En Voyage Into Thirties

By Dr. Priyasha Panda

As I lie down

in the lap of this December,

My heart throbs with epiphanies,

when Thirty whole pages rewind their grace;

Time lands me

in my Thirties,

here I am living my dreams,

where fulfilment hugs me with pride,

and life is in full bloom,


a silent terror of juggles

sings a whole different story.

Loaded with a heavy crown,

I breathe clumsily,

realising how stuck I am

between my choices and priorities,

In a twisted wonderland of Destiny;

Yet catching up with uncertain pace

is like a house of cards, I am trying to build,

With all hope and faith.

The little vibrant things of love

Seem to be vanishing into the oblivion;

And I wonder,

How working like a machine

Can define the rest of my life!

This prickly thought is a cacophony,

Disturbing my sleep every night.

Perhaps, Thirties and its glorious days

are like waves which has not yet found the shore,

the drooping shoulders,

the humbling heart,

being a coconut shell

or sometimes a downpour

is a gift of change,

in our hunt for Stillness.

Ah! Joyful and Hopeful January

May you unshield your weapon of Courage

into my Thirties,

as I move ahead, filling the rest of the pages.
