Hope is too Far…

The Artist


Just one cloud clamors to hold the rays of dawn, waking up sky from its dreams. More clouds gather to celebrate the brilliance of an artist who works diligently to create new designs each moment. Demon-eyed, with an open mouth, he came from an unknown land, too far to traverse. He seems to express unreasonable desires, swallowing the morning light, whispering colorful tunes to the sun.

He also carries a fistful of grime, thrown in exasperation, shows his indignation, unseen, unheard, unfathomed. The hope lies too far, colored with the arrogance of man who claims to have conquered all.

Today’s prose-poetry is inspired from Reena’s Xploration Challenge, which asks us to let the whole or phrases from the following line be our muse this week.
It came from somewhere too far to walk, from as far away as the most unreasonable desire, the most devastating hope.” by Sharmishtha Mohanty in Thirty two nights and dreams.

Thank you for the inspiration Reena.

#TankaTuesday #Syllabic #Poetry

Today’s poetry is inspired from Colleen’s poetry challenge, which gives the freedom to choose our own syllabic form but concentrate on a chakra color to feature in our poem. Please visit Word Craft Poetry to understand chakras. I chose tanka and violet color.

vernal violet
visual delight that jolts
royal touch that holds   
just one glance satiates me
even dew lingers to love

***

violet bells dance
tunes of  nature inspire
winds wane to watch them
beguile me in my backyard
scenario to cherish

***

Ah! The healing touch,
profound awareness moments
smear my soul with peace
to feel  mystical embrace
and the shift of perspective

I chose Violet color, which symbolizes creativity, wisdom, sensitivity and spirituality. It inspires, motivates, balances and uplifts. Thanks to Colleen for the inspiration to write syllabic poetry.

Thank you.

Unknown Ties

View from my patio

Pine tree twig nudges the other –
‘Look at the golden glow’
Wind chimes in to add its melody
Both swing with abandon.

Loaded with little pines
Both bask in the glory of twilight
I watch with delight
And feel connected.

The melodies of this tree
Change everyday – 
Soft in the morning breeze
It sings louder during the day.

Bound by unknown ties
I step out each time it changes its tune
My solidarity soars with each cadence
Our relationship gets deeper.

Intoxicated 
by nature’s nectar I thrive
Let me drink till dusk
kisses the sky and reminds you:
we are hypnotized by life

***

You took the sunshine;
alone I carve a new path
through the dark caverns
to gather tattered  remnants
of dreams and grim emotions

Thanks to Colleen Chesebro for Weekly Poetry Challenge. This week’s double tanka is inspired from Lisa Smith’s image.

My Creative Cave

Image from Pixaby

My creative cave
Is open from both sides
Starry nights spread their tresses
When sun wanders away.

My heart tingles with delight
When the glow of moon
Creates magic in my cave
My pen drapes around the light.

Emotions echo
To release the words
Oppressed by feral fears 
Creativity cedes her hold.

Till dawn breaks
Bringing dewy-damp whispers
And melody of flowers
A new song reverberates.

A song in synch with the surroundings
A song that soothes many hearts.
