Gustatory Indulgence!

The pack of freshly baked donuts on the table,

entice me with their alluring flavors,

delighting my senses with heavenly aroma.

Classic, cinnamon and coffee work their magic on me,

 as my will power melts under their saccharine glaze.

I succumb to the temptation of a sinful indulgence.

I gently pick up one, inhaling its flavorsome redolence.

The sugary sprinkles peck my lips, with a flirtatious tease.

A bite into the soft glazed buns, leaves me in raptures.

I revel in the tantalizing effect it has on my taste buds.

Satiated, my mouth drools a dulcet harmony.

Well, I guess I am forgiven

for committing adultery with my diet plan.

It was after all, just a onetime scrumptious affair!

Photography – Focusing on the Details!

Lens Artist Photo Challenge #146

This week, Patti invited us to post photos of the details from one subject ( a person, place or object) or many subjects!

My theme for the above is pictures from my kitchen escapades!!

Experimental escapades bring out a melange of flavours

some are a sensory delight, while others disappoint.

Sizzling pans, crackling spices, the whir of the blender

orchestrate a palate, to tingle the taste buds

focusing on the details, is a tested recipe for a gastronomical feast!

Some of these pictures are clicked by my daughter.

Choco chip cookies
Healthy veggie salad
Strawberry, Mango and Chocolate truffles
Summer Delight
Savory muffins

Triple haiku

In response to Ronovan writes haiku challenge #196, : Prompt words : Shy & sweet.


eyes lock in a gaze

shy lovers speak in silence

sweet tender love blooms



kindergarten school

sweet little kids, a shy lot

first step to learning



the shy canary

hums sweet melodies of spring

echoes natures rhymes




Happy Holi!

A Nonet for Holi!

(Nonet (9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1) progression downward of syllables)


The spring ushers in festive spirits

 vibrant blooms sway to the zephyr

tangerine, crimson or blue

a riot of colors

forgetting their woes

all come alive




Wishing all my blogger friends a very Happy Holi ❤ !




I unwrap the colourful wrapper

to catch a glimpse of the perfectly shaped

assortment of classic beauties.

The dark ones and the milky deep browns

white silky creme’s  and bitter sweet ones.

As my eyes admire its smooth texture

I can feel my mouth salivating in anticipation.

Excitedly I dig into a generous bite.

Melting in the mouth

to a tantalizing burst of flavours,

there is a deluge of  supreme rapture.

The feeling of heavenly lusciousness lingers,

the temptation to indulge in one more

of this sinfully desirous relish is overwhelming

and I meekly submit to it!
