A chance encounter……

Upon a chance encounter,

A secret hermitage,

Astounding calm,

Despite the seething rage.

 

She warily looks within,

Like the subtle moon….

And stands besotted

As if in a swoon……

 

For inside the thatch,

She discovers another self–

Bent in prayer

A divine smile,

Cocooned in a shelf.

 

Is this her second being,

Long lost and forlorn….

Is this where she had been

Through trials and storms……

 

The hermitage was hers

And she had never known

Raging battles in the wild,

That is how she had grown.

 

She can sit beside the other self,

And pray a little awhile–

For tempests to surrender

And till the rainbow would smile.

 

Upon a chance encounter

This secret hermitage,

She would return to again

Because she now knows the way

Full well….

Among the wilds and the rain.
