Ataraxis

As we traverse in happiness of euphoric thoughts Exuberance of sunrise permeates our avid hearts Holding hands of leisure on hushed idyllic grounds, Where pink lotus-blooms lift-up in pristine pond Floating stilled moments in beauty of white swans, Embracing day’s serenity awakening in birdsongs. Upon the ruby roses, spring’s cheery winds blow As new dawn enlightens in morning’s soft glow When in your loving touch my riant smile unfolds, Ambling with you in hues of tranquil meadows As sanguine skies sprinkle magenta on vibrant arc And golden sun penetrates veil of retreating fog. Quietude reigns gardens in stance of the monarchs Rhapsodic in abundance of the blossoming floras Feasting on nectar in orange-black camouflage. As minutes tick slowly, slowing down the clock, Elysian peacefulness of this relaxed blessed day Lingers in caressing breeze, reveling ecstatic state. Carefree we arrive on the banks of cerulean bay Gazing ebullient tides frolicking on blue surface, Letting kiss of romance rejoice in the dreamy place. Reluctant to let us part, the verdant fields hesitate Realizing this is where exultant journey culminates As elated souls memorialize our utopian daybreak. February 25, 2020 Placed 2nd: Pick-A-Title, Vol 14 – Tristich Poetry Contest Sponsor: Edward Ibeh; Title chosen: Ataraxis Placed 3rd: Strand choice G contest by Brian Strand
