My life wore a cloak of mundanity
over my inane wallflower mien,
until I saw you today.
As our eyes locked,
time stood still; the moment frozen.
You cast a magical spell on me,
a heady cocktail of emotions brewed within.
Your seraphic smile ignited a sensory euphoria,
undulating heartbeats drowned me in ineffable feelings.
I was drunk admiring your honeyed beauty,
as my life seemed to slip out of my control.
I must confess it was love at first sight,
or so I thought, until
I saw you walk into his open arms.
that was the end of my fleeting love story!

chirpy start to dawn
shadows play on verdant lea
gaily hops the bird
Pages of a book flutter, in the tiny hands,
letting him peek into a world beyond imagination.
Piquing the tender mind’s curiosity,
books present a palatable platter for every age.
The kaleidoscopic web of enticing genre,
churn a potent alchemy of awe and learning,
captivating the reader, conjuring a riveting spell.
Their magical potion works like a charm,
kindling a happy lifelong friendship with books!
Sadje’s WDYS #139
My mind is adept at playing games with me, follows no rules, and wields a power so strong,
the darkness of its depth leaves me petrified, I writhe under its sting, the pain seems unbearable
sometimes it shrivels like a deflated balloon, but mostly it swells up in haughty pride
it conjures up the wiliest thoughts, cementing it with resolute conviction and barricading it with an inflated ego.
I am blinded in a haze when it showers missiles of fear.
Wallowing in self-doubt, I feel like a hapless pawn under its clutches.
It is only when its sublime qualities come to fore, it rings in bells of happiness
I love its mellowed persona, when I get to be Me, revelling in a euphoric bubble, afraid that it may burst anytime.
After long battle of trying to gain control over my mind,
I have realized, its mercurial temperament is fraught with multifarious layers.
Demons and angels both reside in there, only whom I feed, grows!

Anchored to the harbor, by twines of anxiety
unknown shores overwhelm me.
Placid demeanor camouflages the conflict within me
Triumph lies beyond the tempest,
the spirit of accomplishment beckons me.
I just need to unmoor, set sail,
to break the spell of fear.

Had been on a short holiday to Kashmir. Sharing a few pictures and my thoughts on this paradise on earth.
Statutory warning : My pictures and words do not do much justice in capturing the true essence and beauty of the place. 🙂
Crown of the Indian subcontinent, radiant sheen of its bejewelled peaks transcends boundaries
beauty of seasonal variegations, pens a lyrical ballad sung by the drifting zephyrs
the valley bursts into a vibrant serenade of hues in summer and lulls itself to frozen rhapsody, when the cold northern winds blow
its frigid winters is thawed by the warm hospitality of its people, locals who celebrate brotherhood over religion
prayers in intoned cadence of the azan* melds in harmony with the chants resonating from the temples
Rogan ghosh, wazwan, kahwa, sheermal, rajma, kesar and spices waft a delectable culinary trail
Kashmir, a confluence of tranquil divinity and transcendental allure, is sheer sensory nirvana.
