We have lost even this twilight.
No one saw us this evening hand in hand
while the blue night dropped on the world.

I have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.

Sometimes a piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand.

I remembered you with my soul clenched
in that sadness of mine that you know.

Where were you then?
Who else was there?
Saying what?
Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away?

The book fell that always closed at twilight
and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.

Always, always you recede through the evenings
toward the twilight erasing statues. 

-Pablo Neruda

Evenings will wear away
So will the days
And with a little more effort
even the nights,
There will be time
Alas, there will be time

"There is no insurmountable solitude. All paths lead to the same goal: to convey to others what we are. And we must pass through solitude and difficulty, isolation and silence in order to reach forth to the enchanted place where we can dance our clumsy dance and sing our sorrowful song – but in this dance or in this song there are fulfilled the most ancient rites of our conscience in the awareness of being human and of believing in a common destiny."

When you feel loved in most unusual ways
A little through the words , that leave you in a daze
More through the silence that prevails;
Through clatter and chatter , in the most complex ways
More through whispers and hums per se,
In the rhythm and sun
Or in friction and stun ,
Through serenity that engulfs , in most simplest of ways
More through thoughts, rising from haze
Through each of its flux and phase
When you feel loved in every possible way...

To ,
The fair old man who left us

I see you in my dreams, where I move my hand and pat upon your bald head ;
Where your illness seems to be leaving your body , you call my name and ask me to sit next to you , I hug you ! , In my dreams , I embrace you , something which I couldn't do when you were breathing ...
Breathing!  Yes , that's what was left of you. I'm sorry , but I couldn't see you like that. I couldn't bear to see you lying down helpless. Despite your sickness , your face would always gleam and it does in my dreams too ,
And that's what I will always remember...

"...To love and to nurture
Was never an option
That is in our DNA
That is how I am wired
I am rock by your shore
If your waves are severe
I'm your anchor  if you feel fragile or lost
But
To guard my own self respect
I know pretty well
How to disconnect
To the hilt I love to play, a myriad of my roles
But I can rise above each
to go on a blind date with my soul "

" And yet , as nothing real ever happens, that change is in itself an illusion. The ceaseless activity of time is self defeating, purposeless, and therefore null and void.
The more things change, the more they are the same. That is a terrible stability of the world. One day is like another, and when we die we might never have existed. "

Universes don't expand by cooling,
They burst open a blooming of fire and wonder
And what am I
If not barely contained, seldom restrained exothermic reaction

Despite all the ways I burn"

There is some unusual aura about the post midnight hours
The mind seems to find this eerie silence as an  enchanting muse
And the words begin to rhyme even with the eyes half shut
The thoughts flow from one to another and keep on multiplying until there is a creative piece at hand or sometimes a  creative blunder
Inspiration knows no time nor does the divine intervention

On some days, going around , thinking about random stuff  , it simply feels Mrs Dalloway-ish, the difference being that flowers don't amuse me . The Peter Walsh of my life never gave me enough to think about nor did the Sally Seton .
She might have people to reminisce about, but, unlike her,  I've got myself to think about.
I feel self sufficient. The party that is happening around doesn't bother me & I'd rather be wearing a  new dress than that old green one !

Maybe Mrs Dalloway  lived more  but she never lived enough...

Somedays, you wish you would not have to do the right thing. Giving a blind eye to the rules. Shutting aside the ethics. Forgiving people for their mistakes. Forgetting their faults. Melting away the prejudices. Fading the hatred, malice and grudges. Not letting anything come in the way , while you do what the heart says. There will be days when you'll come across situations which would call out for your mind to do the righteous deed, Then if you'd  pause and listen closely you'll hear your heart string a chord, that will  be the time when you'll deafen your ears, & again make the wrong decision to do the 'right' thing.

" This Cindrella house party goes off at midnight
And there is no version of the fairytale
Where she does not run away from the Prince
And back to her fucking carriage
Because she is a queen nevertheless
Blessed to live without him
And on her own fucking iron throne..."

What should you do when someone doesn't live upto your expectations or disappoints you
Or doesn't consider you as their priority ?

Complain ?
Hope that they'd change ?
Keep quiet and Adjust ?

Why not rather change yourself!
 Don’t expect from them .
Don't rely on them for your happiness
And
 Don't treat them as your priority either.

Because your peace of mind is priceless.

Why You Need to Go Where it Hurts

Go where your heart feels broken the most; amidst the pain in hunger and hate in crime.

Wildlife is dying, emissions still flying, such sombre praise of how much we have grossed.

The ice is melting, our souls are freezing, hearts of hope, now closed, stenosed.

With all that we’ve done, unutterably asleep, there’s no longer a place for arrogant riposte.

Listen where it hurts, go where you’re horrified, so much can be done with your heartbreak and time.

You are always needed where you feel the most pain; addiction and sickness or poverty and abuse.

Fear into hatred, wounding to flesh, hell is never far from licking the sane.

Drought, distrust, destitu...

Then,
I hear soft rustles of the slim lustrous leaves of the palm,
A flutter of the tiny lost bird,
Flawless chirps of night crikets,
A thunder above my head from the starless sky
Despite this wrenching orchestra of nature
Only those sweet things you whisper in my ear with that warm breath
Can make my toes curl
And this feeble heart pound ...

" Breasts
those round things that sing
of the harvest they didn’t sign up for.
Lemons. Apples. Mangoes. Melons.
Of being cupped in silk, cotton and lace
and a charade of underwires 
that mirrors get to face

Breasts 
those round things that sing 
of the tyranny of twin alphabets
AA BB CC DD EE
that size up 
and look down 
and make you pay a toll
for the burden of being too shy 
or the curse of being too bold

Breasts 
those round things that sing
of finding joy in hungry, loving hands
of losing sleep over cancerous glands
of tenderness, hormones and silicone
of being cast in headlines, songs, insults
rarely left alone

Breasts
those round things that sing 
of cleavages that speak of

As the clock ticks 4, Strain your ears and you'd hear a murmur of vagabonds ,
While a cuckoo will tune itself to the song of dawn ,somewhere you'd hear a distant bark , or the honk of a rare car, a tinkling from the bicycle passing by , screech of a sleepy owl, soft cry of neighbour's baby , a squeak of the hidden mouse, before your alarm comes up with its own peice of sound , open those eyes wide and hear the secrets whisper of the Cosmos, if you happen to wake up during the interim of morning and dark , strain your ears hard enough and listen to the music playing within the heart !

Poetically Mine ;

I was looking for two lines
amongst a stack of sheets
-Withered  and foxed;
That would perfectly rhyme
Touch the soul and get stuck in mind,
I would learn it,
Keep it safe,
Store it in heart,
Maybe flaunt it
by humming it from the start,
I'll recite it alone,
Smile to myself,
Fall into a swoon,
Only two lines !
Not more I ask ;
I found a scrap of paper
That lay unmasked
I wanted to crumble
And into the bin , let it toss,
For it had much more than I longed,
It then  shouted with ink
turning from black to red,
That it had so many stories to tell
And
Words that would dance
on the beats of my very heart,
It promised to sing to me
as and when I demand,
I was look...
