"The Dance!"

A balance is what I am trying to strike
While dancing on the rim of my cup full of life.
In colors of moonlit hue and night's solitude,
In shade's of life's grey and eternity's strife.

Fiercely shines the sun, dazzling bright
Scarlet I turn in its solemn light.
My heart gets wings and a rhythm divine
To enjoy the bliss of my moonlit wine.

Waves of radiant joy and worries trifle.
Beats of the raindrops in sparkled regale.
Mysteries of being alive awakens me to LIFE
To dance on their tune on my slippery rim.




  1. Such a lovely poem dear!You have captured the essence of living so well!

    May your cup of life always be full to the brim,and not a single drop of it go wasted.

    Dance away sweetie!

    Love you loads.Hugsss

  2. Well, your poems have reached a different level altogether , deserving absolute superlatives in all forms.

    There is a quiant old school feel to this one and the pic aptly serves the objective.

    To come down to the poem , the rhythm and the composition deserves a special mention .
    The 1st stanza :12-11-12-11 syllabled.
    2nd : 9-9-10-10 syllabled and

    3rd stanza:10-10-13-11 syllabled .


    It seemed your attempt to something philosophical about life has reached a delectable high with your terrific imageries.
    I am sure there are many more of your poetic pearls to come and that too very soon , each one a notch above it's predecessor .
    Each one with a dash of
    Preetilata-esque rendition .

    Take care .

  14. Hi Preetilata,
    Man always dances to the tune of life. Sometimes the dance can be fast and sometimes it becomes slower. But as we dance to the tune of life, may we pause for a while to see where the
    unending gyrations will lead to. Thanks for the beautiful poem. It showed your sensitivity to the yearnings of your heart and soul. God bless you always.

  15. Wow...lovely have crafted it beautifully...I think this is one of your best poems till now...I just read it again & again...Excellent lines!

    Love and hugs to you too!
