Meandering thoughts………..


November 2014


Googd byeThe sun kissed the dew

the birds chirped a melody

welcoming dawn

alas I will never see another dawn

The hands that held the rifle

to safeguard my mother

will never comfort my daughter

The eyes that scanned 

the landscape for enemies

will never light up with pleasure

at the sight of loved ones

The life blood that coursed through

pays homage to my mother

at her feet

her very being that I fought for

The heart that loved you mother

will beat no more

Every breath for you

and the last too

no more would I salute the tricolour

on the way to my final journey

draped in it….


A cup of Coffee

A cup of coffee 

with old friends….

A walk down the memory lane

with new friends

its making new memories

with friends forever

its sharing of thoughts

with a lover

a minute becomes an eon

with kisses and cuddles

the flavour stays with you

long after the cup is empty…



Can’t stay forever…..

I gazed at him, scared even to close my eyelids for a minute, his form relaxed and unguarded in sleep. I smoothed those eyebrows that had frowned at my daughter a couple of hours ago. My fingers traced the aristocratic nose and travelled down to the lips that had curled up in a smile. I wanted to share his dream, a yen to know what had broughtfly away the smile to his lips, those lips that bestows me with kisses when I least expect. He turned over and threw an arm around me, the same hand that holds my life, the same hand that wipes my tears. I hugged him tightly to me and never wanted to let go, but I knew that the day is not far away when he is going to fly away from my arms, he is not going to stay in my arms forever….My son.


On a rainy day

The earthy smell of rain

assuaged my senses and my memories

left far behind

that haunts like a melody long forgotten

getting drenched to the soul

while the rain drops kissed and caressed

like that of a lover

The earthy smell of rain

creates the craving 

for the hot, lip smacking savouries 

mother dished out

which burnt my lips and tongue

to be kissed better

by the clear droplets of rain

rainy day

The earthy smellof rain

hands yearn to hug

friends who sat with me on the bed huddled sharing

the warmth,memories and promises

with rain bearing witness to those lazy afternoons

that looks like a hazy 

black and white picture in the album

that is never flipped through

The earthy smell of rain

evokes the hunger 

to recapture the spring of my life

hugs of my mom, reprimands from dad

shared laughter with friends

careless dancing in the rain

gentle,kisses and hugs from you 

fills up my soul with warmth

the earthy smell of rain.




Lover’s Touch

Sinewy arms engulfed me

lost myself in that Hug 2secure embrace

Masculine fingers that tuck my hair back

traced a trail from my cheeks to nape to fingertips

I yearn to travel that path in him

hot breath caressed the valley of my nape

to inhale the musky essence of me

voice that trembled 

entreated to lavish kisses there

sensuous lips paid homage to mine


the eyes that smiled down at me

invited my lips to curve with his

the eyes that smile down at me

strikes the death knoll for me…….
