Winds of Change

When I chose to confine myself in my self constructed shell
I had been wilting
After having suffered through droughts
And floods
And lack of minerals!
Why, like Sleeping Beauty
I remained enclosed
Cut off from the rest of the world
Choosing to let myself twirl
In the many layers of my dreams
Hoping that I do get lost in these
So that I may forget about my reality
That of being, a wilted and scarred lily!

But then, one night, the moon started dancing
With such grace and exuberance
That the wolves howled with pride and confidence
And leaves shook with unexplained frenzy
Why, the winds have changed!

They brought with them, alterations to my planned confinement
My shell blew apart
Leaving me, confused and perplexed
To admire the moon's dance
And to let the wolves' howls drown my senses!

Pray, the winds have changed
As they no more wished to see me confined
The winds have changed
As they desired it that I love the mundane plane
Yes, Mother Earth and the Goddess of Life
Are not to be blamed for any of those mishaps
That broke me!
The winds have changed
As they wanted me to open my heart,
Filter through them to reach their warmth
And let it submerge my frail essence
In its twisting love kaleidoscope!

Pray, winds of change come to knock me down
Willing me to get back up
Lower my guards
Throw away my swords
And ride the wolves
To there where I am awaited
There, wherever that may be
There, wherever fate will it to be!

Pray, the winds of change
Kissed my soul
And like Sleeping Beauty
I woke up, only to embrace
My new reality!
