ANJALI SINHA


* THE SHORE OF LOVE **


I swam
in ocean of difficulties
infested by the heartless
sharks of hate
and repugnant reptiles
of social norms

The mountainous waves
of taunts chided me
the twirling
twisters of taboo
threatened me
The undersea
volcano of criticism
gnawed my very soul

But,
I steadied
my wavering ship of will
The sun of hope
was beckoning
me at horizon
Gasping,
I, clasped
the reflected sunrays
with both hands
like a summer-dried fountain
awaits those raindrops
just to remain afloat,
I burnt
my last dropp of
blood to
keep my body engine breathing.

At last,
the stubborn
fate succumbed
and genuflected
to my immobile will
Ah, I reached
the shore of love
the divine love

    Anjali,
    Thank God, your love has found the shore,
    My love knows no satiety, new dimensions explores.

    A very thoughtful and soul searching write... The paths of true love are always full of hardships and when you reach closer after overcoming a series of constraints, u really know the true meaning of love... And rare souls can know that... You are one resplendent star among those rare souls... (Report) Reply

    the reflected sunrays
    with both hands
    like a summer-dried fountain
    awaits those raindrops......................
    rain yet sizzles even over dry hills of summer
    as the gleams of grace inevitable redounds to love
    the utumn is very ahead by the season
    nothing is yet mystical as spring comes in its own way.............quite evocative write passion when haunted by the grill of wavering storm in the oceans of clouds by inevitability, while trudging across onshore, yet of unique style of expression,10++++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
