Some words, like zephyr – soothing, reviving,
Swaddles the heart with redolence of Spring.
Some words, like brook – sparkling, fuelling,
Heartens the spirits with mellifluous tunes.
Some words, like shadow – frightful, menacing,
Darkens the being with ghastly nightmares.
Some words, like prison – brutal, depressing,
Torments the senses with dismal landscapes.
The notebook enswathes days and phases,
A collage of splintered moments and whole,
A testimony of resilience,
A homage to the valiant human soul.
