Aurora & Avalanche

Avalanche of thoughts
flooding and tossing
in the cold valley of mind.
It attacks by uneven edges
in all seasons insensitively.

A sincere wish
to silence this tumultuous
I sought refuge for an arena
where thoughts hardly exist.
The strongest desire made me fall
onto the lap of gentle aurora.
The delicate calmness sucked
coldness of deafening clamour.

A soothing sensation
I felt never before.
Unattached completely
from everything, everyone
I experienced some lightness.
The light and joy was beyond words.

I could feel invisible wings
taking me to higher levels
on the wings of aurora.
The tranquillity led me
to fireworks of blissful moments.

I wish to remain there forever
While making it as my abode…!
