the journey: a poem

the clouds above me weave into a seamless white sky,
a windy road settles straight
endless and eternal
 
there is no stop, no start
only a road
gray lands enveloping it
yellow and white lines marking it
 
the power lines slowly become distant as i watch them flutter
up and down
 
my window feels cold although it shows no sign of snow
the wind sways my car and i
and when we fail to leave the path
it gives up
the wind whishing away
yet the cold does not falter
 
the turns make me sick and weak
but seeing the straight road aahead lights a flame of hope in my heart
although it starts ever so small
it grows
 
all will be better
all will be well
if i keep driving

  1. Lovely poetry, Vanshi. :) It's very reflective. I especially love the lines 'the turns make me sick and weak, but seeing the straight road ahead lights a flame'. It somehow describes the path we'll embark on this new year very soon - unpredictable turns but continuing the drive with a glimpse of hope. :)

    "there is no stop, no start only a road gray lands enveloping it yellow and white lines marking it'
    Pure beauty and rhythm. I have no words to express it, it's just marvelous.

  4. A very thought provoking poem and I think it can be interpreted in many ways. To me it symbolizes new beginnings and leaving the past behind. The arrival of 2015 and the departure from 2014.
