Surpassing the underlying connotation of the word, I recently met with the concept etched in the tail bone of a goodbye.
Seldom do we realise that the paths like our neurotic maze have cross roads and junctions. These nodes are the points of emanation. That radiate new thoughts, new people. However we forget the wires that had culminated in those nodes, are tied with a knot. Knot symbolically represents a frozen word. A frozen act.
The beginning of a new path, does not necessarily has to mean the end of the previous link. It exists. Within the maze.
In an alternative universe, an equally exuberant you, would have chosen some other thread to tie a knot and make a node. Completion of the maze had to happen.
Taking on from there, whenever I look back at the strings I chose to knot and freeze in the building of my maze, I do not feel it is lost on me.
It is all the way, along with me.
In My journey.
Goodbye, would mean nothing, if you continue to carry love for the choices you made to satiate the burning desire of your passionate love, or to brim your days with laughter and nights with songs.
It means, I will meet you, in the field again. Given you keep shining in the bright zigzag pattern of my life.
Your spark will bring me to thread you again in my present, because I continue to be the bird, perching on a taller branch, looking at my life from a bird's eye angle, and I see you gleam.
Do ask me often when I look at you, "kya ab bhi muskurati ho? Kya ab bhi ishq farmati ho?" * Do you continue to smile, do you continue to love? *
I will meet you again. To part once again.
And on and on this would go. -Kanksshi ( from the plains to the mountains) #AR
