Mysterious Journey

It is true that dreams can unfold some mysterious events An unknown environment has people telling their story Like a cinema which has different characters Dreams become that big-screen where the stories will be shown They may not be audible but the passion says more than words Sometimes, it is an enigma, why such lengthy dreams appear Before the anonymous eyes; of which the mind … Continue reading Mysterious Journey

As Stories Unfold

Windows lament the gloomy days Missed opportunities to hear from the travelling winds Sometimes they mumble after a slight push Lonely for now, they have no new stories to share Out there, the busy world walks in an orchestrated way Empty seats and abandoned dreams Some forlorn faces, but most of them are stoic Different dreams rush past similar paths No glances are exchanged in … Continue reading As Stories Unfold

On the Stage

If the characters are not ready before the curtain is raised They are seen communicating in wild gestures, the last-minute reminder Of the dialogues and positions, one has to take Some of the poseur’s fill-up the gaps to create a distraction What if the curtains were raised a little later Everything would have seemed different The stage will witness the transformation Various stages of a … Continue reading On the Stage

The Story of Stories

We look at a story, as a stranger does, after arriving at a new city; with curiosity and awe or instant dislike. It takes some time to absorb the essence of a new destination where the story originates from. An introvert’s narrative is mysterious and disguised in metaphorical embellishments. It is not the language barrier, but the inability to connect with the sentiment, history, and … Continue reading The Story of Stories

Between Realisation and Healing

When no one wants to heal and speak scatteringly of some remedy Mostly unheard, a time which is misshapen, needle the pain Imposing trees and mountains, the scattered clouds, and wayward rivers Scaly feelings are increasingly uncomfortable Blighted dreams, squirming languages translate the painful moments The colourful flowers amidst folded valleys bleed silent tears All the fables hibernate between the decaying pages Hoping for someone … Continue reading Between Realisation and Healing

The Stretches and Journey

As murmurs become thin, the patience of listening wanes An imaginary bridge seems precarious and becomes a reality Stretching the mind towards a strenuous territory Rumours widen their influence during this fateful momentum Only the fools will dare to tread on the flimsy path Silence feel docile, but the congregation of clouds feel hostile Many oblique references of the past There never have been stretches … Continue reading The Stretches and Journey
