Impenetrable walls they seemed,

To be accessed,

Imprisoned by their beliefs,

They found it safe to be,

Incognito inside,

Lady Moon smiled from above,

Instantaneously wondering,

Why don’t they give it a try,

I change everyday, everyone admires,

Wind swept across lest she revealed secrets of yore keeping her,

In check,

For them to realise,


56 words.

Thoughts behind the poem :- I had too many thoughts for this enigmatic image, it’s like this picture has too many stories to tell. Finally, I settled for this thought process :- Many a times, we are comfortable in our shoes, we fail to try out new things. Who knows, given a chance we might end up liking newness.

Acknowledgements :- Thank you Sadje for running What do you see challenge #35. For rules please refer here. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.

  1. I agree with your thoughts Kitty. We are sometimes too comfortable in our rut to try new things. Whereas life means new experiences!
    Thanks a lot for joining in the challenge
