Tick tock

Tick tock, Tick tock, Time doesn't wait for anyone Nor does it rewind And offer us a chance To re-live our favourite moments Time is its own boss The master of almost everything! The scariest of alarms The healer of the deepest of wounds One who can erase Even the ugliest of memories From our … Continue reading Tick tock

Sunlight

Hot, dry summer morning Try at it might, sunlight failed To pry apart the wall of greenery Diminished in strength from its effort It filtered through as thin beams Illuminating the tunnel of greenery With its golden beams The sun will always find a way to shine through. Light will always find a way. Darkness … Continue reading Sunlight

Twilight

The golden rays recede Forced to retreat, to withdraw, As twilight chases the day away Drawing the curtains temporarily On the daily war waged in the skies Turning the tables in the battle between the Sun and the Moon, As the balance shifts From the light to the dark The Sun makes his way to … Continue reading Twilight

Cloudy skies

The afternoon sun's rays Paints a canvas of brilliant azure Blissful blue sky Luminous and bewitching Spotted with white, fluffy clouds Wispy and fuzzy Like balls of cotton They sail across the azure sky Engulfing the sun Plunging the sky into darkness. Their ragged edges glow brightly Courtesy of their radiant victim Gradually, they release … Continue reading Cloudy skies

The runaway

Running was what he did best And he did so with much zest. He ran away from problems And he ran away from quarrels. He ran away from responsibilities And he denied all liabilities. Never did he have to face consequences. He left all his troubles for others. He ran and ran, Avoiding one obstacle … Continue reading The runaway

Personified Impermanence

The God's of the elements wrap and uncurl essences of their perfume.The guardian angels of the planet, they leave their imprints wherever they go.Concluding we know the natural wonders and phenomena revealing and concealing themselves, we concretely assume.When the clouds' burden becomes too much, water returns to Earth, to nourish the parched landGaia howls for … Continue reading Personified Impermanence

Nature is a … Continue reading Nature

A furball of cuteness

Curiosity beckons Shy little kitten explores his world one teeny step at a time. To his audience, he is a furball of cuteness overload. To him, the audience looks threatening like potential threats. He runs and jumps, out of their reach. Tired, he rests for a while safe, under a table. This poem was written … Continue reading A furball of cuteness

The man with the erhu

His mind was somewhere else, miles and miles away. His eyes had that faraway look. He was in deep thought, pondering the mysteries of life or maybe even thinking about his own future. His fingers played deftly, wielding the erhu expertly the way only practiced hands can. The music resonated in the air mournful, slow, … Continue reading The man with the erhu

Nightfall

Dusk prepares to settle down The golden prince takes his leave A cloud of misty vapour veils his exit The ripples in the lake care not that the day has given way to night Having had his fill of the beautiful scenery the lone child at the pier hurries home, hurrying to get home before … Continue reading Nightfall

Taking for granted…

Why is so that we only realise the true value of something when it's no longer ours? We go through days and years, taking so much for granted. We never pause and think, think about all that we hold dear. All that we can't live without, and yet, all that we don't appreciate... appreciate as … Continue reading Taking for granted…
