As I Lose Myself

Rating: 5.0
With fanciful thoughts swarming like locusts,
When my mind runs bizarre
I look for a quiet spot
To sit and jot them down
On the sheet of paper I hold
Not bothering if they ring or rhyme

At times like gurgling streams
So noisy, they flow
Or like dew drops, gently moistening the grass
They come and quietly settle on the white surface.
Unable to be imprisoned
Within the structured frame of a song,
My thoughts, at times, take wings and fly.
Like Aladdin's magic carpet
They carry me along to lands unknown
And regions never travelled!
As we fly, we watch from above
The magic tapestry of sculptured rocks
Green arcades and silvery streams
And lose in the beauty of
This spinning globe, so amazing to view
The ride being so pleasant, soon the Elements
Dissolve and time runs out
I even forget, I do exist

Ascending higher and higher
With a rare lightness of being
On wings so weightless
The world of truth fades completely out
Until like a thistledown
So weightless I float along with clouds
Propelled by the buoyancy of the air

Looking from those alien shores
At times I catch a glimpse of Heaven,
Beyond the far rims of the horizon
Then my soul leaps in such exquisite rapture
And my unuttered thoughts burst into a song!

Looking from those alien shores At times I catch a glimpse of Heaven, Beyond the far rims of the horizon Then my soul leaps in such exquisite rapture And my unuttered thoughts burst into a song! The thoughts that couldn't be uttered when burst in a poem, and that too a poem by Valsa, is something really amazing.

the words of a true poetess. Your first stanza is the story of a true poetess. When in the quiet time a mind seeks a release from its thoughts. That is when the poet begins to write. lovely work

The first verse, highly tactile, progressively, through imagination and vision, expands the poem, always artfully crafted, simply - soars!

Soaring has so long been the dream of humanity that here we are reminded that it remains a physical and spiritual desire written with great imagination and grace.
