How can something so subtle

Yet can never be unfelt

Contagion, affecting one at time

Slow but delicately enduring

A billion cells and a bit of patience

It’s a bit too late for realizations

What once was a drizzle

Now a flooding outpour

Gradual, wondrous

Like how each note is played

On black and white keys

As if sonatas thoroughly

Confided with the melody

Notes gladly swayed rhythmically

Simple, majestic, elegant

You’ve forgotten how intricate

The piece was- while making

Blown away yet grounded

Taken to another place

However still quite attentive

Unnoticed, because it was

Like the motion of dualities

Upon opposite trajectories

Finally finding synchronicity

Like how the blades of leaves

Gently brush your fingertips

Oh how it calms our being

As if a mighty river hushed

Upon the entrance of a still lake

Like a ship on rough seas

Sailing to seduce the waves

To a calmer surrender

The smell of luscious aroma

Filling your nose

Soothing your head

As if the sun had finally risen

Taking its rightful place in the sky

Ebbing through the tides of the ocean

Glimmering in a picture perfect sunset

A war of colors

A painter’s paradise

An awaiting canvass

A timer signaling

The mellow draw of night

Stars blazing reduced to glimpses

Sparkling sprinkled dust

Oh such beauty

Set in timeless perpetual motion

Entwined in a graceful dance

Of the rising and falling

Oh dearest,

Tender as you may seem

Vulnerable yet beaconing

So subtle

Yet can never be unfelt

Is this

Tranquility at its finest..
