"The Earth without Art is just Eh"

I Write, Therefore I Am

I write,
In every spirit I just write
Fight or fright, whatever the plight
I write

I scribble,
In every mood I scribble
Thoughtful, or just to babble
I just scribble

I create,
Blending the heart and head, I create
A piece in every state
I just create

I record,
For every occurrence, I keep record
A lesson, or emotions overboard
I just record

I compose,
To communicate, I compose
Telling myself, or to subtly disclose
I just compose

I word,
Every piece of myself, I word
For victories, and times I erred
I just want to find words

Yes, I write,
For my being, for my soul,
For the past and every new goal
For every insight, I just write


Hold On

Hold on, don’t let go yet
It has only been some time now,
It’s growing, blooming, let it
No, don’t let go yet

The wait has just begun, right now,
You’ve only started, not waited yet
It deserves your persistence, give it
No, don’t let go yet

The liking is yet to become longing
The change is gradually seeping in
It’s transforming, don’t stop, comfort it
No, don’t let go yet

Good, bad, whatever will be, will be,
That’s eventual, hasn’t happened yet
It’s taking its own course, stick around it
No, don’t let go yet

Completing the Incomplete

A tale that can’t reach its closure,
Give it a pretty little twist,
And leave it just there.

A story that wouldn’t have an end,
Leave it for the thoughtful minds,
In their thoughts it will blend.

A saga that can no more go on,
Take it till a beautiful dusk,
And let it find its own dawn.

A journey that can’t see its destination,
Stop! Look around, maybe here is the place,
Here is the time, for the decisive aberration.

You Can

No, don’t depend.
No matter how much time
You ought to spend,
It is you who got to mend
Your broken pieces together,
Each upright, none to bend
Yes you can, just don’t depend.

Story of a Friendship that Lasted

I remember the girl I met years ago
With immense passionate ebb and flow,
A devotion and fondness so unconditional
A solidarity that started with a simple hello.

New stories and newer fun began
The two of us, an adorable clan.
An amity that knew no bounds or end
Every deal together, sounded like a plan.

We knew each other inside out
Calm confidantes, while others bustled about.
A bond stronger with every revelation,
Truest of its kind, without a doubt.

Days passed, and a year passed by
Soon one stayed, the other had to fly.
A journey destined to see its low
The girl, like a dove, with a startled eye.

Unsettling a friendship so close and deep,
Ignoring promises, I took my leap.
Accepting it all, crushed and mystified,
She had unreturned questions, for her to keep.

Memories crawled in, every passing day.
Neither she deserved, nor I meant to betray.
This was a companionship, meant for longer,
A year flew past, while courage found its way.

Finally, I met the girl, she had swollen eyes,
Her’s a heavy heart, distanced and wise.
Long awaited answers the night ago,
Were old wounds renewed, but in disguise.

Tête-à-têtes got deeper, both flabbergasted,
Sometimes dazed, sometimes distracted.
Not before long, bygones were buried deep,
Paving way for a friendship, that, for all times lasted.

Time Machine


Years passed by and moments tick-tocked
Growing older than I had last been,
To re-live it all just one more time
Ever wishing for a time machine.

In a life so short to be patient
But not enough to be impulsive,
Wish to go back one more time
See, if decisions made, were conclusive.

If I had to do all of it over again
Would I do it a little differently?
Wish to check one more time
Was it wrong, or I fared quite brilliantly.

Did I make ample mistakes
Or have I only been sensible enough,
Wish to know if I’d take more chances
Or choose more serious and safer stuff.

Would I live days ahead of each day?
Or laze around and relax more,
Wish to see if I’d run in a rat race,
Or live only my dreams to the core.

If I re-lived one more time, planned
Like a film, carefully modifying every scene,
Wish to find out, would it be any perfect
Or I’d still be looking for a time machine.

What Keeps Me Going?

Is it your soft skin
That lay on mine
Or your eyes assuring
We’re doing just fine

Is it the hope against hopes,
For a lifetime to share
Or relishing every moment
Till you stop to care

Is it the make-believe
Of one happy day at a time
Or the eternal inside the heart
An unsaid truth sublime

Is it the perhaps
Of not working out
Or the adventure to see if it does
Is what’s this journey all about

The Liebster Award


“Yayyyyiiii, I’ve been nominated”, that’s the most honest expression I can start with 😀 . I am absolutely overwhelmed… Thank you so much RD Delly to think I am worth this recognition! Coming from a superb writer as you, I am beyond honored!
Fellow bloggers, please visit RD Delly’s The Write Spot For You, also check her out on Instagram @thewritespotforyou and you will come across some really amazing pieces, that is certain to touch your heart and make you go WOW! Whenever I read her writing, I feel “Oh My God, I’ve been there, done that, how do you know” ! Yeah she knows it all and puts it in words just wonderfully!

