She floated through storms, In iridescent bubble, But unscathed she shone.
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)
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
Another December, Another year drawing to a close, As you muse, You see, A plethora of things not done, Milestones still to reach. You wonder, If this year ever was. For nothing changed, Nothing new, The wheels of life churning usual brew. And you trudge along, Awaiting the advent of new hour, When the bell… Continue reading Another December
When that cauldron overflows, Surging, The vent bursts open, Spewing out the simmering lava, Burning with its latent heat, Stoked over years. It flows out, It just flows, Overwhelming, Consuming, Reckless of what comes on its way. It wants to break free, The volcanic dam unshackled. It just flows, Meandering down unknown slopes.

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.

Undaunted, Adamant, I refuse to let it go, Tenaciously clinging onto it. Someday, It will rise from the dark shadows, Rivetting out from the deep caverns, Its fiery aura… Continue reading My dream
A calm repose, Placid waters, Gently ebbing and receding, The silvery surf, Now rolling in myriad shapes. The stormy surges, In my mind, Now placated. A utopia inside, A detached idyll, Nothing enters, And nothing leaves. I float free in an endless chiasm, As I shed what I did not need, The angst, The guilt,… Continue reading A calm
A beautiful thought from Bhagwad Gita... 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… Continue reading Life -it is….
A life, The trail of thought, The wave of emotion, The stormy surf on cobbled sand, A blend!
