Soaring eagle

Soaring eagle

Lipped Eloquence

The day I tasted the eloquence of words,

I was mesmerised by the ambience of their character.

Soaring, like an eagle on silvery wings,

I saw them dancing in the firmament, their smiles

And laughter, filling the air with sweetest joy.

At nights, I kiss the lapis lazuli, of an enchanting moonlight;

Spring heralds sunrise, caressing the beauty of my dreams.

Daybreak summons the sweet lamp of my Heart,

Scribbling verses to the sublimity of Love.

King David’s psalms whispers softly, the melody

Of the sparrow in my core; my Spirit melts,

Bathing in the beatitudes of the one called Christ.

My tongue becomes an artiste, painting love-songs to my lips,

Whose wine echoes, the drunken sweetness of the soul.

Mother's Sacrifice

Naked and alone in this field of struggle,

They ascend on the wings of forbearance and grit.

Their sweet concern and empathy,

Flies on the septer’d wings of excellence.

Burning their souls on wounded knees,

They pay homage at the feet of sacrifice.

Love responds with Her benevolent mercy,

Removing the veil of loneliness from within.

Come! Sweet Deliverer, Come!

Take them to the crest of wondrous stars.

Their diligence is naught but dauntless courage –

A sweet selflessness for their beloved ones.

Fill them with the unfailing Peace of Heaven,

Cascade their souls, with the red carpet of everlasting Bliss.
