Searching for solace,
Turning a page,
I dipped into the world
Of incessant beauty.

Away from the cares
Of mundane chores, 
The words took me,
To a land unknown,
Climes unseen,
And men of dreams.

The verdant meadows,
Sparkling sunshine,
Reflecting a piece of heaven,
Invited languid strolls,
Hushed embraces,
And promises umpteen.

Rousing the blunted 
Embers of emotion,
Longings for passion,
Unbound recreation,
The senses danced up
To a trance.

Groped in the grip
Of this sensuous treat,
My senses revoked,
As I smelled,
Pungent carrots,
Burning right in front! 

I am ecstatic! Thanks Jingle for the award! Here is the second poem as required...

Breaking Boundaries

Cease mentally dissecting!
Give chance to the voice within.
You may shed a tear,
You may end up hurt,
You may break a heart,
But never will you regret;
For once you did what you wanted
And never have to ponder "what if i did".

What a beautiful poem! I saw in your blog that you describe yourself as a 'passionate dreamer' and the sounds of this poem capture that magnificently! The use of sibilance and sensory description really do carry the reader into your masterful world of distraction. I love the subtle humour of the last stanza to bring us carefully back to reality.

Thank you for sharing.

GLH :)

Love it! You firstly lead the reader to the beautiful and inspiring world just to get him right back to the reality at the end. Fascinating journey!

Thank you all for dropping by and leaving your thoughts. Means the world to me! Am glad you enjoyed the poem. This was inspired by the conflicts of catering to mundane household chores that eat up on the time i enjoy spending in the world of the written word. The escapist in me finds pleasures in the world of words and dreams :)

Going right onto each of your blogs and returning the gesture!
