Beyond Reach!

The colored clouds with a glistening gray base
are temptations enough for me
to get more close to myself, and
inviting me
to color my hands by soaking them
in the liquid arches of the rainbow shades
so lavishly spilt as if
the palette is dropped down by the artistic hand
on the western edge of the fabric of the azure sky…

Or create a splash of vibrant hues
In those colored lakes
for unless I touch the cloud with my own hands
I wouldn’t know
whether it is as soft as cotton
as cold as ice
that white and gray and golden cloud…

Let me feel on my pulse
whether it gets melted down in the warmth of my hands
or simply freezes them in return…
O’ to fly so high
that the stars start looking bigger than the apparent size
on the sky
Alas! Quite beyond my reach!
Useless dreaming…
How tough it is to make one’s angry Muse reconciled,
Or the lost one, found?
So it is confirmed
by many more desperate attempts to compose a verse
ending in failure…
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
so this one is no exception!

    A powerful poem that appears to talk about the unreachable but still within the reach of a reader and attracting the appreciation of all.

  • Rekha Mandagere (11/8/2013 11:26:00 PM)

    It is human nature to have dreams always high and challenging. But still we kkeepstruggling to reach them. Nice expression of thought in the background of natural landscape makes it rich.
