Nature’s Medley

Oceanside

Curious crimson
Of a dusky sun
Mixing with seas
Of tranquility
In this cocktail, drop
A potion of moonlight
See the waves dance

Woodland

Flirtatious wind
Caresses pine trees
Raindrops tremble
In torrents free
As clouds descend
The forest resounds
With a swish of jealousy

Hillside

Feathery gray
The magic of waiting
As the mist gathers
Engulfing me
Before the first rain
Surreal shift of clouds
On yonder hills

Dunes

A desert storm
Blows away the
Sands of time
Golden dunes shift
An oasis moves further
I stand blinded
Clinging to a mirage

Mountain River

Life’s meanderings
Like the whimsical
Bends of rivers
Inundated, rocky,
Puddling, flowing
From icy glaciers
To the vast ocean!

I am just ME … a soul streaming across constellations, over eons of turbulent changes and tranquil noises, perturbed by the visions that engulf me and ruffled by the oft complacence that challenges the change. Yet, I must travel further across the galaxies, in search of the ultimate metamorphosis. Until then, I sojourn in this life, engrossed in my earthly callings of a wife, mother, professional, writer, dreamer, and seeker. On this blog you will find a spectrum of fiction, poetry, reviews, thoughts, snippets, inspiration, experiences, voices, concerns, excerpts, and everything that the soul has gathered in her fold, over years of reading, searching, finding, losing, and discovering. I regularly indulge in various creative pursuits, like crochet, experimental cooking, reading, and writing, and I hold a managerial/editorial role in a financial services organization with a global footprint. For a long time, social media hijacked my personal writing space, as I was sharing more on Facebook and writing Tweet-sized poetry on Twitter. Social media is instant but temporary gratification. Ultimately, a writer needs their own space, and personal blogging provides that space. I had started a blog more than a decade ago but all things need to be infused with new life, emerge in a new avatar, and so it is with my new blog space. Let your love and encouragement pour into Blue Pen Strokes. Check out Aneesha Shewani (@tweetoeuvre): https://twitter.com/tweetoeuvre?s=09
