It’s been a while

14 Apr

It’s been a while
Since I scooped
A fistful of flowers
From the meadows green.

It’s been a while
Since I watched a bird
Hover over a branch
To perch and preen.

It’s been a while
Since I walked bare-feet
O’er the tingling grass
Wet with the dew of dawn

It’s been a while
Since I stole a song
From the hum of the breeze
And the sounds of morn.

It’s been a while
Since I stood in the shade
To squint at the sun
Through the fluttering leaves

It’s been a while
Since I stretched my hand
To catch the rain
Falling from the eaves.

It’s been a while
Since I slowed down
Without any need
For my hours to fill.

It’s been a while
Since the silence seeped
Through my senses
And my thoughts stood still.

    I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

      Thank you so much Davis.I’ve been lazy around here lately. May be i should copy -paste the stuff that I’ve scribbled down from time to time over the past few weeks. Do stop by again.

      Thank you Shakti. I did come across your comments too on Bela’s page and was planning to visit you anyway.:-) Thanks for your invite. I love it here in the blogosphere ,where we come across so many who see the world with the same eyes . Unfortunately, sometimes its amny, many days before one gets to really sit down and surf and read with leisure and add your comments . Not for lack of intention, though:-) Thanks again.

    Thanks to these lovely lines you wrote that I am well in time reminded of all the wonderful things around me that I was missing. This poem brought it all to notice.
    Will attend to each of these one by one starting today itself. May be a walk on the tingling grass shall be the first of these!

    Congrats for a fascinating effort!

      You’re too kind Jainsaab. But I’ll accept your compliments with all due humility. Who doesn’t like being told that what one writes sounds pleasing to the reader? Respects:-)

    It’s been a while
    Due to years and age
    That I have been able to see
    What I write on the comments page
    And what I have been able to read.

    loved your poem
    so full of thought
    Of wonderous dreams come true
    So I hope that today will be the day
    That you see everything with eyes a new…… lots of love
