The Song Of Life

daybreak
Sue Vincent’s #Writephoto

Wrapped in a dark cloud
Chained but free
Suffocated yet breathing
They join everyday charade

Reveling in the celebrations
The song of life gets louder
Than expectations
Today is their special day!

Hues of dawn smile
But demons of time linger
Fraught with feral fog
Scraping at her diffidence

Would the cloud open?
Would she soak in the grandeur?
Would she breathe at will?
Living in the cauldron of questions!

  1. Balroop, this I find to be a very strong and serious poem. Beautifully written.
    The lines : ” Suffocated yet breathing
    They join everyday charade”
    I find almost haunting.

    1. Thank you Annika. I think everyone comes across such a dilemma once in a while, some are wise enough to choose the right direction and some get stuck at the crossroads! Life is strange!

  2. A very interesting poem, Balroop. Powerful words representing the instability of life. At times we are living a charade, just putting one foot in front of the other. I keep going back to the poem and the photo. The photo is perfect for the poem. Or, is the poem perfect for the photo?

  3. Beautiful sunset. The poem is melancholic and brooding, encapsulating how many see life……

    “……….Would the cloud open?
    Would she soak in the grandeur?
    Would she breathe at will?
    Living in the cauldron of questions!……..”

    Ah-mazing!
