dark could signify life!


[picture courtesy : Catherine ]


the summer heat parched the clay
God on a prosaic mind!
barren land and dry wood
awaiting the drizzle of life!

sky darkened above the hills
mist engulfed the glade
clouds appeared as angels
draped in those sensuous dishabille!

dark and dreary, envisioning rain
the forest stood aspiring life!
nature's subtle way of explaining
dark could signify life!


Not every dark phase in your life is a punishment. Some makes you learn and some helps you grow. Face your life as it comes, the darker strokes could make the final picture more beautiful!

Wow...beauiful poetry anil..liked it and I completely agree.Afterall everything happens for a reason.Today or later we will come to know why whatever happened,happened:)

Margaret said...

Nature definitely has a way of explaining life to us!

And how could we ever appreciate the light if we've never been through the dark. Only by experiencing these bleak situations can we grow in the light of life.
There's always a light at the end of every dark tunnel.

Your poem beautifully brings across how 'dark could signify life'. Lovely lines Anil :)

SMRITI said...

Sooooo true!! The dark shades highlight the bright colours of your life...and they are as important as others...

Beautifully put :)

Scattered Thoughts... said...

Dhanya said...

I totally agree. If you take those dark phases in the right spirit you can learn helluva lot from them.

Whatever happens, happens for the good! :) Nicely written poem too...

wowww anizie, it's insightful and so very beautiful at the same time.

what a beautiful way to explain that life is beautiful and every cloud has got a silver lining.

Some of the worst things in life are intended to make a person better not bitter.......so yes, darkness signifies life!

Netika Lumb said...

Ah..true..very true..
A friend once told me, that it's better to be in an emotionally testing phase than be in a emotionally dead one..

Little Girl Lost said...

oooh... me first?

Little Girl Lost said...

actually, what i think is, darkness makes close your eyes and take stock. it makes you change your perception... and prepares you for a fresh burst of life...

the pink orchid said...

can i hug you for writing ths one ? thank you!!

Priya Joyce said...

beautiful thought...very very true...

:)

deepa said...

Very true!Very nicely said!
Now, I personally feel that there are no mistakes in life only lessons (Robin Sharma!). Every incident teaches you something good or bad which eventually helps you to grow.
Maybe one loses hope at that point but gradually when you are calm and collected again, reflect on it and you'll know that there was a reason and that the lesson is learnt!
Dark shades do have their own beauty. It intensifies the mood, the beauty of art/life.

ANWESA said...

a beautiful poem with a beautiful message!!!keep blogging!

Tangerine said...

'not every dark phase in ur phase is a punishment'

wow! i really love the optimism.
and the poem is awesome!!

Kartz said...

Beautifully done, mate. Could relate it to what I had written a few days back.

Soul searching helps a lot.

What is darkness? Absence of light. Darkness does hide something. Ergo, the alluring, clandestine and enigmatic feel abt it.

Throw some light. Uncover the truth. Realize. After all, life is how we choose to see it. Loved the message you conveyed. Especially in that last stanza.

Let's link up each other's post. I'd love to. Just lemme know if you are fine with it too.

Peace.

Catvibe said...

Sawan, thank you for honoring my painting with your exquisite poem! You expressed well the underlying meaning of the image I think (and since it came from the darkness of my own consciousness, I get to declare these things :-). Thank you very much, Namaste Sawan

everything burns... said...

such a beautiful way to explain something so simple...something so usual...
and catherine the painting is beautiful as well

Ria said...

the last three lines were just so true and amazing....

Luscious Sealed Lips said...

I do not know why do not people consider Black a color. Like other bright colors, Black too, signifies Life.

Kisses.

shootingstar said...

sawan said...

ria, thnx for your words dear :)

sawan said...

LSL, black is also considered as a color dear, but a color for

death or insanity! in religious symbolism black is associated with

death. check this site:

http://painting.about.com/cs/inspiration/a/symbolsdeath.htm
maybe that wud help you know why black is assiciated with death

rather than life.

Scattered Thoughts... said...

aisa isiliye bola ke you always keep on sulking and then you are preaching about dark phases and to come out of that ;)

Scattered Thoughts... said...

I agree on that anonymous bit.. creeps are every where.. so cant help it.. but you must be happy.. tumne guru dekhi hai na.. "agar log tumhari burai karna start kare to samjho tum bade aadmi ho gaye ho.. " so getting love and hate messages are part of being a celebrity dude !!

sawan said...

maheep, nnothing like tht bro. i cant say tht ive never been sulky, but yes, ive overcome it :) life is fulof ups and downs, aint it. m sure tht i cud handle those sulky moments more efficiently now :D so i cud definitely preach, cant i? :P

Swapna said...
