Waterfall of Words - Birthday Wish

Seriously,I cannot Swim. ...Seriously!!
No Seriously, It's sad that I really cannot swim..Really?!

You are an artist and mermaid by nature. I appreciate, you are a great swimmer too, a true Aquarius trait I guess. I thought you should know that I cannot swim. And right now being seven oceans in between its difficult to be on time. But I can write this and all, only for you! Love You!

Happy Birthday (30th January) my sweet B-Buddy, Madhulika Garg! (Happy Now! I mentioned your name too, after all it is all for you)
Celebrating YOU!

Take my hand,
Hold on tight,
Down I fall,
Trusting, falling backwards!
Immersing waves of memories
Hope bounce exuberance
Don't let go,
Don't you dare even try!
In the darkness
And in the lonely nights
Hobble ebb and walk
Hold on tight
Show me the light
In your eyes
Light to light my way
I know no swimming
I got no fins
Paddle my life
You are my mermaid
Don't let me sink...
Pull me up with your hands
Take me deep
Into your world of ocean
Sapphire blue as sky
Teach me strokes butterfly
A pebble skipping, hurdles dropped
Full force reverberating echoing surface
Before sinking
Well spring of words
Surf surging survival
Swell on the surface of stream
Flowing, filling lines
Finding treble voice
In murmurs whispers musing
Tides and waves
Shades and images
Beyond the mirrors
Cleansing soul
Caring a pearl in heart core
Thirst to be quenched,
Cupped a cheers in joy
Spirit in few dew drops of desires
Floating over shallow fears
Dive deeper into dreams
I tried swimming once.
At least I tried.

I don’t know if it counts,
But if it hasn’t,
I can try back again
Kicking my legs up and down,
Syncing and making waves back forth and froth.
But I tried matching your wave-length
Slowing down and throwing off my rhythm
If it still not looks bright
What matters, at least I tried!
I wish my humble soul
Returns like a free bird
Chanting out for shower
Drizzle upon the shore
Sprinkle sweetness
Ahead the rocks placed right
Keeping you strong and rocking
Hours sitting would feel like a while
Marvel the milestones
Drenched in your handful of hue ideas
Feathers touching water
And then spreading
Smiles upon the water ripples
Get me back my wings
Waving in the wind, I wonder
I loved being with you
Under the ocean-bed
Carpeted with shells
Right now I rise high,
Teach me how to fly and sing
Sway in the breeze
Reaching the sky
Help me to try and glide..
After all, Grapes are sour,
The water for me was just too cold!

a whole lot of nothing

Good Morning love!

We are talking after a long time
It was yesterday morning we last spoke..
And at times when you are asking me
Simply the reply comes up nothing more,
Just a simple single word ‘Nothing!
I was nothing!
I felt like nothing. Less than...
When love gave so much of warmth to heart in a way
It was the same love which was liable to tear me apart from inside
Don’t know how I took one step forward and two steps back same time
I was there where I started
It all began here, slowly
I crumble a bed sheet with little tight fist
I want to sit down calm, next to you
And tell you, ‘I’m trying, really am...’
But I don’t say that.
Don’t even know why?
I choose to say ‘nothing’ in fact!
I hope you do everything just the way you are expected to do
I desire you act every time just that fair you are suppose to
You did see my eyes would never lie!
Only want to let you know that I care, really do..
I want you not to worry or hurry
I want to share in your happiness
I wish you to be happy always, but sometimes...
I just don’t know how..!

The First Jasmines - quote

Hue-day on Tuesday!
Quotes with pictures!!

Below is the picture of flowers which are known as Raat ki Rani (Queen of the night). These delicate flowers blossom with strong sweet scent spreading for miles throughout night and later flowers fall on earth by early morning. Favorable flowers scent stir up old memories.

Enrich Enliven
scented sunlight hours,
Filled with
fair memories
and bright flowers!


Here's wishing today Lakshmi Rajan Sir a very Happy Birthday!

