On a sunny day, with the sky washed in blue, A gentle breeze blew, I walked towards a garden, And a journey I started.   Teeming with life everywhere, I stood transfixed at the beauty there. It was then that I pondered, To find answers to questions I often wondered.   In the garden of life, who was I? To find an answer, I did […]

#WednesdayVerses : Shadows and light

#WednesdayVerses : Shadows and light

In darkness you are ill at ease, Yet in it you seek comfort. Though the demons of dark, Torment you through the night, Your afraid of what you’ll see, When there is light.   You stay where you are, For you are afraid, To walk towards the light. For then you find yourself surrounded, By the shadow of self-doubt, Which scares you more than the […]

#WednesdayVerses : Life’s ways

Often when life seems to be going okay, There’s a sudden jolt to spoil your calm. When you think that tomorrow’s a good day, Life sometimes gives you a face palm.   You don’t understand why it always happens this way, You keep asking, “Why me?”, But no answers you get, come what may, And you accept things and let them be.   For life […]

#MondayMusings : Of plans and not having them

Last Wednesday, when I was told that Thursday would be holiday due to Karnataka bandh, I kept wondering what would I do for 4 days as Friday was Republic Day and then there was the weekend.

#WednesdayVerses : The course of laughter

#WednesdayVerses :  The course of laughter

On a day when in the air, A whiff of nostalgia I catch, I remember those moments, now rare, And a walk down the memory lane, I snatch!   Sounds of laughter then echoed, While we spoke about the things we did. There were stories that had to be told, For there were no secrets to be hid.   It often started with a giggle, […]
