The Poem

 

The poem

lures me

through

a narrow

uncertain path.

As I walk

the corridor,

my mind

unravels

like a lotus

blooming

at midnight.

A small

window

of opportunity

surprises me,

opening up

in fragrant

and colorful

petals,

only for a second

then it fades.

I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.

    Well said.

    • That’s why practicing mindfulness is so important.

      • Absolutely… I watched a Ted talk earlier and even with scientific research methodology they are now able to show how mindfulness is so critical to lessen anxiety and increase efficiency… basically how to maintain the better part of oneself even in the most dire of times..

      • Good information, thanks Taruna.
