Gratitude

Pic : Self

you reduced
me to ashes,

and within,

the heat
of anger,

gently seethed.

till the cool
breeze,

fervently obliged,

lifting the
remanants,

of what was me,

and carrying
me there,

to the place,

where i was
meant to be.

Ruminations

Pic : Self

It was
never
about
the us,
that
the world
would see,

it was
about
the world,
that
the us,
could turn
into a reality,

and afar
from the world,
the you
and me,
could grow
free
and just be.

Musings: Love and Trust

Pic : Self

Like ‘love’,
another word
i love to
ponder about
at leisure is ‘trust’,

for like love,
it is seamless
in its existence,
and invisible
in its presence,

and in its
purest form,
exists beyond
what can be
put into words,

a bond beyond,
the best framed
legal contracts,
and social obligations
of the world,

for like love,

it is fragile
in its need
to be held tight,
existing only
till it does,

and once broken
seldom finds
roots again,
in the garden
where it was burnt .

Do you…?

Pic : Self clicked

Do you often
try,

to make sense
of everything,

that which
has happened

that which is
happening,

and that which
might happen,

or not
happen at all,

Do you often
think,

of the
what ifs,

of that
which you have,

and of that
which you don’t,

of the dreams
you chase,

and those
that fell by the way,

Do you often
question,

how the past
becomes immaterial,

to the reality
of a today,

or the difference
between

what you have
on paper,

and them
that are for real,

between those
that you can count,

and those
your arms can hold,

Do you often
ponder,

on how life
silently flows,

to a guaranteed
end,

on whether love
is a boat,

or is it just
the oars…

…for i often
do,

and often
i fail,

to make
logical sense,

of this
quzzical breath,

that feeds
me moments,

but also takes
out life,

And ever
so often,

my unseen
soul,

laughs amused
at me,

telling me
to go on,

refusing to
accept,

the simplistic
explanations,

that already
prevail.
