Where Lies True Bliss? - Poem by Valsa George

Where encased is the secret of bliss
Is it encoded in any talisman abstruse?
Does it linger unseen on the face of angelic babes
Who, with smiles and laughter create such heavenly vibes?

Can it be in the eyes of charming belles
Who hold the world under their mesmerizing spells?
Or is it in the heroic deeds of valiant men
Who, on the face of death, undaunted remain?

Can we behold it in the brilliance of the rising sun
Or in the serene calm of the misty twilight dawn?
Does bliss hover on the banks of streaming brooks
Or on the heights of snow clad mountain peaks

Can it be with fair Venus- Queen of Love
Or in the arrows speeding from amorous Cupid's bow
Does it glisten in the silvery beams of the shining moon
Or in the setting sun's embers of amber and maroon

Can it be somewhere in heavens so high
Beneath the fluffy clouds quietly gliding neigh
Can sweet Paradise be the seat of bliss
Where seraphs sing, angels dance and nothing is amiss

Nay, it surely resides not in worlds beyond
But here on Earth, in the union of hearts with love abound.

    Bliss is something every one is after. But, most wander about not knowing exactly where it could be found. Some endeavor to possess it through materials, while others think bliss is where power is. Only a few realize that bliss has its ties with spirituality, which is nourished and cared within blissful hearts. Its a wonderful theme for a poem and at the same time, I like the excellent way it is crafted. Congrats for the very deserving positioning. X (Report) Reply

    Thank you so much sir for your great observations on my poem....! I feel humbled!

  • Glen Kappy (7/12/2017 9:57:00 AM)


    valsa,

    i felt excitement seeing your name connected with the poem of the day. and the title was sure to attract the likes of me.

    these two lines strike me as perfect-

    Does it glisten in the silvery beams of the shining moon
    Or in the setting sun's embers of amber and maroon

    on your title question my first thought goes to my wife and what i experience with her. but then i think, as with the word happiness, what does it mean? is it contentment? does it refer to sensual experience only? do we confine it to certain spiritual experiences? all of these? the answers will be different depending on one's point of view.

    without question, as you conclude, there is bliss in the union of hearts, and i would add- which perhaps you intend but leave unspoken- hearts broken and softened, vulnerable and trusting.

    thank you for giving us something noble and worthy to think on- as you usually do.

    appreciatively,

    glen

    Dear Valsa, there are poets who only ask questions in their poems and are not able to give any answers. You GIVE the answer after many variants of thoughts and it is true, clever and confident. Thank you! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Where lies the true bliss of life
    is it I am looking for all around
    Is it in the paradise that bound
    Yes, it was just within my reach
    But I could not find!
