Surrender

My thoughts finally relent! White, the colour of truce they offer, Arms outstretched, Beckoning for acceptance! No longer they will rebel; They seem to convey. No longer will they stray. Chained they would remain, To the mundane drudgery of everyday. A rebel’s thoughts will henceforth, Not sully or smear A canvas, No outpouring of emotions; … Continue reading Surrender

A Song

When thoughts race; Breaking out of boundaries, Crossing barriers of time, Swamped by memories. Words then seek an outlet and A song is born inside the head. When feelings overwhelm; Anger Wells, Craving to set right, All the wrongs one sees committed. Words then seek an outlet and A song is born inside the head. … Continue reading A Song

Books engage me In a lecture of philosophy. Teaching me sustenance, Amidst everyday melancholy. Books stir my soul. Poetic thoughts in pages abound. Paens … Continue reading Books

Fury of Nature

Is it in the nature of nature to be heartless? It’s fury, at times, unleashed on the world causes untold misery, destruction and death. Where does it hide all its anger?

One Day

Curly and dark, Like your beautiful locks, It came and curled around the sun; Just like your locks lay Spread out over my face One day. One day, A chance encounter At the riverfront. You and I, … Continue reading One Day
