Solitude

 

solitude

 

As we share a cup of steaming tea

O’ so warm, on a rainy day

Train of droplets slithering down

To lock their lips on a glassy pane

 

Rising up the browny brew,

A film of vapour twirls and swirls

A dance of intimacy that holds us tight

A solitaire of silence in your eyes

Winter

20151114_162551

 

Winters are inevitable in life …

What matters is what you make out of it …

Wrinkle crinkle and perish;

Or

Flaunt the scars with pride,
And bloom all over with renewed vigor !

Wish You A Happy New Year !

May you have the strength to break the shackles of routine
May you have the will to rise above the mundane

May you tread, off the beaten paths
Collecting pearls of learning, on your way

May you be somewhere, where you have never been
On the sun-kissed sand with windswept hair
Wading in the waves, wallowing in its ripples

May your eyes gorge on the ravines and chasms
Gaping in wonder at the snow-capped peaks

May you lose yourself in a well-crafted book
May you earn the love of a wagging tail;
The trust of a little child

May you pause, to watch a bud in bloom
May you feel the silence of the swirling snow
May the rain drench your soul and wash away the blues

May you pursue a passion for pleasure
Not for the riches, not for the glory
Just to keep you sane in a world insane

May you be blessed with a friend
Who will stand by you, no matter what
May your heart be treasured by the one you love

May you widen your mind a wee bit more
May the tears make you smile brighter
May the sorrows make your deeds kinder

May you have the courage, to do what you always wanted to
May you be brave, as the child in you!

 
This is my wish to you and self, this New Year eve!

My First Anthology – ‘Even in My Dreams: A collection of vegan poems’

From a self proclaimed writer/blogger to a contributing author…

I am proud to be part of this anthology, ‘Even in My Dreams’, which is a collection of vegan poems authored by several talented poets from across the globe.

For some one who adores books – loves to hoard, hug, kiss, smell & lick (well… almost 😉) books – to be part of a book, is just priceless !

And it couldn’t have been better timed! What a wonderful birthday gift !

Dedicated to –

My Soulmate:

The love of my life
Without whose soothing presence
Not just my pen, but my soul too
Would have simmered dry
A long while ago !

And to the two little men in my life :

For ensuring a constant supply of choices
To keep me on my toes all the while !
That priceless delicate kiss on my cheeks
For which i will do it all over again !
