everlasting

Added a few more lines to this post. Brumal tales woven through the fringe of her eyelashes, her eyes curled in soft crinkles. Her gaze, habitually aloof, drifted outside the thatched cottage. ” How did you come to know that drover?” he asked sternly. Suddenly her luscious eyes grew paler. Her glassy face mirrored theContinue reading “everlasting”

vista

Incandescent peaks of halcyon hills seize your gaze in the evening when weary sun grazes those hilltops and sky simmers with crimson, vermilion, azure and milky white lights. Slowly a fiery red flush creeps over the valley and spills around the horizons sprinkling the sneaky woods with a soothing blush. Leisurely the dimming sky gathersContinue reading “vista”

beyond the realm of affordablity

I have loved you in the itchy moments of bizarre possibilities at the same time coming to terms with the fact that I will never chance to hear “Now I pronounce you man and wife,”. Yet, I heard the tapping of your tentative steps shambling up to me in my bittersweet longing for shared bliss.Continue reading “beyond the realm of affordablity”

when they crashed into each other

Clearly, he didn’t know anyone here from Adams. When his new po-faced neighbour Mr Dixit raved about the girl next door, his heart turnedContinue reading “gentleman”

tonight my projection

The ghost of accumulated dreams is finally laid _ I hedge my bets From tracles of suitors Who peer at the impish roses Adorning my raven hair Soaked with scented lores Of secret nights _ When I pass by the mirror Torrents of my silent odeillade embodying my passion are laid to waste as you’reContinue reading “tonight my projection”

a small token of gratitude

I yawned and leisurely picked up the newspaper and flicked a cursory glance. Yippee! India won! But..unfortunately I didn’t know much about cricket…Well, I wasn’t an artist, nonetheless, I decided to draw something. Then I grabbed a pen and wrote a letter of appreciation to the Indian Team. Dear Indian Cricket Team, I want toContinue reading “a small token of gratitude”
