The sun quite surprisingly felt satiny on my skin. The wind teased my unruffled dress. I strolled past the raging traffic secretly kissing the day ahead and to enjoy my favorite cup of frothy coffee for the heart to dive in. Another day to mark it with a seal of smile.Continue reading “The Day I Met Him”
Woke up to the haunting sounds of wilderness,
A lamp in my hand I walked past the trees,
That moved taunting the past in me,
Ruffling leaves passed mumblings of fear,
Flocking feathers mimicked horror plays,
Piercing sounds played notes of silence,
Ran to a house afar that held the light of hope,
Found a worn out wooden chest,
Creaked open the answers to the quest,
Found a pen and a crumbled note,
Opened the note and I opened the eyes,
To another dawn rolled out from the sky.
Creeps into the corridor of the day,
The silence of the night,
Sweeps into the eyes of the sun,
The darkness of the sky,
Strolls across the street,
The sound of wilderness,
When day seems dreadful,
And night seems deceitful,
Let sun rise within your deepest soul,
Hope shine in your intense eyes,
And courage be your strongest armour,
To wade out to the brightest days ahead.
“I just know that I wasn’t ready for this”
“Feeling so emotionless right now”
“I don’t want to do this anymore”
“It’s better I don’t give it too much thought”
“After all I have learned my lesson”
“If you are not up for this, how much ever effort I put, it will all be in vain”
Set out on a journey to climb the towering mountain, tightly holding on to a misty picture of a foggy sunrise at heart, she never thought of the pricking stones that would make her limp. Continue reading “The Climb”
Never been in love with a movie title before, but this particular one tangled itself to a fragment of my thoughts which kept rising above the upheaved contemplations, tingling the ceiling overhead. The perpetual serenity that a pristine mind can offer seemed to be the ‘happily ever after’ song the mind was singing all long.
I stepped outside the pages of my book, leaving behind the stories I carry and undressing the characters I play, to be no one for a while. I don’t know if this is possible or whether I making it up or people like me living in books could actually venture outside. It felt so real and I was sitting at the very edge of my book, as if a girl for the first time in her life witnesses a sunrise from the mountain top, where she sits at the edge of a rock that is seated to flag off the morning sun, dangling her legs and creating invisible ripples in morning air and causing it to form cold subtle breeze that runs down the cliff to the deep forest, singing morning stories to the trees. Continue reading “Journey of a life time”
The sun flashed his glaring rays on us so distant and small while wind so soothing that came from the seas caressed the burns. Yet, it was another beautiful day. We gathered together to speak. Yes, we were there to speak. The one seated on the raised platform wore a pair of heavy and worn glasses. Continue reading “Will you take those glasses off?”
The moon so dear,
And light so near…
He surfaced the searing sands,
And sailed the soaring seas,
To save the sinking sun in me.
Isn’t he a hero?!
Rain so torrential wets my vision,
Thunder so jolting puts the nerves at trial,
Self seems heavy as log,
Thoughts give a bursting cry,
I kneel down to you O’Lord,
Awaiting the sunrise so clear,
Was it a nightmare I kneaded,
When it was sunshine you knitted,
Was it rainbows you intended,
When clouds so dark threatened,
I would only ask for your hands,
To graciously walk through your plans,
Never let me go of them,
For I wish to smile through every mile.
If someone was to ask me what that I perceive about life, I don’t think I would have been able to give a self-satisfying answer if I haven’t encountered and established a deeper understanding and relationship with Viktor Frankl’s book of wisdom, ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’. Continue reading “Let’s talk life.”

Walking towards another door, with rays of sunshine cuddled up cozily in all those bright sides of mind, eyes could only meet pictures painted with neon brights. Pressing the handle and seeing the cascading light through the sides, the curled up ones could only leap with joy. A new year, a new path, few choices and beads of memories to fuel the ethereal spark inside.
Can I tell how precious you are? I can never tell that. It is to be felt by you. Felt by you, deep within your heart. You would be wondering what I am actually talking about. I just want to put forth this question. Who do you follow in your life? Okay, you will have an answer to that. Is that source of inspiration, a petal of your family? Or is it the one whom you have met deep within yourself? Continue reading “Baby, it’s all there in your heart!”
