Recently, I came across one of my friend’s post about a poetry competition. You could guess who?!
Its my friend Phoenix’s! Phoenix is an amazing poet who has now published her first book online called ‘Sensation and Stars’ which is absolutely brilliant! Do pay her a visit and do buy the book, which is available now in Kindle!!!!
This is Phoenix’s site. 👇 Don’t forget to follow her too!!
Poetry is just as amazing as Prose or stories or novels, but with a limited set of words but the whole meaning is wonderfully expressed!
Hey ya Phoenix.. it’s me Aathmana. I have never participated in any of your competitions earlier.. thought that I should do it soon.
So here is my entry..
Theme : Galaxy
Title : Infinitely yours!
Thought that my world is limited,
Within a rope acting like a boundary.
Have I ever crossed it, never did i!
Do I wish to, of course I do!
The ignition of solace,
The inglenook of my house feeds me,
Is too irresistible and endless
Like the sky up above me.
The stars sparkling high up,
Isn’t the rope,
But my call… Calling me to explore the Inexplorable!
The sky I know from the fables of my grandmother
Is totally different from the soaring reality.
The horrors of reality is fed like candy,
Knowing not the limit, but enjoying the infinite.
I see constellations, and the scorching sun,
I see the fireballs up in the sky, acting cool, acting fake.
I see the tails of fire, running past my head, in a Jiffy!
I see everything but it’s nothing!
Because I know the anonymous sky above me is infinite…
We name Galaxies, we name systems..
We name the unknown, but we never know.
When I penetrate further..
To nothing but truth, I am welcomed by the horrors as expected
There is no glazing sun, but a hot ball of extreme fire.
There is no twinkling stars, but the glowing pieces of random.
There is no constellations, but unknown arrangements!
But don’t you say there’s nothing,
Because there is this ‘everything’ in nothing.
There is no single galaxy, but galaxies
And the everything in the nothing belongs to none..
But you could claim!
Because the infinite can be yours…
You can be the infinite.
