Satori by Aparma Reddy at



written by: Aparna Reddy



somewhere between
the known and unknown
a strange goodbye

sometime amidst
a dream and awakening
a rekindled spark

thoughts traveling
far-come home again
with no regrets

unspoken words
settle into the corridors
of contemplation

I sit and smile
enjoying each moment
as it swirls by



Satori means being in the moment and comprehending our true nature. A form of meditation to become ” aware” of our feelings, thoughts etc. Just capturing a Zen experience in poetry. It’s a simple haiku style poem.

As a busy professional and mother, writing poetry has helped her in meditating and relaxing. She believes reading and writing poetry is cathartic. She thinks contemplation is a great exercise for the mind: It connects the intangible mind with the tangible outside world. This connection, if genuine can produce great insights about our lives and the world around us.