So, Get Set Go, here are the rules:

    1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you
    2. Share 11 facts about yourself
    3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you
    4. Nominate at least 3 bloggers for the award
    5. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer
    6. Let them know they’ve been nominated

11 facts about myself:
1. I am an extrovert within an introvert, i.e. I can talk a lot to people I have really liked; with the rest I can get very quiet. Choosy, not unsocial, but selectively social!

2. I love to laugh, once triggered mine can be a laughter riot, uncontrollable and unstoppable for quite some time 😀 😀

3. I love to have chocolate ice cream after having Beer 😛

4. I absolutely do not like uncertainties. I’m sure many don’t, but I get very perturbed with uncertainties. I just want to know what’s in store. High hopes I know, but c’mon I need to know something, anything 😀

5. That brings me to the fact that I am quite impatient. I am better off now with a lot of life lessons, but I’d still call myself impatient. I’m only patient towards my impatience 😀

6. I love to travel! It’s not that I want to travel the whole world (given the means, of course I will), I can keep going to the same place again and again and rediscover it with every visit.

7. I can watch the same movie, that I have liked, a number of times. Spoilers do not spoil my mood to watch a movie with the same interest 😉 In fact I’d rather like to have a spoiler, to be at peace with my curiosity of ‘what next’ 😀

8. I cannot click selfies 😀 Yes! I just cannot! Just not able to! 😀

9. I always wish to have a time machine! There are things that I do not exactly regret, but slight changes, here and there, would do no harm!

10. Deep, long conversations about “life” attract me a lot. Breaking the ice or making small talk, not my forte.

11. My primary world is my inner self where things work based on my intuition. It’s a world of hidden meanings and possibilities.

RD Delly’s Questions for me:

1. If you could be an animal, which would you be and why?
Homo Sapien again! I feel, I still have, and will have even after I am gone, so much more to do, so much more to read and so much more to say!
2. Do you like crunchy food or chewy food?
When I’m alone, anything that tastes good will do. But outside, chewy, I don’t want people to know I’m eating 😀 , I get conscious.
3. If you could be any person past or present, who would you be and why?
Maya Angelou
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise

Oh! How I want to think like her!

4. Who do you miss the most?
Myself, a couple of years back. I was more jovial, more innocent! Now I’m older and wiser though 😀
5. Why did you start your blog?
I loved writing always but in a personal diary. A very close and absolutely biased friend, believed in me, insisted I start blogging and I did. 🙂
6. Which literary character do you identify most with and why?
At the moment I can think of Jane from Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I can recollect relating to her as the self-controlled girl with her immense emotion towards the dark, mysterious, yet intense Mr. Rochester…wow! 😛
7. Who is your favorite person?
My Mom and Dad…hands down!
8. Where is the most amazing place you have ever visited?
Recently I visited Maldives and of the few places I have been to, this enthralled me with its beauty. The way the islands looked from above before landing and the different shades of blue of the water, I was hypnotized. And, the fact that next time I visit this place, some of the islands I see now might not be there, fascinated me even more.
9. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Emotionally, in a more stable, controlled, secure, liberated and mature place.
10. What’s the best thing that ever happened to you so far?
Moments, innumerable moments that life has gifted me, good and bad, all a lesson in their own way. Moments are the best thing that has happened to me.
11. What is your favorite thing about yourself and why?
My intuition always makes me know things. It always has but it is only recently that I have been in full awareness of this, and thus my current favorite about myself. I might not be able to pin point why I believe in what I think, but I just know it is so. This helps me in taking a lot of decisions, gut feeling is what we call it I think!

I’m extremely glad to nominate:

1) My darling friend Discoverer’s Eye

2) The blogger whose posts I eagerly wait for Sundaram Chauhan Writes…

3) The Teacher who picked up a pencil and started fascinating with every post – Reggie German

Here are my questions for you:

  1. When did you mess up everything, but no one ever found out it was you?
  2. What would you name your boat if you had one?
  3. Which fictional character would you like to meet and fall in love with in real life?
  4. What is that one thing in real which is closest to “magic” according to you?

Welcome to My Humble Abode

Deep into the woods
At the left of the road
Stands a pretty little house,
My humble abode

With plants so green
And flowers so red
Take the first needed turn
And then a little ahead

Dream of the house
And walk while you dream
Make no halts
Till you reach a little stream

Inhale the fresh air
And fragrances in the heart
Resume the journey
Distance just a little apart

Take a glance at the sky
And if you find it grey
You’ll know you have reached
Only few steps away

Second glance at the sky
And if the moon will smile
The home you look for
Would be just half a mile

Now you are close
Close for me to see you
But you could see the house
If only it was true

No, no, don’t run away
In you I have tip-toed
Oh my soul has a new body
My fresh humble abode
