Affectionately Yours

A place where you ain’t you, I ain’t me, A space though small but with happiness, Where you choose from the heap of desires, You put the sorrows in the detritus, Time not needed to heal wounds.   A place, I tell you nothing, you hear everything, A space with dignity between us-no illusion, WhereContinue reading “Affectionately Yours”

Responsibly Yours

Today, its not a poetry, not a prose, not an essay about any ritual or custom and not even a read on any prompt. Sometimes, a spontaneous conversation with an acquainted person or a line or two in someone’s feed on social media platform is no less a poetry or a delightful prose or aContinue reading “Responsibly Yours”

Flowerily Yours

Mischievously Yours

“Breath-taking breaths of hers when breathed in by me took my breath away” 14 words- It takes 14 words to take a breath away; well! it never occurred to me. Sammi’s weekend writing prompt #302 Sammi prompts us to use the word “breathtaking” in a piece of poetry or prose that is exactly 14 words long. Good eveningContinue reading “Mischievously Yours”

Socially Yours

Time and again, I have maintained that any poet whose poetic work is completely devoid of any component of one’s culture, customs and rituals is not comprehensive. Any great poet can be emphatic and very appealing just out of fiction or fantasy works but unless he or she picks anything bad or good about culture,Continue reading “Socially Yours”

One of the better known festival of India all across the world and which is the most colorful or vibrant of all is “Holi”. Indian celluloid has spread it all the more to different parts of the globe apart from the NRIs. The joy of Holi has no bound and it also welcomes the arrivalContinue reading “Lovingly Yours (1)”

Conspicuously Yours

Pursuing those undesired destinations, With some paths so unrecognized, Did not have the courage to follow right, And, life was not kind for anything wrong. Tired of chasing my precious dreams, Turning a blind eye to conspicuous reality, When looked back, there was no one, No miracles done by all the blessings. Do not letContinue reading “Conspicuously Yours”

Imaginatively Yours

All his fans know that he also writes under his ‘nom de plume’ of ‘B’. On the launch, the superstar said,” It’s a narration ofContinue reading “Imaginatively Yours”

Inimically Yours

Why so inimical to me, my wisdom! Why fight with a fickle mind. The one who understood did not stop, The one stopped didn’t accommodate, The one accommodated didn’t accompany, You can change the fervor only, Not the dreams I insist upon, Why not make them free for me instead, Why fight with a fickleContinue reading “Inimically Yours”

Fatherly Yours

Tickle after sobs and like smile after sorrow, Win after a loss, like hope of bright morrow, Like a big blessing, and a beautiful sparrow, Like beam of rays in path so dark, thin & narrow. Deep sense in numbness, relief in a pain, Oasis in a mirage, water spring & a fountain, Echo inContinue reading “Fatherly Yours”
