Icarus In Flight
May 13 2010

While I find the time to write-up my takeaways on the recent book I finished reading, here is a poem from a friend name Shaku Selvakumar who blogs at Brown Girl In The RingBrown Girl grapples with work, life, family and striking that fine balance. How the world affects us and where we can affect change in the world. Reducing our carbon footprint and increasing our heart imprint.

She is brave enough to share her gems on facebook and on her blog.  I am not as brave as she to share my poems and song lyrics as I fear most people would not understand them.  I don’t know about Shaku but sometimes when I write, the words come out without me having to think too much about them.  On occasion, I’ve gone back to read what I have written not remembering that I actually wrote some of those words.  With her permission, I am republishing this wonderful poem of hers.  I met Shaku many years ago through an organization called The Indus Entrepreneur now known as TIE Austin.  One of her three daughters went briefly to the same home care my kids went to.  She also worked for a company called Webify that was an ATI company bought by IBM.  Although we haven’t seen each other in years it seems, I feel as if we are on similar journey’s.

Icarus In Flight

I have wondered
About the road ahead
It twists and turns
It craves and burns

I have wondered
About the flight of the Dead
Where do souls converge
In oneness or splintered to return instead

I have wondered
About the colour of Love
Is it green, or black, is it blue
Or blood, a reprieve of a fearless vow

I have wondered
About the path of Dreams
Lifting, soaring, flailing, crashing
Breathing barely, fearing a requiem

I have wondered
About the burden of Stones
Gathering, growing,
Silently groaning waiting to be thrown

Now I wander
Through rows of Marigold
Wading in murky waters
Looking for Lotuses to unfold

Who dared the Sun
And touched the Sky
The Gods did he slight
To be Icarus on his flight

    Aruni, I am so touched that you chose to republish the poem. You are so right when you say that words come rushing out and later you look back and wonder “was that me talking?”.
    I started writing my poems in 2006 when a dear friend died in an accident. Didn’t know till then that I could even attempt poetry. Today, I don’t care if people like it or unlike it, sometimes you just give birth and let it breathe.
    I love the honesty in your writing and the lucidity.
    Keep writing your poems even if it is only for yourself.
    And thank you so much for the blogpost…it means a lot to me.
    Looking forward to our lunch…email on its way.
