It's Spring-
Wafting music
And fragrance
In the warm air.

Only on the outside.

I wait, like the
Selfish Giant,
for Spring to visit-
My heart;

I wait, for the
Benediction of
A loving thought
that I know
will come.

I'll wait;
For Spring
will not deny me.


I believe.

  1. A lovely poem, Usha :)

    not been here for a the others too...good ones :)


  2. that was very encouraging. love the self belief! :)

    i'll wait, for spring will not deny me, cannot. for i believe...

    its beautifully said usha ma'm! :)

  3. Waiting for an instance is perhaps one of the most defining part of our lives, isnt it? We know we will pass the instance, but even then we wait!

    Anticipation!!!! For the many things to happen!

  4. from despair to belief in a heartbeat..:)and thats the beauty of it..
    and then I think no,it cannot simply be called a belief..
    It is a stuuborn refusal to accept anything less than what the heart it not?:)

    And so with such a stong conviction,how can Spring deny you indeed?

    ''I'll wait;
    For Spring
    will not deny me.


    I believe.''

    I believe too:)

    ((hugs):) for all the dreams and the fierce beliefs that do come true,will come true... that you share here:)

    Spring..and your words ..a beautiful combination:)

  5. spring will surely shower loads and loads of loveliness all around :)

  6. I believe... :)
    simply touching!

  7. Devika, thank you :)

    Vinay, thank you too :)

    Rakesh, you put it across so well. Indeed, the wait, the longing, is what defines one's life at so many points in existence, and as you say, though we do know, we still wait :) Thank you for the visit and for sharing that:)

    Meg, A stubborn refusal to accept anything less than that, indeed is the heart of the write. How beautifully you too have captured it; in a similar vein, but a more passionate one, to Rakesh's observation too! Thank you, thank you thank you :) I like the strength of your belief too, and how it spreads from those words to the heart! Thanks!!!

    Praveen, I do hope so too, for everyone :) Thank you!!

    Sanket, thank you, so very much!

  8. Usha,
    It is spring here in US and believe me, it is truly a beautiful sight.
    "Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.” - Doug Larson.

  9. I think I needed to hear this after the Rabbit Hole of expectations is taking me to a unknown territory, of unknown outsomes!

    This instils belief back in its place. Hopefully it is not misplaced :)

  10. As they say, when winter's here, can spring be far behind? :)

    Belief and hope count so much in our lives. Beautiful post ma'am...

    Guess who's back? No cookies for correct guesses... ;)

    Peace. Be well.

  11. Hi, i am in transit and will get back to regular blogging after a few days.

  12. Beautuful....may the spring visit u soon n the "Quest..." be filled with lots f evrnew flowers...!!

  13. Beautiful..
    waiting patiently is wisdom.nature teaches us that..could feel the longing of a seed...of a seasonal that dark cloud just before breaking a silent stadium experiencing the 89th minute..

  14. I am not very poetically inclined, but cannot pass such divine words, "I believe", because that is all there is to life and living.

  15. 'Spring will not deny me'! How wonderfully expressed Usha!

  16. lovely the way you ended it