I have a sweet poetry to share of my favorite Indian poet,
'The First Jasmines' by Rabindranath Tagore.

Ah, these jasmines, these white jasmines!
I seem to remember the first day when I filled my hands
with these jasmines, these white jasmines.
I have loved the sunlight, the sky and the green earth;
I have heard the liquid murmur of the river
through the darkness of midnight;
Autumn sunsets have come to me at the bend of the road
in the lonely waste, like a bride raising her veil
to accept her lover.
Yet my memory is still sweet with the first white jasmines
that I held in my hands when I was a child.
Many a glad day has come in my life,
and I have laughed with merrymakers on festival nights.
On grey mornings of rain
I have crooned many an idle song.
I have worn round my neck the evening wreath of
BAKULAS woven by the hand of love.
Yet my heart is sweet with the memory of the first fresh jasmines
that filled my hands when I was a child.

Embrace Love - redefining romance Quote

Couldn't ask for a better contribution to this blog!
Absolutely divine sketch done by Danny at Beautiful Blog Igor + André shared with David Roberts. The sketches speaks more than any inscription shall do, yet I have tried in my own way getting inspired and adding few prose reflecting the tone of emotions and moment in the sketch captured.

  • Thank you so much Danny for contributing your mesmerizing art work to this page. I just feel too moved by your kind gesture and it means a lot to celebrate creativity and colors together.

Rare reckoning emotion
Sculptural artistic brilliance
Scrupulously crafted
Enumerating embrace!

Unearth the hitches of young love
A hug would help and heal mellow
Rare she said, as she softly whispered
Eyes closed, fingers cordial, souls uplifting
First time purposely passionate
While a cute cuddle articulate voluminous
She got it down into four words,
"Do you love me?”

if only you knew - Love thoughts

Love - Pain this whole crazy yet sweet thing together..

How would you never know...
You would never know I assure,

How much in pain and tears I went through only to look good in front of you!
How much I search, pretty much everything that is related to you!
Every single quote, that song, those movies...reminds me of you!
How much I miss eating ice-cream in the rain..
Memories from decades flash and fade
Pain in love seemed purposeful
Concealed yet coupled with the rainy withstand.
Barely could I bear
Bet myself rain would wash away recurring fear
Last time tear slipped,
I don’t cry very often, but when I do I can’t stop.
Ones I was falling in love and now only falling apart
Bet myself I would not take another fall, not again...
If only you knew..
But I'm ready to fall for another moment into your gravity!
Merely possessing your warm hug, strong hold, broad shoulders!
Because you never know!
If you can recall, I always ask you to guess
It was only a way to make you say what I wanted to say
Perhaps I knew you knew
I have been longing to hear from you..
I have been longing for You!
Wonder then why you shy away
Why never said?
Before I truly told
And cracked those adore* code..
Say it to me now...“I’m in love with you!”
Simply say, “I love you!”

Waiting - Love thoughts to ponder

Love - Pain this whole crazy yet sweet thing together..
You might like this one too 'Just We'

Walking slowly and waiting down the steep climb...
How much I wanted to talk to you walking a mile!
I missed telling you my stories some real some which I made
I missed them all sharing with you...don’t know how?
I wished you would know, know how it feels, right now!
And just when you hold my hand helping me to cross the path
I sailed smoothly living my dream...
How could we not cross the boundaries of heart?
How could we finish something which we could never start!
Turn leaf of pages and days, keep promises and pray,
Drove miles in dreams before I sleep!
Please do not wait for my words to get wings...
Treated me as I'm only one,
Embracing my imperfection every time with your infectious smile!
Wondered wandering, was wait worth?
Waited for the reasons you said...
Waited to express the excuses I made..
At long last, I learnt to wait!
Waited just to love you!!
Left with the time to rewind the best time we had unwind at pool-side dined!
How could you not know, I can’t help waiting until the moment we talk again.
How would you know, I can’t help wanting to be more than just friends..
All your greetings to a friend that is me is still with me safe, coloring my soul..
How could you not know that all your memoirs are still crisp sight?
Just like clinging curtain slowly in the room creeps today morning’s first sun-light!

just we - Love thoughts to ponder

Love - Pain this whole crazy yet sweet thing together..

