the long search

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


I opened my hands

And let the moments fly away

They had grown tiny wings

Guess, it was time to go

I set them free

And I found freedom...

Hello Sib

this is so close to my heart... the moments that have wings now and that need to fly away now... harder i try to make them stay, the tougher it gets for me. yet.... setting them free gifts me with a certain peace... strangely numbing!

Beautiful words, Soul. Just beautiful.

agnes 2 March 2009 at 00:49  

P.S.: You're the author, right?

Talking To My Soul 2 March 2009 at 01:49  


Just let them fly away. Let them go. Free them.

I wish you all the peace of this world.

Thanks for liking it so much.

I am so glad you liked it, Agnes.

Your words can be intrepreted in so many ways here...I found my meaning in them. Beautiful photography to match..I'm impressed.

Keshi 2 March 2009 at 08:53  


Letting go of the Moments is hard but at some point in our lives, we hv to do just that to set ourselves free. Just like u said in this post.

TC ok Soul. I wish u all the good things in life!

*smilez* byeee!


moi 2 March 2009 at 12:29  

its indeed beautiful, setting free something which you have held on for the longest time but ultimately you release yourself from it too :)

Talking To My Soul 2 March 2009 at 13:31  


I am indeed happy to know that my words can be interpreted in many ways. This is an honour for me, I must tell you.

Thank you very much for liking it and arriving here once again.


Talking To My Soul 2 March 2009 at 13:34  


I know it's hard to let go. That's all the more reason to free them lest they hold on to you forever.

Thank you so much. I wish you the best in life too. Always. Be well.


Talking To My Soul 2 March 2009 at 13:36  


I guess setting something free has the secret of attaining freedom.

Great to see you here again. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much, lady. Am honoured. Less is more, I guess.

Talking To My Soul 5 March 2009 at 12:18  


I am so delighted you liked it. I really am.

Feel free to blogroll me. That will be my honour.


Anonymous 6 March 2009 at 09:01  

Very very beautiful. Take in the world, let it resonate, feel it, celebrate it, and then set it free to be available to the Moment once more.

Talking To My Soul 6 March 2009 at 16:01  

-->Natural Moments

Beautifully said, Bernie. I loved it.

Thanks for arriving here. Your blog is such a beautiful one.


Pri 6 March 2009 at 21:37

You are so very right. That's what the picture was meant to say. I'm so glad you liked it.

Thank you so very much for visiting.

simple and yet meaningful words.

Trevor Penn 7 March 2009 at 08:16  

Your best post yet. Atleast my favorite. :-)

Talking To My Soul 7 March 2009 at 15:59  


Thanks, dear. I am glad you liked it. I guess I dont understand complex things myself. So you know.

Thank you again for visiting again.


Talking To My Soul 7 March 2009 at 16:01  


Oh! Did you just mean to say that you did not like (so much) my other posts!!!!

Thank you. I am so glad you liked it, Crooner.


Trevor Penn 8 March 2009 at 00:02  

Sib, you know that ain't true. :)

Talking To My Soul 8 March 2009 at 02:29  


Oh sure I do. Was only using up some gimmicks to hear a few good words about me. That's all. :)

Thanks, mate.

A beautiful poetry... :)
Makes me wanna fly...


Talking To My Soul 9 March 2009 at 02:39  


I am glad you liked it and it made you feel like flying.

Do come back. Thanks.

this is soo lovely. "I set them free and I found freedom."

Talking To My Soul 10 March 2009 at 11:17  


Heyy, where have you been all these days?

Thanks so much, A. I am so glad you liked it.


Agnes 10 March 2009 at 21:43  

You and Trevor crack me up :-)

Anonymous 10 March 2009 at 21:57  

i wanna let em go tooooooo!!!
someone told me to burn em...
now i wonder which one is more approriate.. which one wont come back!

Talking To My Soul 10 March 2009 at 22:50  


I am glad Trevor and I manage to do that. That's an accomplishment for me.

Thanks, Agnes.


