The World Beyond

In the endless void inside me,

There is an ocean of tears

And a storm of sighs

Which carries unexpressed pain –

Borrowed as well as my own ........

There is a furnace of fury,

The fire inside which,

Catalyzed by the soaring storm

Can burn the whole world

If set free ......

And there is an active volcano of memories

In a desert of harsh realities,

Beyond which is my land of Rainbows –

Full of Love and Life.

- Vanita Thakkar (23.05.2003)

This is another poem that is relevant to the word prompt on "Rainbows" given by our dear friend, a wonderful writer and poetess, Brenda Arledge ....
