Feelings

a poem by Deepa Gopalan

Feelings are ornamental shadows
Following thoughts into their streams
Through the day you see them happen
All night they mingle in your dreams.
If the sun is the power of shadows
Let thoughts be the strength of feelings
For as the sun rises, shadows arise
And feelings are tended when a thought so brings.
An overcast sky and hopes wither
To have a shadow keeping close
Another’s influence and desires drown
To trust one’s feelings that have arose.
But there’s always a new day
For the sun to cope it’s brilliance
And there’s never too little a time
For feelings to step in glorious ambience.
So trust as you trust sunrise
Your thoughts that are fancy’s realms
As sunrise promises brighter prospects
Thoughts nurture feelings that realise dreams.
