Poetry: A Bird with Gossamer Wings!

Reading Time: 1 minute

Sunita pens a verse about poetry, which she likens to a bird, in .

Poetry is my haven,

My resting place,

My den to escape from the humdrum, the ordinary,

 

A beautiful bird with

Taking me to a sunlit garden of multi-hued blossoms;

Where the and sounds cannot distract me,

Cannot weaken me

 

Where the heart is like a balloon

Floating high in the sky,

Where my head is clear

like the turquoise waters of a silent stream –

where pebbles of all shapes and colours lie,

 

Where the star-spangled flag of the skies

Stretches endlessly,

Where the clouds dance to the music of the -

unheard by any,

 

Where the heady fragrance of the dewy jasmine,

Casts a silvery spell,

Where the carpet has no doors,

Boundless and limitless – it meanders

 

Where nurturing sleep is a bower, a cocoon –

Which rejuvenates and refreshes to create –

A better version of ‘Me’!
