Out of all the many people a person meets in their lifetime, the choice is too often to spend their life with a special one. While fate keeps pulling its strings, meeting this perfect companion can feel like a hopeless dream.

“Apricity” by Nikhila Kotni expresses poetically & passionately the feelings of such a person who finally found a soulmate to spend the rest of their lives together.

Illustrated by Ajay Bogati

You were like a teeny tiny sprout

on a vast barren field.

A bright little ray of sun

in the midst of dark nimbus clouds.

The calmness that is prayed for

in between the blaring thunderstorms.

You were a viridescent island

that had shown itself after a long, endless voyage.

A beautiful butterfly,

that swirled around an autumn tree,

An egret that flew over a steady current to trigger a flow.

Just by being yourself,

you’ve become the perfect warm summer

to my cold winter snow!
