A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



So you thought you could pull
Them strings, and be unnoticed?

Ah me! How I wished I could see you.
Even when the much longed for
Grey-ness quite overcame
Both you and I.

Secretly, secretively
You drew that grey-ness in
Stealthy as you please
When it then shimmered down

Quite quite cooling me.
And then, when you could not quite
Keep up the Act,

You let those veils loose.
Wispy, tendril-soft,
They curled around, then

For you to shine in all your glory.

Quite undone, was I.
For, your beauty, it sneaked up on me.

And your envy, of me cherishing the grey-
Quite did you in, didn’t it?

Undone, to each other, are we.

The muse, this day, is a longed for shower of rain, and the full moon that played dead, till the shower was done 😀

  1. A poem of hide-and-seek
    When a moon reached it’s peak
    Grey dispersed
    Brilliance burst
    And a poetess penned sheer chic!

  2. A beautiful poem, Ma’am. 🙂 Something which paints a beautiful word-picture. I could see it in my mind’s eye– the clouds shrouding the moon, the downpour, and then the moon bursting forth in all its glory! With the clouds drifting away in “wisps and tendrils” as you described. 🙂

  3. Until I read the muse , I was thinking in my mind’s eye of a damsel with long dark hair covering her beautiful face bathing in a waterfall.. :D. But then it all made sense..

  4. People think that holding back is control,
    but to your health it takes a toll
    Just give in and let the tears roll
    and you’ll notice that it cleanses your soul.
    My take on your observation:)
