Entry No. 11-‘Celebratione . . .’ by Aheesh Krishna

valentines day contest
Celebratione . . .As I reached the tip of cliff, to see a hut..
Fully decorated with Love, Happiness,Liberty & Ruth!
I stood Dumbstruck!! Not knowing this was nothing but
Waves & Waves of Joy taking their birth!!A true festival indeed! Wow! Wow! WoW!Balloons busted to spread sounds of life and bliss!!
Colored sprays sputtered to stick logos of Loved!
Tapes flew & grew, to reach the heart & Kiss!!
Songs were sung, which reached the sun till they echoed!
Hearts sprung & spun rhythmically.. side by side
Beating the chorus feelings ” Love! Joy! Love! Joy!”
Souls & souls wed, where differences run and hide!!

A day of celebration which indeed made me cry!

Skies smiled, rivers danced…
Trees gave blossoms of compassion!!
Squirrels jumped, birds romanced..
All to give oneness n true affection!!

Accepting the self, feeling of self!
To cherish us Thunders of Freedom,to make us all ONE! ONE! ONE!
Scar the Heart Permanently of today’s exploding gentle CELEBRATION!
