Making sand castles
Playing aimlessly on the beach
His eyes twinkled
At the sight of an old Zaftig .
His memory shifted to his house
At countryside
Where a similar woman
Smiles and adores him
Bakes delicious cookies
And surprise him with candy
On her lap he sleeps while reading
She gently cleans his drools
Her bosom fills with pride
He is a Xerox of his grandfather.
His castle tumbled down
With the rising wave
Old Zaftig was standing near
Smiling gently she offered him a candy.


*Zaftig – (of a woman) having a full, rounded figure; plump

That fateful night
Heaven poured
Pitter .. Patter
Pitter..  Patter
Wrecking the ship

That insignificant Yawl
Sailing gallantly
On the gushing sea
Saving ..  Saving
Saving.. Saving
Many sinking lives

With hands on her hips
Wicked smile on her lips
She thrashed his head
On the side of a bed
She wanted a car and diamonds
To let things normal he bought
All even when tight handed
She faked some illness
Which no doctor could
Find in her abusiveness
She reeks of venom
Strikes him hard
Sounds as a demon
With blazing eyes
She looks upon him
Seems as if will eat him fried
Sacred vows hold no importance
As she wants only her will to be spoken.


* Xanthippe – wife of Socrates. Her allegedly bad tempered behaviour towards her husband made her proverbial as a shrew.
- a shrewish, scolding, or ill-tempered woman or wife.

Withering Summer

With prickly sweat
Trickling down the spine
Finding respite
Under the 'Neem tree'*
Quenching thirst
With sweet cool lime
And syrupy watermelon
Oozing nectar from
Green coconut
Tastes like Heaven
Juicy mangoes tease
Oh! I want some more please 

Scorching sun
Reverberates its heat
Let the ‘Matka Kulfi’** melt
And beat the sizzling heat
Sun Flowers stand valiantly
Shinning in the sun
Summers are here
Now waiting for the Rain.

*'Neem Tree' Azadirachta indica, also known as Neem, Nimtree, and Indian Lilac is a tree in the mahogany family Meliaceae.

** 'Matka Kulfi' it is a kind of creamy milky Ice cream set in earthen pots. It's a delight in summers as fresh earthen pot's aroma mixes with delicious cool Ice Cream.

Virtual world

Living in a fake domain
Like a ball of dishevelled yarn
Connected.. Yet at a distance
‘Ends’ does not meet
Flurry of thoughts disperse
Mingles around
Yet nowhere to be found
Distanced from the loved
Living in simulated realm
Cribbing for something
Not knowing ‘what’
Fake is all around
Truth is lost
Entwined in the web
Of lies
Struggling to be part
Of forged personalities
Forgetting ourselves…!

Under the umbrella

Under the umbrella
Walking hand in hand
Away from all qualms
Love birds craved to fly
To reach the rainbow in the sky
Asking for its colours
To fill their life
Under the umbrella
Looking intently in the eyes
Smiling at each other
Cherishing the rain
Melting in the Petrichor
Requesting for its freshness
Conquering their existence
Under the umbrella
They live happily
Walking hand in hand
Looking keenly
Revering the gift of love
Merging with the beats
Relishing togetherness !!

Always felt a strong self
Passing off never alarmed
Splattering blood kept calm.

Seeing own bloods demise
Brings quiver inside.

The difference arise
From blood to blood
Though all in red .

To merge the variance
And be one with everything.

On a cool spring morning
Working on weeds
Stung by bees
Oh what fun I had
The sweet pain and smile

With swollen fingers
I worked again
From ear to ear
Feeling again so much alive

Cascading river
Thoughts drift apart
Ripples form in the heart

Tiny pair of feet trod around
Bringing smiles everywhere
In some alien language
Explain all things
Jumping and galloping
From this side to other
Suddenly bumps down
Sending quiver all inside

Now running again with Valour
Teaching Lessons of Life..!!

Patterns in vision

Scribbling on a notepad
Scribbling nonsensical patterns
Patterns reflecting life
Patterns radiating existence
Existence of a soul
Existence of a being
Being merry always
Being truly sensitive
Sensitive to thoughts
Sensitive towards humanity
Humanity survives
Humanity makes us alive
Alive from the core of the heart
Alive at every step
Step up the ladder
Step down to kindness
Kindness is needed
Kindness heals
Heals the wound
Heals the soul
Soul is pure
Soul is truth
Truth is a winner
Truth rules
Rules to be obeyed
Rules not to be broken
Broken promises
Broken words
Words have meaning
Words are silent
Silent images
Silent night
Night sings along
Night brings stars
Stars of my eye
Stars in the sky
Sky is blue
Sky is vast
Vast landscapes
Vast thoughts 
Thoughts sometimes hurt
Thoughts bring memories
Memories are locked
Memories are stored
Stored happiness
Stored vision
Vision of new openings
Vision of life

Musings of Seasons

All around the flowers bloom
In all colours and hues
Chirping envelops the aura
Nests are seen everywhere

With the glowing hot sun
Summer sets in
With lovely mangoes and lychees
Soothing hats, umbrellas and glares

With humid winds
Greens are all bare
Strewn across the earth
Fallen time waits to shoot

White is the color all over
With mufflers and heaters
Sun shines weakly
Spreading warmth all around

Season comes and goes
Filling our lives
With rainbows of memories
To cherish forever.

