Reasons and Seasons

Did I ever need reason?
Realization dawned.
Just yesterday.

When, all of a sudden
The masks fell, and
Dammed emotion
Broke its bounds.

In our million moments
Togetherness - taken for granted?
Acceptance - given, denied
Rationalized, ignored.

Do I know you?
Am I still that mystery
You claimed I was?

The hurricane of trauma
When it struck
Put us on that hurdy-gurdy
Of an endless roller-coaster ride.
Pain. How many kinds are there?
All I know is this:
Each day I find one more.

And yet.
A Blessing.
A Benediction.
Invisible, tightly bound
Strongly held,
We were pulled together-
Into the eye of the storm.

Limp, spent, exhausted
We just hold each other close.
No more words-
Only tears - each drop, gracious
Each, only ours - not yours, not mine.

It is the season of knowing
Of Thanksgiving
Of Completeness-
Finding one more piece of
Each other-
That fit, just so right.

That's reason enough.
For now.

  1. When the jigsaw pieces finally fell into place
    filling up rapidly the in between space.
    Changing the ever contorted face and the grimace;
    into something so beautiful and so full of grace.
    Running eternally in circles to find some solace
    here at last I chance upon the much needed peace.

    Usha just wonderful. Hope you will get more time to write such soul stirring verse.

  2. Govind. Sigh. Time. Never there :) So these words just force themselves out! Thanks as always, for being there to grace the rambles here! Bless you!


Thank you for stopping by to leave a note :)
