In this series of Intuitive poetries that I’m penning for the #BlogchatterA2Z challenge and NaPoWriMo, here comes the next heteronym character, Urja, someone who seeks sense out of everything.

Introducing you to Urja with this pandemic poem:

Day25-NaPoWriMo-Urja- An Excerpt

URJA

Today, I feel defeated
words wasted-worthless
when death came dancing by
poetry felt purposeless
someone in my circle
is still trying to make peace with
cries & chaos
seeking sense out of an insanely
unpredictable day like,
today


Today, I let my daughter wear
her favourite frilled frock
in a bright red with embroideries
in white, cream & green a mix
the frock that was shelved
to come out only during festivities
& fancy functions, certainly
not for an ordinary day like the one
today

Today
I let myself sleep & snooze
snooze & sleep in the gentle breeze-
a surprise shower down on earth
in a usually scorching mid-summer week-
something I generally feel guilty about doing
on a not-that-tiring-sleep-deserving-day like,
today


Today I let my daughter jump & dance
indulge in a lot of splish-splash-
as the evening showers pooled up
in the uneven terrain of our terrace-
something i didn’t let my darling do
in the last year’s first summer rain like one
today

Today I let myself stand & stare
at the African tulip tree that's halfway
into getting naked wholly-a seasonal scene
making me contemplate on life’s cycle
wondering if the after shower stillness
is anything synonymous with peace
from everyone’s perspective
or is it something that’s temporary 
of a feeling I get to experience only
today


Does Urja resonate with you? What do you think? Is it always possible to try and make sense of every situation we are handed? Should we even try or just go with the flow?
