Letting Go

I freeze my fingers because
it is not the reason
why you should hold on,
I wave you goodbye
and think on your own
you may find what life is.

I do not know a bit
how fulfilling any moment
can be, but here is
the bulb that I sow
in the early spring and
the fear of winter deep within me.

Of the flowers, one of
last spring I kept them
because it was the only
surviving, but with
lesser petals by
the end of season.

Before that, I never
noticed it could be
so close, folded in a paper
in the wooden box for year long,
among its many faces who smiled
and went away all fine
in its shadow.

The years ripe again
and with little fingers
I find your way, a new one
and enjoy this circle of life
where I am baby again.

Echoes, my new poetry book

Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September.  It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.

Here is blurb at back of book:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts.  A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle.  Nature is succour.  One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.

A Poem from Echoes:

Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.
