A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

My Roman Holiday!


Quite by accident
I stepped out of
my straitjacket…

And astounded
myself at
my temerity.

A translucent
cloak for its
misty aura,

I surrender myself
with a gypsy’s heart
to collect a wealth
of memories
to hoard away!

And all the while
I know-
I’ll have to
step back.

The straitjacket’s

So it cannot
Of course.

Like a leaf
from a book

I’ll never write…

My Roman Holiday.

Usha , 19 April, ’07

Inspired by the film, “Roman Holiday”, starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck:)
