Wings of Light


A blazing sunset left a trail of new hues

Every evening, ever evolving

In the rosy dusk, a lone star caught my eye

The one that dared to intervene the surreal calm.

I reached out to catch the star but instead,

It was me who got entwined in its sparkle.


It was not lonely up there, only surrounded by eternity

Flickering and winking – that light

Enveloping me with its dignified strength.

It found my own light to set my world ablaze

Illuminating a myriad of paths unfolding before me

And for the first time, the choice was truly mine.


In the starlight, I traced footsteps unique and selfishly mine.

Addictive liberation of a kind yet untouched but yearned.

On a whim I gave myself up like a tide to the moon

High and low, trapezing with the flow

Feeling and listening to the undercurrents of my heart

And finally, giving in to its pull with wings on my feet.

After so long, I have heard what I really want. Been spending time which has been all about me. And I am loving it, unabashedly. Below is what has become the theme song of my life presently.

  1. I love the way your words were dancing across the screen. There is some sort of freedom, a liberation in the way this poem reflects your feelings. Very very beautifully penned Prajakta, so full of light and love ! ♥️


  2. Very catchy video with the line “stop chasing shadows, just enjoy your life” going through my mind”.

    And the poem was beautiful with an air of life, freedom and spontaneity.

    More people need to do just that.

    Thank you for sharing! 🙂
