Fabric-Megha Sood

“Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.”
–Anonymous

Between the threads of reality
and threads of our vivid dreams
we weave our fabric of life
embellish it with our achievements
flaunting around with pride
and we don’t want any stains on it
we want it pristine and pure
draped in the gossamer of our desires
we just want to live
one day more
But as the time flies
the fabric is tugged and pulled part
at the edges
and seams are coming out
no matter how much you save it
how much you avoid
there are people who will
weave love and passion on it
the silky smooth touch
a touch of the cashmere
mixed with works of filigree
which wraps our souls
and gives it meaning
But my love,
don’t you ever forget
there are some who
will leave an impression
resurrect and infuse your soul
when they embrace you with the
burlap of their life
a touch of their own.

  1. Megha,

    Let’s just say Megha’s World is a good world to have with us in the cafe! These lines, concluding your poem:

    But my love,
    don’t you ever forget
    there are some who
    will leave an impression
    resurrect and infuse your soul
    when they embrace you with the
    burlap of their life
    a touch of their own.

    are so powerful to me. The importance of one human reaching out to another, and how modest an image such as burlap. Achievement means nothing compared to the connections souls have the courage to make. Really wonderful poem, thank you for sharing it! — Stephen

    • Thanks so much, Stephen for giving such a glowing feedback. I really appreciate it and it has been a pleasure all along to be part of the cafe and Yes, the whole point of our existence in a social setup is being touched by souls which transforms us.
