any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
smiles...what a cool analogy/metaphor...the rivulet in the stream...the long pilgrimage together...and it is a beautiful thing too the devotion to that direction...
I like the way you have described your life journey, Sumana....flowing toward an unknown infinity, branching out at different times....and always there is hope. Nice.
I love the feeling of a life well-lived, despite some inevitable hardships, as well as the idea of a connection with the divine. "I have seen the sunrise ? The moonlit silver streams ? And also a Pole Star' - great and beautiful use of the celestial bodies!
Self as a stream or river is a good metaphor for life I think. And we do wind so many directions and places always heading for infinity. Your poem made me think about the infinity we flow towards. Food for thought for me.
Wordless... Brilliantly expressed...Loved these lines : "Let the dark sky twinkleWith the hope"Hope - The key to life!
Brilliant! So vibrant and joyful!!
a lovely ode to self, i'm there with you in the flock Sumanahave a nice Wednesdaymuch love...
A lyrical poem of life flowing through our veins each one of us connected to the other.
magical words that sing like a psalm of knowledge, this is a real emotional, image filled journey.
Sumana,A wonderfully painted image of a life journey, with its ups and downs, through your poetic words. The natural way, via the elements of life...Eileen
My Hope is built on nothing less. Lovely words, Sumana!
Superb. Wonderfully worded, Sumana.
Beautiful lines...what better way than to have a flowing life!
You've captured life's journey well.
What a beautiful poem this is! I especially love how it builds to its closing, from "I’ve loved this lifeIn this long pilgrimageI have seen the sunriseThe moonlit silver streamsAnd also a Pole StarMy wavy notes dreamOf never losing the way."
This is an inspired write, Sumana. I love the way you define who you are by integrating little touchstones of physical surroundings you have passed through with a dreamy, transcendent narrative. Really exquisite.
brilliant composition, giving a message of positiveness necessary in today's lifeIdentity
I think this has become one of my favorite poems by you. I love the words you've chosen to describe your journey.
Beautifully written, I could almost imagine your life. Just loved it, Sumana!
I like your extended metaphor, Sumana and the lovely word pictures you have included in this poem. I enjoyed reading it.
Wow....this is so beautiful...!!!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
