Reflections in the pool of life

My reflections in the pool of life beckoned to me today.

They implored me to come sit, cajoled & coaxed me to stay.

Happily I perched on a boulder that I spied ashore.

I knew this awakening, my tired soul wanted for sure.


I sat there in calm surrender, breathing all in one sweep.

Then I picked up a stone and cast it, into the water deep.

The ripples that it caused were reminiscent of some memory,

That came crashing back now became a part of my reality.


In the iridescent swell of the ripples, I saw ribbons of my life flash

And in that very moment, I felt my past and present clash.

I closed my eyes then to the remembrance; out came my sigh’s.

I saw even then, a vivid imagery play before my closed eyes.


With a resounding clap like thunder, I knew deep in my senses

That I must arise and go now, go and atone for my offences.

To anyone whom I hurt, caused any harm; my apologies sincere!

From here on I’ll ensure goodness so that my reflections, I can bear.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
