Winter chills

Day 31 - I enjoyed the journey here very much and hope to be part of this for many more years. Loved the daily prompts and writing styles. Other then few days I tried to go with the prompts.

Time for few Goodbyes’
Long grumpy days
And sweltering sun
Parched wallowing earth
Chameleons and squirrels
Resting for a season
Stuffing with ample sustenance
Working on a silence

Fresh new green sprouts
Peaking buds blossom
Emanating intoxicating fragrance
Melodious chirpings drifts
Bringing in first chills
Dew drops sparkles
On velvety shining grass
Heady sensations surface

Rejoice …….
Winter chills are here again.

Love you

Day 30 - Today's Prompt Sensitivity.. I loved the prompt as it is on this auspicious day of our Festival "KarwaChauth" .. women observe a fast (without food and water and after looking at moon in the evening break their fast) for their Husbands for their long Life, Love and  Success.I went with the Prompt "I Love.."

I love the look in your eyes

Blanketing and heartening
Assuring privileged lifetime

I love you in my life
Adoring and encouraging
Making me complete.

Philosophical Loop

Day 29 - OctPoWriMo

Life comes to a full circle
The Beginnings today
Ends tomorrow
Only if tomorrow comes.

Nothing ends
Nothing begins
Rotating lives
Rotating  survives

If tomorrow comes
Tomorrow ends
To evolve into today
Life comes to a full circle.

Diwali celebration at home 

Sweet "Gujiya"

It’s that time of the year again
Dust laden corners
Are dusted and brushed
Empty cans find new entrants
Kitchen emits aromatic fragrance
Mommies prepare delicacies
Crunchy crispy sweets
Fills little tummies

Floors sparkle with mirror like shine
Elegant ‘Rangoli‘ adorns the corners
Scented candle illuminates the space
Marigold and mango leaves unite
Ornamenting the entrances
Tingling Bangles shimmering dresses
Henna beautifies the palm
Elated faces greet each other

It’s that time of the year again
When temples chime with
Tingling bells and
Reverberates sacred hymns
Welcoming the deities
Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha
Marking the Beginning of a
New Year… Blessings!!!

The Beginning

Day 27 OctPoWriMo - 

Poetry Prompt:

What is your happy ending? 

Word Prompts:



Walking towards the horizon
 Quaint sensation succumbs
  Mischievous memories resurfaced
  Curious images form eccentric patterns  
   Filling the rainbow with all colours
     Happy and sad moments
    Merges and evolves
  Sun is about to set
 Smiling in auburn ember
Bridging the End and the Beginning.

Comfort Siesta

#MondayMusings - 26 October 2015


Slumbering under the tree
Tree of grace and life
Life beside the rules
Rules need to be trailed
Trailed the dreams of veracity
Veracity of knowledge
Knowledge to be gained
Gained life’s comfort
Comfort to slumber

Treading all over the place..

Day 26 OctPoWriMo - Today's Prompt "loop poetry" .. I tried this in my write along with prompt sentence "Tiptoeing around the..." also using the Photo :)

OctPoWriMo Picture Prompt

Tiptoeing around the garden
Searching for new grass flowers
Garden covered with fresh puddles
Flowers emitting profound fragrance
Puddles dancing in sunshine
Fragrance finding significance
Sunshine’s with all its valor

Tiptoeing around the kitchen
Sniffing freshly baked bread
Kitchen full of delicious aroma
Bread pouting and inviting
Aroma filling the senses
Inviting new celebrations
Sensing the festivity .

Forever young ‘Teesh’

Day 25 OctPoWriMo - Today's prompt - best childhood toy which brought joy.. pushed me instantly down the memory lane and pulled out my cute little bunny "Teesh" . 

Hidden behind the artificial wall
Familiar ribbon peaked
Most prized possession
Reassuring my lost memories
Flooding my insides
Bridging instantly
Present to past
Sweet remembrances
Returning to soft innocence
Where tattered “Teesh” lay
Nibbled nose n ear
Half grinning with absent mouth
Clutching onto it
Overwhelming sense of existence
Brought a smooth flow of saline
Instantly dissolving all trepidations
Filling with serenity.

