Shells of Deceit..


Written for One Single Impression


Prompt: Shells
( Thanks to Sandy Carlson)

Shells of Deceit..

ah, explosions
in my inner being;
shells of deceit..

slowly I rise
unscarred from the debris;
spirit renews

revelations
only after the attack;
lesson for life..

relationships
without false pretensions;
lighter heart and soul..

my protection;
elimination of all
non-essentials..

RS:)

  8. as usual ramesh, you offer wise words. non-essentials i find simply block the flow of blessings.

  9. Very nice, Ramesh. Wherer would we be if we didn't have the option of retreat into that shell. Or where would we be if we never left it?

  10. I just love how the layers reveal something more amazing and wonderful as we read each stanza. Another amazing poem Ramesh.
