Winter to me

By on January 30, 2017

  Winter is no more about bright red and blue sweater Getting up in the morning and refusing to bathe Screaming with laughter as the skin was hit with water Or shivering under towels to watch the vapour fade It’s no more about asking him two more minutes to sleep Or pretending not to be […]

Rumination Of Tiny Lights

By on October 1, 2016

“Don’t move” we whispered, while pretending to sleep beneath a single white sheet. Those were the days when you closed shut your eyes hard, so hard that it would hurt. You did so because you believed that the harder you closed them, no one could see you. “I don’t find anyone, guess they are not […]

Heaven Is Real

By on May 7, 2016

The wind sweeping from Himalayas had the strength to break bones. We were shivering, with our lungs hurting with each breath that we took. But somehow the giggling didn’t stop. From  our window what we could see were just enormous mountains. Few covered with sky scraping pine trees and distantly stood giants covered in white. […]

Foster’s Child

By on October 10, 2015

Running through the lanes, coming back from school She insisted her mother, to dress her in her favourite wool A shattering noise and houses fell to dust Few even sank down in Earth’s crust   Her scream was muffled by the sound of guns She rushed to the ruins, took her fastest run She was […]

By on September 25, 2015

In the woods, once so green Beneath the light, once shade would breathe The young leaves now old and dry Cover the place like stars fallen from the sky   The place had an incense of it’s own when warm wind blew over each trunk and stone Nature has it’s own way to teach There […]

Two Curious Eyes

By on August 9, 2015

Two curious eyes fixed on the way The month of June, school’s first days. Parents crowd to pick their child, This little one just stood with a smile.   With a jumbo bag, as big as she And two ponytails like grape wine curling so free. Her umbrella like a kitten’s face And said, “My […]

 “Let me tell you a story” he said, When I was lying next to his bed. He loved to write poems and stories and had them engraved in memories   The story was “Forget me not” written on a father and his daughter who grew up in a little house and had just each other […]

The Story Teller

By on May 7, 2015

The light filled up the room The one where the walls are still the same It looked gleaming every summer noon and we loved to play our games. Tired one afternoon, when no one was  there but me, I sat on the bed and tried to look around and see The bed, the walls, the […]

The Vacant Chair

By on April 19, 2015

  I see to my left, I stare at the vacant chair I glance at the books and the pages which you cared The medicine shelves, the articles you would read I run my fingers over the covers, with your handwriting still engraved. Yes, I know we have grown, Yes, I know the walls have […]

Forever and Always

By on April 17, 2015

  “He was such a great man “ said a lady & bursted into tears. It was a gloomy day though the sun was shining bright, but I can’t really recall her face as I was already dizzy & my mind was not able to absorb anything more. It was his day, it was 18th […]
