Love

Love

Love is the thread
Emotion and feeling are the strands

Understanding is the yarn
Relation is the fibre

Relaxation

Relaxation

Mind is stressed
Mangled and occupied

Untangle from monotony
Umpteen ways brings you gay

Hobby ploughs
Happiness glows

Stroll outside
Shield anxiety

Talking and sharing
Updating and debating

Listening to music
Line with melody

Painting pictures
Pooling features

Relax and rejoice
Relish and relief

SPRING

SPRING

SPRING

 

Pleasant awaited time of the year
To enjoy the green meadows,
Colourful hill slopes, scented plateaus…
An entity of Paradise on earth.

In warm sun and magical showers–
Cooing cuckoos, chirping birds,
Buzzing bees and nimble ants
Display life all around.

After a period of cold winter gloom,
Flowers start smiling in their full bloom.
Tall trees in their best colourful attire
Cast their charm and beauty far and wide.

If we had no winter,
Spring might not be so pleasanter..
Good or bad never remains for ever,
Worthy lesson from Mother Nature.

The thing with Writerly Insomnia

The thing with Writerly Insomnia

I hail from lands that might seem strange to you my dear
So I have many things to tell you
But I waste much time in trying to make the story short
and encoding it in the language you understand
Sometimes I get lost in poetic mazes of my own making

As for my bloodshot eyes
it’s just a “thing” that comes with writerly insomnia

But you see
the “thing” with writerly insomnia is life threatening:
I have been staring at blank pages for hours
pondering:
the ink I put, wont it only yield blotted pages?
