Ephemeral Passages


Current events are conducive
with nonchalant seeming pace

When future springs surprises
with time will learn to face

Cheery current subsistence
hence freewill I propound

Confines once start stifling
I might've broken new ground

Perceptive mind still active
with inspirations all about

If illusions start dissipating
then new pastures I would scout

Resources just about adequate
for me to earn my daily bread

In probable days of utter penury
accept all fate has for me spread

Traversed I have vast distances
to seek tranquility for the mind

Treks in future if improbable
then peace within I would find

Environs are lush and verdant
with magic for one to behold

Even autumn spreads enchantment
with different shades of gold

Reality a perplexing passage,
through many an abyss and ridge

Each nuance to be contented aptly
while coming to cross any bridge

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
