The Golden Light

                                                --- Bhavna Khemlani

Like a garland of beaming light

brief and wild

living mural of persistence

true little Dandelion

starlet – yellow - during Autumn

inspired golden hour before dusk

How can we keep the synergy alive?

where we pluck, full of joy, we found

a reward in the breezy times

yellow circles burst

lighting up the inner child

delicate yet maturing

versatile climbers of life

filling the gaps between bridges

without being loud or angry

it’s whose fault

that we all seek rays of the golden light

enveloping the darkness subtly

crumbling the illusions

sleepy senses come alive

that the strong wind

disperses the feathery soft bristles

carrying a legend for new growth

opportunity as we learn – we can

also blow all the seeds of a dandelion

with a single breath making a wish

that the golden hour appears in everyone’s life

where no such chaos is dispersed but

we can learn to keep the synergy alive

bright and yellow

humble yet surprising

the warmth and power

within – The Golden Light
