The blue flame

The blue flame burns in thunderous, loud storms –
Oasis of peace in favelas – towns
Cacophonous with mockery and clowns
It’s silence that stays through unrest – its swarms

To think and clutter has become our norms
We can’t stop and breathe; we are verbs and nouns
Forever fighting, warring with sick frowns
The constantly stung busy bee conforms!

Breathe my tired friend; look deep within your soul
There you’ll find seeds of peace inherited
Let blue engulf, empower red and stay
You’ll soon discharge calm and be – strong and whole
You’ll soon recover gold discredited
The blue flame that burns will guide your quiet way.

    1. Yes. It happens to be my favourite colour too. Blue also stands for tranquility in the midst of all the chaos. And I aspire for a more gentle, kinder Nitin who embodies it. Thank you Betty and yes, I am healing (albeit slowly).
