[Poetry] My Dear Smile

My dear smile, I will sing for you a welcome prayer. petals of joy, a melody of homecoming. Everytime you came and went, each  turned into an indelible event. Now that you are back with happiness, Tell me about the things you have seen and gained. love,dream or success ? What did you see?  The sight, …

[Poem] “Shining Shoes”

Your shining shoes of pride. They speak of your riches, they speak of your honour. tip-top elegance of ambitions. But this dirt of ignorance, on your shining shoes of esteem. That you fail to clean and  polish. It will stay, it will stain ; till you learn to leap and hop over the puddle of …

[Short Story] ” A glimpse of inspiration ” (Part 1)

Phulguri was drenched in monsoon rains. The furious wet winds have hit this lost and unknown corner of  the world. Struggling through the windy rain and darkness of the late evening, Jadhav was inspecting the railway line bisecting the road at Phulguri railway crossing.

[Poetry] Pain

There is a pain within, Don't know if I should sink in it, Or swim across it. This thought, this feeling, so unusual. This thought that muddles my peace. This pain, from a source of pleasance. This pain, that I hate; yet love its cause and reason.

[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 26] “Deception”

What you see is what you believe, the rest is truth left unseen.   About National Poetry Writing Month : #NaPoWriMo is a creative writing project held annually in April in which participants attempt to …

[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 25] “Utopia”

There is a strange euphoria in utopia; a perfect world we hope for, a dream that we own. But reality is flawed, we have to accept it like a mother accepts her son's mischief . unfair, unjust , unequal, rich and poor. There is wealth without health, friends but no family, good, bad and ugly. …

[NaPoWriMo Poetry- 24] “Hello Stranger”

Stranger- a friend , moment away from a hello. an unfamiliar face with a familiar interest. Perhaps both read the same author, dance to same music. But suspicion is a long distance to cover . You wish he would be the first, to come up and say hi ; but the rules of  distrust act …
