Consolation


I look up at the clouds in the sky
So bright, so white, all so wonderful.
The sea gulls flying pointing to the sea
With its water sparkling like diamonds strewn on a field.
The smell of fresh air coming from the open horizon
As it stretches to grab what is infinity.
Feel the bright warm sunlight on my back
And turn around to look at the mountain peak
Covered with golden snow melting off the sun.
Mother nature hugs me from all around
In her bright green dress polka-dotted with reds, blues, yellows
And all the colors in the world, even those unnamed
And what is this that falls onto the ground?
A drop of water, is it rain?
More seem to fall, one on my finger, its warm.
I taste it, it's salty.
Mother nature hugs me tighter, but its not even consolation.

The sun is gone, the sky turns black.
No more do i hear the sound of birds.
A sudden shock of thunder i hear somewhere
A flash of lightning's teeth follows in its wake.
My heart filled with sadness, my hands clenched they shake.

Drops of ice cold numbness pour on me.
This time it is the pouring shower
But it doesn't numb away the pain inside
One more flash, it lights up the horizon
What is that at a distance?
I run, so fast that it feels like flying
Is it you?

I cant clearly see but I go and hold tight
Who else would come for me but you.
Holding on dearly with all my might
You kiss away with your warm lips, the brine from my eyes
And I see, it is you, I soar up high
Above the dark clouds, above the black sky
With you in my arms, I have wings to fly
With you in my arms, I have joy in my heart
Once I hold you tight we shall never be apart

The brine dries up, only a smile remains
All because you are there in my arms.
I want you, i need you, i cant live without you.
Finally rid of a life without you
With childish joy, we shall find happiness anew.

Up above the world so high
Like two doves we shall fly.

Its wierd how talent can hide in forms least expected... your blog provides an insight to an unknown you, a 'you' who is so full of youthful romance! I wasn't aware that the serious student in you had such a romantic shade to her persona!
keep writing, I'll be a regular to your blog!
