Theatrical antics

Loud chirping attracts my attention

Looking towards the tree in the yard

I see so many birds, talking loudly amongst themselves

The topic must be politics as I see a lot of disagreement

Theatrical antics from the little feathered critters

As they fly away to come back with vigor again and again

I watch amused and spellbound for many an hours

Who said that drama is only the domain of humans?

A dazzling display

When a child finds the wonder of starlight

Her eyes bedazzled by the sparkling lights

The joy on her face is a beauty to witness

Makes you believe once again in the power

Of the unseen , of the uncomprehendable

That we surely can see but never tire of wondering about!

Gilded cage

Your need to control my life

Has undermined our relationship

You’ve put me in a gilded cage

And think that I should be happy

My pleas for freedom fall on deaf ears

But don’t be complacent because one day

I will steal the key and set myself free

A cage is a cell even when clothed in luxury

Vivacious beauty

For the visually impaired, the image is a vibrant abstract digital painting. 


Real beauty

Can never be insipid

Dull or uninspiring

Always vivacious and charming

Makes you sit up and notice

Make you dream big dreams

Weave big plans to conquer the

Real beauty makes us want to do

Deeds that will be remembered forever

And make us immortal for all time

Whence the ambition?

A small flame flickers

It needs to be fanned into a fire

Desires that drive us

Ambition that hold the reins

What’s a life without a purpose

Or a journey without a goal?

Eugi’s Weekly Challenge – Breathless – August 16, 2022

The universe holds its breath

Just as the sun makes its descent

It’s time for dusk to spread its purple cloak

And color everything a deep velvet blue

I stand here breathless

Nature is amazing

Look closely

Look closely

Even a drop of water

Holds a world captivating

With rainbow hues and

Wonder caught in it

Look closely

At the world around you

And you will be blown away

With the beauty in everything

A feeling of immense gratitude

Will overwhelm you

Being gifted with

A world of beauty

Look closely!
