Winter’s End is Near

***Background to this musing…It was a busy day at work; time flew, and yet, the soul was restless. Some thoughts kept bugging me. So, I had to get this rambling off my back before night descended on my part of the world. Here goes…

"Jacarandas in Bangalore herald the Change of Season when Winter gives way to Early Spring, and to a Fresh Lease of Life and Hope"

On a bright Winter afternoon,
The Jacaranda season is starting to bloom.

As the January sun rises up high,
So, do the Blues intensify.

A restless mind jumps out of the box;
To search the clouds for an elusive fox.

An unblinking eye stares at the sky
Unwilling to let passions run dry.

So, let’s roll into this year
With our dreams intact, and, perhaps a fear.

And, try to forget the things that were a let-down
For there is indeed a world beyond some frowns, and a clown.
