    New Streets

    New streets
    New corners
    And a sea of new people.

    The hours of flights,
    The distances apart
    make the heart
    Like some core images of life
    are being left behind
    Have been…

    The image of the moment
    of my Mother's farewell to us all-


    God hold Time before
    Such a moment.

    Eyes closed to the outside world
    turned inward into
    the darkness of the inner light,

    Pushpinder Kaur October 3,2017
    (My new poem titled, 'New Streets')
