Fitment

A small colony; In a relatively smaller town of India. A child, reprimanded by his parents: “Look at your brother”, his father says. “Brilliant guy, 6 pointer in school final exams. He, unlike you, has a bright future. Why can’t you learn something from him”? A shoe; he is expected to fill Appears too big! … Continue reading Fitment

Man has travelled everywhere- From depths of the Pacific, To the vast emptiness of space, His footprint on lunar surface, Even beyond Pluto, his eyes gaze. The tiniest of organism, Cannot stay undetected. Man’s curiosity seeks them out, Under microscope they are then dissected. Tomes of information, Under command of one’s finger. Often high on … Continue reading Assistance

Colours

Of spring and … Continue reading Green Future

My mind then goes into a whirl. Like waves of a turbulent sea, Memories rush in Crashing with fury Hurting, Stinging … Continue reading Repentance

We Walk On

Conversations! Yours and mine. Continues Even to this day. A lifetime of memories, So much to discuss. Every word Spins off a thought. Some more words; Spoken words, Some gestures, Knowing smiles and Comforting touch. Words carry us; Footfalls upon dewy grass. Twigs snap below our feet. Time elapses. Surrounding mist Soft on our shoulders. … Continue reading We Walk On
