On life and its vagaries


with 6 comments

The problem of playing with words is that they usually strike home in the most unexpected of places. This is one ever present danger and an exciting feature of them too.


A wisp of breath, warm to the touch

Played around on that lonely stretch

A mist-less dawn had finally broke,

With a truant sun, brushing its bruised gums

On the sky hung a grey shroud still

Just above the blues of eastern hills

And a wavy sea of mottled green

Was in front, spread by an unseen hand

Moving forward with very slow steps

I saw the sun break and extend to fill-

The reddish gold of its shining fingers

Through the breadth of the greenish gray

Nature  does rarely   encroach

Within my careworn and busy mind

Yet on this pale, mist-less morn

I felt some thrill, however slight it be

The flood of light now swiftly began

To descend in fast glistening sheets

Falling with a noise so deeply silent

That one only listened with the ears of mind

I must have stood still for quite a while

Looking at this  surreal scene

Was I  musing all that time, whether

This was what we were here for…….?

  1. you are so right.. as always, the words with which we play in our mind do lure our thoughts in their direction.. or do the other way round, push us away from their direction.

    • The idea was to make words non productive as a set of images and stress the aural rather than the specular.

      I am glad that you agree with it.
