birthdays , anniversaries, festivals
some how they lost meaning for me
except birthdays I can say,
specially mine , if it is a memorable day.
But there are some other dates,
I celebrate with all my heart,
I love to cherish and live those hours
when we met , when we loved,
when we fought and later kissed,
when I proposed, when you finally did too,
when we were engaged, and officially “we”
when we celebrated these days,
even if I had to remind you the dates;
These are my favorite celebrations
and they led us here today –
a wedding in three weeks,
a life time of dates to note and make special.

Story of a hug


It was just a hug,
and she could not deny,
maybe it was her doubt,
was there hope in his eyes ?

It was a warm hug,
a beginning for more he hoped
she could not refuse him once
so he looked forward to more.



A short poem for today ‘s OctPoWriMo prompt to rhyme !

A poem like this too ! #OctPoWriMo

a poem a day,
I knew I would stray,
it is not about ease
but some odd muses,
who refuse to be penned
not till you beg them in the end.

And lo behold
another poem unfolds,
poor day eighteen
had to bear this from me
a lousy poem, a bad verse
but hey, I made it rhyme still.


good or bad , I had fun writing this ­čśÇ

thanks to the wonderful prompts @ OctPoWriMo

I feel you close #OctPoWriMo

Why do I then feel you close ?
each time I think of my first lines
why do I see you in each pause?

when I get cut by a rose
did I miss the warning signs ?
Why do I then feel you close ?

the happy smiles and the pose,
was there ever a truth in that time ?
why do I see you in each pause?

In words were your feelings enclosed,
yet I never read them right,
Why do I feel you close ?

for many , it was what you chose,
why then were tears all mine,
why do I see you in each pause?

you taught me life, from ashes you rose,
till your death pushed me into confines
Why do I then feel you close ?
why do I see you in each pause?

I never have a “words unsaid” moment with some one living. Nor do i have any thought left to share with people lost. But there is one guy , whose death did break my heart , whose absence is still felt some nights. Even if for sharing my poems and smiles beyond the distances. This is for some one who left us all on will and that’s something I can never know why.


After this , I went back to read this post which I had written about this special friend and I feel , the poem is not complete without the whole story.

News make no sense #OctPoWriMo

News make no sense today
some stocks crashed,
some one bought 176 crore
worth houses some place;
I read of new diseases
on rise ’cause of smartphone;
it seems people check it
150 times a day –
I guess I checked it
a little more than usual,
anxious and nervous too,
hopeful yet feeling guilty too,
no news of the friend
I wanted to hear from,
no words to shed light
where else can I now go ?
News make no sense today
happiness has decided to be away.


Today’s post is a real surprise. My mood did not permit me to even attempt writing but when I could not hold my emotions , I knew I had to write.

Hope this makes sense to you or some one ..
