'You are a hypocrite, you are false' – says he,
and I wonder where I would keep so much hatred,
for I have already filled every nook and corner
with honey colored hope!


'Your feelings are soiled mud' – says he,
and I worry what I would do with so much anger,
for I have learnt only to smile
a smile, that has a sunshine hue!


Last night
it rained behind my closed pane.
It kept raining
on the green grass
on the lively branches
on blossoming flowers.


In the morning
I kindled a sun ray,
cupped the golden morning in my palm
and planted a sapling in the mud.

I decide to nurse and nurture it.

How I have missed your writing!

Your words are like a soft summer
rain on a parched, thirsty garden...yearning, aching for saturation, that life may spring forth abundantly in the midst of your beautiful garden.

Your imagery always amazes me, Moon, and you add such distinct visualization to your poetry...and that, my dear friend, makes it such a pleasure to read.

As in the case of your phrase, "honey colored hope"...

"for I have already filled every nook and corner
with honey colored hope!"

Thanks for shining some light for One shots party

I can read 'pain' here in smiles in big bold letters....'cupped the golden morning in my palm'...I like the positivity in this thought too...Nice, short, simple, thought in poetic realms..beautiful!

Tulika Verma said...

You know Baishali, this poem says a lot not just about the character you created but also about the beauty and innocence of your soul. Lovely poem!

Brian Miller said...

smiles. that you take all the negative and make new life out of it...that is a beautiful thing...

This seems to be a companion piece for your June 15 post "Untitled". Both wonderful and revealing pieces of the strong writer you are. Both decisions well made.

"for I have already filled every nook and corner with honey colored hope! ... cupped the golden morning in my palm"

"when I open the east window
and the honey colored morning fills the room
like tea pouring smoothly into a cup,"

:-)

What a beautiful poem laced with sadness and then hope. Love it.

Rose said...

Celest! Radiance simply oozes out of this piece - keep smiling - love your writing!

Andy said...

Such a lovely poem.
There is indeed a twinge of sadness, but you manage to combat all the negativity with a positive attitude.
I love "I have already filled every nook and corner with honey colored hope!" and "smile a smile, that has a sunshine hue!"

Nicely done, Baishali!

C D,

Read all current posts. I feel so lucky to have got your link. Experience is beyond words. Loved one on Earth. Also feel tempted to ask for those prawns. I hope to be regular but may be with little gaps.

Take care

Old Raven said...

Your words are always filled with beauty. They are words to look at ... to view again and again. You are of course right about forgiveness. It is everything.

janice kelly said...

your poem brings to life 'everything' i ever dreamed life could be...

your writing is everything life can be from the depths of a poet with a heart big enough to replenish all the hearts gone astray...

beautiful...

thank you for sharing your gift...

sincerely,

mindlovemisery said...

While certainly there's pain, I love the sense of warmth and hope, the positive radiance

poetryroad said...

I really liked this because no matter how harsh he was she kept her hopes and dreams in tact! She didn't let him bring her down. Nice!

Jingle said...

inventive and powerful.
Happy Rally.

A wonderful poem that to me speaks of turning away from the hurt toward the beauty. I believe we should focus on all things good!

Olivia said...

Very well done!
I love to take the negatives and weave those into positives.. you have done a brilliant job with that! The image says it all..

Enchanting!

Victoria said...

This is so refreshing. I love the attitude and the line that says you've already filled every corner with honey-colored hope. This is the type of person I want for a friend! The type of person I want to be.

Uneven Stephen said...

Wow, what a great message you convey in this poem. I love the way this flows off the tongue: "Last night
it rained behind my closed pane." Inspiring.

Vinod said...

Behind the pane it rained. you never think the outside is the behind the norm is to think that we sitting inside are behind the panes. Liked that

Classic NYer said...

This is beautiful and so, so true... I love the vivid imagery. I guess I'll have to be back...

Miriam Sagan said...

Thank you--enjoying perusing here.

bharat chandran said...

And that's the right and loveliest thing to do too!!
When a heart is full of love, hope and compassion, nurture is the best way to bring it all out...

Your imagery and beautiful way of translating it into words never ceases to stupefy me, Baishali...
Bravo!!

Bhargav said...

ayala said...

I miss your beautiful words. I hope all is well with you.

Luke Prater said...

acceptance/taking a positive from negativity - 'nurse and nurture' - its the right way isn't it? I liked your poem
