Greens of life

New day, new leaves,Some shedding,Some budding. A few struggle to erupt,Breaking the soil,To find it’s way. The lucky ones,Crack from the womb,Of nurture of care. To brave the fiery sun,To sway in the breeze,To soak in the April showers. And yet emerge,Victorious,From a seed,Returning to a seed. Nidhi

The “sinking” mind…

Why I don’t feel any love, Why I remember the fluttering dove, The space in me begins to haunt, Makes me do things I fear I daunt. I feel the world pounces on me, Why can’t they just let me be, What makes me so vulnerable, Transparent and sentimental? Why is every tear questioned? Why?…

Tuberose

Tiny buds with pink tips, Like little girls with painted lips, White flowers on slender greens, Stand tall like poised queens, The sweet fragrance lingers, As I touch them with my fingers, Fresh and happy I quickly feel, Inhaling the scent my body heals, The nip in the air adds to this, My dear man…

Build a garden, be the plant 🌱

Build a garden,With no walls,No interiors,No exteriors,Where, Every space is yours,Every seed is warm,Every leaf is fresh,Every soil is moist. Where every soul rejoices,Dreams flourish,Aspirations dance,Independent of each other,The plants grow,Yet remain connected,By the water, wind and soil. The Gardner dies,But the plant remains,Beating fruits of his labour,His sweat appears like dew drops,On the wet…

Choose your fights wisely!

These tulips defy the cold,The harsh winds they hold,Standing strong and bold,Treat to every eye they behold. Why can I not be a tulip?Why do I take every stride on my hip?Why do I want to please everyone?When I do no justice to me the only one? Why do words effect my sanity?Why do I…

when the sky looses colour

When the sun begins it’s descend, And the sky looses colour, The burners come to life, A hearty soup boils. The aroma of the ginger lingers, And the turmeric stains the fingers. The porch light comes up, The cars come to halt, A fiery argument maybe, Ends with a pinch of salt. The birds fly…

A Chamomile Morning

Let me not do the usual today, Help me pass on the clutter away. I hear the wind ringing my chimes, As the crisp leaves leave their twine. Here I am sipping chamomile, Relaxing and letting the mind unpile. The flowers swell up leaving their colour The colour that fills my day with colour. The…

A colourful tale

Yellow for joy, get “redy” to love Spread the greens and beat the blues Shun the black and seek the gold Why shiver? When see a silver? Purple casts nasty spells while White rings ghostly bells. Thank you eyes for the myriad I see, For I know of many who cannot see. Blind not by…
