Changing Hues of Life


Sometimes the past comes cascading
Into one’s life like a waterfall,
In all its beauty, innocence and excitement…

For some time at least
The horizon becomes colored with the brightest colors
Of a rainbow…

The moment disappears into the cascading torrent of time…
Sunshine bursts into the scene in all its shining glory
and shoos away all the clouds…

The reality of the present, clothed in truth and honesty,
Blazes its way back in
In denouement of the drama of changing hues of life.

    Life is never the same..... The rotating wheel of life keeps turning and churning, sometimes bringing to the fore all its beauty and sweetness and sometimes only sordidness..! . The relief is that it is never perennial! Great write, Jasbir! (Report) Reply
