Starry Remembrance


Tonight I spotted a tiny star

All alone and twinkling so far

In the black and moonless night

It sure stood out shining so bright

I gazed at it in a silent daze

As if hypnotized in a lightly haze

It brought memories of the shooting star

I had the blessing to see in Ladakh

I’m grateful for nature’s beauty though

I’d wish I could see so much more

Not just one star but a million of them

Twinkling away as if happy within

Tree Life

Tiredness reels in

every remaining

stem of her soul

Valiantly fighting

the evils of humankind

she tries to regrow

But the heart

bleeds no more

Her cries are lost

on deafened ears

Wilting, withering

she gives up

She is no more

Au Revoir

I bid adieu

to posting anything new

With a crappy internet connection

there is only so much I can do

I hope to return sooner than I wish

But, I’ll be realistic, I doubt I will

Scheduling posts takes forever

The connection, you see, is steady never

Replying to comments might be easier

if I just fly to the respective places

and tell you to your faces

So, off I go to write some more

and keep them handy for my return

In the meantime, my dear friends

visit, read, or post a comment

I might be late in responding

But be assured, I will not be forgetting

you or your blogs, for I love to read

your words, your stories, your journeys

For when I return, be prepared

for a bombardment of encouraging

words in the form of comments

To say that my internet connection sucks would be an understatement; it took me five tries to upload ONE post. This one. I managed to schedule just a few more before I gave up. I’ve lost count with the number of times I had to switch it off and switch it on again to be able to even upload the posts. So, till it has been resolved and works smoothly, I will swoop in like an eagle capturing its prey and escaping. You know, dive (visit), grab (comment), and escape (leave). Unfortunately, I am not able to visit everyone’s. Sorry about that. I will visit though. Hopefully sooner rather than later. In the meantime, happy writing.  Cheers!

Be You

You are you

You were born to be you

So why try to be

anyone else but you?

There will be no one like you

because you were made

for the sole purpose

of being you

So stop denying yourself

your own uniqueness

Accept and embrace it

and show the world

your wonderful you

In response to Jacqueline’s Thinking Corner

Make Life Fun!

Is life hard, is life easy?

Which is true? I’m confused

The pain, the joy, tears, laughter

Are said to be part and parcel

One day we’re crying

shedding our sorrows

Next day we’re laughing

 like dancing flowers

it is how we take life to be

Or maybe it’s how life takes us to be?

Either way one thing is true

Life can be fun if you want it to

P.S. Stuck with a crappy internet connection so might not be able to put up posts or even comment on your posts. I will pop in and read as much as I can and when the connection stabilizes, comment too. In the meantime, feel free to visit and read any and/or all of the posts you like and if you feel like it, leave a note or two. Hoping to be back soon. Cheers and sending love your way!

Field of Light


the peaking sun

spills its rays

shining its glory

over the fields

awakening the blooms,

Faces turn towards

the light, rejoicing,

smiling, they are

with joyful eyes,

bristling with love

as wind blows

through the petals

they dance happily,

merrily, full of life

Blank would be
the walls of your life
If you do not fill it
with colourful times
Go on, get out,
go and explore
Do not let those walls
be empty and morose

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
‘Till you find your dream.
