Our space


like those wild weeds

we are persistent beings

such inevitable outgrowth

from this veil of sophistication

trampled or crushed or be uprooted

we get up and grow


we arise with time, over time

so elegantly rooted

our seeds of resolve in the womb of earth

through the skin we warriors emerge

impenetrable armor of experience strapped

honey laced swords shine

carving into the flesh of those who demur

a sculptured heart resides

beside the one they lived with so far


we beat in rhythm, but have no life to pump

a garland of beauty beautified with frivolous touch

making our space as they melt

we declare a war of love

with passion, with obsession

to strive and live on our terms

a heart to beat so for us, if not theirs


yes, we love

    Such an elegant and beautiful poem, Shefali. These battles of love are fought in armies of two. Lucky are those who find such companions on the fields of life. There is a tenderness in your words that offers comfort as you wield your honey laced pen to pierce the heart. And such a stunning photograph to go with. Simply divine, love ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Lathered with woody puissance, you have captured the resilience of the “weeds” most perfectly.

    I was captivated reading lines such as “the seeds of resolve in the womb of the earth”.
    You are the wildflower at the river edge; your poetry the evening sun’s reflections, dazzling my view ….
