Through the mind's eye

I close my eyes and I hear a sound, 
Running water, joyful and unbound. 
Leaping and roaring, swirling and swishing, 
Loud slaps of waves crashing. 
But the chaos yet fuels peace within me, 
As I close my eyes and let my mind see. 
Past the horizon, beyond the mundane, 
My mind wanders off as I hear the sound of the rain. 
Pitter patter of raindrops on the window sill, 
Exuding calm as I stand still. 
The raindrops purge the earth and all within, 
Washing away my wrongs and my sins. 
And I envision dew drops, sparkling and profound, 
As they fall from blades of grass, purifying the ground. 
And I find that sheer joy I can’t deny 
Myself to feel through my mind’s eye. 
And I can hear the wind howling through the trees, 
Taking with it the seeds and the leaves,  
It ruffles the feathers of the birds flying high, 
The feel of freedom none other can satisfy. 
A dazzle of colour, gray, green and blue, 
Circling and singing a melodious hue. 
And such are the birds that sail the air free, 
That in my mind’s eye I vividly see… 
And far off, I hear the fain song of a bird, 
Ecstatic that the sun is now peeping at the world. 
The first rays pierce through the darkness to reach the earth, 
Lighting up a vibrant world, increasing its worth. 
I can hear the pigeons cooing and the monkeys chattering, 
Each one expectant and eager for a new beginning. 
And a benevolent sun does smile down upon us, 
Through my mind’s eye I can see him relish the early morning rush. 
And through my mind’s eye, I witness time pass by, 
As the sun hides his head under the blanket of his great bed. 
And like the mice who play while the cat is away, 
The moon peeps over the dark forlorn cloud 
And invites a din magnificent and loud, 
Of hidden creatures, loyal to the dark, 
But beautiful and graceful like the singing lark. 
With their voice like melody, they dance and fly, 
This is what I see through my mind’s eye. 
Animals of prey gear up for the hunt, 
They move about stealthily, nighttime has begun. 
An eerie silence reigns all around, 
Such peace is very difficult to be found. 
And again time flies as if on wings, 
And the sun rises once more to brighten up things. 
It seta again making way for the night, 
My mind’s eye has shown me the most wonderful sight.
