King of All Fruits

Eating Mangoes could be a privilege in those places where they are in abundance. Contrary to the belief of taste, our orchid guide used to instruct about the necessity of picking up every mango, be it raw or ripe. The reasons were animals and other infestations. In the upper roof of our house where mangoes were kept in dried grass and jute bags, we sat and ate to our contentment. Say it now for the love of fruit, as few we can afford in high rising prices, each piece seems like eternal nectar. Life may be of a span but in due time, we lived beyond ourselves.

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.
