Flowing Mist~



Treading through the half-lit forest
I stumble upon a drizzle of brilliance
       dancing indolently to the rhythms of the sun-beams
A lucent vertical wall grows-
knowing that no growing is death...
it's sensibilities tingle, riddle my nerves
Clear moments are short....  more mirrors form
...stand still for sometime, but dabble again
energizing every inch of the forest-floor-- I walk on
Silence enters, beyond the nooks, seeking its way
         And...my mind gently surrenders to a new calm
The sun dips....in slow watchful cycle
Green leaves peering out, shiver in twilight
 .. each leaf nurturing a sly dewdrop gives it all
Ah, every life needs a borrowed life to live...
               Fellowship wins .....
                                   Hands down!

  2. I feel as if I am accompanying you on your journey here, Panchali. I can definitely picture that lucent vertical wall. I have experienced something like this somewhere...wish now I could remember where. (Sigh) So true that clear moments are short and that no growing is death! Well penned throughout.
