Snowballs of Love


Snowballs of love
Sailing through skies
Pulling me near once a while
Scatter, combine and then just split.

Every once a while
I see some scenic prints
By the artist above that knows
Luring me in conundrums of bliss.


Illegitimate liaisons we share
Say the people who see my chase
When there is nothing remarkable in sight
I see it still, for lies awakened , forlorn lover in me.

Running behind, I capture
The white essence spilled on the blues
I fail to understand the malleability in store
For in a second, a new story unfolds.


I love the evenings, when they mix around
With the sun, that so dearly, they often hide
Hints of hues, peek through, and I smile
Sunsets, were never, just so breathtaking.

Some days, they show me, their dangerous side
Blackened, in anger, they engulf the whites,
Mixing with sparks of light, they spread all over
To let darkness, just rule the invisible sky.


Then, when I am numb, at their marvelous creations
They stumble me, with more of their devilish roars
Quickly they break, to pour, all that was inside
Drenching the earth, and wavering my timid inside.

I smile, some prayers answered, says the aura around
They quickly fly away, even before I could, look aside
I know, theatrics will return , maybe less magnificent
For every evening, they only paint heaven, on earth .


P.S. : Off late, I again started writing poetry after months. But this time, it’s different. Been instagramming my poetry too. Different elements in life inspire me now and I am liking it. Keeps me sane. Also, been doing a lot of mobile photography and yesterday I did a little bit more of it and a poem purged out of me before I went to sleep. I am using my own photographs for any piece after long. Hope the mix of words and pictures makes you like this post little bit more.

Romancing Nature


Morning sun smiled with the breeze today
Guess he knew I will just love the day
The thunders got mixed with the splashes
My window pane was frightened with the ‘plops’.

Rains are often dim and at times very gray.
But then they brought a different chill now
I woke up with the ‘yawns’ and felt some warmth
I disliked them once, but winters are my new love.

My scared kitten ‘purred’ as I gave him some cozyness
Even the birds were quite happily ‘chirping’ alone
The greens of my plants were in extreme jolly moods
As I sipped some cardamon tea amidst a beautiful morning.

Day just slipped by without much to my doing
Windows were today opened to let in the smells
The ‘scent’ we call petrichor I can never explain
But it fills my day with just certain misty romance.

Evening walks are still the favorite part of the day
Today the street dogs didn’t do the usual ‘bow bow’
For they were intoxicated by the incense of nature
And I just strolled away with some music to ears.

Splashing some water here and there, I saw serene beauty
I was just waving away to the scenic beauty of the moon
Stars whispered, and some insects made their ‘shooo’ sound
Solace was in the sky as I asked my mind some questions.

Night is here now and I sit here below my dear old fan
Home is silent as if signalling me to go to bed
I find my peace in the sounds of my computer now
As silence is my best sound, when my words speak.

Today I romanced myself fighting all cynicism
Found love lost in the season which is dear
I seek to spread my wings and fly once again
And send you across the sound of just true belief.
