FLICKER

entry picture

With every flicker
There lies a silent note ..
Of a spark 
That will ignite the hope..
Of dreams fulfilled..
Of promises sealed..
Of lives beginnings..
Of sweet endings..
Of aspirations taking wings..
Of twilight that now makes you sing..
The golden ray, bleak as it may be ..
Radiates  in itself..
A sign of life..
Waiting for that surge of power..
To ultimately light up the tower..

My Furry Friend

I have a special bond..
Created from love and trust..
He is my furry buddy, a brother of a sort..
Long I ponder at times,
What does he see..
Gleam in his eyes tell me..
He will always be true to me..

On days I feel mad,
He continues to lick me..
As if to tell me ..don't worry I will always stick with even the icky you, because I always love you..

In my happiness, his joy knows no bou...

The Embrace

entry picture

The night slips away...
Minute by minute..
Hour by hour...
I hang on to the seconds...
Awake and entangled in your power...
The memories are too strong..
Emotions too ripe..
The moods are all there ..
Wrapping me up all night..
Till sleep takes over..
These thoughts cradle me...
It's like they sense the emptiness in me..
You are my shadow embedded deep in my soul...
But I still need y...

Sleepless night

entry picture

I lie here on our bed..
Trying to sleep..
The wind is cool today..
The crickets sing away...
I hear the occasional owl hoot..
The silence of the night takes it root...
Memories of you come flashing by..
The hug, the nudge, the rolling close and the rolling off..
I can still smell you in the night cap you wore..
And as I close my eyes, desperately trying to sleep...
Your absence, leaves s...

Storm in a tea cup

entry picture

There  come days
When you fling your legs and lay in a daze
The ceiling becomes your canvas..
Of your life that was..
Its reels you through the memories..
Of Childhood friends and untold stories..
The splashing in the puddle on rainy days..
The blowing up your gum in million ways...
Those nights on the terrace in pajamas and icecreams..
Those horror movies which played on as you huddled a...

Crave

entry picture

I crave for a piece of pie and a clear blue sky..
I crave for a walk in the park as ducklings twaddle by..
I crave for the smell of the sea and roasted peanuts..
I crave for that popcorn as we sit through the puppet show that drives us nuts..
I crave for the fragrance of the orange peel you grind up just for me..
I crave for that cold beer as we discuss things far and near to see..
I crave f...

The Colourful Moon

entry picture

The colourful moon...does it exist?
A couple on the threshold of their first budding romance see its pink hues as they crave for each others company..
The ones who fought and wait for the other to come take them from this gloom see it as grey..
While the one whose love is yet to be reciprocated glances on the moon beams with a heart full of hope,
Drenched in its blue light..
The ones separate...

Love

entry picture

What is love?
It's the dew on that blushing rose bud..
It's the golden streak across the pink horizon..
It's the candy floss bought by him at the local fair..
It's the teddy won in truth or dare...
It's the stolen glance in a room full of people...
It's the secret kiss to the movie reel on the projector...
It's the smell of his cologne lingering long after he left for work...
It's the drie...

Year gone by..

entry picture

I lie in bed in a duvet on this pink December morning...
The skies are glowing in the morning blush...
The year passed by flashes in my memory scope...
Two people became one...families began....some departed souls...some struggle to live on...
Distances grew in some relationships...
And distances nurtured some relationships...
Pledges were taken...and promises broken...
Health was all some ...

Solitude

entry picture

I sit here staring at the sky..
The human buzz has reduced..
You can hear the birds chirp..
You can hear the trees sway...
The wind whistles on it's own...
The Air however feels heavy...
Heavy with doubts,fear,speculation...
Does this how the world standing still feels like?
The heart sinks a little...the brain freezes a little...
Then comes  this songbird chirping at my window..
She sin...

Boxes of Memories

entry picture

Have you looked through your little boxes of memories?
The pink one filled with a sweet wrapper given by your first beau, the little notes passed around during English classes, the photographs taken in a group with you standing next to him, the receipt of the first coffee together...the pink ribbon which tied thr first little gift,the dried flower which still find its place in the pink box of mem...

Blue Balloon

entry picture

I hold on to a dream
Like a Blue balloon on a string..
Let my thoughts flow in the possibilities that then stream...
Fear holds me back..so does doubt..shame of failing churns by thoughts in bouts...
I see only wall build up...
My dream shrinks...
Then a little hope knocks my door..
A feeling of hope rises within aglore...

Let me try, let me try..
Let me see if I spread my wings can I f...

Shadows

entry picture

I sit and wonder...see the shadows play above and ponder..creating a story of its own..waiting for dreams to be woven ...I see only the light and immense possibilities...the darkness does not frighten me ...instead it strengthens the belief...I only need a single spark to overshadow the dark shadows...I only need a hope in my heart to transform the corners into a canvas of my own expression...

Distances

entry picture

Distances are like a mirage.. It could cover seven seas.. Yet when you want to be together..seven seconds are less... Memories bind you.. With the little things around.. When a thought of you crosses my mind..I know you can feel it too.. It could be a familiar scent..it could be a phrase we shared... it could be that tshirt chosen together..or it could be story behind it... Every little thing find...

Keep going

entry picture

When the going gets tough the tough get going..

The days ahead will put us to test..
Test our Patience..
Our Sanity..
Our Endurance..
Our Resilience..
Our Empathy 
Our Courage
Our Fears
Our Hearts
Our Choices
Our Determination 
Our Love

Garner  your energies..
Negative thoughts are bound to come..
But let your affirmations follow..
We are in this together ..
Count your blessin...

Silence

entry picture

Have you noticed a chaos in all the silence...
The clock ticking away....and time slipping away...
That empty page waiting for the lines from the heart...
The lens ready for catching that ray of the rising sun...
The moonbeam filtering through the bedroom net when the room is cloaked in darkness..
Your mind doing a samba as you sit there doing nothing ...
Moments can pass by and morning turn...
