Don’t you hear the leaves singing
endless tale of life?
To live is to know that
you have to let go sometimes.

What if they also
refuse wind’s hand and
join stubborn hearts in strike?
What will be the point of seasons,
all the moments and wasted time?

Let go, breath, forget about
the ones who left,
Fall, fly along with your heart
towards the land of abandoned joy.

Autumn taught me it’s okay to change
Sometimes, it’s must and best,
To be a tree resting in winter
instead of being a volcano to destroy.

Hello there, Kajal here! I started blogging in September, 2018. It was purely random as I needed a space to pour my heart and thoughts out. This place is like my safe heaven where I let my fingers and feelings run free to curate poems and to rant about things that are bothering my thoughts. My journey here has been bittersweet and wonderful at the same time. But because of all the love I receive here, I keep coming back to read and to write.You all have been great support and advicers to me and I'm really grateful. Your feedback, emails and comments keep the mermaid inside me going :)

Quick the feather flew
Arrow into the heart.
The country stood new.
And in the narrow,
A callow youth stood,
Contemplating manhood.
Grass-high was the boy, now tall wood.
All this and more,
And time marched true;
There was much to adore,
And much to rue.
Quick the feather flew.

You know I had the great opportunity to climb the Taal volcano in the Philippines. I thought for sure that even though it has been dormant for so many years that it would erupt once I climbed to the top. I was sadly disappointed (and relieved lol). I did close my eyes and just let it all wash over me. “I am standing at the top of a volcano.” And then I got tee-shirts and other knick knacks as that is literally the people that live at the base of the volcano’s entire livelihood. Anyway lol, autumn has always been my favorite time of year, especially growing up in northeastern Ohio. The leaves just took my breath away. Take care! I look forward to future posts that I promise not to comment on to a monumental extent, if at all lol.
