Panacea

Panacea

A Poem by Jiya

I was treading across the seamless desert

When a tiny droplet of water patted my shoulder

What made me jump over the cactuses to catch the second drop?

A drop of sweat off my brow dotted the entire sandy stretching desert

A tiny shoot dared to raise its head, challenging the searing vision of the sun.

 

Why did the cloudless sky start pelting raindrops at my parched skin?

What was the epiphany that erased  my footprints and turned the thorns into roses

Getting pulled towards the acrid smell of mysticism

I saw you sitting as a swan amongst a thousand pigeons.
