My Poem - Spirit of Life

Background : This poem is inspired by the painting "At the close of a joyful day" by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. In the painting, after a joyful day, when the sun is about to set, a person standing at the seashore is observing the waves and is looking into the horizon. I believe this also depicts our mental state in these times of unprecedented challenges, anticipating a bright future ahead.

Spirit of Life 
                       By Raveesh Kumar

Like a high tide in the sea
It's a momentary joy!
Though the sea gone silent since
But the mind has its essence!

Will this day return again
With those wonderful moments
As the white in the marble shining in glow
and the sparkling sunshine subduing the blue!

If change is the only constant
Joy and sorrow take their turn!
Spirit of life remains high
After the times of sigh!
