Clearer

By Meher Gandhi

I felt a change.
Almost as if I could see it,
In the way the leaves fall,
And the way the rays strike all.

The leaves, magnificent how they give way,
To their majestic fall,
Almost as if in happy resignation,
To the new green, the reincarnation.

The rays, how royal is their golden glow!
Strike both the high and low,
Make clear every ripple in the seas,
The ones that brighten even the tiniest bees.

I felt a change,
Now, I see a bit clearer.
The squirrels that run a bit nearer,
And the ants that climb without fear.

The playful squirrels,
Which would rather jump and ride,
Than attack and bite,
And those which wouldn’t dare sit tight.

The determined ants,
Which do not get shook,
With any fall or climb.
Meticulous as they are, all the time.

Seeing deeper, I notice every movement.
Of all things bright and dull.
Oh, I see everything in this moment,
How is it I never saw any better?

Is it because I have time,
Or has time slowed to let it all sink in?
But no, the runner doesn’t stop ticking,
And no, I certainly do not have spare time.

Maybe, I owe the extra vigilance,
To this sheet which is white as snow.
My craving to blot it with ink,
Led me to see a bit deeper even in the afterglow.

Finally, I am thinking of something,
Other than schedules and work,
And the shines and bling,
Something, Iโ€™ve never felt before.

Maybe it’s always like this,
You get struck with something,
When you probably expect nothing.
In this moment, I find bliss.

'The Cruel Prince' by Holly Black if one of the (many) books on my TBR list. While the world seems to be crazy about this one and talking about it nonstop, I haven't read it. But, I really do want to! I've heard so many good things about this book and I want to dive into it. All I really know about this book is that it is a fantasy novel which revolves around the life of Jude who is trying to fit in with the faeries who might even despise hee because she is a mortal human. And that's literally all I know. Oh, and I know that this is the first book in the series The Folk Of The Air. Have you read this book? Are you planning to? Let me know in the comments section below! Also, I recently wrote a poem! It's up on my blog! Check it out and let me know what you think! Link in bio. Would love to hear from you! _________________________________________ ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #colours #color #yellow #lighting #books #reader #reading #amreading #amblogging #blogger #blogs #bookblogger #bookblog #bookreviewer #bookish #bookishlove #booknerd #booklove #bookgram #bookgeek #booklover #bookaholic #bookcollection #amwriting #flowers #bookcover #bookphotography #photography

Hello to all the readers and writers out here! I am Meher Gandhi. I am a dreamer and a wanderer, dreaming of a world made of words and wandering in a land of my own scribblings. I am constantly scribbling my reveries and all the secrets I unearth while living, sometimes itโ€™s on paper, most of the times, itโ€™s mental notes. WordPress is a great platform to showcase the art of writing be it on the spot or else. I am loving this work of writing blogs, reading your blogs, commenting on them, receiving the likes, comments and valuable suggestions. It is all so fun! I am a teenager who loves to read and write. I am a positive person and so are my scribblings. If you want to connect with me then, head over to the contact page in the โ€œmy pagesโ€ section! Would you like to join me in for a walk in my land of scribblings? With love, Meher.

  1. To see the โ€œunseenโ€
    To feel the โ€œnothingโ€
    To read the โ€œblank sheetโ€
    Makes you so โ€œdiscreet!โ€
    So proud of you, you follow your own creedโค๏ธ

    Finding these little moments is something that amazes me. The weird thing is they happen all the time I just am not always looking for them.

    Love this thanks for sharing
