Begin

Awaiting small pots of gold
under dark clouds,
squinting at ashed skies
but Vibgyor wasn’t around.

Yes, intimidating whispers
may drown you alive
but learning how to swim
must begin with a dive.

Lethargic to speak,
but really more frightened than enthralled.
Not knowing that to speak
(even if without words)
is better than to not speak at all.
