As they write

As they write

As they write

A lifetime they have pledged to the tightropes

attempting to view the world in a different light,

while loitering continually at that treacherously narrow line

demarking offsprings of fantasies from life’s facts,

as they bury themselves under the shroud of their talent

willingly getting soaked in the sweat of sacrifices.

 

Images that spill from the chalice of creativity,

and trickle down as mystic rivulets of thoughts,

keep cascading in their enlightened soul without a pause,

as coal black ink begin to inscribe ageless words,

igniting a spark of divinity in blank parchments,

while ideals of that seemingly never attained perfection,

taunts them by raising  the bar a bit higher.

 

In solitude, they do surrender their minds,

unconditionally to the imperious command of muses,

undertaking journeys into both the past and future

before returning to the inevitable present,

sharpened to pluck out the seeds of truth from lies’ fleshy layers

yet gentle enough to blossom at the slightest touch of beauty.

 

And on some neatly arranged rows in the bookshelves,

in the yellowed pages of a well worn book,

they watch with pride their infallible legacies,

of words set aglow with the flame of passion,

to be hungrily devoured by all kindred souls,

hoping that they would defy the parameters of change and time,

in their gradual ascension to eternity.

    Wonderful tribute to all the poets and writers of the world who devote their lives to this solitary art, a loving embrace with words. Your phrasing is impeccable and your warmth and understanding heartfelt. A beautifully rendered work, a small part of your lasting legacy as a poet. Excellent work Anjana, you have much to be proud of in your own ascension as a writer of masterful talent and expression.

    Your impeccable illustrations grab the mind, and carry it off into the ethereal world in which all writers exist. I am surrounded by demons of gladness and a plethora of attitudes as they combine and separate themselves into the hidden, yet all too obvious, conclave called writing. Enjoyable is to say the very least; on the mark more the truth. Excellent tribute, my dear friend!
