Love story of Fire and Ice

I have been nominated by the poetess Ellora Mohanty to participate in the poetic marathon #PeetMeNotLeave. For eight consecutive days, I will be publishing one of my poems along with a photo.

I have been quite late in participating in this contest but nonetheless, I wanted to give it a try for the sheer joy of being able to create some poetic landscapes. I hope you like my attempt and in some way, enjoy the journey. I welcome you all on this fun ride!!

I have chosen Fire/light as my inspiration and I hope I do justice to the theme through my poems.

The fourth poem is captioned as Love story of Fire & Ice!

I am the ball of fire, declared the Sun

The source of energy of all the living beings,

The symbol of life , the harbinger of good vibes.

The ceaseless fusion in my chest

Radiates the eternal shine, inevitable

For the possibility of life itself.

I am the truth that rises every morning,

Inspiring millions to make the most of the day,

To make progress as my glaze gets brighter,

With each passing hour.

I am whole , unique & many eyes every single time

Look up to me to glow in my glory,

To reaffirm the faith in light over darkness.

A giver needs to give & hence I burn

To keep giving myself but none wants

To ever know what is it that I seek.

My ever gleaming flames,

Seek the solace of coolness,

The inspiration to constantly self annihilate myself.

Meanwhile ,the Moon sighed in a corner,

Pondering over thoughts , making efforts to understand ,

About the dilemma

Whether it is ugly or beautiful,

Some say I am with dents & scratches,

While few cite me as the epitome of beauty

I , the Moon pronounced,

Am the showstopper of the night sky

The lovers swear their pious love by my very name,

The charm that nourishes the bruised hearts,

A calming effect is what I effortlessly discharge.

But , my barren & frigid soul constantly

Searches for the comfort of warmth of a savior

One who amplifies my true potential,

Confessed the moon to the galaxies of stars around.

The Sun & the Moon then looked into,

Each others eyes and smiled, for they knew

Despite the distance that separated them,

It was also the reason why they both ,

Got celebrated each passing day.

They eclipse each other few times,

Signifying that none of them is without a glitch.

The sun might rule the day,

But the night is incomplete

Without the silver ball.

The Sun & the Moon,

Eternal lovers that they both are,

Keep holding onto each other,

Despite differences in properties,

Teach us some crucial aspects of relationships,

To co-exist in harmony despite the imbalances,

To inspire each other despite the sufferings,

To help evolve each other despite the failures,

To focus on goodness despite many short-comings,

Isn’t it?
