Finally it all dawns clear

The sadness,fears, the oh so little lies

Honest in their own way

For in them  live words, slicing fatefully

Through vexed lives ,vacant spaces

You I, now inhabit

Hiding, lest be found from

The truths staring ominous

Making believe a world that no longer exists

For once again, you are alone

Ah ! So alone

Amid the freezing waters of leftover life

It will be a long trek to get over

That mountain of wishes so high

A figment of imagination lost in dreams

Cold reality is what one needs.

Jagged Edges



This poem “Jagged Edges ” is from my poetry book OF SILHOUETTE WORDS & MOONFLOWERS. It is a part of the Paperboat Trails Theme. Hope you enjoy the poem.







Ah ! Fear

the one which freezes the blood cold

senses numb and straight jacketed

Paused and denied

the freedom of choice

makes the blood boil in retrospect

the other side

gives you wings to fly

resolve to break barriers

conquer the world, yourself

for at times, you have nothing to lose









I write those little lines

That rise up to the sky

Fall into the depths of despair

Wait for the grey skies

Give way to clear horizons

Word by word , step by step

A continuum of thoughts

And me walk on fluted rays

My hope for the days to come

Is somewhere between those lines








The tree is silent, the leaves wave in the slight breeze

Sunlight filters softly through, tip toe on floating rays

It is the Midday of Time

Thoughtful, it slows down

As a gift to be cherished

Before it runs away again

Moments of sadness at the inevitability

Of it all,  trigger longings for more.

For all the swagger and bombast of youth

Riches and mincing words

It is nothing. For in the end,

One is a memory, a song once sung.

A tune that fades away into the echoes

Of the valleys of life.

Our Stars




In the circles of infinity, Somewhere

Lie the ever looping turns of our stars

Where the crisscrossed paths of us

Go on and on, in space never ending

Thoughts that travels galaxies

Of words unspoken unwritten

The eyes behold what the dazzle

Of the sunsets many, hides

The truths of you and me.

Idea 5-A Daydreamers Tale



The  mighty ship sailed on waters deep

Way upon the horizons of the seas

The idea stood on the deck

Festooned in all finery

Of being the captain of this ship

Out there in oceans vast, just a speck

Ho ho and a bottle of rum !

The idea was on the run

Far away from the daily haggle and babble

Of  boring land life

It was where the dolphins swam

In feisty, wind lashed waves

The sharks and the kraken lurked

On billowy underwater graves

Atlantis was within reach

How? Do not ask, will not speak

Coves of treasures beckoned

Songs of mermaids, the idea heard

dazed and lovelorn

in silent misty nights, I reckon.


It drifted to shore one day

All haggard and grey

But a glint in the eyes

Gave the idea away

It sat down besides the fireplace

Regaled all with stories of lands

wicked and rich

adventures, fast and swift

The words drifted down to the journal

happy to find a place to finally sleep

As for the idea, I find it hard to confined keep!!




Another tale!!   🙂

The night crawls

in the tick-tock of the clock

on all fours, stretched out thin

a stranglehold of Time

It forces the breath out dry

a gathering of shadows that close in

wanting to know

where you have been

for nothing escapes the many eyes of the night

A dream ?
