Time and Perspectives – 2005

I have just turned 35 and am about to start a new chapter in this life in rhymes of mine. I am afraid, excited, nostalgic… Most of all, I am delighted that I get to bring you all along with me, my fellow poetry lovers, as we continue to share this space; to wander together this world of wonders and wild words. ❤


Here I stand,
At the edge of this exotic and exciting cliff,
Where the turning point
Becomes the point of no return.
Behind me:
Turned pages,
Aged faces,
Names of ghosts,
Smiles frozen in dusty pictures,
Forever printed on my mind…

Detached? Am I?
Would I ever be?
Do I need to be?
Do I want to?
Moving on
Doesn’t mean locking past doors…
Or does it?

Here I am,
Facing an open future,
As these thoughts shake my world…
If only I could see beyond,
Far beyond the cloudy mountains…

There are only two ways out of here:
Descending back,
Towards a past that has long ceased to exist
Or moving forward,
Flying and falling and fighting and failing and
Flying and falling and flowing…
And flowers…

Here I go,
In search of the unknown,
Turning on the lights as I move,
Rediscovering, reinventing,
Recognizing myself.
On this journey,
I carry a bag full of marks and memories
And another filled with wishes and wonders.
Every now and then,
I let go of everything and surrender.
I extend my hand
And I find life, love, and laughter.
