The Saturday Symphony #5

Hi guys, welcome to the 5th edition of The Saturday Symphony.
I’m glad you are all well enough to read this.
And I pray you get even better.

First, here’s something for your thoughts;

The comforts of darkness,
Away from candlewick hopes
and lamplit terrors.
Shading starlight dreams
and sunrise burdens
That void!
Devoid of bliss
Empty but rejuvenating.
Sometimes we need an escape
Sometimes we need the darkness.

This week’s three featured posts

  1. Discover by Punamsumptuously written with a consuming and eloquent depth.
  2. Prism by Christinedeeply unveiling and revealing.
  3. Magnification by The Lexiconif there’s such a thing as ” both subtle and mind-blowing,” this is that.

  5. Thank you so much, Jude for including my post. Deeply touched as well as honoured by your gesture.

    Escaping into darkness…what a beautiful thought. Sometimes even a flicker of light can be blinding.

    I think I had written something on Taj Mahal many moons ago. Will share the link in a while.
