Stranger! Who are you? I don't know you at all. All these years, I lived deluded. A mirage I envisaged, Lush green and crystal blue. But sandstorms and stormy blizzards, Blew away those grainy sands of my fancy, Leaving behind a barren trail. Nothing out of nothing! It blew away those false charades, A facade… Continue reading A stranger
Steaming vitriol, Caustic fumes, Tightening smog, And the grey world! You wonder in disbelief, How much more the mire could spread! A hazy oblivion of happiness, As knoll sounds in distant chimes. You look around, Poking in crannies, Stoking the ire that wants spew, But it refuses to go. That leaden feel, And heavy heart!… Continue reading A new Day
Plastic! Garish and loud, Supple and light, It fits everywhere, All Pervading, Omnipotent, Omniscient. It has moulded all facets, All supports now plastic, Love and camaraderie, Both too cast in that mould. As I cast an eye around, Delving into the debris, Searching for a tenable hold, My hands clutch, Only that plastic cold!

When your mind wants , Nothing else, But, To go on a vacation. It wants to shut down, The constant buzz, It has drained its power. It just wants to procrastinate, It wants to stand and stare, As the world runs by. It tells you to take a pause, But you pay it no heed.… Continue reading When your mind wants……..
The hash-tag lava Spurted out that was hushed up, A torrid deluge. Making voices heard, As the heavy boulders fall, In their own craters.
Life throws questions at you, But you have no answers. You try to solve the puzzles, But the conundrum becomes more enigmatic. You try to untie the knots, But the mesh is all the more tangled. You try to simplify, But it becomes more complex. When you want to see, But you are blinded. You… Continue reading Questions