Talking To My Soul 10 March 2009 at 23:53  


There's nothing called appropriate, I guess. But by burning them you'll still be left with the ashes. Let them go. Free them. They will free you too. Easier said than done!!! May be yes, but worth the try if you want your freedom, trust me.

Welcome to my blog. Thank you so much for reading. Do return.


Kartz 11 March 2009 at 10:22  

Letting go is never easy, is it...

Profound words.



First time 'ere. Sailed in from Ms. Qureshi's page.

Peace. Have a nice day.

Talking To My Soul 11 March 2009 at 13:33  


Heyy welcome aboard, Kartz. It was fun chatting up with you on FB the other day.

You are right. Letting go is never easy. But what are the options? It is the only way, I guess. Hard but worth the try.

Thank you very much for those good words. And of course, for arriving here.


Towards reclamation 11 March 2009 at 16:40  

thats neat and succinctly put ...

A question though .. frm my life i have been trying to answer this ....
when we let them fly away ... do they really fly AWAY or we make ourselves believe that they have flown away and condone them .. ?? will come back for the answer

Talking To My Soul 11 March 2009 at 21:29  

-->Reclamation(The arrow signifies the word TOWARDS)

I agree with you. Letting them fly away is easier said than done.

The question is what do you choose in life? Pain is no choice. Guilt is not one either. Nor are remorse and self-pity. Trust me, all these cling on to you when you hold on to "the moments."

Free them and you will truly love them.

Thank you so much for being here. I felt great. Do return.


Towards reclamation 11 March 2009 at 21:37  

hmmm .... your point is true ... and we concur . plz visit

but the question is still unanswered .. i will be more clear ... i control my thoughts so i have banished them from my memory .. but then isnt it tht we just choose to overlook them ... ? come to terms with them .. as in the freeing is actually sort of not looking at them ...

Lena 11 March 2009 at 23:45  

i liked it... really an interesting concept, and very wise too... we only can be entirely free when we let go of something that chains us.
Thats tough though..

agnes 11 March 2009 at 23:54

Q 12 March 2009 at 07:19  

Dear Soul,
Very beautiful...releasing and knowing we are not our memories or our thoughts. Butterflies are beautiful as is the process of letting go. And like the butterfly somtimes we need time in a cocoon to be ready to fly.
Always you enchant.
Thank you.

Keshi 12 March 2009 at 10:43  

Hope all is well with ya :)


Talking To My Soul 12 March 2009 at 20:11  


Can you really banish them? What's overlooking? Is not it a conscious effort to stay away from something you hold so dear to your heart? So are you always in control?

I guess, the real challenge is to dispossess them. That is the key. You're right, Sid. It ain't easy. Nothing then is. And, there are no answers always.


Talking To My Soul 12 March 2009 at 20:30  


Heyy Lena. Long time, lady. Good to see you again.

You are right. It's tough. Probably the toughest. Then the other option, like you said, is to remain chained.

Thank you for visiting. Good you're back.


Talking To My Soul 12 March 2009 at 20:33  


Thanks, Grandma. I meant Jamie's. :P


Talking To My Soul 12 March 2009 at 20:35  


So simply put. So beautifully put. I am amazed. You are right. We need our time in the cocoon to be ready to fly. But fly we must.

Thank you so much reading.


Talking To My Soul 12 March 2009 at 20:41  


Heyy, I should be asking you the question, Kesh.

How'z you and where'z you? Do tell me. Hope you are enjoying yourself.


Margie 18 March 2009 at 02:24  

Beautiful post!
I so relate!
Thank you!

Thank you so much for being here.

Such few words and they say so much...actually the picture says it all...soul stirring.These words shall stay with me for a long time.

Thank you so very much, Poonam. I am so glad you arrived here. And I am delighted you liked it so much.

Thanks again. Please return.

Transformation is ongoing. To attune to the frequency of energy enables one to raise awareness of what matters. You discard what you outgrow and uncover who you have always been. It is a pleasure to engage in rebirth, a road to self-discovery.
