SERENITY (A Gogyohka)

A cloudy frothy wake of Saffron streams
as you majestically descend
My heart swells as your beauty transcends
all petty complaints and smallness
and Love fills all emptyness

Gogyohka is a 5-line Japanese poem. I was inspired to write it after learning about it on Staci’s wonderful blog. Check it out at http://stacilys.wordpress.com/2014/10/12/music-of-my-heart-gogyohka/

    Dear Anjali,

    I very much like this picture. Thank you for sharing it.

    So many feelings arise, and settle, while I sit here gazing at it. Serenity is here.

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • Dear Robert, I am so glad you liked this picture and that it has helped ‘settle’ your feelings. I too felt like that when I took that picture and it helps me be calm whenever I look at it….
