On my way to you



My cracked sole 

bleeds a little more 

with every 

bare step, I take 

on the boulevard 

of crushed rock 

as dense 

as your heart. 

The crossroad 

fronting us 

did mislead us apart, 

I’ll scatter seeds 

on the aisle 

for a blooming 

fresh start. 

And when your eyes 

crinkle into a smile, 

maybe they would, 

when you 

see me, my love. 

I’ll worship 

why I paced 

that further mile

the trail of flowers 

on our aisle 

and your beautiful smile.

    This is just a beginning for Dr Priya Dolma Tamang. I am sure that in future, she is going to contribute a lot in the literary world and definitely occupy a special niche in it. I have read all poems of Ivory Glean. Each poem has very deep meaning
