Colouring

Remember when lines meant challenge
and colouring was not confined to
parameters, but an invitation
to explore, and days spent
contemplating invited
song, and nothing
really mattered
except the
moment?

There is a place
balanced between
the bustle of doing and
the edge of non-existence
where fantasy beckons,
where aged minds, content
with past accomplishments
come to rest, to ponder –

who once again recognize
that lines hold no significance,
that colours know no limits,
that music uplifts the mind,
and that memories are places of
exploration, and the moment
is all we ever have.

  1. “There is a place
    balanced between
    the bustle of doing and
    the edge of non-existence
    where fantasy beckons,”
    This is so quotable, I can see it on book jackets, buildings, subway walls, tenement halls…beautiful poem!

      1. PL fill up your details in the pop up. And also download your FREE ebook version of “Mann ki Aarzoo” that you are entitled to. It’ll disappear on its own. Not only that you’ll be then getting direct mails regarding contests where you can win gift vouchers

  2. Great insight. As a public school educator, I have seen how “we” tell kids to stay within the lines…so much so at about 4th grade, the creativity is lessened and a shift takes place in most “colorings”. Some creative minds survive the parameters, others…it isn’t until later in life that the confines of the lines are removed.
