A Big Move & Full Bloom!

It's been one 'Heaven' (don't wish to use any negatives here!!! :) ) of a Month!!!
Our family moved to Ernakulam - one of the cities of Dreams I must say! Hopes, Dreams and Aspirations...Wish it turns to Reality!
Though it's said many galleries are closing down and the art business in general is dull... I hope something right strikes through and I come across the much needed break! :) One usually travels along lines of their inch to one side or the other, it just takes an inch to fall into that path which takes one to their destination...but then the journey makes the destination much more interesting, right!

I need to get back on my track...doing art! It's been almost a month since I blogged and created something arty!!! (in between all this moving, packing and unpacking!) I need 'my messy space' to get inspired and indulge! :)

It was a Full Moon yesterday and to get a vast view of the blooming moon with city lights beneath was a sight to perceive! I just felt to jot down a few lines imagining a person in love. :)

I am a ‘Lunatic’!
As I see the gorgeously rising Full Moon
My heart springs with unknown joy;
I call it ‘High’!
Playing hide and seek
Amid the grey clouds
Winding and unwinding the tensions around
For lighter hearts,
The mooning and moaning ones,
The dreamy and soaring ones,
The pining and immersed ones,
The maddening and sickening ones…
I long to see the joy in full bloom
Trying to escape the realities perhaps!
I am a ‘Lunatic’ (and yet not wish to be one!)!
The vast expanse and the city beneath
From my high window
I see it all!
Longing for a presence
So near and yet so far!
I am a ‘Lunatic’ (longing for Love)!

Dream searches its own path. Very true, Deepa. The poem is beautiful. Socrates said "There must be a tincture of madness in genius." Creativity lies in craziness. Enjoyed reading it :)
