The Green shoots out

And stretches towards life

As the slumbering,

Careful earth cups it close

To its heart with unspoken



Life fountains out

In a joyous gush as

The greys merge into blues

And the wisps of white

Float across

and sometimes descend

hugging the frozen earth

warming it in joyous



How perfect the


How beautiful the


I bow to the sublime

Dance of eternity

Continued in infinity

In life’s eternal

    Dear Anjali,

    I very much like this poem!

    It brings alive, in my bones, the movement of nature, the movement of spring, the movement of the stars. Somehow, through your art, you have enlivened the awareness of *aliveness*!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you :).

    All good wishes,

  5. Beautifully penned down.


  6. Truly beautiful…Reminds me of Wordsworth’s “There’s joy in the mountains; / There’s life in the fountains; / Small clouds are sailing, / Blue sky prevailing; / The rain is over and gone! “
