A new beginning

Rain's drizzling from forest canopies, Evening sun peeking through leaves, Flowers rising from decaying hues Amid the woods tangled and untidy. Shadows are dancing unknowingly Whispering evening wind songs, To the music of a distant waterfall. They witnessed my arrival With a cautious screech and roar, A suspecting growl, and buzz. It was the elephants' trumpeting That made chimpanzees scream. In the wilderness of dissonance I'm seeking peace and harmony. Moon is emerging from darkened hues, A shiny star is peering through. A starry night guides my path, Silently contemplating, traversing The mountains of nothingness; Meditating to exit solitude, Looking for the glorious morning sun. Magical palace where you dream The arrival of a new world Worshipping serendipity, Drowned in agony, swallowing reality. The fog of misery has vanished Disappearing like the morning mist. Birds are singing morning songs, Rising horizon signals a new beginning. July 31, 2017 Placed 1st: Brian's Choice 4 Contest by Brian Strand
