Vidisha Kaushik describes herself as a chronic over-thinker who loves writing, music, photography, and exploring all the subtle nuances of her artistic side. A perfectionist who always ends up following her heart.
Please enjoy her winning entry in OWAQ’16, Ethereal.
Scorching rays bestowed by the sun
A crowning jewel on the horizon.
Its motional whisk, so illuminating
An artist’s mosaic, truly befitting.
The balmy dawn makes way for a breezy noon
Toasting the encrusted terrain too soon.
Painting the sky with shades of yellow
Softened glaze, so bright and mellow.
Myriad hues and earthy aromas
Environing the senses, a mystic panorama.
Lights of dusk so piquantly colorful
Could it ever appear more beautiful?
Nocturnal notes of twinkling stars
Capturing the essence of a celestial that’s far.
Subtle, moonlit sky so clear
Beyond our grasp- enigmatic and ethereal.
#1 The enigmatic depiction of writer’s thought is nice. It does make one dream away.
#2 Balanced tone although feels like eating butter! Good attempt with metaphors, but couldn’t connect because of too much of description and no feelings.
#3 Enchanting, yet monotonous. Use of some metaphors and a perspective other than that of human eyes would have been better.
