Oru chinna poem…oru chinna post



Spread her wings
far and wide;
Flap them to and fro,

from side to side.
A feather, a bubble,

a wish, a trinket
All things dear to her,

yet so fragile!
Memories of broken dreams

fill her in,
As she walks the path,

the forbidden path.

‘Hey, you’, whispers

the voice of her soul
Dare she heed any,

lest her destiny deny her role,
She hastens on the path –

the call from the wild
The Devil’s more powerful

than her disheartened own.
She steps in tiptoe,

as quiet as her shadow
Her ignorance divine,

her mind aglow

Like the wonderland

through a rabbit-hole,
Seeks yet another

Alice of its own
The call was enchanting,

the promise so soothing
The Lord, her shepherd

tends to her soul
Alas the Devil tempts her

to the path unknown
O dear child, her fear is

but not a word spoken.

The Devil, the fantasy,

the mirage the sands have seen
Speak of a world through

the looking-glass
A world manifested

full of promises galore
For what seems real may not be and

what isn’t may seem so!
Yet again, her faith is shattered,

her dream broken
Yet another path seeks her,

seeks the gossamer of her dreams!

Senorita said...

Hey Vin this is cool... all I can say is ...Dream on Dreamer and keep writing you are a star :)

amaii said...

Wow! You can really write well...keep writing! Its wonderful

Just a thought on your poem...the accomplishment of every dream is not the goal, but the journey towards the goal itself.
Enjoy the journey, that experience itself is about living which the souls desires.
I am saying this becoz in your poem 'her faith is shattered, her dreams are broken' it sounded like she is also shattered.
So i am saying inspite of all this 'she must bring in the drive and move on.
And hey...you go on writing:-)

Vin said...

Thanks Amaii,
my thought on ur thoughts:
though 'memories of broken dreams fill her in', she still ventures towards a new path, a new dream with unknown risk factors!

in the process of 'bringing in the drive to move on', she writes!! she will continue on newer paths as they too seek her the same...

She hasn't n will never be shattered.. This is a promise she has made to Herself.

Life is but a journey which takes different paths. The first time we journey down the path, everything will be dark and unknown, but if we travel again the unknown becomes known and dark becomes light. Your thoughts are silently provoking. Keep going.

Vin said...