Light of sovereignty

Day 24 OctPoWriMo
2015 Gurgaon

Lifted high in spirits
Walked to the eternity
Only to find blinding
Light at the end of the tunnel

Heard sounds of dear ones
Weeping and pleading to stop
That flashing light there
Was calling again and again

Peace and serenity persists there
Somewhere deep had a feeling
Few steps more to be liberated
From the captivity of the realm

Blinding light of faith
Surged inside
Scattering imperturbable liveliness
Satiating the quest

Calmness encased the humanity
Heightened sense of being
Supreme power resides there
Privileged to accomplish

Oceanic Drop

Day 23 OctPoWriMo


On a fine cool autumn morning
Dew drops glistened like pearl
On the velvety leaves
Sparkled with sunbeams
Queen bee fluttering over
To quench it’s thirst
From the globules

Along with the setting sun
Standing on the beach
Soothing oceanic waves
Makes music to the ears
Valiant feet dashes inside
To savour the briny marine
And cherish the moments

Miniscule drops condensed
To form the suspended pregnant cloud
Only to burst open
Scattering on the arena
Merging with the seawater
Trivial elfin bead
Transformed .

Divine Goddess Durga

Day 21 OctPoWriMo

Goddess Durga (image from net)

O’ Mighty Goddess Durga
Singing songs of your grandeur
Let me submerge in your worship
Help me not to wander

You ruled the darkness
Banishing demons of the night
Cleaning the aura
With all your glorious might

O’ Valiant mother divinity
Let us engulf in your affection
Liberate from the clutches of dark
Immerse in your devotion

Light the fire of truth
Burn slackness and callousness
Let me be empty
To be one with oneness

Succumbs to the night

It’s time for trick-o-treat

Image from Net

immense warmth is sensed
under the furry wings
after an exhausting flight
with food in it’s beak
by fondness cuddled the young ones
feeding and nurturing
shielding from the seekers
with prodigious tenderness
soon will teach to spread their wings
to flutter spontaneously shorn of attachment
and conquer the realm!!

Old Bench

Day 19- OctPoWriMo 2015

Image from Net

I was blessed to hear their
Sweet innocent gibberish nothings
They adorned me with
Buckets full of garden earth
I was freshly painted then
Full of life and valour

I was proud to witness their
First acquitted zealous kiss
They promised a lifetime forever
With love and passion
I was young then
Full of energy and vibrant

I was emotional to see them
Exchanging vows under the tree
Assurances for togetherness
Building faith and affection
I was aging gracefully
With fearlessness

I was thrilled to know their blossoms
Twins were they
Exact replica of their mother
Jovial as their blood relation
I was getting old
Yet I was as alive as I could be

I was elated to feel them growing
Soon standing tall
As handsome as they could be
Now showing more traces of their father
I was happy
To see my family growing

I was greeting the old couple after long
They seem drained of life
Their kids with family of their own
Had discarded them out of their lives
I am one with them old,
Exhausted and secluded.

Day 18 OctPoWriMo 2015

mage from net

Slimy slithery creature
Slithered in the backyard
Under the stars
It ruled the garden
Bringing in creeps
Every time lighting struck
Heart pounded at a galloping speed

At the first stroke of sunlight
Beaming fresh on the flowers
With trembling feet
Moved myself to open the backdoor
There still lay the long creature
Only it was not so terrifying  
There lay a harmless rope instead.

Pensive Dance

Day 17 OctPoWriMo 2015- Cascade(a/b/c,d/e/A,f/g/B,h/i/C)

Her flowing gown swept the floor
She glistened in sweet sweat
With warm heavy exultant breath

She tapped her elated feet
And swirled and swirled around
Her flowing gown swept the floor

Without cessation danced to the tune
Melting with the melody, Overjoyed
She glistened in sweet sweat

Pirouetted in profound meditative state
Her face radiated pure bliss
With warm heavy exultant breath

Crushed autumn dreams
Flowers bloom in her shadow
Slumber peacefully
Blue pink and orange hues
Blanketed the fragile numb frame
Livid silence hurts

Day 15 OctPoWriMo

Image From net

Flying high in dreams
Pursuing for the stars and moon
Taking chances
Aspiring to touch the sky
Following visions
Balancing the arena of
Wisdom and grace
Dancing in the woods
Chirping sweet melodies
Listening to the music
Floating from ‘His’ flute
Spreading serenity
Under the ‘Banyan’ tree
In complete peace
Surrender in silence
Be one with one
Dissolve into oblivion
Dissipate into ether to
Attain salvation.

