Detached Attachment


I was waiting
For you
And you didn’t show up
while my odes started to burn …
A heartache …

After a while,
There a humble person came along ..
Seemed so at the moment …
I asked him to take a picture of me and
There I sat at the corner of a bench
In the garden …
Took some time to
Get my mood toned
Up my unsettled face …
There the man waited patiently …
A gentleman ….

Once it’s all set yet unsteady
As I was,
I heard the man said, ‘Ready?’
Twinkled at him and said, ‘Yes’
Smiling …
With the chilly breeze that was
Passing through
I preferred my warm
Jacket kept aside
And my heavy heart smile
For the warmth I needed ….
A harmony ….

Later on I welcomed a friendly
Conversation with the stranger
He seemed to like all of it …
My chitter-chattering
And laughter flowed freely, naturally …
Then we started walking
In the garden, blooming all around
An attachment ….

The balance was the two umbrellas
For each of us,
His violet, mine yellow one
We were walking and talking
Keeping the in-between distance mindfully yet our heart-felt notions were quietly replaying …
The undefined mysteries of the world, meanwhile …
Letting love in our heart, unknowingly …
After a while, we faded into our different paths
Just two strangers with memories
A detachment ….





Tell me, what is that one odd yet beautiful encounter you experienced in your lifetime?

  1. Great poem!

    For me, it is always God’s smile that smiles upon me. Every time I face a problem and am frustrated, He sends his angels to cheer me up with the most unexpected things I could ever imagine.

    Thanks for sharing and have a great week ahead! ❤️

    1. Thanks dear Katherine.

      You’ve made this clear that God’s presence is the greatest blessing of all specially when we are in odd phase of life. However, everything passes through for a reason and God helps us in our daily lives.

      Thanks once again.

      1. Ha ha… it’s perfect. Thanks…

        Rather a complete different unexpected incident occurred at the garden of a foreign country. I got over it though. Someone said, people usually are friendly there and next time I may get friendly caring gesture from a stranger as stranger.
        In shaAllah 😊

        Well, I made the whole scenario for my heartbeat continuing with the good memories only. ☺️

  2. Tell me, what is that one odd yet beautiful encounter you experienced in your lifetime

    Hi Aya here,

    Hi Roldana,

    One beautiful sunny afternoon, I had decided to travel with my small dog and my Ukulele. I found a green patch of grass and started playing Ukulele and singing. A passerby on foot had just walked a few paces past me on the sidewalk close by and stopped in their tracks. They asked if I wouldn’t mind they laid on the grass nearby and listen.

    There are other encounters odd yet beautiful with Ukulele and complete strangers. This was one that stood out to me.

    Hi Flounder here,

    One time I was at Comic-Con and we sat down and had this profound conversation.

    Thank you for your writing and question ☺️

    1. Hello Aya and Flounder,
      Beautiful people, I m so happy to have you here with your odd yet beautiful stories.

      Aya, you must’ve been playing so nice and magically that it touched that one stranger’s heart so much so that he listened to your music and singing with ease and comfort that he needed. This little encounters mean so much to the artists themselves, I can feel that.

      And yes Flounder, sometimes we have our deepest conversations with complete strangers and before we know it that one single encounter impacts us on different spheres of life.

      I feel it in my heart.

      Best of luck

      Love & blessings from

      1. Roksana,

        I agree. We never know how complete strangers can impact our lives. It’s amazing that when we give people a chance they will hurt us, but equally and perhaps on a grander scale they can become a part of who we are inside and out. Strangers are just friends we haven’t made (as Aya would say).



        Flounder took the words right out of my brain stem with the last sentence. Playing music on the Ukulele felt like dancing a totally new dance with a complete stranger as a partner. When that passerby chose to stay, it spoke volumes about things not needing to be perfect, orchestrated or meeting a certain expectation. I left feeling emotionally touched by a simple want from a passerby to just enjoy in whatever the music meant for them.

        It is a vibe and thanks for vibing, Roksana.
