The Glass Jar

She looked back one last time, as her slender fingers clasped around the door knob. She retrieved her steps looking longingly at the picture on the coffee table. Her small world captured in a frame. No, I cannot do this. I have to go. If I stay any longer, I will never have the courage…

Ramadan Reminiscence

There are no Adhaans, no call to prayers in this part of the world, I miss the melody that ring in the air, across the world in another part, more in these blessed days, there are no sahar khan, no waqt-e-sahar drum shouts, on the roads No announcements, no pronouncements, of Iftaar, Iftaar, Iftaar ringing…

The Amusement Park

The glittering lights, the noise in the air, laughing, excitement, aroma of delights, colorful candies, the fun shrieks of riders, the yohoos, the bohoos, the roller coasters galore, the play games , the toys, the disappointment of not winning, the sheer fun of trying, again and again, the lasting memories of a carefree life! After…

Anticipation

There are two ways, I look at life, one with my eyes, that read too much, one with my heart, that cares too much. One sees what it wants to the other believes in delusions, between the two, is torn apart, in agony, pain and tears, the  urge of a seeking soul.  

Nobody!

Nobody on earth died twice his eyes took it off the wall, a little laugh inside his head, teased his broken heart, poked at his soul, nobody died on earth twice, the broken peices of his heart sighed!  

Caged

Sometimes in this cozy room my feet get cold, I feel the shivers travel, right through my heart, into the silent soul. The eyes fail to make anything, it is all white, everywhere, distant noises fade away, quieter, every passing day silence overtakes them, the screams that rage inside of me. I look around and see nothing…

My Miracle

I looked faraway, in an uncertain place, at a distant time, while it was right here, inside me, the miracle, I had been waiting for. Unnoticed, Unappreciated, Ignored, oblivious to my seeking eyes. Our small moments, of togetherness, of shared love, of laughs and tears, of fights and make ups, of dreams and fears, all right here, all…

Alone

I listened to every word that you said on that day a resounding slap to my heart was the silence that passed between us after all our time, I realized It was just me, and never us.        

The Song of Spring

Behold them colors Ah! what sight, refresh your soul, let them in, through your eyes. The fresh pink, the chirpy yellow, the naughty lilacs, the pansy blues, the serene whites, between the naked earth and green, dancing with the spring wind, to the chirping birds, singing songs of love and life. I hear them Tulips…

Love 

If love is a game to you, you are playing alone, holding back, planning the next move, going by the rules someone scribed, manipulating me to love me, than I am not game to you. If love is being who we are, in all my imperfections and in yours, reaching out to hearts, accepting, cherishing,…

Sonder

I look around and know I am not alone, there are millions more shedding a quiet tear, broken smiles, wounded souls; not giving in, striving more, on the fading paths knowing unknowing themselves in days and in them nights between self love and inner fights amidst happiness and silly joys a little of me,I see, when…

Being a Woman

Softhearted, a strong resilient soul of kindness, love and forgiveness; an epitome filled with hope, warmth and happiness a lowered gaze, head held high in pride and not in arrogance modest, charming; an unyielding solace a ray of happiness, a source of strength gather up your spirits lady you are who you want to be, baby….
