And I Blushed

This post is adjudged WOW post by Blogadda for theme "And I Blushed" on July 19, 2013.


Sitting on side with ebullient of our clan,
not far from this space, one could tell,
each one in their designer best,
while henna hands comply with infectious laughter,
playing around merrily.

In backdrop of music, flowery swing soared in air,
taking turns with fun, girls stride,
like fairies magical are they,
something amiss, jingle to my anklet,
to lovelorn heart recusing away.

Blended in thoughts of effusive affection,
not every day is as lovely as today,
between palm leaves of corner tree,
constant gazing eyes of my lover,
suddenly I noticed, and I blushed.

Echoes, my new poetry book

Echoes published by Write India is recently released in September.  It has been an amazing experience to through them once again and truly as desired they echo through mind and soul.

Here is blurb at back of book:

Consistency where life frames women in different roles and you feel inhabited.

In such serenity I sit and think saturated with thoughts.  A woman speaking of in her element perennially devises how way further will be for her without the barriers of struggle.  Nature is succour.  One easily connects with primal action born of thought. As innate as vital energy of mind and body, the poems here touch aspects of womanhood subliminally.

It would not be in woods or meadows far reaching only through echoes, it would beat deep inside throbbing and touching through aspects of life.



A Poem from Echoes:

Cold winds with those dark clouds
on my sky are my aspirations
where horizon of blue sublime,
tiny corpuscles of lime,
from where I have sprung and this haste
do I even know the melody…

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Moon and stars

moon again behind
the hills what
myth I build on my story


******

a star out of canvas
I am 
here with truth


*****

few stars in sky
and angles in and out 
can't locate more

******


only one more round
at moon hedge
full of jasmine
