The Valley I Love

Valley of Flowers3(1)

Looking for sounds of happiness
I reached the valley of flowers.

Sitting silently in a corner,
I watched…

A butterfly, a bird, a bee
Humming, hovering, soaring…

Dissatisfied, returning to each flower
Hundreds of times,

Perching and flying…
Could you call this love?

I wondered what made the valley
So serene, so scenic!

Loving little flowers…so colorful
So deep, so bright and enchanting,

They mesmerized butterflies and bees
Human eyes too linger on them.

Rapt and awestruck, I watched
The valley of blissful ecstasy!

Happiness, love, serenity
The valley overflowed…

I know happiness lies in our heart
We just have to nurture it.

The blossoms of beauty and faith
A steady stream of goodness…

Brushes aside the thistles
Of everyday strife.

  1. Hi Balroop,

    So beautiful….just like the picture 🙂

    Reminds me of the tenure I had with my Dad years ago to the hills, and experienced most of what you’ve written – simply out of the world.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Happy weekend 🙂

    1. Hi Harleena,

      Thanks for liking the poem and the picture. It was written a long time ago, when I had visited this Valley, also called the Valley of Gods…its mesmerising beauty allures even those who don’t want to take a pilgrimage 🙂
      Its charm is equivalent to what Wordsworth had expressed in his famous poem ‘The Daffodils’…’they flash upon the inward eye’…..!

      You too have a blessed weekend!

  2. Balroop, How wonderful to see your poetry here! A lovely surprise! I think that you remind us about the beauty that exists, if only we are open to seeing it 🙂 Thank you and I hope your weekend is going well!

  3. “Happiness, love, serenity. The valley overflowed…” This is an absolutely wonderful poem as a prelude for Christmas and family being together, Balroop 🙂

    A student to whom you taught in the school 🙂
