Life has a splendid touch

Dr Simmi Gurwara Professor & Head, Department of English, GNIT, Greater Noida.

Life has a splendid touch
that is felt by those
who stay awake,
throughout the night
of gale and storm.
These are the people
who look for lessons
coming from the most
unexpected visitors
both dead and alive,
who graciously offer
the crystal beads,
shining brightly
with years of rubbing and rectitude.
The wearer adorns
the beautiful piece
and takes pride in its glare
that pierces across the bulkiest shields.
