check the schedule before you fly

a quiet melancholy, a shameful secret.. i hide from the world at large. the covers pulled upto my peepers, i squint at the fog drenched branches outside...where is the clarity of my mind; the yummy tartness of my thoughts... i need something which is outside of me... but the outside is the everchanging vast ephemeral shape, at times scary and sometimes confounding. i search for words, perhaps they might point the way... but there are so many things i am afraid to speak aloud...



time for coffee...

It is anever changing world we live in. I think sometimes, it's best to stay under the covers!! Another outstanding poem!!

Hi Gulnaz!

How are you doing? I've been away too long.

Rich images and feelings here.
love certain phrases like "the covers pulled up to my peepers" and especially "the yummy tartness of my thoughts"

The clarity of your mind lies in these very words you penned down....let them wash over you like a big wave..they will Insha Allah lead you to a safe shore.

Gulnaz, thank you for your wonderful comment for my great-neice. She's been having some confidence issues in her English class.

the world is a rapidly changing place, scary , sometimes exciting, mostly making you want to hide under the covers, but not for long.
enjoy that coffee, perhaps with some decadent chocolate cake. :)

welcome to the dark side ..
we have cookies

and maybe we can get surreality to visit too sometimes...

and I hope all those unsaid things are at least been written down..
then that tangy flavor will be retained if ever lost...

cheers

i love the surprising transition at the end.

piercing the veil- sound advice, thanks :)

pat paulk - it breaks my heart to see kids having confidence issues, i had them myself as a child but you know what to have a supportive and encouraging adult around really does help with that.

african fragments - mmm... i love the word decadence :)

the hermit of wandering thoughts- its a pleasure to welcome the hermit... :)

cj - aww thanks!! honestly it does seem confusing and confounding at times!

illyria- :) thanks sweetie!
