Komorebi


 I came across this beautiful Japanese word last night. Something about it, compelled the writer in me to pen few lines. 

I visualised it in how aptly it describes life. When we are surrounded in the thick of things. A dark foliage of darkness. Mossy thoughts, murky feelings. Swamped in the quicksand of negativity. There’s sometimes no respite. There’s no soul in this world, Who has not known inexplicable pain. Life is a challenge, a continuous test. Yet the beauty is to fight it . To emerge a winner. Stay triumphant in your achievements.

This word made me visualise the sunshine. The beautiful, softness of rays. The gentle touch of it on my being. I discovered that sunshine my writing. My poems a constant ray of sparkling  hope.

Each morning when I write my poems, it gives me the same joy of basking in fresh ,glimmering , glistening sun’s rays.

The other thing which keeps me going is being there for others. When a despaired soul calls out to you in his or her time of need. Just lending your presence.

A tiny part of me left in each’s heart, soul and spirit.

A legacy like the rays of sunshine,

I would love to leave,

In each’s midst,

Long after I am gone!
