Another bright day -
Challenging the spirit of man.
Roused from slumber of sloth,
Overpowering the base desires,
Seemingly naïve yet motivated mind,
Takes on enemy camp unexpectedly.
It is a sight to lo and behold !
Carving a niche for self in the wide world.

hey anwesa,

the words were brilliant! i liked em.

well, i donno all about acrostic dear, but usually the poem should describe the word! i.e an acrostic on anwesa, should describe anwesa. :)

could u try one like that? :)

Its Kafka, albeit the prose form.

Franz Kafka, has been one of my favourite. And you reminded me of him...

Bourgeoisie people!

Needless to say, Loved it absolutely!

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ? 

P.S. : Penned at Candies, Bandra on 11th January 2017 


Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.
