Diwali :)

Just how happy this corner looks.. :)

Season of blinding lights, candles and diyas, festivity, deafening noise of chakri aur hawaai, bright colors..rangoli, traditional dresses, feeling pretty, mehndi, its intoxicating smell, unfettered happiness, family get togethers, and ah.. Kaju ki barfi!

In a nutshell, Diwali is here.


Wish you all a very Happy Diwali.

And that pretty picture was clicked by me. Thank you!

This sexy number is my current love.

A Passenger.

The morning dew awaits you all night
Put your bare feet down, will you?

A gazillion stars have silence to share
Look up for a while, will you?

Tangible dreams are strewn across the lazy mind
Tie them in a knot, will you?

Brush off the fear of morbid existence.
Pace forward at your own cadence

Be a passenger, set off on a journey.
And meet me someday,
Under the mistletoe, will you?!

For I have outshone the glint of dew
For I have rested in silence of the stars
For I am a passenger,
I carry my tangible dreams
Trail my path,
And I will be your harbinger.

hemmed within the shell
of blackness, complete blackness
   I see silent light
like a hermit's solitude
hovering in a cocoon

This is my first attempt at Tanka.
Like Haiku, it is also a Japanese form of poetry but a lot older in terms of origin. It has five lines extending up to 31 syllables in a pattern of 5-7-5-7-7.

To learn something new on your own, is happiness.

Sneaking Around the Corner, Winter?

Image Source: weheartit
of winter
crawling up in
a slender motion,
as I snuggle deeper
along tired creases of
ivory sheet. A new day breaks,
brimming with morning blues, hazy dreams.

ACs have stopped being a necessity, fans are just goosebumps nothing, morning showers now give nth chills and shivers, having water straight out of the fridge has stopped being the easiest thing and yes, the mood of festivities and celebrations is spreading happiness everywhere.

Wow..I smell winters, finally! :)

About the poem:
This is a reverse nonet.
A regular Nonet is a nine line poem which has nine syllables in the first line, eight in the second, seven in the third...and ends with one syllable in the ninth line.

My first nonet was published here.

P.S: Did you notice a new page on Mirage? No? Scroll up a little..that's it...there: Published Work
Yuhooooooooooo! xD
