Complex Connections…

“Soul connections are not often found and are worth every bit of fight left in you to keep” ~ Shannon L. Alder

There are certain connections that seem unreal to us, that defy all logical sense and make us wonder about their charm, beauty and complexity…


Sometimes seemingly opposite unexpected ends attract,
The things we assume have no connection seem to form a pact.
Like the turbulence at sea which pushes the waves to the shore,
Helping it meet the far off land and wish for it more.
The sun and the moon like two opposite poles meeting during the eclipse,
Coming together to form a beautiful glow with their powers combined in a mix.
Like a candle coming to life with the aim to spread light with its glow,
However, the heat in turn melting it away until the wick is blown.
The red flames in need of a little air for it to sustain,
At the same time a strong blow of wind has the power to extinguish its dancing flame.
The secret magic of how water turns to ice and vice-versa,
With just a change in the temperature showcasing the true power of nature.
It is confusing how certain connections seem strange,
The element that brings it to life is the same which makes it hard for it to sustain.
They seem to have no common end or goal,
But when they come together it is nothing like before.
Like these elements in nature we humans too share such bonds,
That seem destructive to others which only that person understands and adores.
These connections are always hard to sustain,
For it demands a sacrifice often leaving one in vain.
But the emotions, the feelings and the love in these connections is so pure,
That no matter how complex they may seem,
And we may never know what will they result in or if there will be a result for sure,
But deep in our hearts we always do and we always will wish for them…and more.

Tangled Knots…

“Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer. Understanding the mystery behind attachment and detachment…

Attachment is often followed by detachment…creating a knotted mess which despite being tugged from all ends only tightens these uncomfortable knots even more.

Like the strong connection between the sun and the moon,

The calming effect on a baby as the mother croons.

The sound of the thunder after the lightening strikes,

Relief that spreads as one quenches his thirst and slowly revives.

There are mysterious connections like these that are hard to understand,

They are close to the heart and nothing can break their trance.

Their elements go hand in hand,

Creating a sense of attachment as strong as a silk strand.

They calm us give us a sense of security,

Their presence gives us strength and hope to face adversities.

Then what is it that causes a reversal to such feelings,

From complete attachment we reach a state of emotionless stirrings.

Is it the thought of hurting the one we love that draws us away,

Or is it the imaginary pain of supposed seperation which makes us push them away.

It feels like taking away a prized possession,

Making someone feel pain when all they offered to us was love and compassion.

Distance and detachment creates this void,

That no one addresses but sadly avoids.

Certain configurations are hard to figure out,

The more we dwell on them the more we seem to drown.

But everything seems to move in a cycle,

From young to old and life to death,

Everything completes its circle.

So does this mean that this too shall follow the same flow,

With the loved ones who we lost and let go.

Will one day we forget all that which led us apart,

Will one day we be the same as we were in the past…
