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…

Make that happiness count this children’s day! When a mother plays games on her child Her world turns upside down. When a father forgets judgement Her world shatters a little more. Her parents her guide But what when they decide to taker her ride? Her silence screams,bangs closed doors As she sobs on the floor….

An icy encounter – Jokulsarlon glacier

Large chunks of ice, Afloat the gorgeous lagoon, Creating magical shapes, Celebrates different hues. Offspring’s of the Vatnajokull glacier, Ghostly white, black and blue, Beside the lava giants, Wears a blanket grey. Mesmerized by its beauty, Casted in a special spell, I feel encapsulated in stillness, Flying with the icy winds. The water fresh on…
