That Summer

It was the summer of possibilities of hopes that filled the heart, of dreams that strained to come true, of joy that was smug and proud. Youth can be foolish, I knew not then, invincibility a mirage, I knew not then, hopes, frail,a dried…

Will Love Stay?

Love arrives, raw and simple bringing along cousins questions and complexities. Will love stay, will it grow? Or with time, wither, will it? You step into the unknown, love rendering you fearless, You believe that it will all be roses, dreaming of a happily…

The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

She see a tiny dot that glows, A blob so blinding that she blinks. She edges closer, parched and dry, The darkness still trying to swallow her. The light comes closer to her, Or she to it, she knows not, But it beckons, it…

The Light That Parted Water

As the waves of life pin me down, I wonder if drowning would be easier Will it set me free, will it bring peace? But then as I sink deeper and deeper, I get a glimpse of what I know not. A light breaks…

The cloud that walked with me

A lone cloud floating in the azure vastness, a walking companion, it decided to be. A step I took, and so did it, I smiled, and it seemed to too. I trudged along my path, lonely, Not another soul in sight. The amiable cloud…

When We Laughed Easy

The warm hearth of my home the cocoon that was my mom’s hug the small joys that made me laugh the hearty soups,the muddy puddles, all beckon, take me back, life. Oh, the games we played , Raindrops racing against the pane, Cricket in…

Time

Ah time, you are closing in on me, I hear the screech as you come closer. The incessant ringing becomes louder, Life has passed me by. You, time, have won, by far. Dream stay dreams, hopes still hopes, I had so much to do,…

The Whispers of Nature

The ocean whispers to me sometimes, sweet nothings that lift my heart. With a whoosh of the waves, with a sea shell left behind, it says, I will be all right, after all. The azure sky sometimes smiles, as a message from the heavens,…

My Dad’s Old Car

My dad’s rickety old car I now wish to ride The one that would break down always, too lazy to carry its passengers to places in one single smooth ride. A tyre puncture, overheating, an oil change would always punctuate a road trip. Stranded…

Write That Story

The pen pauses, the paper still blank. A scribble, a shake of the head a hasty tear of the page, In the bin it goes, its resting place. Is that you above, is that your life? Pause, think, ponder, are you still scribbling and…

A Kite I Am

A kite I am, stuck in a tree, Waiting for a gust to set me free. I wish to soar in the blue skies, I wish to feel the whish of my wings. The branch of the tree grips me hard. Struggling, despairing, praying,…
