I have always had people come,

seen them make a move,

for my money and fame,

feigning love, yet

interested only in my name.

But, when I lost everything in a game,

things were no longer the same.

When lost all glory, I was no longer fun.

With everyone gone,

left all alone,

I was becoming a ghost of my former self.

I saw you one day,

chirping, fluttering and circling me,

yet, hesitant to come my way.

I threw some grains and waited,

then you alighted,

taking those small steps of uncertainty,

you fed on those grains daintily,

and took a flight hastily.

The next day when I came,

you were perched up that door frame.

I somehow saw the recognition flicker

in your eyes,

when you looked deep into mine.

I saw you take that leap of faith.

You came back to me,

Warming not only my palm,

but also my heart!

Formerly a Software professional, I have been a homemaker for a while. My life revolves around my two daughters. Having started writing only recently, I just discovered what I have been missing all along in my otherwise almost-perfect life. I want to create postive content inspiring minds across all age groups.

  1. Dear Ramaya, how do you do this? this is such a wonderful poem. I have lived with the birds for most of my life. My garden is a fully organic, wildlife paradise. They are fed all year round and the fly through the house and out through the open windows in summer, I brought many fledgelings up (like the one on my hand, Teepee.)

    1. Oh Joanna. Thank you so much.
      From what you have mentioned so far, I can see that you are one kind soul.
      You must really write a picture post on your garden, or if you already have, do share it with me.


  2. You might regret what you wish for, Ramya. I checked and you could start with ‘Spring into Summer in my garden, revised’, and Tales of Nature’, and all about Gaby, the hedgehog. And more…. I think you will like it.
