“It was difficult to believe that I could be loved just as I am. It was odd that we had to be told. ” – Nayana Nair


The frame of winter breaks
the snow drips, flows, and climbs
like a relentless silver creeper,
like a god finally on its way
to end the reign and terror of heaven.
Our eyes stare, amazed at the cold white spiders
running across the face of the sky;
the music and the metal dissolving the distant names,
dissolving the knives we decorated our heart with.
We could all feel an equal summer light
embracing our backs silently.


  1. Unless we can be ourselves then the possibility of love lasting is weak. Trying to change oneself to suit another’s vision is changing what might have been the initial attraction anyway. Winter offers the long nights here that are great for reflection or just sitting in front of a warm fire and sharing life. Welcome to 2023 and may it be a wonderful one for you.

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      I totally agree with you on that. A love based on the conditions and demand of changing one person to fit the view of other is not something that can nurture our heart. And even if we find our way to a love that can indeed be a food to soul, but as long as we see ourselves unworthy of it, as long as we don’t accept accept ourselves for who we are with a kindness and an understanding , we always end up self-sabotaging the good things in life as well, from the fear of being seen for whatever we believe we are. But love in many ways asks us to see others and allow ourselves to be seen. Which doesn’t really go well with the ideas of hiding our real selves from others as well as ourselves.
      I miss those beautiful winters. 🙂 It sounds like a healing long night.
      Hope 2023 brings you all good things.
      Thanks a lot for supporting my work 🙂 Means a lot to me. 😀
