A place like this

The epitome of peach shaped markings,
Defining the extended fields of valour and hope,
Drooling in my walnut bones,
Mingling in my solitary ebb,
Lies inside a place where my mother
Wakes me up from a cascading nightmare.
To the jubilant staircase of rainbow meadows,
To catch an intrepid molecule of a butterfly
Then to drink a cup of valour,
As I see a place like this
Rupturing, beaming.
Flickering amidst the stars in the sky.

  1. Another gorgeous piece, MVS. Your unique use of language is fascinating and refreshing. Drooling in my walnut bones – who else could summon those words but you. You’ve described a beautiful place with the most vivid imagery. There is no doubt you are a beautiful poet.

  2. time and a mother’s love
    can heal perspective
    can bring us back to a time
    when she so loved
    us as a child
    when all our dreams
    were infinite and new
    our mother reminds us
    that our dreams can be
    and should be
    now as well
    reminds us
    that we have
    no limitations
    ascend your jubilant staircase of rainbow meadows
    it’s what she would want
    don’t stop
    the stars in the sky await

    • Forrest!
      Nice to hear such meaningful lines from you. Mother is the ultimate healing balm as described by you.
      And yes the positivity returns with the staircase of rainbow.

      You stirred my poems with your brilliant gestures once again.

  3. Mother makes everything alright. Whichever part of the world you’re in, she has this telepathic intuition about the situation we are in & that we are afraid to reach out to her. But before we can make up our mind about sharing our thoughts with her, she would’ve already asked point blank about the issue. I wonder how that happens and I’m so glad it does, I usually tell her everything and it feels all wrong to not disclose the things I’ve on my mind.
    Here is a poem I had written a year ago, I think you’ll like it.
