And A Star Is Born

A racing stream,
At the edge of earth,
Almost mercury in colour,
As it flows over jagged rocks,
Reminiscent of our memories,
That never ceases, actually

Cream breezes brushing past,
Under the yellow light,
Sitting near a corner pillar,
Dressed in maroon silk,
Wowen with gold threads,
My sister warm and beautiful

Passages of time in memory,
Over legendary edges of rivers,
Bones and skin petrified,
ideas in revenge of ages,
As we looked at the setting sun,
Slowing down for love

Scents of jasmine,
Frozen still around us,
When in time you asked,
Many questions that I answered,
And when you fell asleep,
The setting sun already a star


[-] Forever in wanting, for not having a sister. Forever will I be in waiting, even when I know she wont come. Many of my present memories dominate a timescape where I have a sister, something I feel deeply lost about, something empty inside me because I never had a sister. I think having a sister completes our lives.
[-] I did not actually go away did could I, this is the only place I can tell the world what I see and live. Still haven't managed to get rid of the migraine.

I have craved many times for a sweet sister, if some one tells me about playing and fighting with their sister. It’s one of the best poem form you, esp. the last Para.

i do agree with u, and can very well understand ur craving for a sister, gp. the person i am closest to in the entire world, is my sis, who has been there, all thru, putting up with every unbelievable eccentricity of mine. :) but i guess, i am never content with what i have. i remember ranting non-stop abt not having a younger brother, whom i cud have (possibly) bullied around.

hey. its great to see that u r still around and hvnt succumbed to the migraine.

do be here! :)

Hey Ghost...

I'm lucky enough to have three sisters and while they can sometimes be a pain, at least growing up with them, they're things of beauty and great teachers about women.

I also have two brothers, so there was always this neat equality and balance goin' on...

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
