Restless Reflections

written by: Nara Hodge



The quiet whispers of the night,
A caressing touch, a half-hidden smile.
Is it my dream? My imagination?
A restless mind’s vivid creation?

I look for answers within myself.
That is my inevitable mistake.
There are no answers to be found,
Within my soul’s restraining bounds.

To find the answers, I need to escape,
From my own self, from my confinement.
I need to release my other self
And beg her not to remain silent.

Perhaps when I confront my own fears
I shall be able to see things clear
Perhaps when I am no longer constrained
My fears will weaken, no doubts will remain.

Mother, lover, dreamer, poet, politics addict: Nara Hodge describes herself as a lover of words forever in awe of written word and the formidable beauty of poetry. She believes in therapeutic writing and often uses her poetry to express her pent-up emotions and untangle the chaotic thoughts of her restless mind. Nara refers to her writing as Restless Reflections, which is also the title of her first poetry collection in English that is currently in progress.

Nara writes poetry in English and Russian.
She lives with her family in beautiful Oxfordshire, England.
