New Year's Eve

Every year past Decembers
Cold and windy months
I created moment by moment

revelries for others

While all the while
As the euphoria of countdown settles
I was dreaming to be
with loved ones

This year I do not want the fanfare
I long for the quiet moment
Of deep content and giddy happiness

bubbling inside


For the magpie tales

Happy New Year, friends and fellow travelers of the blogosphere !
I shall no longer be like the candle in the wind, creating glamour and radiance for others but not for those closest to my heart.


To the desert man
Nothing is more incomprehensible
Than the fear of drowning

In a vast ocean of water

He would rather stay grounded
On the shore
And retain his sanity

Than flee to safety.

A burst of sunlight


Drudgery weighs you down
Nothing seems to be right

Coupled with trudgery
Life, a vicious cycle

A series of misfortune

Chin up and look around
Look for the light

At the end of the tunnel
Around the bend

A burst of sunshine awaits you.
