Poem on venturing out after a long time
A delicious warmth flows through
Sensations unfelt tingle unfettered
My sister and I are a homebrew
Never considering we are shuttered

The confines of our abode never stifle
Nor cramp nor unduly crowd
Food aplenty and no real trifle
Peaceful, calm and never loud

We joyfully share our reducing space
On our own but yet together
At times in each other's face
Bound in solitude with a tender tether

A commotion outside says it is time
To depart from the safety of the long night
We kick and scream in the blood and grime
Entering the world doesn’t seem right

Do we have to leave, our unseeing eyes say
Nine months went by in a glorious flash
Our mother’s embrace soothes nerves in fray
And thus we are born with an indelible splash
