A Shower In The Dark

I come out of my coveted abode ,
to find a surprisingly refreshing gust of cool air wash over me,
I soak in the feel n gather myself up,
only to be mobbed by a flurry of dust and leaves flying here n there.
A faint but enchanting smell of fresh earth permeates the atmosphere,
opening up all my senses to the bounties of nature.
An uncontrollable joy wells up inside me,
brimming out as i feel a cold prickle crawl down my skin,
and gushing out madly making me dance and run,
as the sky shattered and fell over me in tatters.
In a few minutes, the joy is washed off, and I feel the need to seek a refuge.
I take shelter in a dark shaded spot, and begin to drift into a land of dreams.
My vision betrays me and my sense of hearing becomes sharper,
I hear a deafening blast that leaves me weak on my own knees,
then suddenly out of nowhere appears a fleeting flash of light,
within which the visuals my eyes capture, leave me dumb-struck.
I saw thousands and thousands of brilliantly sparkling diamonds,
gliding on an infinitely long, murky, black velvet curtain,
coming down hard on a mysterious flat mirror,
splitting into a thousand more tiny shards,
sinking into a world I know not of.
I wanted to go out there and grab a handful for myself,
but alas, by the time I moved, the flash was gone,
and I was left alone in stark darkness wondering in awe at the play of nature.

A Perspective on - "LIFE"

'Life' - it is an interesting word,
drives one through his memories, as soon as it's heard.
It carries the burden of one's plight,
n caresses the glimpses of his joyous flight.

It bears in its letters, the essence of one's being,
his encounters with both dead and living.
It takes one into the world of dreams,
flashes of future, so real it seems.

It's an expression of one's emotions - so diverse and so deep,
and loads of experiences bundled up in a heap.
Life has three parts - past, present and the future.
but you've got to LIVE in the present - that's the law of nature.

So, enrich THIS moment with the life of yore,
and nurture the near with visions from your core.
'Life' - it is an intersting word,
and its up to U to make it treasured.
