Candour

Written by: Dr. Upma A. Sharma

Savouring joys of childhood,
Subtle longings as exquisite as silk,
Vibrant temper of euphoria and sombreness ,
I existed as a vivacious being.

Entrenched into studies and passion for friends,
Where intellect seemed to be all life,
Zealously endeavoured on ardent path,
Walked persistent and cherished travel.

Found my love and walked into life,
Ravished every moment of exhilaration ,
Hovered alpine to the summit of ambitions,
Achieved peak of perfection and pinnacle of fame.

Now as I experience the heyday of life,
As red as furnace on the edge of horizon,
I perceive the moment of truth in noontide,
Enigma of divine enchantment unveils .
