Sometimes...

a soul, seeking
hoping and yearning

a heart, longing for
love and peace

a traveler, in quest of
untread paths and fresh air

a seeker, pursuing
answers and light

she was beautifully out of place
she was magically blended in it

she was sometimes that
she was sometimes this

a palpable spirit who danced in abandon
filled with simplicity n' bliss!

Stringing the Unstrung

a chance look at
an unending stream
gushing into an ocean
awakened her
from the dormancy
she had become
so accustomed to

the wind on her skin
the smell of the ether
the sound of the waves
incited her to create
her own music
by stringing together
the strings, unstrung

Observer and I

she sits alone watching a world of her own appearing lost but she is not she wants to understand and know much more which when her 'she' is 'I' she cannot know the order, the light amidst the chaos and fright the unsolicited incite that deflect her might the illusory contours that keep her ashore the obscure metaphors that chain her to her yore the twisted crossroads that debilitate her will the monochromes, the shadows that hold her still it's then when she faces so many ‘why’s’ that she let's the Observer become the I

Journey in...

pandemonium inundated
a chaotic mind
not knowing 
where to dive
I plunged inside
a tunneled inroad
that's how it seemed
feelings interspersed 
in layers deep
as I unraveled
I was touched by
what I unearthed
a free spirit that
danced in mirth
enchanted with all
the kosher love-in
thus, began
my journey in...

Waves

beautiful, wild, mysterious n' free
were the waves that crashed in on me!

as I walked asea
from the pristine shoreline
I could see the wonders of Nature
entwined with the divine
the briny waves lapped at me
their whooshing sound quietened me
the setting sun calmed me
the flight of birds freed me

I could feel within the sensitized ME
a feeling that had long eluded me

O! what a wondrous delight the waves could be
Wish I could forever enjoy this reverie!

Reflect

I pause at times
to see my state
in a new light
when my canvas is
overflowing with the
colors of life
not, all are
the brights, and
the hues
some are shaded
with grays, too
but as the
drops of colors
burst to form shapes
I feel, a feel
that is strange yet true
that they are
a vivid expression
of all that I do, and
the choices that I make
as life passes through!

One more TIME...

she saw opportunity 
when others saw nothing
for her the impossible 
didn't exist
she took the risks 
she survived the falls
an epitome of verve
encapsulated it all
till...
an extended phase of darkness
engulfed her for so long
she was distraught
she was torn
embracing solitude 
she withdrew her wings
stoned into numbness
standing still
till...
one fine night
when she was communing 
she realized that not all was over
that there was something inside her
that held her fragile self
from disintegrating altogether

she decided to give-in her all
one more time
she wanted to face life 
with tough resolve
one last time
as if on cue
her spirit soared
she felt hopeful once more
softly, she whispered
Oh! Universe, please conspire
help me tide this over...
