Yet still I love you…

I’ve travelled the world

I’ve landed in space

Still everywhere I see your face

I’ve admired the birds, flowers and oceans

Drifted in the  rush of flowing streams

Still I find you waiting  in my dreams

You have followed me wherever I have been

You shared in all that I have done, all I have seen

You’ve seen the paradoxes in me and I in you

Yet still…I love you

    1. I’m glad you see that 🙂 Btw I was watching that Trevor Noah that you referred to the other day- the one that takes a knock on Bunny chows and the SA Indian accent. (I hadn’t seen it before) It was hilarious. I wish I could hear yours. What’s interesting here is that we have a Myriad accents amongst us all.Did your sojourn abroad change yours.
      I’m coming over to you now:-)

      1. Well, mine is an Indian English accent (like you may heard perhaps on the TV during cricket commentary?). I think some Americanisms inevitably slip in, but I think you will understand me easily enough!

      2. No, that’s not really an Indian-Indian dish. I read somewhere about its origins – when the indentured labourers wanted roti (chapatti/flatbread) and curry, someone thought of scooping out & hollowing bread and dunking the curry in it. Don’t know if that’s true… I’ll settle for a braai or a bake 🙂

      3. Well whatever its origins, I am a bunny chow fan. But I think an SA Indian cuisine has developed over time. Since we are more cosmopolitan in my city, one gets introduced to other types of curry influenced by different Indian regions. Some are sweeter. Whatever, I like it spicy and hot – the curry:-)

      4. I do know there are variations of regional Indian cuisines wherever there’s a disapora – with local influences of that place. But then we have so many different communities in India that there really isn’t one single cuisine either. Our food habits are as diverse as the country itself!

      5. True! I think only those who come from diverse societies can sit back and appreciate that – we call ourselves a multicultural salad (well, bhel puri really, but that’s too hard to explain – it’s a mix had a snack, with different ingredients and bursting with flavour), as opposed to the American melting pot. Apologies, long mail 🙂

      6. Pros and cons either way. The melting pot is deceitful sometimes. But where I am hopeful is that we do turn, maybe too slowly than we’d like but we turn nevertheless. I am very far off in my perspectives from how I was reared and wonder if I had freedom to choose again would my choices still be the same – they may certainly be different for my children. Problem is, not everyone is exposed to the same lenses and therefore do not turn at the same pace. Anyway – let me stop hogging your time.This kind of conversation needs a glass of wine at sundown☺️ Have a gorgeous day:-)

  1. I was thinking of the outer self and the inner self when I read this (rather than two people, a relationship) and it made perfect sense. Now I’m wondering if that was what you had in mind when you wrote it, or just my interpretation? Have a great day, nurture your inner self! 🙂

    1. I think there are so many contextual things that influence what we write. So in my view there are no right or wrong answers. I can see merit in looking at the poem both ways. In fact the reader may be the better judge since you are standing and looking at this as if it were a painting where there is an artist’s perspective and your perspective and something in between. I write poems fairly quickly most of the time so I know that much flows unconsciously – even the rhymes.So interactions like this help me see what I might not because even I might be surprised. I do find the writing process fascinating in that sometimes the trigger is one word and other times it is drawn from a simmering pot of thoughts and feelings. Darn- I have written an essay here. I might just write something on that painting perspective you triggered:-)
