This is in response to Thursday Poetry Writing Competition hosted weekly by H.R. Phoenix, an excellent blogger! This time we had to experiment with different kinds of poetry styles and to begin each verse with the same letter! Continue reading “As…”
That wonderful Golden time
When I was ickle
Very naughty, a little haughty
Innocent but not fickle. Continue reading “My Colours!”
It was on the news yesterday that an army of locusts has attacked the crops in various parts of India! They might even head towards the city in which I live though I wish and pray that they would return to their home, their habitat and cease the havoc they’ve created!
Evelyn Glennie, a Scottish multi-percussionist who despite losing her capacity to hear at the age of 12 didn’t give up music! She couldn’t hear the sounds but felt it in the most amazing way! Once she’d heard (felt) a drum playing and in her words…
“Suddenly I realised I could feel the higher drum from the waist up and the lower one from the waist down.” Continue reading “The Sound Of Music!”
Read it slowly, feeling the sensations!
It all happened in a SECOND!
Vision obscured, engulfed in pitch black Continue reading “SURPRISE!”
Through these lines, I have tried to capture a moment … a moment spoilt by the dark magic of misunderstanding. Sometimes we do what we don’t mean to and how that small mistake turns into a blunder changing everything! So, friends keep your calm and don’t let the perils of misunderstanding hover around you! Wishing you a happy read and even a more joyous day ahead!
Descending from the marble stairs
Diving into this fast pacing world
My eyes caught something,
A glimpse of the little me…
Posing happily in the photo frame,
Flashing my bright white teeth,
Hair disheveled but still beautiful.
Her shiny black eyes held mine
And I swam into them and kept staring blankly…
There it hung a wooden plank
Beneath me, a maple tree.
A little girl would hop in her pigtails
Swaying her frock, playing with the frills.
She would sit on her majestic throne – a wooden plank!
And in her sweet voice she yelled
“Higher Daddy! Higher I wanna go!”
Their laughs echoed in the valley
As the swing launched high
Towards the infinite sky…
At the shards of glass
So alike me!
Like waves kissing the shore.
You must be wondering why I’ve written this date! August 30 – It’s my friend’s b’day today!!!
Happy B’day Krishna!
