The Happy Moment!


The Sun curled up in
The blanket of the night sky
While I chased my dreams.

While I chased my dreams
Peeped through the cosy cocoon
It showcased the stars

It showcased the stars
Offered me a hand of faith
The world watched in awe.

The world watched in awe
While the Sun planted a kiss
On the night sky's cheek.
______

And the happy moment came to me again!
The second journal which published two of my poems - Two and Singular and These Rains, arrived yesterday. Its launch took place today and luckily the venue was near my place. To say that it was an incredible moment, would be an understatement. I was almost in tears to see my mother and my best friend so proud as I walked towards the stage. I couldn't have asked for more.

No wait!

I also got my book signed by Irshad Kamil, a very renowned poet and lyricist. Ah! What a struggle it was but I would't have missed the chance in any case. :)

So now, I couldn't have asked for more.

  9. Fantastic, girl! Congratulations. Now you see how facebook can never match upto the clarity that a blog gives? I kept wondering what the book was all about!! And you'd not written anything about it as well, just posted a pic. Mysterious! :P

    Anyway, am very very happy for you. Want to see an entire book authored by you, shortly. Go for it. :)
