Let’s walk together…

With love as the locus of our relationship, let’s walk the talk, bridging the generation gap between us

converging on our divergent ideologies and identities, discarding the judgemental lens,

creating endearing stories of wizened wrinkles and vivacious spontaneity.

Let’s celebrate our differences, without any pretense, cementing it with a bond of acceptance,

sharing our joys, secrets, tears, resilience, translating moments to memories and lacing them with a twine of unconditional support for each other,

‘coz when the generations walk together hand in hand, the world radiates an ebullient spirit of harmony.

No Vacancy!

Our love blossomed floral foliage,

 resplendent with vernal scents.

Animated hearts hummed sanguine tunes,

life reveled under a canopy of euphoria.

And then windmills of change rattled a strife,

a squall of distrust blew whorls of inky smoke

suffocating me in virulent fumes.

Fidelity eclipsed felicity,

my bruised heart bled red.

I patched up my wounded heart with a promise

 to let it remain vacant forever.

I have written 2 haiku for Reena’s picture prompt. They can be read in continuity or as two distinct haiku.

Abusive childhood

wallflower disposition

behavior issues

Orphanage to home

contemplative reflection

family at last?

The Diagnosis!

The diagnosis, screeched their busy schedules to a grinding halt,

causing a major upheaval, it cast a somber shadow of gloom.

Allaying their fears, they emerged from the shocking daze,

draped their pain with a tapestry of mental resilience.

Chucking their jobs, they filled their bucket list with wishes unlimited,

 set out to live the handful of remaining life, fulfilling each of them.

They traveled far and wide, discovered new facets about each other,

laughed to their hearts content, indulged in childish pranks.

In a battle against time, they walked down the reminiscent boulevard,

energizing their grieving hearts with gracious gratitude.

Savoring every moment together, they lived life to the fullest,

creating beautiful memories, before death would do them apart.

The Essence…

Each dawn brings with it a gift of a new day,

 spectral rays paint the earthen canvas with vernal colors.

Seasonal changes alter the composition

yet, weaves a cohesive mural of the landscape,

singing a song of nature’s soul.

Today I walk down the memory lane

when your birth brought in unbridled joy.

Iridescent hues of your facet brightened my life.

Despite the differences, our bond matured with a homogenous spirit,

singing a song of enduring love.

 Nature, whose visage keeps changing with time, showcases a different seasonal look. Yet from its soul, emanates the same essence of organic feel. Likewise, the relationship between a mother and daughter has streaks of emotional highlights. They may have their moments of ups and downs, yet they are bound together by a strong bond of love. Time may change their look and perspective, but in both cases, their soul sings the same song.

Let’s Make Memories!

Let me revel in the joy of holding you in my arms

 capture that priceless euphoria in my heart.

Let me bask in admiring your innocent beauty

feeding and burping you, taking you out on a stroll,

serenading in your gurgles and toothless grins.

Let your unbridled laughter reverberate loud.

I promise to be patient, tolerating your naughty pranks

maybe, a small reprimand for a wrong you do.

I’ll be by your side when tears flow down,

tending to your bruised knees and scraped elbows.

Grow up to a life of endless possibilities.

Paint your world with colors of curiosity and imagination,

 catch butterflies, climb mountains and enjoy picnics.

Together, we’ll explore the fairy tales and fantasy world.

You my little darling, are the best gift to me.

So, lets weave together beautiful memories of your childhood,

before you flap your wings and soar high into the skies.

Cheated in Love…

Endearing moments, amorous feelings

romantic hearts seal, a promise of “ and forever…”

Rendezvous under the silky darkness

 whisper echoes of sweet nothings

stoking the flame of frenzy,

 whorls of scarlet emotions flow.

Heady tangled intoxication

tastes the elixir of passion.

The morning zephyr

blows the embers of rhapsody

 only the charred remains linger.

Her naïve heart,

misread his illegible scribbles, for love.

Broken dreams scatter into oblivion

teary eyes blur the memory of intimacy

painful scars etched, heartbroken,

her vulnerability is there for all to see.

Unspoken Words!

It’s been an year since I published my maiden poetry and haiku book titled “Eclectic Verses”. Thank you for the wonderful response and feedback many of you have shared with me. Sharing one of the poems from the book. Do read it if you haven’t done so as yet. Sharing the link for the book at the end.

At times silence speaks volumes

the sublime conversations

whispers the language of love

narrates the saga of implicit verses.

Eyes drown in your bewitching allure

the face buried in your lustrous tresses

the words unable to fathom the feeling

of those beautiful moments of silence.

Under the effulgent moonlight

the hearts wallow in the beauty,

with you, hand in hand

entwined with some unspoken words.

Scarlet Love!

The gentle chimes announce

the fragrance of your letter

from across the seven seas

twirling at my doorstep.

Indigo ink frame the calligraphic letters

pouring emotions on to the papyrus.

Words dipped in intense passion

come alive on the scented pages.

My heart impassioned by your poetic scribbles

 beats in a feral frenzy.

Your love wraps me in a warm embrace,

satiates my tendrils of longing,

sealing it with your scarlet love.

And Forever…

A first dreamy date, basked in the

warmth of sunshine romance,

comes alive with the glint of scented vanilla,

 that wafts with the fragrant scarlet red asters.

Drenched in crimson tides of passion

timeless whispers pen love sonnets

 heart-warming gestures, moor their soul

like wine, their bond matures with age.

Today the old radio plays a nostalgic song,

 silver strands define the receding hairline,

toothless smiles brighten the twilight years

wrinkled hands tether to old pictures,

 visit the boulevard of sepia toned memories.

Joyful reminiscence of the bygone seasons

unwinds a spool of snapshots

 scripting their saga of eternal love.
