Rain Rain and Rain

Wow !!! Seems to be raining cats and dogs out here ....Awesome rain tonite ...The thunder and the lightning ...The power supply getting cut ...the torrential rain ....nothing better than that ....memorable night ....Everyone coming out of their rooms for a change ...And crazy people like me getting wet and few people too scared to get wet ....Hope this rain goes on and on ....Just observing the might of it gives you so much to thing about ....I had written this poem some 3 months back ...But now seems to be a ideal day to post it ....


A moment of joy
A moment of pleasure
A moment when you think,
You can be a kid again
Bringing a wide smile on your face
Nourishing each and every drop of it.....
Something which brings everyone together
A rare sight these days
The clouds shudder
The trees opening their somnolent eyes
Coming back to life....
The sound so profound
Waking everyone from the shackles of slumber.....
Giving them a new hope
A new life.....
Another enduring quality of nature
Giving us happiness
What so ever we do with it......
A great lesson we learn
To keep doing what we are meant to do
Not expecting anything back
Coz in the end whatever the outcome
There was at least at attempt from our side
To make things go the right side........

99 Balloons

Earlier this month I was personally moved after seeing a video that was posted on Youtube about a little boy named Elliott, It was simply not possible to contain my tears at this precious life. Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word. It just shows the amount of wonders a tiny soul can do to anyone. The best thing that can happen in life to anyone is having a child and the amount of happiness the parents got spending 99 days with this exceptional child perhaps can never be replaced. This is my tribute to their eternal love, limitless care and unremitting affection. RIP Elliott.

A story about a Girl

There she was ....At the corner of the room sitting on a bench ,her head thrown back ...The aura around her had a charismatic feminine elegance that seemed out of place on that dusty, rickety bench....She wore a skirt that had a light shade of red which draped shapelessly about her lissom body....Her hands were on the table, her posture taut as if she were unconscious of her own body....The look on her face gave a feel of someone very astute yet diffident....Those teensy weensy black eyes gave fascinating insights about a story that intended to reach someone....Those luscious lips, that mesmerising smile had a message to convey, a message so serene yet profound ...


There is a place somewhere in the world

Maybe it’s a lot like your world

Maybe it’s nothing like it

But if you look closer, you might find someone like you

Someone trying to find their way

Someone trying to find their place

Someone trying to find their self

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you are the only one in the world

Who’s struggling,

Who’s frustrated

Or unsatisfied

Or barely getting by

But that feeling is a lie

And if you just hold on

Just find the courage to face it off for another day

Someone or something will find you and make it all ok

Because we all need a little help sometimes....

Someone to help us find that rhythm in the world

To remind us that it wont always be this way

That someone is out there

And that someone will find you ........

That’s always the hope of life,

The thing that still keeps us going

That one day everything is going to be fine

Just too perfect to be true ........
