She drove into the darkness
Lost moonlight through the mist
Trees glaring at her moving past
She held the imagination of an artist
It had been hours into the journey
Trying to chase the moon and leave it behind
But just like some memories of his
The moon wasn’t going to leave her alone tonight
The gears, steering was subconscious
One moment, two places
Lying next to him, her fingers through his hair
And this road, her car eating up the painted white lines
Not here, she wanted to be there.
— Gunjan Sethi
She’s the sunshine
The one that inspires me to rise every day, every moment
The one that lights up my world when it’s dim
The one that gives me warmth, on my coldest days
The one I can’t live without!
She’s the ocean
Calm, blue, bringing me peace
At times, powerful and energetic
To put me back on my feet.
She the universe
Holding everyone she loves
Close and with care
Listening to everything I have to say
With mindfulness and flair.
She a tree
Standing tall, bossomed with pride
For the land to which she belongs
She will, to her last breath, fight!
