Never say never

Never say never

As the clock ticked by,

the virus returned in a

lethal avatar

 

Note: For those who thought that they had defeated COVID and it was all a thing of the past, unfortunately with the 2nd / 3rd / 4th waves, the virus has reminded all of us that we are mere mortals.

Leaving home – A birdie’s journey

Leaving home - A birdie's journey

As I saw the birdie fly away, I

imagined how humans flew from one place

to another in search of happiness

Keeping him in her memories

Keeping him in her memories

It had just been a while since he was gone. Her world revolved around him from morning to night. And now, he had just been cruelly taken away from her.

Her mind just kept wandering back to the last time she saw him. The day was as hectic as it could get and she had never ever been this busy. While she had been a tyro at the start, she had built a strong career in the decade she had worked at this organization. And things had just kept getting busier. She didn’t even have time to bid him goodbye while leaving home. Little did she know that that was the last time.

She kept reading about rebirth and also hoping for a message in a glass bottle from him indicating that he was fine.

She believed – If you are a dreamer, come in.

 

Note: The line – “If you are a dreamer, come in” is from Shel Silverstein’s poem Invitation as published in his book Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Her Dreams

Her Dreams

While her eyes didn’t aid

her, her hands and feet worked in

sync to change her life

 

Note: Inspired from stories of those who achieved their dreams onstage despite losing their vision at an early age.

Beguiler

Beguiler

While the king had an air about himself

along with an eccentric persona,

his jester was a prankster and a charmer

Doing your Laundry

Doing your Laundry

Washing, drying and

folding clothes was a routine

he became used to

 

Once everything was

set, the washing machine came

to life with a rumble

 

It had a life of

its own making the clothes dance

amidst the detergent

Cycle of Seasons

Cycle of Seasons

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.

While spring is the time for new plans to look forward to,

Summer is the time for so many outdoor activities.

While autumn is the time when colours and seasons change,

Winter is the time for getting in the warmth and spending time with family around the fireplace.

As the seasons change, so does a lot in our lives.

A Painter Without a Brush

Colours of Life

The painter gave life to a plethora

of colours which define life in all its

shapes and forms with several ups and downs.

 

Note: The poem is inspired from the abstract art titled – ‘A Painter Without a Brush’ (Gerhard Richter)

Translucent Window

Translucent Window

As the flood of light inundated the

room through the translucent window, he felt

a rush of energy only to have

his stomach in knots at the thought of the

approaching cyclone which was enough to

scathe them leaving a ton of damage behind.
