of hope / amber lights

like the droplets
on the window sills
one by one tiny dreams
they fall
and you told stories
of days and i listened
and when it comes to mine
it was silence
id rather hear you say
how much you love the world
id rather see you pray
to the god who loves you

like the cold droplets
now running in tiny streams
on the balcony flower patch
they are together formless now
you and me enveloped
in the maroon mist
searching for that instance
of amber lights flickering
which is hope in a failing world
where nothing comes
as wished


[#] Sometimes the heart yearns for too much among the derelict world where trust and believe have failed. Sometimes only hope remains, in all its divinity in our minds, and in all its fallacies around us.

deeply moving words u write bro .. the beauty of reading u is that the reader feel as if its their life that u r talking abt ... the second verse is amazing .. something tht can be read again and again esp the formless part ... something that I will carry with me thru this night ...

You spin magic with your words bhai !
How I wish I could write like this at times. My juvenille style !!

**I love the second verse.
you and me enveloped
in the maroon mist
searching for that instance
of amber lights flickering**

Beautiful !!
Take care.

Sometimes I think you dip your pen into your soul as you write.

This is wonderful!

Many a story wilts untold
In arches and whorls of the mind.
Someday. Perhaps someday.
They will all unfold.

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
