An ode to chocolate with this double haiku A silky repreive, That deep burst so ecelectic, A pure ecstasy! Banishing my blues, Soothing my inner tempest Leaving tranquil trail!
The metropolis melange, Anonymous faces, Faceless, Countless, Buzzing by. And I, Lost in the crowd. Then, A kind look, A stranger in the crowd, Smiles, And holds my hand, As I follow him, In the city maze, A friend in solitude, No ifs and buts, No gives and takes, Just a friend with no name!
My heart, They peer into And see the hues that bleed, And incandescent hope undimmed, I shine.

New beginnings, New hopes, New dreams to unfold! As you light up myriad lights, Their luminiscence sparkles in your eyes, As you aspire to tread on paths, Where you feared to tread. The incandescent glow, It lights your way in dark. Come what may, You know you will find your way. You got lost in… Continue reading Happy Diwali
Life goes on, On and on. On one day, And another, It is the same. So? I ask , Ask this, This to myself, So often. But? But what? Life will go on, On and on, A punctual clock, Each day the the same, Each minute the same, Each second the same. And I? I… Continue reading A soliloquoy
