A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



The storm tossed leaves
on those trees
so reflect my inner turmoil.

Bits of hope
Shreds of despair;
warring and joining.
Joy and sorrow too,
those inevitable companions
undeniable rivals
for life’s affections…

Churning in the sea of life.

The clouds must
break someday
And the wind cannot
blow forever.

Maybe, just maybe
the sun will shine
again, someday soon….

Just for me??

  5. Wow! ’92. I was three…The clouds mustbreak somedayAnd the wind cannotblow forever.Descriptive as ever! Stormy, shaky, fighting hope. Frankly, the pictures interleaved produce their own anticlimatic effect, intended or not. Boy, am I glad to be back here reading. Exams are such hell.

  8. those inevitable companionsandundeniable rivalsfor life’s affections…Churning in the sea of life.The blend of nature and ups and downs of life is so so beautiful and wholesome here, that the poem brings in a breath of fresh air after a pleasant storm. Missed reading from you, was missing poetry too. Storm settles it in. 🙂
