Hello! 

Hello old friend! Remember me ?  There was a time when moments spent apart felt like years  When the chatter was endless Filling morns, noons and nights Sleep felt like a fiend That snatched away at precious time Now years have slipped by without a word Doesn’t the silence bother you ?  It stifles my heart…

The Cat on the Moon

Almost no one is aware, On our moon – A cat is there! She purrs gently and sleeps all day, But at dusk as  the world turns grey And Mr. moon  begins to walk the sky, The wicked cat slyly opens her eyes Meowing “I’m hungry for tiny girls and boys, Who forgot to tidy …

She had some dreams

She had some dreams She had dreams that were star-filled skies She had dreams that were sleeping baby’s sighs She had dreams that were raging forest fires She had dreams that were noisy bazaars with impatient buyers   She had some dreams She had dreams that were an eerily quiet  graveyard She had dreams that…

Barbed Wires

I am participating in napowrimo – 2017. Today, I haven’t followed the optional prompt, choosing instead to let creativity be my guide… hope you enjoy my take on ‘barbed wires ‘ 😊

Words

Words, Words, Words These horrible, ugly words They cut, bruise and chill They cause hate and repel   Words, Words, Words These gorgeous, uplifting words They create, repair and heal They help to love and feel   Words, Words, Words They give and they steal Fictionalizing  truths Making  realities surreal   Words, Words, Words These…

Unseen

This post is written in response to the prompt ‘unseen’ at the daily post  Tantalisingly It beckons Promising untold pleasures Unbelievable treasures Fulfilment and glory Fun, Freedom & Fantastic stories Yet Clasped firmly  By shackles of silk Prisoner of Choices made lifetimes ago I remain   Craving for –  The  unseen  This post is written…

Believer

If you’re a believer, come in  Why should it matter  What you eat Where you live What clothes you wear How you tie your hair  How old you are Who your parents are What jobs they do How you cleanup after loo The colour of your skin The language you communicate in If you believe …

A Wishlist

I wish to Chase ponies with golden manes Run through meadows that know no end Watch the sky as stars shoot out Run up a hill to breathlessly look down Listen to waves as they crash the shore In a strange land while all alone Stumble upon a childhood song Cool wind against my face…

awakenings

Night murmurs Breaking the dream I hang By a thread Slumber turns her head Like a scorned lover Dawn tantalizingly beckons Revealing only glimpses Between two worlds Wakefulness and stupor Light and shadow Future and past Coveted yet unclaimed In a limbo I lie

Dragon For Tea : A haiku challenge

Came across this interesting Haiku Challenge based on a poem by Miss E – An Eight year old little girl. The two prompt words are ‘Dragon’ and ‘Invite’. Who could possibly pass up a challenge like that? Hope you like these Miss E 🙂

The Word Eating Mongoose

He peeped at me , from behind the stone As if asking, what I was doing in his home I offered him a Chocolate treat Sort of like a ‘Thank-you for having me over’ gift The chocolate he scorned at “Even mongoose ‘ave got to maintain their weight Besides the give  and take must be…

Window 

  Through the window    She watches   The long tarred road    That winds down    To the big city , dazzling  with lights   The place where dreams are spun   Longingly she looks  At the woman  Driving purposefully by    How fulfilling her life!   How meaningful!   She sighs      …
