Blessings ~ In Disguise
      ____________----_____________________________________________

              
In solitude ~ beneath vast sky,
         
        rippled water unto me, called.
            
        I washed away my tears near dry,
               
         as, soon, the ocean waves, too, stalled.

                   
         My pale-blue, shivering lips sighed,
                     
         'Oh, what mysteries life unfolds...'
                        
         the summer breeze smiled in its stride,
                           
         warm as could, tingled my skin cold.

                              
        While brushed across a rainbow arc,
                               
        shining bright with so soft a grace,
                                      upon earth it left a dimpled mark;
                                      all else seemed to fall ~ back in place.

                            
         As sudden, life's curtains were drawn;
                         
          a frightening, yet, wonderful
                      
            thoughts plethora'd, beckoned new dawn;
                    
           enticed, could not ignore such pull.

              
           
A colourless canvas before
           
          splattered with paint; my eager eyes
         
          
grazed the sky for winter galore ...
               what's unknown ~ blessings in disguise.

if i am reading this right...she stands ready to give up her life to the waves but has a moment of realization ...and the brand new day is waiting for her painters' hand to make of it what it can ... regardless whether correct or not...that is what i draw from this...the form suites you i think and i love the shout out you give to Richard in shaping a curve ... that and the color is pleasing just to look at
rhymes and rhythm ae natural and easy ..even the " plethora'd," line ;) the word is perfect says i! i feel the lonliness of your speakers heart ..and the sense of tragedy to come in her pale blue lips .. an optimist .. i am grateful she seems to have chosen one more incredible and present day living :)))))))) in case you can not tell...sure enjoyed the read and a beautiful emotive scene given

Ahh, just saw this...! Thank you so much for appreciating, Ken :)
This is absolutely gorgeous! Beautifully penned.
Reminds me of Lord Byron's poetry. If words could paint would make a lovely canvas.

Thank you so much for your lovely words and for appreciating. Glad you like it :)
Goodness, Doc!
It's as though you've matched the gentle curve of surf washing softly ashore upon the beach … and, what tender sentiments your perfect meter and rhymes flow from your mind and heart, through your words, deep into our own.
Sweet mystery in metaphoric splendor gravitates throughout the fiber of our senses, rising-up to embrace the lush romantic warmth within our blood.
And, your soothing color and picture choices … muaahhh* Magnifique!

"Stunning imagery!"
While brushed across a rainbow arc,
shining bright with so soft a grace,
upon earth it left a dimpled mark;
all else seemed to fall ~ back in place.

Is there a form, Yumna, you cannot learn and excel in to captivate and entertain us with, so beautifully?
I've, yet, to find one … though, the Sonnet awaits!
Gorgeous work, Dear Lady-Poet … KUDOS, I love it! ⁓ Richard 🏝

How I love the curve of your shoreline... waves of words so eloquently washing over the mind and heart. The picture is gorgeous and your thoughts are divine. There is both the pain of tears and the cleansing of seasons in your soul, and those blessings, ever so hidden, waiting to be discovered. May it be, dear poet.
