A stole, a dupatta, an odhani, a shawl,it’s upto you, what you want to call.I have different names and different sizes,But I come to use as and when the need arises.Mommy uses me to wipe away her child’s tears,Dadi pulls me over her head when she says her prayers.Didi flaunts my vivid colors while covering […]
Lovely were the days when we had Summer vacations.Playing all day with cousins or visiting beautiful locations.Time was spent innovatively making weird creations.Involving interesting activities, not just screens for our recreations.The moments spent with loved ones strengthened our relations.Grandma’s night time tales shaped my life’s foundation.Today children utilize holidays to explore different vocations,Though it might […]
Remorse is an inevitable part of life,To revist past & avoid the strife,Could aid to eliminate a void,As no one is perpetually overjoyed. When I go back, I will allow myself,To explore all options & believe in self,To fall in love or kindle an inner spark,To not be afraid of losing or to leave a […]
She visits at Holi every year,Up above the beautiful sky is clear,My heart might find it queer,Missing a beat as she approaches near,Enthralled by the the sight of my dear,Ready to get coloured as her peer. My first Acrostic poem
Somewhere in the corner of my heart,there is a longing to get free.Free from the shackles that Ihave bound myself in.No one stops me from flying up in the sky,to break the manacles of my thoughtsand run away into the trance,which though could seem beyond my reach,but is my own mind’s sapling.It is the only […]
As you smile & wave back at meClutching the hand of my sworn enemyI wonder what was the keyTo our happiness that I couldn’t seeWhen we were close & there was no she,who caused such pain & lead to my jealousy.
Each tint & shade speaks for itselfLightness & Darkness alters what the color tells.So a few words on the hues & their impels. Red is a color of energy & passion.Pink denotes love & compassion.Marroon shows power & resolution. Yellow would stand for a bright mentality.Cream oozes calmness & serenity.Mustard mutters creativity & diversity. Blue […]
Pitter patter on the glass,Can’t I laze away in the grass?Sirimiri brings along sweet misty air,Love the way dew drops adorn my hair.The light drizzle induce lots of joy,Unlike the heavy rains which sometimes annoy.I walk in solitude as the sky goes rimjhim,The tranquility feels like being in a dream. Writing prompt was Sirimiri (spanish) […]
Before my soul leaves my cadaver,Few precious stuff I want to gather, And take with me my dear treasure,To soothe the pain, to get pleasure. The enchanting laughter of my child,The silent noise of the dangerous wild,The inspiring words by my mother,The affection shared with my father,The echoing applause after my show.The varied emotions I […]
Beauty & Serenity in every form of thee,I get very thrilled whenever thou I see. Either waning or waxing, you rotate with glee,Bringing tides & ebbs effortlessly in the sea. Waxing crescent provides hope even if new moon is gloomy,First quarter & Waxing Gibbous are filled with energy. Full moon is attainment & hence pretty […]
Prattle & laughter that echo the gathering,Heartfelt dancing and melody filled singing,Listening to grandma’s wonderful stories of kings,These are the few of my favorite things. Rom-coms & mysteries on television screen,Reading a book lying in the luscious green,Eating to heart’s content subs & chicken wings,These are the few of my favorite things. Dark or light […]
Swiftly sweeping her toes,Her humble hat harmonizing her head,Showing sweet smile she pose,With whistles & waves we applaud,Seemingly spellbound by her show.Bewitching beauty baffles us by her brilliance.
She gives me a glance,A glance that changes my stance.My stance was once full of confidence,Confidence that I could rule the world. My world now bows down at her feet.Her feet smoothly glides as she comes & greet,Greet I cannot at all, when I see her.Her beautiful face makes me nervous & blabber.
Digitalization is the need of hour.Computers occupy immense power.We don’t savor our lives any more.It’s only technology that we devour. Love & kindness have lost their worth.Life is but a road to death from birth.We don’t even try to gel together,Are we the brightest creature on earth?
Jane walked through the gallery smelling like a leftover tragedy and went to her grand mother’s room. She knelt on the floor and lifted the lid of a glass jar kept in the corner. Letters tied with jute threads, dried roses and old photographs filled the jar to the brim. Some colourful handmade greeting […]
Eat that apple,Eat that grape,Eat that banana& everything else in your plate. Eat your vegetable,Eat your rice,Eat your bread& everything else in your plate. Eat to get strong & healthy,Eat to gain proper weight,Not all kids get enough food,So eat everything in your plate. Why? ’cause that was the theme for the day in writing […]
Love is a beautiful feeling when you fall in it,Until the moment you get drowned in it hopelessly. Raindrops on the windshield takes my heart to places I wish I could wipe off from my mind.Surely, one sided love is a feeling one can only sow but never harvest. ::Unrequited Love::One-sided Love.Accepting it gracefully.But, Is […]
Dear Diary, Writing to you about today,Today was a sunday,Usually it is a fun day. Either trekking on hills away,Or Sitting by the Sea on clay,Is how I spend my day. But with Covid, Life has taken a U turn.All our days are getting troublesome.Work from home is twenty-four by seven. No work life balance […]
The twilight rays ask the Sun why he leaves them everyday,To change their mood from yellow to orange & then to grey?It is only to return at dawn and bring a new hope he would say. The sijo is a traditional Korean style of poetry written in just 3 lines. The first line presents a […]
My handsome Shravan,As you sit next to me,Humming the sad song inYour beautiful voice,The lyrics though unsaid,Makes me wonder whetherTime could stop standstill,The moment extend indefinitely,Earth cease to rotate &We are not required to depart. But Destiny is whatBrought us togetherAnd it will be the reasonWe need to go away.To not meet again butTo keep […]
During British rule, Cape Comorin was the name of this place,Today it’s name means an unmarried lass, It is the southern most tip of the Indian sub continent.The calmness and beauty are here quite dominant. At the colourful confluence of two seas & an ocean lies Kanyakumari,The 133 feet Thiruvallar Statue stands tall in the […]
As the water gushes down the river stream,The little drops in the sunlight glitter and gleam. Yesterday’s mighty glacier might turn tomorrow into steam,Yet nothing stops the drops from achieving their dream. They cut rocks and navigate forest just by virtue of being a team,Frolicking, enjoying on the way, they abide by ‘Carpe Diem.’ Their […]
Forgiving isn’t something you do for others,It is a gift of mental peace for your own sake.They might have behaved most cruely,But why remain tormented & cause an internal outbreak? The first step is to accept thatmistakes have been made,Though you aren’t the reason,Explanation should be arrayed. Arguments should be pacifying,Yelling shouldn’t get below grade.If […]
Growing up, always enjoying the vast sky,I believed I was a Selenophile,But when I noticed those cute puffy masses,My thoughts became worthwhile. Tiny, Giant, Light, Dark, Near, Far, Dense or Clear,Clouds have intrigued me all round the year.The Sun & Moon are at a distance into space,But clouds are something I can chase. Their mood […]
