season’s greetings :)

Posted on Updated on

My lovely readers,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being a part of this space 🙂 Appreciate each and every one of you. Writing and poetry has been a sacred experience for me and if you can resonate with even a single post here, I’m humbled and grateful. As I went for a walk this beautiful morning, a realization surfaced that I thought I’d share. Three things of value that can’t be compromised – the company of loved ones, taking time to feed the soul and enjoying simple pleasures of life.

May this holiday season bring you warmth, love and all that you’re looking for.

Love and Light always,

Himani B

cold embers

on days like this
words fail me
lost without you,
my steps falter
these lips tremble
and breath hardens

‘when will you come?’ my heart cries
‘melt my frozen body
in your warm embrace
give me a reason to stay alive,
wipe tears off my face?’

I wish you could see
how I await your arrival
lost in space and time,
wandering between
the dead and the divine

and when only stillness flows
in endless motion
how I lie scattered
in a grave
on the edge
of a glowing ocean

…..

a pleasure to collaborate with an artist whose work has moved me beyond words. Thank you M for being you and the beauty you have brought into my life through your photography – http://myworldonmuteblog.wordpress.com

dear heart
should I mock you
or weep with you
such an innocent little fool you are!

in the whirlwinds of storm,
you withstood the freezing cold
in the heat of blazing fire,
you got pricked by thorns

knowing well whats coming next
you still teeter along!
with this tenderness, this strength
fearlessness and this craziness
where from?

I give you reasons
but you throw them away
I try to sit you down
but you want to break into dance and sway

ah what was whispered to you
that you’ve grown these wings
which nectar once quenched your thirst
that you run around looking for sweetness
what image do you behold
whose beauty makes you wild in ecstasy

only if someday I could trick you
into believing me
only if one day, I could show you the difference
between the black and gold
the pieces and the whole

if that day comes
would you still bother to keep beating?

tell me
would you still care to keep loving?
