The Dawn Of The Soul..


It was almost morning

When I heard the voice.

A voice that said, “You got to wake up!”

Loud and clear like the tinkling of a bell

A voice like no other

Melodious yet firm

gentle yet powerful

Exhilarating mind, body and soul

Pulling me to my work desk

Till I sat upright

with restless fingers typing frantically.

As the words began to pour out

I could feel the constriction in my throat melt

gradually but perceptibly.

I breathed easier

And a golden warmth surged through me

taking away the simmering restlessness

that had haunted me for days

Possibly a sign that I was drifting

Till that voice of my soul’s dawn woke me

To tell me that I have a dream

A dream that seeks me like I seek it.

And this time I won’t let it slip away

I won’t let the tinkling of that bell

fade away.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
