The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman

Right Here…

It’s right here

the moments of bliss

the drops of happiness

I was searching for.


It’s in the

early morning hush

blanketing the world

while it slumbers.


It’s in the

steam curling up

on a sigh, from

my cup of coffee


It’s in the

fresh blank page

waiting expectantly

for the caress of my pencil


I see it in the

warmth of his glance

wiping away my loneliness

in an instant


I hear it in the

rhythmic cadence

of the daily chants

of my mother’s prayers


I feel it in the

tang of the sea breeze

as it wafts in

through the fluttering curtains


It’s in the

exquisite twirls of

falling leaves as they

dance to an unknown melody


It’s in the

shadows falling across

the black tarred road

on a quiet summer day


It’s right here,

in the moments

that make up

my everyday life .
