    ************************
    He came fluttering to me
    Sucking my nectar
    Satiating his appetite
    When I was a beautiful flower

    Soon with age
    I started wilting
    My petals started shrinking
    I no longer had nectar
    But I waited and waited for him...

    I guess he found another prey
    Another beautiful flower to relish
    After all it's just a pastime for him

    I thought that love would last forever.....
    I was wrong.

    **********************************

    Her eyes look like unheard stories
    As I gaze into them
    Brilliant blue eyes
    Exuding an enigmatic aura
    That of a scarred soul
    Who has witnessed
    Unimaginable hurdles
    But filled with steel grit
    Who has braved the
    Chaotic storms in her life
    And emerged strong
    An embodiment of a
    Strong woman!

    Her eyes meet mine
    For a fraction of a second
    Before she walks away
    Into the distance
    Lost in thought
    Probably ruminating on
    The mysteries of life!

    Her mere gaze was enough...
    I am smitten by those
    Beautiful mysterious eyes
    convinced she is my soulmate.
    Hopefully our paths will cross
    Sometime in the distant future
    If that's destined!

    We dream of immortality
    But alas, what are we?
    Just a speck in the multitude of this universe!

    ********************************

    As the snow melts
    She arrives
    Draping the earth in
    Her colourful robes
    An embodiment of joy
    Flowers bloom and dance
    To her vibrant rhythm
    Her child like antics
    Engulfing sorrow in totality!

    Her warmth slowly spreads
    Making way for the
    Radiant summer exuding affection
    Inviting butterflies to exhibit
    Its exotic dance moves,
    Melodious chirping of birds
    And buzzing of bees
    A musical saga - as she matures
    Into a teenager and then a young adult!

    As she matures further
    She becomes solemn
    Shedding her vibrant attire
    To a more sombre one
    Adorning shabby yellow robes
    She enters into contemplation
    Weeding out all negativities
    Within her in the form of
    Shedding leaves!

    She slowly enters into
    Senescence, her attire
    Changing to a white ensemble
    Wise, saintly and peaceful
    She falls down as snowflakes
    Bringing joy to her children
    Like a doting grandma
    Before melting into oblivion!

    Thank you so much for the WN repost! ❤ @writersnetwork
    Thank you so much for POD!!!! This was totally unexpected! @miraquill

    ************************************
    She was a lovely
    Vast expanse of blue
    draping Mother Earth
    with her magical hues
    Her pristine waters
    Reflecting the skies overhead
    Providing the ideal ambience
    For the romantic soul!

    Her brother, the chivalrous sun
    Visits her from dawn till dusk
    His sunrays exuding warmth
    Protecting her from
    All sorts of danger!

    Her lover, the mysterious moon
    Visits her silently every night
    Ripples of passion
    Putting her soul on fire
    In the form of raging waves!

    Her womb is bedecked with
    Colorful corals, reef
    Jellyfish, starfish and
    Other amazing flora and fauna
    Giving birth to an amazing
    Treasure trove nurtured by her,
    The loving compassionate mother!

    She is the embodiment
    Of a strong woman
    Precariously balancing
    All her roles in society
    Implementing them with
    Absolute perfection.

    Poems don't alter reality, they provide a glimpse of life in its true colours through a metaphoric frame.

    Beauty is upon you
    O lady behind the veil
    Obscuring a charred face
    With a charismatic smile
    And a gentle heart!

    Beauty is upon you
    O lady behind the veil
    With beautiful eyes
    Naive yet mysterious
    Conveying the agonies
    of your wounded soul!

    Beauty is upon you
    O lady behind the veil
    Your fragile face masks
    Your sheer grit to
    Bounce back from adversities!

    Beauty is upon you
    O lady behind the veil
    Who has silently defeated
    Lust filled delinquents
    Who believe beauty is just external!

    Beauty is upon you
    O lady behind the veil
    Who has illustrated to
    The world that true beauty
    Is strength of character
    which can't be burnt down by acid!

    Beauty in melancholy

    There's beauty in melancholy
    Like the cold gloomy dawn
    Which condenses negativities
    As dewdrops on leaves
    Resplendently sparkling like
    Pearls on a string
    Mesmerizing the soul!

    There's beauty in melancholy
    Like the overcast rainy days
    Relieving its burdens
    In the form of a terrific downpour
    Plummeting down as
    Dewdrops from above
    Adorning the grey sky!

    There's beauty in melancholy
    Like the mysterious poet
    Whose ideas sparkle like
    Dewdrops on paper adorned with
    Rhymes and rhythms
    Similes and metaphors
    Decorating the literary world!

    There's beauty in melancholy
    Like the despondent soul
    Whose tears sparkle like
    Dewdrops on skin
    Eradicating pent up
    Sorrows and miseries
    Thus healing the
    Soul from within!

    ***********************************************
    A quiet inconspicuous being at dawn
    To an excited bubbly being at dusk
    Who am I?

    Worshipping time at dawn
    Abiding by every dictate of society
    To a truant soul at dusk
    Soaked in the never ending
    Battles of Navarone in my mind
    Entertaining my insomniac soul
    Does this make me
    A vagabond or a disciplined soul?

    An uptight being in society
    With masked emotions
    To a creative soul at dusk
    Pouring my emotions
    In the form of proses and melodies
    Does this make me
    An artistic or a melancholic soul?

    A neutral, peaceful soul at dawn
    Diplomatic by nature
    To ravaging opinions at dusk
    Debating world affairs
    In the tiny space of my mind
    Does this make me
    A chaotic or a peace loving soul?

    It's always been a ropewalk
    Balancing precariously all the time
    'Lest I fall to either side
    And be chastised by society
    For being an original
    Where fake is always valued...
    Its dawn again and here I go
    Playing the balancing game as usual
    Striving to be a perfectly imperfect soul!!

    2 sijos with the same theme
    Sijo 1 has syllable scheme 15:15:15
    Sijo 2 has syllable scheme 15:16:16

    A purely imaginative piece, hope this makes sense!

    Deep in slumber I access the attic of my mind clouded
    With cobwebs of emotions masking a cauldron of repressed
    Unpleasant memories neatly packed in caskets of gory!

    Unearthing them in slumber, I get startled as they lash out
    Violently in a slew of vivid photos of my haunting past.....
    Locking them out, I wake up screaming- all a forgotten past now!
