“the bridges float on the horizons we have lost” – Nayana Nair


the bird of possibility, decorated with arrows,
sits on our broken shoulders
and asks us what we see there
there – where we are not



something fragile still sleeps in us

our hands reach out to always find a sure warmth

something made of feathers hugs us back

a gentle sun kisses our wearied eyelids

and yet the dream doesn’t dissolve in your hand


  1. To look to a future that has warmth and happiness is a vision worth keeping. A lovely piece Nayana. I don’t know whether you celebrate Valentine Day, but if you do then I hope yours was lovely.

      Thanks a lot David 🙂 Really glad that you liked it.
      Nothing special on this Valentine’s Day for me (the downside of being single I suppose 🙂 ), but I hope your Valentine’s Day was wonderful 🙂
      Hope you have a lovely day. 🙂 😀
