Thank you very much Blogadda!!!

The Silent Sentinel - Painting on glass tile, 5*5 inches
The Silent Sentinel
Tossing in the turbulence
We tried to forge forth
And meet our loved ones
The kisses had become lashes
Our eyes blinded by foam & darkness
Our lives dangled on knife’s edge
Hearts prayed and chants uttered
But nothing helped us and our soul fluttered
Voices cried and raved
Merging with the waves and the tempest that swayed
“Captain, Are we lost?” squeaked Tony
“No son, Lord is there to guide us”
Said our Captain with a heart that was heavy.
What was that???
A gleam of light went past his vision
Lord, O saviour – Was hat a sign?
Cried our Captain “This way!”
Every eye turned towards the light
There arose the silent sentinel
That has paved way for many a lost soul
Again, it has done it’s duty
I wonder, how many are grateful to
That sentinel which directs us…?
This is a poem I wrote when I was in college(I was 19 or so). I was rummaging thru my stuff when I came across this poem in one of my old diaries and I thought this would go well with my new glass painting. It's not perfect still I love it:-)
I was wondering about my sentiments at that point of time. Do we change as years pass by? Does our basic nature remain the same? I keep assessing & evaluating myself time & again.
This weekend I am engaged in one of the commission works.
Sketch of a commission work (9*12 inches) for one of my friends who wants it to gift it to her daughter's teacher.
I am linking this post to Colours Dekor's Weekend Wrap Up 37.
