Reminiscence of the past and it's chronicles.

 

Oasis of lime-washed walls  hues of indigo blue in the middle  of chaos, clamour of old capital a courtyard stands firmly embodying ballads of intricate past  twinkles from anklet of maiden's feet vestiges of erstwhile kingdom, drowned  in cacophony of busy streets  people on roads, emerging cities  and night life, whispers into air  someday in future, infested  political structures will decay flowers of culture and glorious  past will bloom in cradle of ruins  until then a wanderer  lits the lamps  in name of lost ones  keeps it burning  till the break of dawn

Oasis of lime-washed walls 
hues of indigo blue in the middle 
of chaos, clamour of old capital
a courtyard stands firmly
embodying ballads of intricate past 
twinkles from anklet of maiden's feet
vestiges of erstwhile kingdom, drowned 
in cacophony of busy streets 
people on roads, emerging cities
 and night life, whispers into air
 someday in future, infested
 political structures will decay
flowers of culture and glorious
 past will bloom in cradle of ruins
 until then a wanderer
 lits the lamps
 in name of lost ones
 keeps it burning
 till the break of dawn.

  1. Visiting from the Wordless Wednesday community. Lovely poetic expression. Honoring and remembering those who are no longer with us is a noble thing visible or not, keeping those dear to us alive someway gives comfort to the heart. Feel free to join my WildWednesdays 'the party where just about anything goes' linky party! Have a wonderful day. ;)

    1. Thank you Cathy for your encouraging words and for responding to the poetic piece in such a thoughtful way.
      The image represents one of the old historical gardens. When you step into a historic building or the gardens, you are reminded of their celebrated old days. Some times the one's who had built it and the one's who are their descendants, never gets to see the marvellous architecture, as either they are forced fled or exiled, some die out of our own forgetfulness. Instead, we should be thankful for their efforts, should visit these places and remember them with a good heart like we remember our birth ancestors.
      Thank you for visiting me here today and for the Linky invite. I'll check your blog hop details to join soon. Thanks and have a lovely week ahead.

    1. I wish you the same Sandee. Thanks for coming over and showing some love and support. I thought to add something meaningful this #wordlesswednesday in form of verses related to the places we might feel connected to, but don't visit often. It's a gentle reminder for all to revisit the history we are surrounded with. Looking forward for the next blog hop. Have a lovely day and joyful week ahead.

    1. Thank you so much for your words and for visiting me here. It really means a lot. Poetry in it's own way evokes a vortex of thoughts not only for the ones who creates it but also for the one who consumes it. It stays and it lingers. I am delighted that it was received by you, beautifully. Thanks again and have a wonderful day ahead.

    1. Exactly! I loved the idea of burst of colours against the backdrop of washed walls. I've often seen such settings in old houses of historical cities. People still kept their courtyards in India with plants of both ornamental as well as medicinal value. Very 80's 90's vibes. Now, it's being replaced by balcony gardens and well painted walls. So eyes still long for the rustic and earthly aesthetics. Thank you, Dear David, for stopping by, sharing your thoughts and sparking so much joy. Have a lovely weekend with your friends and family.
