Divine Abode

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 can not exist.
The strongest desire made me
fall onto the lap of delicate calmness.
It sucked the coldness of clamor
that was deafening.

A soothing sensation
I felt never before.
Unattached completely
from everything, everyone.
The sense of lightness
I experienced is beyond words.

I could feel invisible wings
taking me to higher levels 
on the shore of peaceful lake
of luxurious tranquility.
It leads to fireworks
of blissful moments.

I wish to remain there forever
while making it as my abode..!
