A Flavour of Life

Updated on June 12, 2017

A Sojourn

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight blurred our inner vision
We despised width, length and height
A symmetrical urge wilted sense of life.

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight colored our soul much
We ceased to touch heart and mind
A melanin measure altered face of life.

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight stirred our mind wild
We twisted smiles playing on the face
A naïve move triggered storms in life.

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight whacked our heart hard
We wandered in the mazes of love
A mere glance ruined castles of life.

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight withered our conscience
We blamed suave curves and fissures
A sudden kink crashed the flow of life.

Close our eyes for some moments
For the sight robbed our psyche bad
We created nightmares out of images
A mere look changed all essence of life.

Now taste the life and forget all forms
Hear that every word rushes to kiss you
Smell the nature and each being with love
Touch the earth down and things around.

Sleep and dream the things we touched
Words you heard and the food we tasted
Smooth skin we felt and scintillating smell
A sojourn of sight will incite flavor of life.

      Kevin, I got it, you closed eyes and both of us got a good laugh... Lol. Glad that you liked it. It just occurred to me how our viewing the world arouse so many perceptions, some misplaced ones, in our mind. Only if we could avoid insensitiveness, apathy and bias out of our sight, the life would be more brighter ! Just a thought, and no doubt, sight is a great boon and we must cherish and harness it to the maximum. I appreciate your visiting this hub, commenting so beautifully. Thanks for voting and sharing.

      I closed my eyes only I could not read the verse, lol. Just kidding. I fell in love at my HS prom and closed my eyes to love since. I closed my eyes to my psyche and never had nightmares - only occasional dreams. It was beautiful Harish, I voted it up, shared and pinned it.

      Wonderful poetry Harish. Yes, we all need to close our eyes from time to time and savour the wonder of life with our other senses. Voted up.

      Yes, Eric, sight is such a wonderful gift of life, but our other senses are no less potent. Sometimes what we see and interpret becomes the cause of unease , then the sight really needs an emergency break.

      You have beautifully summed it up that we must harness our other powerful senses also. Thanks for your kind visit and such generous and insightful words.

      Oh to quiet the mind of that most omnipotent of senses. To take the time to allow other beauty to permeate our being is such a blessing. What a marvelous and touching piece. Thank you.
