Serenity
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
 

Apprehensive, grim
anxious, provoked
before retreating
earnestly invoke
the spirit of tranquility
adorned as Serenity

Her arrival proclaims
a sanguine calm
initiating intimacy
with caring warmth
Serenity transforms
into a soothing charm 

Undressing the Vexed
layer after layer
      of nefarious plots
      terrible thoughts
      panicked anxieties
      troubling worries
      brutes and monsters
      lurking in disguise
Serenity empowered  
consigns the rascals
to a certain thrash
as an unwanted trash

Melodiously singing
with teasing interludes
she lovingly embraces
envelopes and engages
stroking the Vexed deep
into an unruffled sleep

Sounds simple, yet introspect
in the commotion and fanfare
Anger, malice, and protest
occur almost as a daily affair
while vital arrival of Serenity
is, alas, predominantly rare

Restrain thus the conflicting mind
face squarely life’s daily grind
with courage, resilience, and grace
disallowing mystic Serenity to efface

Comment Life is full of problems indeed. With knowledge and experience we attain wisdom and that only can bring clarity to mind to face difficulties and
Complexities in daily activities in life leading to serenity of mind to take correct route to our destiny of our dream. In this respect literature, history and meditation in Nature help much all!

Comment It is like the legendry tales
of lovers never to be together.
each living and dying with
the burden of their own cross.
Halleluiah

Comment Serenity is associated with royalty. The word implies power over all that would cause disturbance. Thus, 'Her Serene Majesty…' The quality of serenity in ordinary folk is an unruffled manner, whereby the mind is focused on a state of peace, loosened from the impulses of pride and aggression. Peace is a synonym for serenity. Jesus said, 'Peace be with you' in greeting. He used the same word to calm the storm: 'Peace, be still.' Serenity implies acceptance especially in trials and tribulation, and a cessation of the clamour of the world, which to the world is boredom and death. Let Jesus have the last word on serenity He endows on those with faith in Him, 'the peace that passeth understanding.' Here we return to royalty, the Divine, whose peaceful sway surpasses all understanding.
