Life -it is….

Our lives, What? A travail of unrequited desires, A quest to fill coffers, With so many and so much. The quench insatiable, Always wanting more, Never happy. And one day, It is all gone. Just in a whiff. All his life, Having been, Tantamount to not been, For he amasses nothing, He loses all, Just… Continue reading Life -it is….

As I fast… A haiku

A fuzzy mind swoons, But not a morsel of food, Still a serene smile.

You wonder

You wonder, Where your life will take you. You wonder what will be, What was no longer yours, And what will be yours, Not known. You walk on paths new, As you traverse places unknown Each day ,a new day, As plethora of challenges unfold. You live in the moment, Immersing in its depths, And… Continue reading You wonder

As I love …..

As my mind goes blank, Shutting out all the deafening noises, Boarding up the crevices, That streamed in biting shafts. I float aimlessly hither and thither, I know not, And I don't want to know. A reverie, An idyllic repose, A blissful ecstasy. The world is my own, No pretences, No shams, No charades. Honest… Continue reading As I love …..

Finding yourself

Courage hidden, A visage docile, But a steely grit, And… Continue reading Courage

Reflections galore, Musings manifold, Memories distant unfold, Myriad flashes in symphony. All roll before you, As you drift along. You hold on to them tight, Seeking solace, For… Continue reading Someday and Sometime

She lived to tell

Pages of life, Turning one by one, Each telling a story. A story of love, A story of hope, A story of braving the odds, A story of fighting the twists of fate. She was left to traverse unknown alleys, On her own she walked. She looked askance, Myriad faces drifting by, She held out… Continue reading She lived to tell

Her story

If you look on the sidelines, In the dark corners, You'll find her, Hidden by her mane, Her nose in a book. With her head in the clouds, Hiding her feelings, Away from the world, If you sat by her, While the world passed you by, She would tell you a story. Behind the pain… Continue reading Her story
