... be living believing...


When I am here, I thought I am here
and my muse wandered back home, there,
and then I thought I am there;
I am a float, and I wander.
My identity being a question... but sure
I am only a zephyr! And when I stay
I am labelled and my heart still stray
to every beginning and end I hold
in memory - the kaleidoscope I hold
close to my vision and believe where
all my colours are scattered and where
they hold illusions dear to  me, sure
I am only a zephyr, a cipher
that always is there, with no end!
And I love myself being ‘none’
with many dream like memories
floating through me... 
and nothing to lose,
I love being a sweet zephyr!

  3. Ahh.... being as light as air, so that you are neither, here, nor there but everywhere. Beautiful. When we 'find' our peace within, it is a beautiful thing, isn't it.
    This is a truly lovely piece Sreeja.

  5. A little sad to me to think of the split into many places, but in the moments that I have felt some of that experience coming through me for a poem or other cause, I too am grateful. Your poem made me look at this phenomenon again--thank you. I love it!

  6. Really enjoyed this! Especially this part:

    my heart still stray
    to every beginning and end I hold
    in memory - the kaleidoscope I hold
    close to my vision and believe where
    all my colours are scattered and where
    they hold illusions dear to me

    Loved the kaleidoscope scattering the colours and holding illusions dear to you...really well done! :-)

    Thank you for joining in the dance with me, too!