One Big Family

Sprouted from a single seed
Many forms take shape
Flourish here and there
Connected with invisible thread
Of Love Faith and Blood
Flutters away from nest
Craves to return by night
One Big Family
Unites once again…!!

On the top of that ‘Gulmohar’* tree
She rested her tired wings
At dusk when all returns
She found a cosy spot

At the first hint of dawn
She chirped merrily
Bringing life all around
Spreading happiness

Her melodious song
Fills all with tranquillity
Oh! How I wish to sing like her
My pretty Nightingale

Her music stirs something
Deep inside my soul
To be close to nature
And reconcile is what I wish!!

'Gulmohar' in Hindi commonly known as Royal Poinciana or Delonix regia is a Beautiful Tree with Red Flowers.

Lavender blooms

Longing aches deep inside
Arousing throbbing sensations
Vacuums the feelings
Enduring pain persists
Nurturing the abyss
Drumming intimate
Echo of silence

Bulging emotions
Live to breathe
Omitting the intense niggle

LAVENDER BLOOMS procure memories!!

Krishn, Buddh, Shiv

Pencil Art 2016

On the bank of River Yamuna
His flute plays mesmerizing notes
Lost in the music dances all

Under the banyan tree
He preaches peace
Serenity spreads athwart

In the snow covered land
He dances to his heart
Heads bow with fulfilment

The soother, The Preacher, The destroyer
Completes the cycles of life
Dispersing calmness

His tiny
Innocent teary eyes
Suddenly found a reason to smile
There on the other side of the road
Stood a magnificent musical Jukebox
A penny is deeply secured in his back pocket


His dream will come true
He will be able to peep inside
That musical jukebox
Which brings smile
To every eye

Into the woods

A-Z Challenge 2016

Walking down the by lanes
Of lost times
Footsteps found the path
Into the woods
Sitting under an old tree
Thoughts unfold
Spreading their wings
Showing colours
Bringing smiles from within

Life is Beautiful

Humming Bird

From a flower to flower
She hums her way
Sucking nectar
Spreading smiles
Fragrant buds welcome
The musical notes drifts
Her fluttering wings hum
Harnessing completely
Happily rejoicing
The Heaven and The Earth

Gun shot

Lively chirpy young couple
Sat hand in hand
Over a cup of steaming hot coffee
Lost in their dreamy love world
Planning for their future
Finding names together
Designing the room with a cot
Thinking about the colour scheme
Will it be “Blue” or “Pink”
Or should they settle for “Yellow”?

Two masked man jumped from the bike
With hateful blood shot eyes
Fired gun shots blindly

With piercing pain
And a direct hole in her heart
She bid farewell
Greying his world altogether
For no fault of theirs
Their dreams shattered in front of his eyes
What will he do with so
Much hatred in world
When will people learn
To Live and to Let live?

With shaking hands she served dinner
He walked with a tremble even with the stick
Together they sat on that tattered bench
Under that ageing mango tree
Looking sadly at the strewn fruit
Gone are the days when they were
Relished with enthusiasm by the kids
Now only few squirrels or birds come to pick
Their loving brave son
Fought courageously at the border
Making them proud
Only to return packed in a wooden box
An ever smiling picture of him framed
And preserved forever in their hearts .

Monsters in Home

Walking down the memory lane
Her soul wept once again
In the times of dolls and puppies and fairies
Her soul was tattered with bruises
Blinding darkness engulfed her
Monsters of night frayed her completely
Wounded humanity exuded agony
Her innocence got ebonized forever.

Divine Miracle

My Grandson

From the seed of love
Life takes form
From the fragrance of smile
Happiness blooms

Cocooned inside the secured warmth
Tiny smile spread across
Miniscule limbs stretch and yawns
Bringing joys to the world

From the passage of time
I walk into the by lanes of memories
Few dark spots hide behind the walls
Few damp areas are still sultry
I saw a smile hiding behind a tree
I walked past by knowingly
It trailed away
Had to rush to embrace
Smile is the only companion I have
Now when I am all lost and alone.

Excruciating pain runs
Down the spine
Screeching in agony
Saline covers the face
Prickly needles burn inside
Scratchy wounds exudes fluid
Numbing tongue oozes venom

Haunting screams reverberates
In the empty halls
Yearning to flutter away
Aches in hollow frame
Waiting and waiting and waiting
To be liberated from the chains.

Breathe In Life

Spring 2016

Deeply inhaling the fresh aromatic air
Transformed energy surges
Filling with fragrance
Dew drops sparkled
On sun kissed roses

Happily pampering the tiny sparrows
Exuberant at their show
Quest to complete their nest
Gratified heart compels
To feed them more.
