Diminishing Moments and Hope

Breathing struggles to rhythm with the excesses of a hasty world Floating dreams have to descend to the summons of impatient voices Morning’s youth spent in the unnecessary errands Tender moments wilt before they can bloom in worry-free moments Spirit’s merriment curtailed by the hypnotic shrill of quagmire Moments frozen in the void chills the heart and shivers judgments Tears held back are settled in the … Continue reading Diminishing Moments and Hope

Tough Challenges

Moral ideas are not aesthetic enough for a crooked world. We allow (or are forced to alter) our thoughts, innate character to be transformed by a deluge of external factors with covert plans to alter them irredeemably. Due to such instances, we lose control over the arguments and willingly surrender to the numerous byproducts that appear as sludge amidst the controversial free-flow of nonsense. The … Continue reading Tough Challenges

From the Light

Of Earth’s immortality spring the dreams of hope Waiting to be sheltered in the immortal soul Orb lights up with the Divine blessing  Lamentations, tears, pain, heartbreak will cease This light will endure the stormy moments It reminds the soul to awaken the mournful spirit Bring it closer to the eternal light A praying horizon surrenders with certainty May hope, gratitude, and love spring from … Continue reading From the Light

Proclivity

It’s not about the panegyric moments illuminating each word Delivered with a stylish accent amidst applaud and propaganda The demure, diligent, and defiant- an uninspiring combination Of the austere truth, speaking in a void, but resiliently escapes From the fraudulent frequency spectrum of amplified anarchy Where there is scant determination, but persistent intimidation  Once there dwelt such trustworthy voices; now only fancy eulogies Ungentle leaning … Continue reading Proclivity

A poet starts composing under different circumstances- sometimes it is euphoric love and passion or intense grief and failure. Nature and spirituality have … Continue reading The Facets of Poetry

The Reflections

As if the Moon decided to not speak with the stars Sullen moments ripple the uneasy tranquility The wide-open windows and doors lean against sulking walls Clouds offend the eternal love moments  Settled in a chair which has witnessed many such nostalgic moments The body cowers each time the heart sends some message Damp light, empty glass, incomplete feelings, bland food Many voices use this … Continue reading The Reflections

Storytelling

Storytelling is nourishing for the soul. The plan is to stir up the solitude nurture the surrounding words with feelings. The intense communication at that moment emboldens them to narrate the stories fearlessly. Stories need that resilience and fearlessness to survive curious provocation, meanness, and unwarranted analysis. The arbitrary criticisms and conjectures will follow each story at the crucial juncture of changing social milieu. Storytelling … Continue reading Storytelling

Etched in Melancholy

A morning etched in hues of smudged melancholic graphite Still! The stillness is quite unusual for a day about to begin its journey A stultifying feeling grips the wind, quite restricted and sombre is the mood When newness absorbs the sorrowful feel and oozes the uneasiness Drips the sky like the watercolour on the canvas painted by a careless painter Uneasy whispers come from the … Continue reading Etched in Melancholy
