Colours

A dream, That recurs, Fills my mind. Colours of the rainbow dance, Inside the kaleidoscope, Mixing and turning, Weaving patterns before my eyes. Colours flow, Sunlight trapped in gold, in the wide expanse of the river. Colours stop and stare, From a bright flower. They entice as they cover, The land in green expanse of … Continue reading Colours

Repentance

On some days, Thoughts come to haunt me. They come riding on wings Of the dry autumn breeze That is laced with snowy chill. Scattering the fallen yellowed leaves it comes, Kindling bygone days. My mind then goes into a whirl. Like waves of a turbulent sea, Memories rush in Crashing with fury Hurting, Stinging … Continue reading Repentance

Repossess

Building stronger barricades Erecting … Continue reading In Nature’s Lap

Aspiration

There is a heaven! The one that we always dream of. Somewhere in that azure sky, Where the milky white cottony clouds float about; Sometimes tinged golden by the sun Or in shades of pink and purple at dusk. There is a heaven that we all dream of, Aspire for, Want to be part of. … Continue reading Aspiration
