~::~ Ripples of Life ~::~


After a long long time, yes seems like I could squeeze in an awful lot of fairytales in the meantime, I have returned back to my Blog.

Its depressing to see that I – who once wrote 3-4 poems a day, am barely able to write 1 in 3-4 months.

I wonder if its Age catching up or is it just a mental block!!

Nonetheless I hope and pray I get some more creative urges to pen down more poems 😦

While for now I leave you with this freeverse πŸ™‚

~::~ Ripples of Life Β ~::~Β 

Image

Tangerine hued skies, silent zephyr

O’er the icy cool waters, a lonely boat stirs

As he set off baiting fish for a living

Daily chore he must do unfailing Β Β 

Β 

The lake seems calm but inner turmoil persists

The ache on his back which he tries to resist

A trickle of sweat adorns his brows

Yet everyday he must be on his toes

Β 

Incessant rowing makes his elbows creak

Creases of skin adorn his wheatish frail physique

Mellowed down eyes, with darkness of hell

Of years gone by, he himself couldn’t tell

Β 

A meagre few he gathered after a hard day’s toil

Tomorrow he shall return without as much a roil

A nightingale croons her sweet song at a distance

He’s heard them & seen a million setting suns

Β 

Time to wrap up & leave for the warmth of his home

He sauntered back as the sky turned monochrome

A simple dinner, diet of subsistence

Yet he slept with content of heavenly existence
