First day of summer

First day of summer

It had been a long hard winter with coronavirus wreaking havoc day after day. It was heartbreaking to see people struggling for their lives as the medical community began to buckle under the constant stream of patients. The dark clouds of uncertainty hung over everyone’s life.

But the vaccinations provided a silver lining amidst these dark clouds. And as the first day of summer began, these vaccinations were speeding ahead and began to show that there was light at the end of the tunnel. As the sun shone bright, the brightness in people’s lives also began to take shape.

Dark night sky

Dark night sky

The dark night sky

so many stars wherever you see

peace and quiet around,

a time to reflect

 

So many stars wherever you see

that light up the night sky

in all its glory

 

Peace and quiet around

with miles and miles of desert

without a single soul around

 

A time to reflect

and introspect for everything

that has been and always will be

Journey of life

Journey of life

The train chugged along

identical tracks, but the

surroundings kept changing

 

The journey of life

and death is the same for all

but people encountered are different

The day she was waiting for..

The day she was waiting for..

She was waiting for

this day but now that it was

here, she got nervous

 

This wedding was what

she had always wanted and

her parents agreed

 

Though it went well,

she became teary eyed leaving home

and had to avoid smudging her makeup

Finding one’s way

 

Finding one's way

Being a tenant in an integrated township, he had felt thankful during the pandemic. Amidst the endless lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, he felt happy seeing people around. While the world outside had changed, there was at least a sense of normalcy when he was in the township. As people shared each other’s pain, the community grew stronger.

But as he stepped into the world outside, he could hear a voice echoing in his head warning him of the dangers that lay ahead. He was unsure on what all had changed.

“Crucial to finding the way is this: there is no beginning or end.” He knew that he couldn’t rush into the pre-pandemic life in a matter of days or weeks. The health measures need to be followed as the health threat was still elevated.

It would be a slow return to business as usual.

Left at the altar

Left at the altar

We loved each other

to the moon and back but you

left me at the altar

 

We promised to be

by each other’s side but you

left me at the altar

 

We had some lovely

times together but you

left me at the altar

 

What started as joy

turned into depression as you

left me at the altar

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Story of a Dragon Fruit

Flashy and rigid

on the outside, soft and calm

on the insides

 

As I cut it, I

visualize the power and

strength it symbolizes

Curiosity

Curiosity

As they lay watching

the stars, they felt pure bliss not

having to stress out

 

But in the dead of

night, a shape-shifter had

other plans up its sleeve

 

While they got curious,

it went berserk posing a danger

to anything in its path
