Stilling Journey

The smell of rain has dawned upon,

The flowers are ready to blossom yon,

Time has stilled on in a somber foregone,

The break of dawn is cracking into morn.


Light spreads on our petals as we glow,

Resonating with nature as we go with the flow,

A tranquil blessing while we start to grow,

And breathe life into the seeds we sow.


We stop our journey on the ladder of success,

And observe the veil of what we possess,

Caressing the art that we’ve carried to assess,

Musing upon what we cannot access.


An artist would look at his stark contrast,

Stalling creation as he takes a repast,

Thinking about the world he’s wants to go past,

In a ship driven by his creative mast.


Nature’s beats go on as before,

A pause is what we would like to have more,

To dream of casts and carve them to store,

Fulfilling our dreams as we head to the shore.

  10. Oh… so beautifully put, V!! We dream of something, and work our way towards that dream.. but often, in the process, we forget to pause and marvel at our journey thus far…
    If we took more of those pauses, we will be appreciate ourselves and our lives much better…

    “In a ship driven by his creative mast.” — I particularly liked this line a lot, my friend.. to me, it was the perfect description of a well-crafted life many of us try to live..

    A really lovely and thought provoking one shot!

  24. Beautiful poem with great rhyming and flow…..

  25. excellent flowing verses, with a lots of references to nature. my feeling about this poem is that the poet in a moment of creative blank page, ponders his options. how he is going to move forward, how can he access the next step in the ladder of progression. but being an artist its in his nature the talent and ability to bend and break shackles in name of art. (he jumps on board the ship, driven by his creativity)
    beautiful poem, thanks for sharing this in the poets united poetry pantry. otherwise i would have missed a great read.