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I just wish someday I could actually tell you
How much I loved you..
How much I waited to get your call and...
How much I thought before calling you!
How much then I missed holding your hand!
How could you never understand?
Just two letters, one word ‘Hi’ I longed to hear!
Even if you did not mean it,
I desired if you had asked me “How was your day, Dear?”
And when I was sad,
How much I wished I could show you my pain-pail!
When I was watching you, wished you did see...
Perhaps even come and sit down next to me!
Wished you knew,
How much I wanted you to be with me all the while,
Just two minutes - just we two - just me and you...
When I was alone or standing in the crowd with a smile...
My smile had a reason that I would fancy your beautiful eyes!
This might sound like same old tune played again and yet again
Trust me it's more than rhyme, words or poetic sublime...
Oh! Darn it...Love gets me on every line, every time!
Wish you would figure out the true emotions intervene!

p.s. i love you - passionate prose

8 letters 3 words 1 meaning,
a Special feeling that you made me believe "I'm Special.."

Right now you are away
I am floating in intensity
When I am no longer near
Will you merely linger
Wait for the familiar tingling sound to hear
Kill time for the warm warp around
Take pause after first lone sip of coffee
Fill the little space between skip
With memories melancholy yet emptiness,
Find meaning of what existed
Stumble over to exit measure,
While the moment may or may not return,
The feeling will never leave you alone
Proclaim you are mine!
Brave desire, just claim
Cross sweet spans, sweet pain..
Profess, I am in love!

Draw doodles of us
Scribble names and decorate
Fill sky with red ink
Wonder about the morning dream walks
Appraise those poetic lanes
Reciting verses of infinite love
And colourful soft petals touching skin
Unraveling the unadorned undone
Explore, evolve, excel experience emotions..
Passing slow summer
Fleeting humid happy days, those rains!
Careless our single breath
Reminding the winter embrace
Treasure the moments together
Time has gone really sweet and slow
Amity in sync grows, unlimited possibilities
Salutations shared, smiles showed your care!

Last love was..
The first love was...
Latest love is such a lasting love!
I refuse to let you go
I want you to stay!
When words will vanish
Stories forgotten
Reality sets apart
Again self-indulge into work
Gauge control over heartbeat
Lost on transit ones more
Will you still close eyes to escape to me?
Will you miss writing mush without worries?
Tell me will you miss me...
Promise me you will still love me
When one day I fade away!

My resolution of New Year

What is your resolution for New Year?

A New Year Resolution means a firm determination to do something.
Having a solution for your problem/trouble or your trouble, troubling others.
~ Excuse me... I don’t have any problem and on the funny note if any trouble I got... I will not wait for New Year to start to resolve it.

A New Year Resolution means reforming a habit or brings a change in the lifestyle. It is a mindset to start something good and also try the best to finish it.
~ Oh, you mean just the way I say mission accomplished! TiNG!
~ Or you meant Running Race_ Start and Finish!

Sure you mean to have,
"Let there be scintillating beginnings and sparkling conclusions!"

O dear..A New Year Resolutions simply means...
either you are determined not to do certain thing
or you are persistent to do certain thing!

What do you choose?
Someone just few days back asked me, ‘What shall be your resolution for the New Year, 2012 ?’

There was no second thought, after years of riding an emotional rollercoaster of setting and breaking resolutions, I instantly replied... ‘I don’t make any resolutions in New Year...I have certainly never believed this formula ever in my life have worked!’
~ Genuinely grace the one who believe on the contrary!!!
When I was a kid going school, every New Year I used to make one of the so called resolution that I shall study harder yet to be really honest it never happened the way I thought.

