SOMETHING ELSE


There are millions you meet in your short stay, here in this mortal world –

yet something in particular do you in them, find to love.

It’s not beauty, not compassion, no not kindness either – it’s something else you love…

Something there are no words to paint a picture with; something immeasurable in worth.

It’s something that a few possess, in the depths of their soul;

something only a kindred spirit, with knowing eyes can behold.

What it’s called, where it’s from, what brings it about- you do not know,

yet what it makes you feel, in everything you do, does show.

They are one in hundreds, maybe in thousands, who posses this fruit for spiritual growth –

Old souls, from faraway lands, from many past lives come forth…

There’s something to love in them, something with naught plausible description-

something that binds you wholly to them, not merely a fleeting connection.

No, it’s not their education, nor the outward affection, not a helping hand, nor fatal attraction;

there’s something else you love; something high above,

something you can explain to none, something once found is never gone…

There are millions you meet in your short stay, with so much in them to love

But there’s something else, there’s something else in some.

    1. That is my favourite line in this piece too, Aquib! Thank you for showering it with such wonderfully uplifting words, since I have always been unsure about posting it due to its imperfect structure 😊 Means a lot!

  3. with every line you pour
    I couldn’t agree more
    That there is something in your art
    That, from everyone else, sets you apart

    Love this post, Isha. There just is something else, there’s something else in some, like you say. And like I told you some days back on A’s blog, the fibre gets stronger when one goes deeper….it works the same for your poetry.
    This is my favorite of yours, until you come up with another something else. 🌹😀❤️

  4. You’re an old soul, who knows it all. And you know what that something else is, but it doesn’t have a name in this mortal world.
    Cheers for a wonderful and insightful post. I know, I will be lost for days, in thought, and in that ideal moment when nature knocks at one’s heart.
    I am not hungry any more. Lots of food-for-thought.

  5. The best we can manage when we try to reason love is to say there is something else, something beyond reason. Such an inquisitive and in some way introspective post, the more I read the more I feel there is something else about Ishaisms

    1. I stand a spoiled blogger as of this moment, with lavish praises heaped on a silver platter!
      I particularly like your words on it being a reasoning for love…👌
