An evening in forest

The sallow floor-bed
sighed under my bare feet
as I followed the shadows
hiding the grey skies –
so within my reach,
yet not.
He reaches the clearing
where I stood with eyes closed,
hugging myself. He holds me
yet I feel the distant calls
of love , longing and the world fades.


This poem is inspired from a photo post by Eclipse.

The “some one”

Photo Copyright: James Rainsford. Used with Permission.

The only name he smiled at,
the only eyes he looked for,
the very smile to flatter him,
the only girl he wished to live for –
today she remains in heart and mind,
a memory of a long-lost time.
From everything to some one special,
the transition happened without cause;
the face was never captured in photo,
it was meant to stay as a muse unknown.

Secretly she carried
a neon sign over her head –
and stared at passers-by
who looked up
into her blank eyes
and cared to smile,
greetings unsaid.
the wait was on
for the right (or even wrong)
guy to turn up one day
and pull out the right thread
to free her , unravel her,
open her up , as wanted by her.

thanks a lot Nisha for letting me use your pic.

marks of heritage,
culture and celebration,
I wear them on me
and carry them together
from today, I become
the bond between many,
the bearer of a family,
the love of some one’s life
the form of goddess like.
The floral pattern
that graces my feet
alike the path,
i wish it will be
into his heart and home
making it our abode,
ruled by colors of love
that marked me his
like the legacy
i am sworn to pass on…

This is a hindi poem inspired by the following image :


kyon yun bulaati ho,
har shaam jab baadal ghir aate hain,
kyon yun shor machati ho,
har raat jab baadal baras jaate hain
meri saheli ho tanhai me
kyon fir aise rooth jaati ho
meri hamraaz kaali raaton ki
kyon chup reh kar sataati ho.
rang badlo ya roop lo naya
tum ek khanak se dil churaati ho,
piya kuch na bhi pooche
tum haste haste sab sunaati ho.
unko bhi pyaari ho tum shaayad
har uphaar ke saath aati ho,
aur unke na hone par bhi
reh reh kar unka ehsaas dilati ho ..
