Ancient love

09 Oct

I groped through cluttered lanes
Dark and dismal
I couldn’t rally
Around or be calm or stall
My claustrophobia and fears.

I peeped through window panes
I stumbled and fell
Stuck in the blind alley
Where I could see vermin crawl;
There was no stopping my tears.

Was this the hell they spoke of?
The fire and torment
That took over the mind?
The obvious consequences
Of it’s own disarray?

Exit was close enough
But I had ignorantly spent
A lifetime to find
The signposts with directions
That would show me the way.

Now beyond the past
Out of the murky bylanes
Of ego and desire
I rest my heart and feet
I am one with the throng

The valley is green and vast
I feel lie a child again
I fill my lungs with air
My life a fluttering sheet
Of Life’s all pervading song.

Like lamps being lit at dusk
Like homing birds in the sky
Like a stroll in the woods
Like a rivulet flowing by.
Like a patch of wildflowers
Swaying in the breeze
Like a lonely rustic path
Winding through the trees.
Like raindrops falling
On fields rich with grain
Like a nightbird sharing
It’s silent , secret pain.
Like a thirsty soul yearning
For a few drops
Like heartbeats slowing
Till they finally stop

    Love the way it tapers to a lull. Beautiful writing. It moves past words and images and touches strings that never existed before

    Those lines are beautiful, Nadira. “Like a nightbird sharing
    It’s silent , secret pain.” caught me in the heart.

    Both poetry and song pierce the heart … life with it’s angst against the backdrop of beauty and hope. Lovely! Lovely! Well done, Nadira, and thank you for including the video.

    This is an intensive descriptive piece Nadira and life on Earth for some I am sure can feel like Hell….

    Ioved the Music you have shared with this poem, and I have recently been walking along my own rustic path out in nature more as I too have thirsted for that connection to peace as I blend with Mother Nature’s ancient Love….

    Peace and Love my friend

      Nothing like working with Mother Earth . Very comforting . It can actually drive away all the angst, isn’t it? Lots of love to you too Sue.:-)
