Amme Narayana

In the darkness of the dawn
The diety stood beautiful
Tears rolled down on to old rough cheeks
Some Shiney kohl eyes were red rimmed

The strength of prayer
The majestic aura of her idol
Filled energy onto the drained mind
Sowing seeds of hope
On to tired barren hearts

The aroma of jasmine
the fragrance of camphor and incense
The soft soothing rays of rising sun
The devotees reveled in the divinity,
the serenity and the purity
of her shimmering face and divine eyes
Its pretty odd !How time turns itself upside down, head over heels making one meet the same angst which one dusted off ones soul long back. But then this is why life is life and time is mysterious, it can make you laugh, cry, yearn , love and hate from the core.

While traveling through lanes of time there have been times like this when I wanted to stretch out far ahead and reach out for those years , may be , stored somewhere in the pages of future which will spill out feathers of white peace and flowers of yellow happiness all around.
Rushing out and running through this time phase I just want to erase out the unsoulful sands below my feet and find a way out from this existence, if I look harder I would find a small window opening on to the blank horizon .. may be !!!

Standing amidst a lush green paddy field under a bright blue sky I wish I could freeze in time forever.. forever….
