Looking Forward to the future

Then I thought, afraid of the ‘un’ that the certainty was
The fears lurked like shadows of the past and future merged
The hope shrank, melted like an ice cream amidst the cold winds
The bon fire shook by the blizzards of terror
The external silence
Disguised the internal chaos
Not a moment of peace
Not a moment of calm
The ravage spoke for itself
And then the notes of tabla were heard
Dissolved amidst violin, sitar and a shehnai
The notes hummed a hope
With lyrics that entered the soul
Like magic I rose
Beckoning the future
To open the wings
Which gained strength in this endurance
The heart, the mind joined hands and head
Embracing that which was there……peace
The lamp became warmer………..hope
The path still has the ‘un’ in the clear
Yet the spring doesn’t looks far away

What kept these words alive in this poem…the song SwadesJ

Happy New Year 2015 pals!

Love~ Aakriti
