Go On Painting


How fast ye move with the sound, the brook, I find
No boat, no dive yet you are so beautiful, I drank
Thy sight, a throat full opiate and went to swoon
A nature’s painting! Lovely Curios; I will be back soon

On the lap of high mountains and with tall proud wood
With its fragrance; nose, ears, eyes and mind swooshed
With the heavenly chorus in the silence of commotion
Sun slowly slid down on the mountain slop with hood.

A little far there’s the Himalaya with shroud stood, the snow
Melts into the life that leaps shallowly unto plain, I know
Pure and chaste, grief, worries, agony all they wash and
Moves towards plain being serious and deep, hand to hand.

With the nature’s colour, willin to be painted and shine
Life; yet to know! recklessly and delicately, Is it really mine?

    Thank you! Filled with the nature's beauty, so much that came to be part of your painting. Please wave a hi to the cloud over that peak, it's part of me... (Report) Reply

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
