What Are These Dreams
Poem Published almost 2 years ago
99507452 25dd 45a7 80e3 68abd0e4c519 desktop

What are these dreams?
Crawling from one corner to another
sniffing intentions, longing for a berth.

What are these dreams?
Pinching you quite often,
like you craved it.

What are these dreams?
Bizarre, translucent, grey,
never telling you why they come and go.

What are these dreams?
Chasing you, haunting you for a while,
as if ghosts are superior.

What are these dreams?
Whispering a few things and leaving you ripped,
and you go figuring out the exactness of “the howl”.

What are these dreams?
A rigmarole? a candy for soul? or just a secret passage?

Ode To SUMMER
Poem Published over 2 years ago
Summer flowers 1 desktop

Sand and pebbles,

with shimmering wild cacti,

I call it Summer!

Vendors crossing the street,

with dry throat,

I see it’s Summer!

Children throwing excuses,

to skip morning assembly,

They say it’s Summer!

When beaches in Goa go naked,

and crave some Russian boldness,

They say it’s Summer!

When evenings seem more attractive,

and city parks embrace all,

Their voices declare it’s Summer!

When mosquitoes walk the red carpet,

and people go brusque,

They bite and murmur, it’s Summer!

When bathing becomes more important,

than roaming around,

Do I need to say, it’s Summer?

When you say you love Winter,

And refuse to be zestful,

Summer loses its charm.

But I say,

Listen, it’s Summer!

Let some water, summer flowers and citrus fruits make way...

The "Not so Free" State...
Poem Published over 2 years ago
Pexels photo 132184 desktop

When you say "I am free" - do those countless layers strike you?

Free state fuels those who question.
It empowers those who see beyond their disposition.

Still underestimating the strength of free state?

2016
Poem Published over 2 years ago
Woman legs girl grey large desktop

2016

No,
You were not bad
You were real.
Made us think.
Made us crawl across the floor in tears.
You did not embrace warmly every time.

In fact,
You made us contemplate.
You felt we didn't know what we were doing.
You were serious, quite often.
You were smiling upon us with scars, quite often.

But,
We know why you did that to us.
Your real side touched us.
Your silence was too loud.
Your lessons were too subtle.
You made us strong.
Beautiful and fearless.

And,
That's what we all wanted!

Bidding Adieu....

Shore's Tale
Poem Published about 3 years ago
Couple 690489 960 720 desktop

The shore was sure
When they saw each other

The shore released anxieties
When they walked unperturbed

The shore sighed
When they felt eternity!
