If tomorrow Comes

If tomorrow comes, It will be, A harbinger of things new, Ushering in an ardent hope, Unearthing a cache of hidden dreams. If tomorrow comes, It will write new stories, Etching the leaves of time, Erasing the tales of yore, That mean no more. If tomorrow comes, It will heal old wounds, Festering animosity, Now… Continue reading If tomorrow Comes

Ivory Castle

She lived in an ivory castle Walls lined pink, And sky blue. Its wide expanse, Laced with a mystical beauty. Air fragrant, It blew with melodies profound. The sun shone, A luminous white all around. She sat there happy, She lived weaving dreams, Dreams of life to unfold. She looked high and low, Searching for… Continue reading Ivory Castle

My heart ( a cinquain)

My heart, They peer into And see the hues that bleed, And incandescent hope undimmed, I shine.

As the clock strikes twelve, The music will blare aloud, As the… Continue reading Good- bye

A bubble – a haiku

She floated through storms, In iridescent bubble, But unscathed she shone.

A wedding ( a Limerick)

It's the season of weddings. The media is splashed with celebrity wedding pictures as we gape in awe at the couture costumes and dreamy sequences, a page out of another world. We dream and conjure of living that glam dream. But mundane people like me can only look from afar and watch the hoopla with… Continue reading A wedding ( a Limerick)

A new Day

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

Hoping against hope, Fighting her life's stormy tides, She anchored future.
