by V S Balakrishnan

Published in Issue No. 298 ~ March, 2022

I could feel that I have matured.

The joints that secured me to my pod have finally become loose.

We, a bunch of polite seeds so far, have become

Noisy and stressful, bewildered by the constant jolts

That shake our fluffy abode in every direction.

The fear of getting crushed in this chaos is ever present.

All of a sudden, a ray of bright light pierces in

And the blue sky fills our awestruck eyes as we ready ourselves

Guided by hope and the blowing wind

For our maiden voyage toward an unknown destination.
