Most Needed Jewellery

By Sushant Thapa

PROMPT—I am grateful for ...

The day speaks of the delight

Garden of love welcomes

Another blooming flower.

A bee hovers for nectar.

That sweetness is

An elixir of contentment.

The moon was welcoming the night

With multitudes of stars it shined bright.

Forgiven are those who have

Mistaken the night for their own darkness.

There is a power in the light.

Seekers cannot go astray

They have a peaceful dwelling.

In search of a heaven

A home can be made

In the hearts of other seekers.

We all search for

A room full of contentment

Where loneliness forbids its stay.

The smile to rejuvenate is

A most needed jewellery.
