Alisha Nangia‘s poem: Lines Written On A December Afternoon


This winter sun tastes sweeter

than a cinnamon bun,

but let’s talk of defeat and

wars you have won,

against all that is dark.

 
The years flew by-

with more spark

than flame in your eye,

and the saddest joke

was a love where you tried,

against all that was dark.

 
And this winter day

sprawls out, victorious,

on your balcony,

A courageous heart

keeps tough times at bay,

Count your graces, while you may,

Your candle still burns in the dark.
