I wish I could touch...

Dull and drab, vision I get
Whenever my distressed eyes scan life
I wish I could touch the rainbow
And paint my life with handful of vibrant colours!

My confidence is sinking
Hope is getting trapped
I wish I touch the sovereignty of sky
And let my soul fly high with verve!

As misfortune killed the zeal
Life became parched
I wish I could touch the clouds
And sprinkle some rain of freshness on it!

Happiness is plunged into darkness
Bleakness gripped the heart
I wish I could touch the serenity of dawn
And hug it tightly to infuse sparkle!

Misfortune invited the pungent aura
Harshly embittered my innocent dreams
I wish I could touch the fragrance of flowers
And fill my life with sweetness!

Life seems numb
Grief erased the melody
I wish I could touch the voice of lark
And greet the rhythm of new song!

Loneliness scratched the emotion
Camaraderie left me in the lurch without caring
I wish I could touch the softness of warmth
And embrace it to soak affection!

This post is in response to the creative prompt "Wish List Wednesdays" provided by Preeti Shenoy, whose fourth book "The Secret Wish List" has been released recently and getting nice reviews. This week's prompt is "I wish I could touch...."

  10. It just seems like such a sad poem but then also at the same time it seems as if you are looking to find joy and happiness somewhere within your life. I wish for you to touch your life with all for which you search and for you to know that it is out there for the taking. Although I know that one can be happy but one can also be searching for something more without even knowing it. I think we all want to touch that which we seem to want and maybe it is possible and maybe it is not. Thank you for showing us that we can always search for more in our lives.

    Happy Theme Thursday and hope your weekend is full of many blessings.

    God bless.
