Yet again
Dawn breaks;
morning chores and life continues
on its mundane path
Like a drop that splatters from a tap
and slowly fills the bucket to the brim,
life overwhelms throughout the day

Yet Again
Dusk leads 
into the night
life slips like sand in a closed fist

Yet again 
the wheel of life continues 
making circles, hovering around
at the same point

Yet again
an effort to break from the 
shackles of monotony and to
appreciate the throbbing life within

Yet again 
see the inherent beauty of -
the Sun that has warmth
a flower that blooms
wind that blows 
stars that shine,
Planet that sustains

Yet again
realize that life is
blessing of the multiverse
born out of nothingness
that takes form and shape

Yet again
the earth spins and revolves
like the dance of life!
Tune into that experience -
make it special,
again and again

  1. 'Yet again' keeps the cycle revolving to each verse - I liked the rhythm that turns with it too

  2. It made me think of the spiral quality life often has. And it is our choice to spiral inwards or outwards.

  3. It is always so very special to acknowledge this blessing of existence. A gratifying verse, Kislaya!

  4. Seeing the beauty elevates us beyond the mundane. I like the way you expressed this.

    1. The reason for existence itself is something to ponder about, which brings clarity to other aspects, and lets us see the beauty in all that exists!
      Thanks Sherry!

  5. Beautiful writing!❤️ Especially like; "Dusk leads into the night life slips like sand in a closed fist."

  6. Love the use of repetition here... to see that beauty is what makes life worth living.

    1. That we exist on this planet is the biggest reason to make our life worthwhile.
      Thanks Bjorn :)

  7. I like the repetition in this. It works well.

  8. Welcome to round 24 !
    Nice to may welcome you again!

    And again…. life 'just' goes on

  9. You’ve used repetition to great effect in this poem, Kislaya, to convey the monotony of the day-to-day alongside the beauty and ephemeral quality of life. I like the lines:
    ‘Dusk leads
    into the night
    life slips like sand in a closed fist’.

    1. Yes Kim! Life's beauty comes from its ephemeral nature...all the more reason to be thankful - to be born, to be alive and experience the world.
