    A gallery scene.. A room with dim lights.. 
    Anything can happen, in the quiet of the night... ! 

    *p.s.  I couldn't imagine any #heart that's without any cracks or patches other than that of a child who is yet to begin this wild wild journey called life. 

    Thanks a million @writersnetwork for the kind repost. It truly means a lot.. �� #wnluv

    Thank you @miraquill , Thank you for choosing this as the POD.

    Live Life Alive!

    It is mid of the night
    only silence in sight
    The gallery walls witness
    an unusual exchange. 

    Mamma heart rose awoke
    as the little heart mildly spoke
    "Why do you have so many cracks? 
    What does your strength lack?"

    Stroking tenderly for a while
    Cracks curving into smiles 
    Said Mamma heart "Son, 'tis no secret
    The scars surely are no weakness. 

    The patch here that's deep green
    Is my first heartbreak at eighteen
    Your father's love made me bear 
    and bloom some flowers of care

    On the right this deep cut's from 
    the past unrealised dream 
    It was sewn with a strong thread, 
    first time when you were held. 

    Blackened voids, there are four
    I haven't been able to sew
    Deaths of people close to heart 
    ache forever when they depart

    Golden shiny mended fissures
    If you count them I have hundreds! 
    Life's wilderness hurts aplenty
    If you don't venture, you feel empty

    Ahead of you, the ride is bumpy
    Let this truth not make you grumpy
    Take the plunges deep and daring
    That will keep the blood pumping. 

    The blows may feel harsh at times
    wishing for end, searching exit signs. 
    After each fall when you get up
    Wiser you are, taking the next step."

    The next morn, the gallery opened. 
    Stopping midway, Curator stood frozen
    Mamma heart hung there alone 
    Blood dripping from a new crack drawn!

    It's hard to find
    a place so rare
    It's modern world's 'nowhere'!

    An Arcadia
    Where footprints are real,
    not carbon or digital!

    No worldwide web
    No internet
    There people's hearts connect

    When a question gets stifled and smothered
    by the answer,
    there will be only more questions
    marching up your way..

    Arrival of December somehow makes the heart feel younger.. So did the poem that I scribbled some days ago.. I wasn't going to post it.. But today's prompt is nudging me to post it anyway, saying it's ok to giggle and bounce and spread some cheer.  

    �� Winter Cheer ��
    �� ---------- ��

    December's here, filled with cheer
    The end of the year is oh so near!
    Can't you hear the jingle bells dear?
    It's no time to shed anymore tear

    December's here, move up the gear, 
    Let's steer away from gloom and fear
    Cleanse the heart pure, with vision clear
    Let's make happier the forthcoming year

    It's mid-december, cold cold weather
    A time to savour the Festive fervor, 
    Silver spilled all over by the Master Painter
    Spring in the green room,  readying colourful attire

    Dear reader, listen to your hearts desire
    May your prayers be answered, troubles disappear
    Go a step further, world needs a wonder
    Spread around laughter, the more the merrier. 


    Thank you @writersnetwork for the kind repost ������

    Insignificant dust, the human,
    with looming darkness of an ego
    claimed the ownership of the universe
    only to perish with 'her' single nod

    Ever wondered why since ages people have been looking for elixir of youth.?

    Just a number?

    Age is just a number you say? 
    Tell it to the receding hair
    that's rapidly changing color 
    and now can be counted on fingers

    Age is just a number you say? 
    Tell it to the gathering wrinkles 
    which once were soft and supple
    now wilting on the shrinking muscles

    Age is just a number you say? 
    Tell it to the slowing wobbly gait
    needing a stick to share the weight
    Or two extra hands to keep you straight

    Age is just a number you say? 
    Tell it to the ever weakening senses, 
    the hours of the nights spent sleepless
    the tremble, the tremors, the uncalled penance

    Age is just a number you say? 
    Tell it to your ignorant future self
    that one day will sit alone wishing longingly
    for those wasted good ole merry days.

    Grandma and her Kitchen

    Have you ever known
    what richness l o o k s  like?
    Half empty jars of the best quality spices
    neatly stacked in the spotless
    kitchen shelves. 

    Have you ever known
    what passion t a s t e s like? 
    It's the deep orange heavenly drop from
    the home grown unadulterated vegetable curry 
    that nourishes both body and soul. 

    Have you ever known
    what  excellence s m e l l s like? 
    The dish with impeccable balance of flavours
    and textures finished with aromatic seasoning 
    that even a fleeting thought or mention
    can make your mouth water. 

    Have you ever known
    what unconditional love f e e l s like? 
    A snuggly embrace of the aroma from
    the bottomless mud pot that invites you 
    no matter the distance, any time of any day. 

    Have you ever known
    what a michelin star review s o u n d s like? 
    The praises for a humble mango Achar
    that trumped the taste of the main course
    at the wedding banquet; that still gets a finger licking  mention at the Silver Jubilee celebration. 

    Have you ever known
    who the w o r l d 's b e s t m a s t e r c h e f is, 
    was and will always be? 
    Undoubtedly it's my grandma. 
    And the best thing of all is... 
    she knew, she was the best. 

    Have you ever known
    why I am richer than a millionaire? 
    I have the blessings of 
    those flavourful hands 
    and when I enter my kitchen, 
    her aroma still lingers around. 

    "Yes Mai, when the flames
    of my oven comes on,
    my kitchen nods along with me,
    as I whisper 'y o u a r e a l i v e'. "

    It's not really an #argument ...! Just some lingering thoughts that met my pen and paper.

    'Time and tide wait for none'
    isn't it a saying of the wise?
    Why then time stops still when
    I look into those sapphire eyes?

