Lohri(a haiku)

Today is the festival of Lohri in North India. Sitting in the biting chill besides the bonfires,basking in its warmth and revelling in the love of our dear ones. Crimson ember sparks, The wintry haze shuddering, As new hopes dazzled. .

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 burlesque

Life, A burlesque, A comedy of relations entwined, Each into its into own, And never into yours. You give them all, And they take it all. A caricature of love, A friendly charade, And downsizing. Its part of the game, So just sit back, And enjoy, The burlesque of life.

Insidious: Word of the Day Challenge

An insidious wave of ecstasy, It overwhelmed her soul. What was once a forbidden fruit, It was now hers to relish. She had the courage to shatter that illusory glass, It had encaged her spirit in its shimmery visage. She scrubbed off the gloss, She did it hard, She did it long. She reached to… Continue reading Insidious: Word of the Day Challenge

New beginnings

She had learnt how to love herself, And that was the most dangerous weapon of all. She changed the hoary paradigms, As she set precursors new. New beginnings, Distant shores, Lands beyond and unknown, She strove to find her lot.
