    Rays jade as dusk yawns
    Sunset, last piece for this day
    Skies brushed from God's hand


    ~ the light from the sun has bid us good night, but how lucky are we, the encore is Moon and starlight ~

    Monochrome Visions

    When our hearts parted ways
    And our forever expired...

    I reminisced of how vibrantly our destiny was blooming
    Then a deluge of teardrops washed over the memories
    Cleansing them of all hues they remain just to haunt me
    Sometimes I still try to paint them with verse
    But for this poet, forever is my curse

    The bridge of life
    From birth to grave
    Is fraught with perilous
    Missteps of despair
    Trust the wrong person
    And plunge into
    The depths of regret
    We put our journey on hold
    Until we climb back up
    The mountain of hope
    Back on our way
    Many times we willingly fall
    In love with someone
    Soon to discover
    We never knew them at all
    These times at the bottom
    In the abyss of heartbreak
    Sometimes it takes years
    To scale back up
    That slippery slope of trust
    At a certain point in the bridge
    We are met with wisdom
    And that's when we finally
    Reflect back on the plummets
    And epiphany strikes
    That it was never the walk
    But the brave climbs of growth
    That carried us this far

    Although @lovenotes_from_carolyn and I are both on hiatus at the moment, of course we had to make sure we did a special piece for our birthday girl @jeelpatel


    Happy Birthday Jeel

    She sings like a lark
    And she pens like the pros
    Whenever she writes
    The beauty just flows

    She is wise though she's young
    Her future untold
    But it's looming before her
    So bright to behold

    Another year of verses
    Adding luster to her shine
    Another year of smiles
    Courtesy of, this little star of mine

    The stars of galaxy mirakee
    With love and joy are aligned
    To celebrate your special day
    Our sparkling orb, luminescence defined

    Poetry is...

    elevated senses

    verses are "scene"

    with artistic perception

    expressed through words,

    Healer

    To the kindest Healer, who
    has ever walked in human
    form, there's a virus swarm,
    we pray for your attention at
    once, show no mercy, be it's
    wrath of calamity, for it
    threatens your dearest
    Humanity

    Equation is I over E, intellect over emotion.

    An emotional response to a statement of ignorance

    Is an irrational defiance of your intellectual vigilance

    Implanting Daydreams

    Perhaps every grain of sand
    Would trade it's life so bland
    Exchanging Purgatory in an oyster shell
    All to emerge as a pearl angel

    A star shines for millennia
    Then explodes supernova
    Accepting its fate, to propagate
    Elements that fuse, new stars incarnate

    Many times a human beings life
    Is dedicated to their families delight
    Then when mortality visits
    Memories enshrine them as love, superlative

    Certain words inhabit coffins
    They're estranged, seldom used, abandoned
    Buried in the depths of old dictionaries
    Then reincarnate, glorified in verses of poetries

    Beaches, stars, this life of ours
    Implanting daydreams, in the minds we seed