    'Time flies by like the shooting star',
    pouts the little girl
    at the town fair as she hops out
    of the Carousel
    Her mother's eyes keep oscillating
    to the clock tower
    She is keyed up why the hands are
    moving much slower

    Time is sipped in customized glasses
    by every terrestrial soul
    Its speedometer runs wayward
    It's attuned to your smile and scowl
    Time spent laughing, with your loved ones,
    is shrunken by the dial
    Time's ruthless torture, knows the
    man in the six by eight cell

    Time is a tireless ruler,
    Time, a masterly healer,
    Time wipes the flowing tears;
    Time, a dying man's prayer,
    Time destroys, begets havoc,
    tumbles the empires down
    Time crumbles the sturdiest forts,
    transforms a mere stone divine.

    Time has seen - the dawn of faith,
    earth shrink to the size of a grain
    No one dares to capture it's girth
    None have witnessed it's birth.
    I watch it slip through my fingers,
    my fist fails to arrest
    Caught in Time's colossal web,
    I am just a miniscule spec.

    Shrivelling dreams

    The viridescent dreams 
    are shrivelling apace
    as the avarice bipeds 
    plunder and pillage
    their emerald manse 

    Pangaea pleads
    for sylvan grace
    that plays hide and seek
    with the burgeoning trend
    of regressive race.

    City Of Dreams

    City of broken dreams
    hobbling about in crutches
    Eyes on 2D dwellings
    trapped in fate's clutches

    Streets abuzz with whims
    Sell needs and wishes enmeshed
    Drains clogged with sins
    reek of shrieks of sold flesh

    Shiny metal contraptions
    ferry insatiable tantrums
    Tiny palms gather ration
    as metal clinks play the rhythm

    Chaos always in order
    Disruption dances in synchrony
    Pause has gone awol
    Everything moves with money

    It's a city of dreams
    Where nightmares are sown
    Amidst the dwindling space
    Hopes keep finding new dawn

    Something light for today ��


    (Well, not an autobiography, a little snippet of the biography of my #pen ��)

    My Pen

    Is tall
    Like the dainty model
    wearing silver gown, stylishly
    walking on the white paper ramp. 

    Is sleepy, most of the time,
    dozing in a cozy corner of my 
    wooden drawer, like the naughty kitten
    sneaking off to snuggle by the hearthstone. 

    Is clingy, 
    Doesn't leave my fingers;
    When my mind cracks open
    with a burst of emotions, its ink
    flows as if from the broken tap of my kitchen. 

    Is clever, 
    My mind's disciplined twin! 
    It surprises me often, gets my
    thoughts sorted in the most organized manner.

    Caught up in the rat race of reaching nowhere
    We pile up possessions, leave the hearts vacant
    Ensnared by the gloss of glitter and glamour
    We polish our skin and let the soul decay

    Give what you Receive


    Nature's gifts bountiful 
    spread far and wide
    all at mankind's disposal. 

    A solitary soul with heart grateful
    gazing at the sight so beautiful
    wished to do something in return
    for such a magnificent gesture
    of the nurturing nature. 

    A warm embrace 
    of the balmy breeze;
    With a voice most kind
    he gently whispered.. 

    'Nourishing nature's gifts 
    enjoy you must.. 
    Remember to not forget
    to hand them down 
    in perfect condition
    to the future generation. 
    Remember to give 
    what you freely receive".

    Happy Song

    I want to write a happy song

    Song with rainbow colours

    Colours with tints of joy

    Joy that spreads all around

    Around all the dark corners

    Corners even of your hearts. 

    Hearts with shades of greys

    Greys that weigh you down

    Down the alleyways of gloom

    Gloom shall be painted rainbow

    Rainbow of rhythm and melody

    Melody sung by you and I.

    Smiling through the wreckage


    Brilliance of the sun shines in her eyes
    Eyes that mirror her precious heart
    Heart, scattered with leaves of the past
    Past seasons endured the treacherous storms

    Storms left her ship in mangled wreckage
    Wreckage that she did solely Salvage
    Salvaged her home from crumbling ruins
    Ruins transfigured into indestructible walls

    Walls of her heart though are full of cracks
    Cracks, she fills with her golden smiles
    Smiles that she beams around her world
    World rejuvenated in her sheer brilliance.

    You are there.

    Your love for me
    doesn't rhyme
    Nor does it strew
    rose petals in my path. 
    It doesn't whisper 
    'I love you's in my ears, 
    or croon at midnight
    strumming guitar. 

    You are there beside me
    no matter the rainy storms
    or the freezing snow. . 
    Even when my mood reflects
    the colour of the darkest nights
    'You are there'
    And I know... 
    Love doesn't need a filmy story.

    Wind : A Journey

    Leaving behind it's womb the sea
    The timid wind begins it's journey 
    Swiftly crossing the sandy beach 
    Tickles the leaves of coconut trees

    Laughing lads, play hide and seek;
    Women are sorting the catch squatting. 
    While men get busy with nets to clean
    Wind smiles at the folks and swirls with glee

    Gliding past the lush green sight,
    it floats to the place that looks like a maze
    Perplexed wind pushes it's way with might
    Coughs in the frowsty sulfurous black haze

    Through the slums, tastings sweat and tears
    Thousand dwellings in hundred square feet
    It crashes against the concrete structures
    No welcome, no way in, but through the ACs

    The sweat and the tears it carried along, 
    are crushed and shattered and thrown aside
    People inside have forgotten how to breathe
    No care; No love; Are they all machines? 

    Gaping gaps in the concrete jungle
    Distraught wind is stricken with despair
    Seeks refuge from the mountain standing tall;
    A silent witness to the growing divide.
