Am I Alive..??




I looked out of my window-
The grass blades swayed.
In that Fragrant breeze..
Wonder, how did I smell that?

I stepped out into my Garden,
Birds had stopped chirping.
The moment I looked at those..
Did they see a Ghost?

I sat and mused, it wasn’t a Sunday!
That I would look forward to Ben 10.
Neither was it Saturday that I may look forward to a Sunday..
Yet, I had felt so delighted..

I turned my gaze and I could see the earth!
I picked up a stone, shaking the of whole universe!!
I tried to walk; felt floating in the air..
How could I fly?

For days my domestic didn’t turn up
There were no visitors too..
My neighbors had simply ignored my presence..
Was I no more to be treated as Human?

I heaved a sigh and thought aloud
“Why I didn’t feel the way it should..?”
I felt Divine; there were no more wounds to heal
I realized that I had died..

      Thankies Kavz.. You read each one with the exact essence.. Wonder how you do it- always..!!
      I guess Death would heal- with nothing attached to oneself, wouldn’t he feel free..
      Infact, I really wish to comeback and stay around forever—- Dark and Groovy……. 😀

      You are doing one hell of an awesome job.. Love you friend.. xox

        You are right, sweetie.. death indeed has no strings attached (now that didn’t sound too right…did it?!)
        hahahah.. I too have those thoughts about coming back and stying for good! I scare the living hell outta my dear hubby by voicing my thoughts to him.. 🙂 Oh.. how he must bear me and my crazy ideas!

        Thanks for the good word on the potluck perf, girl! Mandy and I are feeling AWESOME about it!! 😀

        Happy weekend, love…xoxox

          LOL.. I know what you mean.. I too scare the hell out of friends making them hear my “avenging” ideas.. OMG, vindictive I guess..!! 😉
          You are so very welcome- The pleasure’s all mine for the Potluck perf.. Only a fool would step out of working with such beautiful people. Life’s short, I try to make the most of it- this too was with similar thoughts- enjoying doing anything that comes around. Not many people get opportunities; most of them don’t realize even when they get one.. So, here I am- making the most of everything- To LIVE, ENJOY and MAKE AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE..
          Wishing you a beautiful weekend to you and your darling too.. 😀

          Lovies.. xoxox
