My Loneliness - Poem by Seema Jayaraman

A Stillness so vast so somber
like a Marigold shrub in
its autumn shrug
All the splendor and laughter
of the bygone years
visions of carefree gay dancing
seen through bleary cataract eyes

This is mourning for that
one glorious ride
suspended in a vacuum our time
enshrined in this moaning heart
a small capsule of your smile
The grey fog today seeks to hide
the radiance of bygone times
©Seema Jayaraman, Mumbai (my older undated creation maybe 1990?)

    Bygone days bring visions of carefree life. Now when a kind of loneliness plagues you, you long for such a joyous ride once more in life.....(I am at a loss to get what you really mean...... this is what I assume) (Report) Reply

    You are right, its the yearning to revisit that small capsule of time to see that smile carried in a vaccum in the heart

    I think these verse's are Seema declaring a thorough Comprehension of her hearts study on Empathy and Compassion of Her Immediate eLders within her family of whom have showed her the purest and most True Love she has ever Known in all her days. a Love Comparable only to the Love That otherwise Only Comes From the many Hearts of God.

    Loneliness speaks through expression of emotion and dates back to the year 1990. Really very interesting to read such an amazing poem which is well versed. Vision with dancing eyes holds splendor and laughter both here and the imagery speaks about strong message. A thoughtful and nice sharing....10 (Report) Reply
