NaPoWriMo Day 22: Illuminated Soul

Walking across leaf strewn lanes

the wind blows a soft gentle breeze

humming tunes as it clashed

with tree filled leaves.

Along the journey a leaflet is carried

on the shoulders of the wind

and planted in my path

Curious, I catch it and sit on a park bench

And read:-

When I was born, all hope was gone

Even before I rose, I was ignored

Love there was not for my little soul

And so I stayed for long in that mode.


Then one day, light dawned upon me

The light that grew within me

Surrounded me whole and covered me

Like iron doors

Illuminated in my own light, I realised

The hope and love I seek is inside

Inside of my own beating heart.”


In response to the prompt for Day 7.
