turning turtle

it is my rotten luck
you departed so long ago
yet ignite my soul

ignition turns turtle
you intuitively seek it
I depart hurriedly

clouds roll over

sky churns like butter

turbulent clouds roll over
you watch for night rain

rains beat on unwashed windows
dirt gets washed away
you are again as spotless as ever

goodbye, turbulent thoughts-
let the clouds roll away those
and may the bigger picture
enclosed within you
give way to rhapsody of senses

flinching fiercely

when squall hits the walls
rust dust gets washed away
cawing of the crow reverberates
fierce rains follow
I watch it all from my window
playing with a tendril of my hair
my eyes feel dizzy
my plans for emporium visit
too gets washed away

I sprinkle pepper on my toast,
flinch at its raw taste
that gets me back on earth
I know my saffron dreams
will materialise tomorrow or so-
emporium visit is but an excuse
to ignore the festering fissures
which refuse to heal

why I negotiate
your so very random emotions
but let myself ebb?

a blow

beauty hunts for joy

forever becomes a thing
winds blow it away

rosy mask

velvety soft,
the delicate petals
tender gentleness
into our being,

the subtle scent
touches our soul
its wholeness
fires our love

we sing paeans to it

yet the rose hides its pain
behind the masks of thorns
and I wonder why

saintly mind gets lubricated

brash words on that message board
crash to the ground
like a saint you stand there
listening to the reverberating sound
it is your doing or undoing
(have it your own way,
think what you like)
one by one, everyone walks away
you stand there alienated

if only you had lubricated your mind
you wouldn't put those words out there
and suffered because of it


There has been no end to my PC woes. I desperately need a new one and looking for the best offer. Until then my appearances would be sporadic. What else can you expect, when I am using my nephew's PC! Until I get a new computer, please bear with me.

mystical dawn

bamboo shoots beat against each other
the sound of it
in the silence of the night
scares away dark thoughts

how long have I been awake?
it seems like forever
aeons of time merging into it
is it morning yet?

bellowing curtains
shadow the moonlight
when dawn breaks in,
into the room

I fall asleep deeply, dead to the world
but very alive in mystical one

ode to imsomnia

each small wrinkle on the bedsheet
bites into my skin
my fingers imprint on my face
I see flickering light in the dark
behind my tightly shut eyes
an itch starts somewhere
spreads all over
I try to scratch it away
the vicarious dreams
have turned to nightmares
each subsequent one
more demonic than the former
I rock myself but to no avail
on the first light, I sit up
railroads of steamy tears on my cheeks
make a nice pattern.

"don't you wish for that design to be knitted into a scarf?

waves of oceans in my glass

water from the glass seems to swirl
looking up from my work
I find it strange
waves fall over from the edge
I try to identify the source
oceans have entered into my home
why did they deviate
and come into my home
confined themselves into my glass
I saturate my brain by pouring it on my head

my coughing fit makes me forget you
believe me, a heaving chest is the best medicine
to let go of a lost love


Still having PC woes. Will get back to visiting you all as soon as I can.

I am back after a week!

I have had computer problems from last tuesday. Hence no posting and no visting. I did check my emails from work but no blogging. However, I spent the time away from PC by reading a lot of books. I read 7 books in six days. Not bad, eh?! Maybe, we need to get away from the PC more often!

But it sure feels good to be back!

What do you do when your PC or net is down?

eerily blue

Photo: Gathering by AlicePopkorn

I erased the orange light

painted it eerily blue
outlines of the birds
flew into me
wheels stopped in wasteland
yet I found a tree
birds scattered into nowhere
but returned and gathered near me
in such a place of quietude
they too fell silent
we watched the fading light
and drowsily fell asleep

when sands came from all sides
all of us were buried alive.

"if you come and dig now,
you will discover the fossilized we."
