Sitting in lotus position,
I close my eyes
Let myself drown and then float gently
On the soothing meditation music
I slowly travel to a distant land
Where harmony and beatitude exist.
I see a carpet of verdant grass
Yellow and pink blooms
Whimsical butterflies dancing around
I notice a girl; wind in her hair
Her laughter uninhibited
As she followed the butterflies,
Chasing them until she is tired.
Holding her belly, she then lies down
On the lush green meadow.
Glowing with contentment and gratitude,
She gives me a radiant, genuine smile
I open my eyes with a smile
As I softly realize I saw myself
In a parallel world,
Brimming with inner peace and happiness.
Linking this poem with Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Vision
When I saw the prompt 'vision', so many things came in my mind. I definitely want to be a very successful writer and fulfill all my dreams. I want to travel a lot and do social work. And there are so many other things that I aspire to achieve. But first of all, I would want to be a person made of inner peace and inner happiness who can spread peace and happiness all around her.
One of my resolutions for 2017 is to do yoga and meditation regularly. This poem is inspired from my visions during meditation and the picture is from my trip to a spiritual destination of West Bengal, Mayapur in 2016. When I was in Mayapur for 2 days, I experienced a lot of inner peace. So, I thought this picture would be apt for the poem.
