A Frozen Moment

A Frozen Moment

A Poem by Arabdha
"

there are times when you feel bliss,beauty and serenity all wrapped into one single moment..nothing extravagant..just an ordinary everyday moment..you close your eyes and experience perfection..

"
Time stops and the moment stands frozen..
a gentle calm enthralling a tumultuous present..

everything fuses..
as if all were one..
one vivid phenomenon encompassing all of life's myriad hues..

The moment,the serenity seems surreal..
for how can life's agile motion be brought to a standstill !
Yet time's clock has seemingly forgotten to tick..
And this moment seems to linger..
Its mesmerizing and austere..
A beautiful sojourn..
A revelation in life's reverberation..

I close my eyes and its so easy
to get lost in the surreal aura..
To forget the past and the present..
just to be lost in the moment..

But alas! I'm jolted back and the clock is ticking again..
The moment is gone..
So much for ethereal beauty..
joyful,happy and yet so transient..

..a beautiful episode in time's timeless domain..

I like when these moments occur and there is no time, there is nothing accept for that moment in time that stretches across multiple moments into one. Your description is perfect in capturing this and how we feel while in the middle of it. Not many things life gives us moments like this. Excellent write and play with words and descriptions.

Brilliant. You capture the moment to perfection. Surely a moment shared ny all sentient beings at some time? You should be really proud of this.

Time is one of my obsessions in writing - and capturing the PERFECT MOMENT - well.. it seems you're after the same thing I am. At least in this write you are, and I absolutely love how you've captured this moment so perfectly. This is an immediate favorite of mine - and once rested I will revisit your other writings, fantastic !

I love the musings in this piece - the questions and meanderings - "for how can life's agile motion be brought to a standstill" - lots of great imagery and phrases! well written! nice!

I know this feeling! Clock seems to stop for a while like you need not to hurry for anything. It gives us the opportunity to enjoy what we have at the moment. But ofcourse, clock has to tick again to give us another beautiful moment to share with others :)

Wonderful writing!

DEAR Arabda, thank you for inviting me to read and enjoy your poems. This poem reveals the unknown places we all carry in our soul. The only change I would make is to drop the last stanza "But alas.......transient..." and end with the last line as it is with: "time's timeless domain..." peace, Gisele
