Chrysalism by Simmi

The tranquility of living indoors in a thunderstorm. Periwinkle blue-purple tinted skylights and ambience inside the room. Almost like forgetting something or hallucination, the firewood, the heat. The last winter. Raw and rain, you’re bound to stay confined in the space, still, it’s indifferent. Like deciphering a million dilemmas in your head.  Possessing all-time in the world. Here in the moment. The caffeine you just had, is the awakening. And now you regret, among other things. But the heartsease, the warmth of the luminance lights, is making it worth pausing awake. You witness the thunderstorm flashing, raindrops hitting the glass, you feel the day standstill in the early twilight.

-SIMMI

Simmi writes poetry and prose mainly focused on sentiments, life, and nature. She’s an introvert and finds it hard to express herself, but feels writing helps her through it somehow.

        You’re most welcome, Terveen. Is always my pleasure. Ah, yes, indeed, emotions are just so; a paradox, and, yet, not. Thank you, my friend.😊

    Simmi paints a warm and comforting picture of a thunderstorm and its effects upon a person safely cocooned inside. I’ve often listened to the rain and taken in the sounds and sights in utter stillness. It’s a blissful feeling being immersed in wondrous contemplation.
    Congratulations Simmi!

    I love your poetry, Simmi. There is always a word or phrase that stays with me, like ‘heartsease’ in this poem. What a beautiful expression. Thanks for sharing.
