Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

Shadow Dreams

One night I dreamed, I was walking with you on the green grass
Many little stories you shared in your continuous chatter,
In each story you held my hand,
Or maybe it was I, who held yours.

I could never tell the difference but I recall, each time,
You heard a sound you were unfamiliar with,
Or saw a bug or a bee wander too close,
You raised your arms and I picked you up.

Years from now as I will read this, I will wonder though of one thing,
No matter how pretty our shoes and how straight our gait,
It wasn’t I who took that first step,
No it was you, my darling child,
… and I just followed along.

 

 

( When shadows tell a tale, you have to pause and listen, even if it is only in a dream. The words were inspired by Mary Stevenson’s famous Footprints)

Author: Yours Truly, Pritha

Professionally have I OD'd on OD ( organizational development ) for over a decade and more . Personally, I am all about making the mundane a wee bit more meaningful and of course a lot more fun in the process. In the course, of course, I very often fall flat on my face, but the joy of getting up makes it worth the "trip" ! Visit, explore, and do write back what you thought, and why you will come back again or never ever; either way I am grateful you dropped by ! Am quite a scatterbrain which is synonymous with being a Saggittarian, so don't take me too seriously; I try not to :) on most of my sensible days. On "other" days, I have more than enough very very well meaning well wishers, who do that for me and land me safely back to earth ! What would I do without them I wonder ? And then I pause, and I often ponder. For all the times I haven't let them be, How on earth would they feel, they were saner than me? Arguably and not so humbly yours... Pritha PS: And yes.. a new mom at 41 is my new identity and I am writing a new chapter with my little girl one gurgle at a time...
