Food was a luxury for them!
Food was a luxury for them!
bereft of love
devoid of emotions
on borrowed intimacy
with a ruthless garb
plunders all night
a petrified mind
and a trampled soul.
an emotional vacuum
silent screams echo
Words fall short to describe some moments in life, it’s a surreal feeling. That’s exactly how I felt on getting my first book published. Encouraged and motivated by family, friends and many of my dear blogger friends, I managed to fulfill this dream of mine.
My poetry book titled “Eclectic Verses” is an amalgam of 125 poems and haiku. This diverse mix of words and emotions, makes it an interesting read. Each section suits diverse palates, giving you food for thought. The cover page and the illustrations have been designed by my daughter.
e book, listing at Amazon.com and other international bookstores will be available shortly.
Please do spread the word in your circles.
Hope you reward my modest maiden attempt at poetry, by reading it and sharing your feedback on the same. My heart beats at a frenzied pace, as I eagerly await to hear your verdict on it.

Life is a number game isn’t it?
Numbers define success and failure
sometimes more is good and at times not.
But why do we fail to measure and tabulate
values, tears, smiles, beauty or love?
Guess, somethings in life are priceless!
dawn exalts a coral blush
mercury soars high
punctures the billowy clouds
casts a scorching gaze
the western skyline
brims with wisps of lavender
In response to The Sunday Whirl, #443 to weave the above words together.
The trek into the woods with friends went totally awry. The adventurous I, ventured off limits. The tumble down the slope, left me bruised and alone.
Lost in the wilderness, I tried to figure a way out. The air reeked of pungent forest smells. Howl and cries of the wild beasts echoed. Dark foreboding clouds loomed over the dense canopy of trees. The silhouettes seemed to draw an eerie imagery against the darkness. My heart was pounding loud. I felt something move slyly to my side and let out a shriek. Taking to my heels, I turned and ran far. Panting and gasping for breath, I eased my steps a bit.
Suddenly I felt a piercing pain grip through my arm. I could feel blood trickling down. Fear and panic gripped me. I felt myself losing control, when a pair of strong arms held me before I slipped into a dark void….
sanguine soul serenades
A picture speaks a thousand words and Actions speaks louder than words,
So the analogy is…… 😉
My destiny moans
among the clan of talents
branded a black sheep
Deserted by sleep
I cry at my restlessness
counting sheep all night
