When words fall short.

Sometimes words fall short
When epiphany hits
When whole is visible in bits
When all the branches squeeze into roots
When thoughts dance and hands tremble
When life reveals itself
When Ephemeral ecstasy doesn’t exist
At that time the simplicity abducts the complexity
It happens in moments of bliss
When you sit and your heart races
When you see one in all faces
The story is in your heart
But your hands don’t move
The thoughts shout
But you don’t speak
When you hear mellifluous sounds
And your mind dances
At that time
Words do fall short.

      thanks a lot dear.

  1. Asha Seth says:

    Yeah, and that happens a lot when you’re lost in a fairytale world, not wanting to accept reality.

    1. shreyans says:

      It appears that I am lost most of the time.

      1. Asha Seth says:

        Haha! Funny but true for me too.

          You like people who are lost?

          1. Diana says:

            I feel a kinship as I think being aware that one is lost speaks of the realization that we are indeed insignificant in the universe. It’s humbling.

          2. shreyans says:

            Wow. Great understanding. And we are insignificant? Right?

          3. Diana says:

            We are not even grains of sand in the cosmos. Yet occasionally a higher power gathers some grains into his/her palm. And … here we are my friend. Grains together.

            Yes exactly. But there is no power, just life.

          5. Diana says:

            Yes. A physical beating heart and a mind that questions “why”.

          6. shreyans says:

            Yes. Glad to see the similarities in thoughts

    Mellifluous is one of my favourite words. Grabs my attention and then I plunge into the rest of your poem 😌
