Up In Smoke

I walked on the garden path, young heart pulsating with the cadence of love, fostered dream of permanence in the transient world for being loved and possessed forever. Times turned into an inferno, my dreams went up in smoke, blew away the incinerated mind, a dislodged withered ashen leaf, disappearing silently undiscerned, like a drop of uncared tear. In the ravaged desolate garden trampling the razed flowers in the summer of discontent, I walked a lonely journey with the smoldered yearning, buried within mind’s ash debris. That’s when searching the soul I discovered the inner divine light, revealing the real sense of belonging, defined the heavenly purpose of being, and by the grace of God I found the devout course of life so beautiful. __________________ January 21, 2022 Title Chosen : Up In Smoke Contest : This Or That, Vol 9 Sponsor : Edward Ibeh
