Shanti

New Zealand

I'm from India and New Zealand. Writing and reading give me hope. I believe in spontaneous cartwheels, forgiveness, and blank pages.

I'm trying to love soft uncertainty
when she approaches me at twilight
begging for a kiss

I'm trying to forgive brisk decision
when he pounces at dawn
asking for a good reason

I'm trying to embrace stern routine
when they compel me to places I wish I didn't want to be
noon coalescent and far too patient

I'm trying to laugh at relentless anxiety
when he frays the edges I'd forgotton about
horizon lightening like dusk

I'm trying to live with my arrogant reflection
blowing kisses from the edges of a mirror
less teachable than she would like to be
