The sleeping serpent Lays coiled, dormant On the red earth, Self-preserving. Not for long…….. She lifts her head Fluidly, gracefully Wades through the Orange aqua Rests on the plexus Burning with Desire Of higher consciousness…. Centering herself, She leaps in air, Over the green pastures Towards the Blue sound Shuddering with Heightened self-expression
Out off the dark towards Light, guided by intuition Until she breaks free Of all thoughts. The Vibgyor mergers Into White of Enlightenment As she rests peacefully on the Thousand petaled Lotus.
-Janaki Nagaraj Janaki Nagaraj is an emerging writer who is a graduate in English Literature yet, she did not discover her passion for writing till a couple of years back. More than writing a prose, she found it easier to express herself through poetry. She is a full time homemaker and mother of two teens (that should say a lot about her patience) and lives in Mumbai.
