I am enough for me! Nehal

Belonging – Nehal

The wind is blowing no more The fallen leaves are resting After landing now They’re making a crunchy sound as I walk on them The naked tree is coming to terms With its bare-all look.

By the Sea -Nehal

Its morning the sea in front of me roaring; keeps rushing to the shore. like a child; restless and energetic! Now in the afternoon it starts to calm down, now a tired child; getting quiet on its own! And finally in the evening it starts receding back again like a child hiding away; head down…

Age of unrest – Nehal

Are we all puppets?? Dancing to the “feel good ” tune. Or we live in a trans!? Or we live in a Utopia, fed to our minds like a dream?? “All is well’ is the hypnotizing pendulum moving in front of our eyes holding us in its control. Ah, have we already arrived?? Are we…