Wasn’t I committed?
Oh! The goals were achieved anyways yet there was no satisfaction!
I was but only for a week or a month latter doing the routine stuff made me feel dull and I choose to go into a practice that was convenient to me.
I preferred something that was not just convenient but made me feel comfortable and happy finally!

I want to be HAPPY!
It’s just so SIMPLE!

The question is now...what makes you happy and content?
Well, definitely lots and lots of things. Of course there is an endless numbers in list, like shopping, walking, cycling, travelling, cooking and so on.... Even a thought of eating ripped red tomatoes with a pinch of salt makes me feel so Happy!
My way of exploring new fine practices to follow resolutions!

Okay, seriously tell me...
What make you feel CONTENT?
Something that makes you feel WORTH!
Great! Now here is the question so crisp.

'Well! The thing for which I'm passionate about', I replied!
Now what exactly is the passion! Isn't passion the routine stuff?

Don’t you see talented dancers, dancing or great singers singing almost every day like for ages...isn’t that boring and the routine stuff? A routine almost like a school timetable, everyday teacher shall come in the class, will teach and walk away.

...passion is effortless routine practice but rejuvenating process...
But sweets!
Passion is a routine that cannot make you feel bore or repetitive. Ironically every time you repeat, you create something new, you discover the light in you, absolutely regenerating you. The practice makes you perfect. And the practice which is powered by passion is much positive. Indeed, the practice of passion is such a rejuvenating process that leads to bliss and joy.

And when people are passionate about something or somebody, they effortlessly try to relate every bit of their thought, vision and act to their passion. Redefining the purpose of life. And something I have always believed that if one has pure passion he/she shall develop more compassion in life.

What makes me feel content...
I wondered for a while and definitely I was sure with the answer that was an echo of two words to describe the best of single minded thoughts of mine!

  • It is the CREATIVITY
  • And the COLOURS!
Creativity could be while dancing or singing or indeed performing anything you are passionate about.

To be more specific about creativity is something that I’m capable of doing, I can control and create on my own...words...that means writing and painting or sketching are the aspects I’m passionate about and this is something that makes me feel worth.

So this New Year, I want to be more PASSIONATE!

So do you want or wish to be...passionate?
Now if I wish...I shall wait for the destiny to take its own course and grace me with my wish.
But I want it...I shall work hard to posses my needs and create my own will-power to make it work for me.

Between I’m not against anyone who is strong-minded and have a resolution for the New Year! One who thinks to bring good change for thyself or people around can go forward with positive thought. It is their right to do right.

However, I honestly prefer prayers over resolutions.
My little prayers works fine for me. I have seen it, especially when the humble prayers are for others they are always heard positively. Prayers are more rewarding for me and fulfilling for others. It gives such a sense of satisfaction.

So where the life could be so fragile and sweet moments are silently fleeting away, I need to hold passionately the cords of hearts to play the best music to restore harmony power within prayers.

A balance between
Feeling and the Future Hopes
That holds for that glow!

Travel warmth chapter
Develop deep connection
Redirect to real

A commitment for recovered change,
Step back ones only to empathise the situation!
Step forward only to strengthen further the spirit!!

People define their own philosophy of having a resolution in New Year.
Interesting even I got one mine to follow and believe in my own way.

Besides the real definition of the resolution,
the explanation of resolution can also describe as how clear a screen can display. TiNG!Welcome Technology Touching our real life Ones MOre!

A screen with better picture, brighter colors, improved sound and overall much detailed, deeper connecting every dot developing into a broader view with much of clarity in focus.
So going with the today's technology term of brief... let’s enlighten with High-Definition (HD) the hearts with prayers for each other. Let each one have a better and broad views, beautiful thoughts and great idea in life.
Get a better resolution of prospect of life.
Awwe!! My resolution of life, a fresh start coming New Year!
Let the HD resolution be the the Resolution of the New Year, 2012 and Ahead!
