Decluttering

Both heart and mind
start getting choked
when a cyclone brews
in the otherwise calm centre
of the heart,
waves of despair start throwing
out everything
that floats up and down
here and there
like dry discarded leaves
of plants planted with care
along with pretty petals
of the fragrant flowers
once decorated with a purpose


But the turbulence
that causes the disruption
calms down and goes away finally
and the same heart finds
a small boat with a rope
and starts picking up
what have been so left out
to carry the same to the boat


The journey from calmness
to calmness comes to an end,
and a new beginning
waits in the wings
to flutter in the wind
with less baggage
and more space,
the nature finds its own way
to declutter
and to connect the dots…

      1. You’re most welcome my friend. Can you do me a favor and see if I you see my last post on the Anthology Wounds I heal in your feed? It’s still not coming up after a second try of re-publishing . 💖🙏 To say it’s frustrating is an understatement!
