    As I open an old album I find my Mumma's picture
    Looking out of the window with a curious gaze
    Her wavy hair tied in a long plait
    Few curly strands trying hard to cover the face but in vain
    A saree folded neatly on the shoulder
    With beautiful floral embroidery on the border
    I try if I can tell the colour
    but it's a black and white picture taken many years prior
    It could be blue or could be lavender
    as those were Ma's favorite colors
    Kohl lined eyes and faint smile on the lip
    Sun kissed cheeks with a mole on the chin
    Old album takes you through a memory lane
    Many questions arise but no one there to explain
    It's like a history with everyones different version
    Once in a while I like to open this treasure
    I feel as if Ma is holding my hand
    and I am a child all over again

    Goodbye

    Goodbye to all the teenage memories said my torn jeans as I threw it in the garbage

    Goodbye

    Best goodbyes are ones when you know you still can wave back from one last window

    I lost my beagle to cancer before 5 years. Next six months were hard for me. Somewhere I kept blaming myself. My family assured me that I did my best and slowly I came out of my guilt.

    My beagle Zoey

    Heart twitches and eye waters
    Seven happy years flip by
    Each time I think.of you my pooch
    Jumping and playing around
    I owe you an apology for letting you go too soon


    Oh! My dear Human Mom

    Apologize no more
    Know that you cared so much
    But I had to go as my time was up
    Please forgive me as I left before noon
    But rest assured I would be back real soon

    Ocean

    ©aaureate

    I jumped into the ocean
    As the setting sun
    Plunged in saline water
    I searched all around and
    Found a part of it
    In an oyster
    A pearl of an orange hue
    Now I carry a piece of sun around my neck
    And a bit of ocean in my heart

    Flight of Fancy

    ©aaureate


    In a world without imagination
    Azure sky would never sulk grey and
    no one would slide on sunray
    Zephyr would never be naughty and
    stars would not be guiding light to many
    Waxing and waning of moon can never be a love story and
    vermillion sun set would never bring back so many memories
    Spring would hide somewhere behind waiting for someone to find and
    everyone would hate autumn for bringing in the chilly winter night
    Rains would never invite aphrodite and
    winter would be dull without santa on its slide
    Morning dew would dry on the leaf without anyone to admire and
    bees and Butterflies would be shy to kiss the flowers under an open sky

    In a world without imagination
    Everything would be so drab
    No metaphor and no simile
    No personification and no hyperbole
    No flight of fancy
    No colors on my canvas
    No characters in my poetry

    The Book Room
    A window to a world
    Waiting to be explored

    Are there any answers?

    ©aaureate


    Is it only me who feels like this or others too?
    Do you want to be everywhere,
    On earth and moon at the same time?

    While chilling on the beach watching the sky and the sea meet,
    Do you miss a vermillion sunset behind the mountain ridge?

    Strolling lazily on the dusty country roads,
    Do you yearn for blazing city lights?

    While dancing under the aureole moonlight
    Do you wish a moonless night once in a while?

    Utterly dispising crawling critters
    Do you ever want to cuddle radiant fire flies?

    While wanting someone tied to you for a lifetime
    Do you also want an unshackled life?

    I am desperate for answers to all my questions
    But it's quite possible that I am fine even without any.

    Saudade

    ©aaureate

    As the winter rains hit my window pane in
    pitter patter
    Unexpectedly, unprecedentedly, unseasonably
    I think of you my love
    That's how you had entered my heart
    Pitter pattered
    And how it had skipped a beat for a while
    Only to beat faster the next

    And how inseparable you became in my life
    Hand in hand our story ran together but only for a while
    Life tore our pages, throwing in different sides
    Like a co-traveller separates the route after a while
    You pittter pattered out of my life with a bang on my door
    That day too my heart skipped a beat my love
    And never beat in the same rhythm ever again

    Now, everytime it rains
    Unexpectedly unprecedentedly, unseasonably
    With a pitter patter
    My heart sweeps away in saudade
    I drench in emotions
    Shiver for some warmth
    But you don't come
    I lie curled up in my bed

    I long for you
    My love
    Near that window
    Waiting for pitter patter......

    Tired winding roads want to rest but
    'How and where?', they ask trees around
    Trees too are tired of cold winds
    'How and where?', they ask birds around
    Birds are tired to migrate varied places
    They reach God and plead , HE smiled,
    'I too am tired of all whines'
