A Blissful Embrace

Please have a glance at the top of this hub where you'll find a beautiful painting. This painting is a sole property of a wonderful writer by the name of Annart. She, most kindly, has invited all to write something on this fantastic painting that shows a lonely guy staring at an ocean. Here is my response and I hope you'll relish it a bit.


Response to Ann's challenge

Only you can empathize with all, who can know better than you ?

Things take refuge in your arms, as kids sitting safe on dad's lap.


As a mother bears all thorns, her child blossoms like a rose,

I hear mother's love in your roar, only who can match your heart.


Insouciance indulged in my life, only a mother can swallow up,

Take me in your blissful arms, merge me into the dulcet waves.


Such an expanse you go far, see the ocean surging in my mind,

It took each bit, drank all potions, I brought along to show you all.


Waters you carry instill fear in all, pricks I bear can pierce the sky,

I want to feel your quiescence and show how I kept my patience.


Friend, we must come closer and share things that we faced,

Come near, stretch arms to me, take me in an huge embrace !



© Harish Mamgain

      Chris, you rightly pointed out a mistake in a word. I have set it right. The word is refuge meaning shelter and not refuse. Thanks a lot for your guidance, my friend.

      To be a part of some wonderful game is such a nice feeling. Bill, this was the second challenge for me, first being thrown by Frank Atanacio. I relished both. I always love your words on any of my hubs. Thanks for reading and commenting and very encouraging words.

      Sorry to have taken so long to get round to reading this. It was worth the wait - lovely poem! As someone for whom English is a second language you have done such a wonderful job here, just as good as the other responses so you should be proud of yourself. I have added your link to my hub.

      Thank you so much for taking up the challenge. I'm humbled by the magnificent response from everyone.

      Still beautiful the second time around. In some ways, this is antithetical to my poem. Very well done.

      A sweet poem. I don't think I've comprehended it all yet, but I'll read it again. I noticed something in sentence two. Refuse = Refuge?? Just wondering. Going back to read again. Thanks for sharing.

      John, I was tempted to write something the moment I saw Ann's beautiful painting. I read her wonderful hub later on when I found out the link in one of the responses to the challenge. Though English is second language to me, I have all admiration for it for assimilating from so many sources, turning it into as one of the richest languages. I accepted the challenge just because of my love for the English language and to show that I'm also on the way of learning it in a proper way. Thanks for your support and constant encouragement.

      Every now and then I find poetry that I can call mighty. This one has the force of love behind it in a very special way. I shall begin and end my day with hugs today. And in doing so think fondly of this poem.
