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

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

Envy

Hi! I’ve been gone so long that I wonder if any of you remember me any longer? Was home for the weekend . Wrote this one in response to ‘Envy’ at the Daily Post. Just my way of saying hello to all of you 🙂

Perhaps

You hurt me. Perhaps you didn’t mean to  But you did. It’s not your fault That I hurt so easy. Or maybe it is… I had a hide. The hide I use for strangers. Strangers?  Because they hurt. Over the years I have learned to wear one. But you peeled it off. Tricked me into…

The Perfect Dream

  When you sleep Huddled in bed What is it That you dream of?   The small smile That plays on your lips That one Right there What does that mean?   Is it a friend? Playing a favorite game A song, some birds Do you know their names? Or is it me? Something funny…

The ‘Parent ‘ Train

The parent-train We feed them and we burp them We love them to death We scold them and scare them Watch their every step We coddle them and discipline them And teach them all we know We help them scale heights And hold them when they’re low From the moment they are born Till the…

Careful

Careful! What you do With that. Lay it Someplace high Don’t let it be stomped upon Its precious secrets squashed Spread all over the road For all to see Yet don’t hold it too high Or it may topple over Scattering Millions of dearly held dreams All over the pavement Where he walks Crushing its…
