Treasure Island

Valsa George


Inaudible Whispers


When in dark despair drowned
I was thinking, joy was nowhere around
A gentle breeze from the upland peaks
Came and patted on my cheeks
Softly whispering- ‘joy is now here’

When the last ray of hope had been snuffed out
From the vapid plane of my arid heart,
A cluster of orchids, beautiful and gay
Smilingly nodding their heads on my way
Sweetly murmured- ‘joy is now here

When I feared the earth was caving in
Under my feet with no chance to win
A butterfly with rainbow colors
Alighting on a bunch of flowers
Euphoniously hummed- ‘joy is now here’

When all my yearnings got shattered
And sustenance alone was what mattered
The blazing sun from behind the hills
Wiping away all morbid chills
Beamingly affirmed-‘joy is now here

When I thought I was drifting afloat
Without any moorings on my boat
A crystal drop precariously balancing
On the serrated edge of a leaf dancing
Playfully chimed-‘joy is now here’

When darkness settles on the scene
When life loses all tinge of green
When days seem inert and grey
Don’t be in a hurry to say
“Joy is nowhere around”

Before you jump to conclusions dismal
And write off life as abysmal
Wait to see the cycle of seasons change
From winter’s haze to spring’s lovesome range!

    Life is not all bed of roses...joy may come and go, just take life as it is wishful as always! (Report) Reply

    It's a fabulous verse permeated with hope.I read it many times and felt deep joy in my heart. The refrain is thematic. It makes me think if we can imagine a life without Nature. The line I'd always remember: ''When days seem inert and grey
    Don’t be in a hurry to say
    “Joy is nowhere around”'.....joy's always there beaming from the hearts like yours! (Report) Reply

    Joy can be found anywhere and everywhere. If we would only open our hearts and minds
    to it. Even in the simplest matter and the things that seems of no significance to us joy
    will finds its way there. Very good details and full of sweet and savory words. I enjoyed
    this delectable treat. A good write. (Report) Reply

    A poet to the core, you can see both the sides of life and you would like to show the brighter side to the fellow poets. Dear madam Valsa, it is a poem that reflects life in its true proportions... Hats off to you for this great spill of thoughts. (Report) Reply

    If you observe closely there is hope everywhere. It is attitude that is important. One can see a loss in a win or see win in a loss. Thank you fora beautiful poem which is very positive filled with joy. (Report) Reply

    The inaudible voice whispering about the presence of joy in life is heard only by a soul with a marked positive bent of thought...and the targeted listener of this voice is the one who is always in a hurry to declare the absence of joy...the poem is rich with the positive vision of life with the strong presence of joy in it..Valsa ji...very beautiful! ! !
