An Old Love

A day mundane as ever, suddenly stops with a visit. from an old love, a forgotten dream. Closing my eyes, I let it, Take me back in time. To some memories buried, of days smeared with love, of nights dark perfumed by dreams. of…

A Promise is This Rain

The world is being washed, by clouds that burst, a calm is descending, upon my restless heart. A view jagged by racing drops, a cup of tea, a window sill, I soak in a moment so rare, that life is at stand still. The…

A New Beginning

Today, a new hope surges in her, Life’s blows from yesterday buried. she shakes off the sorrow, some happiness she rubs on, and ahead she moves on. Some remnants of the past cling on, but them, she fears not, after all, from those ashes,…

She Is All Woman

She is not afraid, she is not meek, to pave her own path, to accept challenges, To dream. She is all woman, she is power Tears do not control her, threats do not dwarf her, head held high, she fights back. She is all…

A New Year Slides In

Each year, just a turn in time, a change of calendars, Same me, same you, Yet, carry the hopes over, Bid goodbye to the ones shattered. Nurse those broken dreams back to health, build some new ones as you go. There are things to…

Dream On

Thousand Broken Rays

She is a thousand slivers of broken light. A shimmering illusion that I can’t catch. Love, I do, the mirage that is she, A dream I cling on to, a light I cannot yet see. At nights, the moon whispers to me, that somewhere…

Hope

Surely, a flicker of hope
still sits in your heart’s recesses

Nature Heals…

As I sit on the balcony,the landscape demands a smile.The solemn hills try to lift,the blanket of sadness I adorn. The curves of the mountains,the whispering pines,seem to hold a message,from the future I know not yet. A message that love awaits,Tidings of faith…

The Fragrances of Life

Can you smell happiness? That divine scent of freshness, of some sun and dew mixed together to create a heavenly concoction?I can smell happiness, in that baby’s giggle, in that first rush of love, in that bird singing, in that first payslip. And what…

Thirst

Inside of me, somewhere deep,A fire rages on, insatiable.An urge to reach higher.A thirst that is unquenchable. The cacophony on the outsideis drowned by the silence inside,A silence that screams to me,To reach that star, to dream. At nights, when I lay in bed,I…
