trees flowers…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
