One Step at a time….

I shiver with the cold incense,
Sometimes that light up my petite insecurities,
Brewed slowly inside of me,
In places secluded from the obvious world,
And tether me onto a thread minuscule,
Almost invisible,
It becomes a daily conundrum,
The blanket doesn’t warm me anymore,
And the fan spews spitfire,
I drift steadily,
Sometimes away and the other to,
The goal I had seen in times ancient,
My timelines still blurred,
Although I move, capture and achieve,
One step at a time……

The little ant…

This little ant was the inspiration for the above poem. I captured this one as I was sitting in my garden, trying to admire the little things in life…..

  1. My dear Harsh- I am amazed at the never-say-die attitude of the central figure of yr poem who survives in all adversities of tough times in life moving one step at a time to achieve—“The goal I had seen in times ancient,
    My timelines still blurred,
    Although I move, capture and achieve,
    One step at a time……!Commendable creation of yours yet again. Keep it up. God bless you ,dear💖

    1. It is this attitude we sometimes need Sirji. We may be down sometimes, unwilling to move but we eventually do. Our ambitions may drive us to our success…..

      Thank you so much Sirji. I am really glad you liked this one.
      Hope you are well.
      Also, did you get your vaccine shot..?😇

  2. I just read it on Insta and I read it here again and re read it. Its just wow. I am amazed at how you draw your inspiration from an ant and have put that in such beautiful words.
    Never say die attitude is what we all need to learn from them.
    Good work Harsh
