the long search

When you have nowhere to go, go back to yourself.

Soul's New Song

Don't look back
It will tug at your heart
Let the past go
Let go of the memories
And the clutching pain.

Soon the stars will fade
The blackness of the night will melt
In the soothing lights of a new dawn
Tomorrow will be another day
Tomorrow will have a new sun.....

*Wishing you all a soulful New Year*

Hopefully.... there will be a new sun for me too...

I'm not in a very good shape right now... this sort of lifted me up a little


Diana 1 January 2009 at 15:16  

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

Happy New Year Siba.

You're spot on. You can say that was the inspiration for this post.

Time for all of us to step into that new dawn. And move forward together.

Thanks Kesh for liking it. I am so glad.

Take care and Happy New Year again.


Talking To My Soul 1 January 2009 at 16:08  



There'll be a new sun for all of us. Just move forward to that dawn, and you will see it.

I'm not sure if my post lifted your spirits but keep coming back. Know that you're not alone.

Thanks for dropping by.

God bless you and Happy New Year.


Talking To My Soul 1 January 2009 at 16:12  


You perfectly put it, I say. To make room for something new, you have got to remove the old. That's what a dear friend of mine always keeps saying.

Happy New Year to you, Di.


Agnes 1 January 2009 at 17:59  

Oh how beautiful!!!
Happy New Year!!!

Talking To My Soul 1 January 2009 at 20:08  


Thanks a ton, Agnes. Your level of energy simply amazes me.

How'z India treating you and Geoff? Do update your post.

Thanks for finding time for mine.


Kasturi 2 January 2009 at 12:46  

That was really wonderful. I never knew you had a poet in you. There's nothing more positive than a sunrise to reiterate our faith that there's always hope for a bright day after a dark night.
A very happy new year.

Talking To My Soul 2 January 2009 at 18:22  


Heyy thanks, Kasty. But I would like to believe that there is no poet in me. Nope. Yes, some words were lying cluttered in my mind. I somehow did manage to put them in order. That is all.

Thanks for dropping by. Happy New Year to you too.


Lena 3 January 2009 at 22:20  

thats some great message :)
May the new year bring you only good things that you wouldnt want to leave behind :)

Talking To My Soul 4 January 2009 at 02:14  


Thank you very much, lady.

Here is wishing you a successful and peaceful New Year.

And, congrats for the short story and the book.


Keshi 4 January 2009 at 04:24  



Talking To My Soul 4 January 2009 at 13:38  


Ah! You're still holidaying, Kesh? Lucky you, I must say.

Take care and enjoy yourself.


Disturbed Stranger 4 January 2009 at 21:03  

That was soul-soothing!
Beautifully written...

Happy New Year! :)

Talking To My Soul 4 January 2009 at 21:52  


I am so glad you liked it. Thank you very much.

Have not seen you around for long. How have you been?

Happy New Year to you too.


Trevor Penn 5 January 2009 at 11:12  

Oh! wonderful thoughts, Soul.
I wish you the best.

Talking To My Soul 5 January 2009 at 16:11  


Heyy Crooner, thanks, mate. How have you been?

I wish you all the very best in this New Year.


Writing for Crows 6 January 2009 at 00:02  

There is some much to hope for in your lines. Gives me peace.

Talking To My Soul 6 January 2009 at 02:18  


Hope. That's the only thing we need to hold onto, I guess.

Hey thanks for flying by, Crow. You yourself write wonderful stuff.


Anonymous 6 January 2009 at 02:38

Agnes 8 January 2009 at 19:39  

Thanks :-) India was fun, though it was a very short trip -- the shortest one we've ever done.
You changed your template again, I like it! I loved the old one as well.
Here is to an awesome 2009!!!

Keshi 9 January 2009 at 15:59

Thanks, girl. It's dark. That is the complaint I get to hear now. Well....

Thanks again.


Talking To My Soul 9 January 2009 at 23:52  


Great to know you and Geoff had fun in India. Do come back. And hope to see some posts and pictures of your India trip soon.

I too liked my old template but it threw up some technical problems. So found New Year the perfect time for a change.

Thanks again, Agnes.


Talking To My Soul 10 January 2009 at 00:01  


Once again. Lucky you, Kesh. You can afford to bludge. Let's swap places!

That's me in the picture. Thanks for the "nice" comment. You hooked!! Ah! Me honoured!

How you doing?


Q 10 January 2009 at 05:22  

Dear Talking To My Soul,
Each day is a new song....I lov ethat. I love the idea of creating my own song each day. Each a chance to have an adventure, a chance to smile and share. Thank you for this poem. I am grateful I have met you, so very delightful!
I will be reading your journal and catching up. I hope to see some birds or some butterflies!

Talking To My Soul 10 January 2009 at 08:14  


Thank you so very much, Sherry. Thanks for those lovely words.

Talking To My Soul 13 January 2009 at 13:36  


Ah!I Know What You Did last Summer, Kesh! I Still Know...

I mean Freddie Prinze Jr! You meant him! It's because the picture is a little on the darker side; hazy too giving out such an impression.

Anyways, I will take it anyday from you, Kesh. THANKS. AGAIN.


Keshi 13 January 2009 at 16:07  

And I know what you did last Winter Soul LOL! ;-)
