The songbird in me

The Songbird in me continues to hum and sing,
the way it has been singing for me always, all these years.

The lilting notes nourish my soul and help it to regain it’s rythm,
a rythm that gets disrupted due to the fast pace and the loud noise of the world.

It’s soothing song subdues the sometimes ugly sounds of life,
helping me regain the balance and peace that I need in my soul.

It makes me see the goodness in others,
helps me to take in and appreciate the beauty around me.

The Songbird in me has refused to leave my side,
it makes me hum and feel light at heart.

A heart that it strives to keep moist and alive,
least the disturbing heat from outside makes it dry and lifeless.

What about your Songbird?
You know it’s there in you, humming and singing only for you.

I am Sapna Dhyani. I write about everything that crosses my mind. I write about life as I see it and like to infuse humour into my blogs. I belong to Dehradun but now live in a new city after every two years, being an army wife. This uprooting of base every couple of years, setting up a new home in a new place, meeting new people and forging new friendships, exploring new cities; all this ensures that I go through and am blessed with a myriad of experiences.
