Taking baby steps…

NaPoWriMo 21

 A leap perhaps

Would have soaked

Each moment in that race

With a thrill

That cuts through the ordinary

To etch a golden moment of ecstasy.

And yet,

I knew that a  leap would never do.

I needed to fumble

Along the broken pathways,

Taking baby steps,

Losing and winning and losing yet again,

Till the stars came within reach.


What do you think?

A teacher and a learner - both by passion and profession. Music, cooking, reading, writing, traveling and all kind of creative stuff keep me  going . You are not likely to catch me in a crowd. Instead, you might find me taking a walk on semi dark evenings  talking to the stars or thinking
