*Topic: Write a poem based the following photo prompt.


Sailing alone, far from the shore, towards the high and mad sea 

A melancholy strain touches my eye; I feel a sense of qui vive

I see sun sloped down the clouds; brilliant brightness of the sky going pale
I hear the silence raspy requiem, Singing in the sky

I see no nightingale. There is stillness in the air

the whirling wind has suddenly given his frown 

The sanity of the sky comes to a standstill

As if it would take years to reach down 

The arid arena shows no signs of life 

as if waiting for a stirring storm 

I see no bird or beast pass by; the bluntness beyond any norm 

Bones infested with growing fear, realization gives me a serpent kiss 

Till now under a spotless cloud of ignorance, I was asking for bliss. 

Once free from manacles of birth, the beauty in beauty never wanes 

No bed is warmer than grave; without mutual acceptance love is vain. 

Every things that are and were, now just waves on eternal time flow 

One by one everyone bids us; fades away like a mere shadow. 

Has the fate decreed this as inevitable, or this pain is just my pleasure’s loan?

Sailing and fighting what continues to hound, even my reflection do I own? 
Redemption is what I need, is this a revelation of something else?

Or is it my misanthropic mind, that hates, loathes and repels...
