Moving Forward

Isn’t a good day
For writing about
I wish I hadn’t
To write about divorce
Every day.
I don’t want to be defined
By my divorce.
I don’t want
To be reminded.

~ by Mystic

Moving Forward

The deep parts of my life pour onward,
as if the river shores were opening out.
It seems that things are more like me now,
That I can see farther into paintings.
I feel closer to what language can’t reach.
With my senses, as with birds, I climb
into the windy heaven, out of the oak,
in the ponds broken off from the sky
my falling sinks, as if standing on fishes.
Rainer Maria Rilke



About Kalpana

Trying to change the world one blog post at a time. I write. It's the best thing I can do. I am the Hanged Man, the Fool, the sometime Magician. Whether I travel in my imagination or in real life I write about it and show you pictures either through my photography or through the pictures I paint with my words. I read books and write fiction. During working hours I teach English as an Additional Language. I edit.

    the poetry is in form of a haiku right? or use of modern japanese syllable pattern. I love this kind of pattern a really nice catchy tone to it 🙂


    • Thank you Richa.
      No this isn’t Haiku although I write haiku on my other blog. Haiku is 17 syllables. There’s more to it of course…
      Glad you liked my poem 🙂

  3. Wow. That piece speaks to every bad ending I’ve ever experienced. That kind of pain is never easy to deal with. I hope that it gets better for you sooner rather than later.
