1) My inspiration to write poetry stems from various sources. This time, this beautiful salad art created by a creative friend provided the dose of inspiration. Loved the idea, choice of colors and the commitment.
I woke up to another day,
The golden rays shimmering with life,
Nature casting her resplendence on me,
The wealth of the universe exuberant-
Above floated in harmony
Pregnant clouds - sailing smooth
Lazing around in the blue vastness
Gazing at the beauty below!
Swaying luminescence of greens
Orangish embers lighting up
Serene whites resplendent
Prosperous yellows shining bright!
I blinked again at the beautiful sight
Only to realize this was a touch of creativity
Every pixel chiseled with beauty
The artist was at her best again!
2) I penned this inspired during a trek at Zurich astounded by the beauty of this colorful tree. Nature's lap can be soothing to the soul. A lesson from a fun filled, relaxing trip amidst the soul of the hills.
The wind knows no prejudice
As it caresses the mountains and valleys alike
With equanimity embossed within
Travelling at its own pace.
The silvery spring knows no bias
Gurgling with joy, laughing at its environs
With equal measure- day or night notwithstanding
Melody nestled in its core.
The towering trees know no favorites
Splashing serenity till the horizon
Rocks and boulders, soil and water not hampering
The inherent essence of growth.
Amused, I turned back, the web of judgements spreading its leash across mankind.
Walked I, shredding through the meshes of opinions
The spirit of unconditional love lit within.