Between the memory Bridge

Day 14 OctPoWriMo

Photo by Larisa Koshkina at

I stood on the bridge .. Recollecting!
Revisiting down the memory lane
Adjudicating  !

How time flies
Some faces become memories
Some memories died out

How thoughts change
Once which was very dear
Becomes archaic now

How individuals transform
At times.. Closest
Now nowhere in close vicinity

I stood on the bridge.. remembering
The gone old good and bad times
Things left behind for good

Living in present
Relishing each and every moment

Exposed to Life

Day 13 OctPoWriMo

Soulful Brazilian Morning  2012

Watching myself in mirror
Watching inside me
Exposed to brutality
Exposed to the truth
Truth is inevitable
Truth is certain
Certain memories enriched
Certain pain healed
Healed myself
Healed the soul
Soul is pure
Soul is real
Real fragrance floated
Real happiness felt
Felt the sensations
Felt the love
Love is bliss
Love is life
Life is to be explored
Life is to enjoy
Enjoy freedom
Enjoy purity
Purity resides inside
Purity signifies peace
Peace is esoteric
Peace conquers
Conquers meaning of existence
Conquers demons of night
Night is scary
Night is sacred
Sacred paths
Sacred messages
Messages are conveyed
Messages are to observe
Observe the rules
Observe the surrounding
Surrounding is serene
Surrounding surrounds music
Music heals
Music spreads tranquility
Tranquility of dreams
Tranquility of thoughts
Thoughts travel afar
Thoughts are ephemeral
Ephemeral is existence
Ephemeral is life
Life is a story
Life is expressed

Day 12 OctPoWriMo 2015 

Along the riverside
Bells reverberated
Compiling the memories
Desperate to relive
Eliminating the darkness
Feeling light

Gratifying the soul from the
Helms of time
Inspiring the fauna
Juggling between heaven and hell

Kaleidoscope of remembrances
Languished with time
Merging within
Neutralizing the whirlpool
Oozing out the
Painful reminiscences

Quenching its thirst
Recalling vivacity
Spreading cheerfulness
Tempting the passion  
Vivid celebrations
Whispered soothingly
Xeroxing the exuberance
Yearning to compete with blending
Zephyr, enchanting the persona.

What is there?

Day 10 - OctPoWriMo


What is there in yesterday, today or tomorrow

Water the soul’s garden with love
Mind will produce flowers from within
Nurture your thoughts with compassion
Universe will spread its fragrance

What is there in pain sufferings and crying

Sprinkle lesions with smile
Wounds will ooze out the venom
 Be the flowing lake with a spoonful of salt
Rather be a stagnant glass of water

What is there in loosing destroying or contempt

Spread the balm of affection
Happiness will reverberate
Scatter your positive warmth

All will be calm and pure.

Day 9 - OctPoWriMo

Image From OctPoWriMo 2015

Razing fire is somewhere deep within
Cavernous burning reside, inside
Taken oath to terminate poison
Ogling from the core underneath

Persistent fire that lights inside
Impulses to reach the supreme
Ambitions for the highest
Promises, thyself.

Raging passions hurled
The complexity of an ocean
Tectonic plates waddled
To influence reminiscence .

HauzKhas 2015

Meandering curvy roads
Meet at life’s crossroads
Brain triggers memories
Some good some bad
Pending decisions
Carried as bundled carcass
Stinking and Oozing vermillion

Through the uplifted fog
Views the clearer picture
With soothing balm
Encasing the searing pain
Envelops the entire persona
Uplifting the whole forte.

Love is in the air!

Day 5
Leisure Valley 2015

Twisting and twirling
On crumpled bed of greens
Weaving intricate patterns
On the vast skies above
With spools of fine emotion
Filling them with fragrance
Borrowed from the flora
Enhanced with chirping's
Of birds and bees .

Feeling loved!!

Love Story

Day 2 - OctPoWriMo
A Conversation between Fever and a Patient.

“It seems as if you are falling in love with me once again”

“What rubbish! How can you be so sure”

“The look of your smouldering eyes
Burning with jumbled emotions
Heart galloping on vast emerald arenas
Through your moans with every touch “

“I despise you. Leave me alone”

“Oh! Please embrace me
Want to stay with you forever
Will envelop you with myself
And stay until end.”

“I know you will take me to my end
That is why I will take my medicine
And free myself from your
Dreadful clutches”
