Random Musing – A Peek into the Future!

The rapid technological strides, paints bold strokes of change,

of the world that may be, in the times to come.

Flux of artificial living, incarcerates all things natural.

Emotions ossified by automated wiring of the heart

 bereft of feelings, nonchalant cryptic conversations ensue,

measured capsules, replace warm home cooked food.

Thoughts of people audible through a scan,

robotic intelligence commands erudite brains,

human touch lynched by technology.

Man, lives on a programmed existence.

A century from now, way of life may be unfathomable!

Love at first sight…

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.

 Alas,

that was the end of my fleeting love story!

Magic of Books!

Abracadabra…

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!

Mind Games!

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!

Unmoor!

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.

Kashmir through my lens!

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.

Emotional Emancipation!

Toxicity of relationships stifle me

tremors of raucous feelings erupt into an avalanche,

rustle the pages of thoughts,

scraping buried memories.

Torrents of unsaid words

trapped within the fortress of my heart flow.

Deluge of tears ink the blank paper

with whorls of pain.

Emotions that asphyxiated within

today,

taste freedom after a long battle of holding on!

Scarlet Rage!

Alexas fotos@pixaby.com

Every summer, the mercury rises a couple of notches higher. Life on the planet sizzles under its sweltering heat. The sun shines on with gusto, exhaling a blazing inferno. By evening, the crimson golden lava from its scorching gaze, intertwines with the blue horizon, blanketing it under a fiery glare. It bleeds red hot ire.

hot summer evening

splash of feral livid trail

a marmalade sky
