Object of Desire

I am no object of desire
No obligation
No compulsion
No moment to spare
Its my life , my way
my mind free to sway
with the winds of time
with the melodious chime
or will lie low
listless and blow
with the dried leaves of autumn
or light up and glow
from top to bottom
with the tenders of spring
and Church bells ring
why should you question
to hurt my esteem
I am a free soul
reflecting my dreams
flowing down the streams
or drying up parched ,
My soul , My body
and why should somebody
expect the time to stand
still in the barn
frozen in the puddle
my cottage muddled
though surrounded by greens
will crumble for sure
and certainly disappear
yet my soul is too beautiful
in mirror to appear ……

    This poem contains a strong assertion of the poet’s resolution to be true to her own self above all other considerations . It is a poem full of hope and self confidence .
