An Incomplete Story

An Incomplete Story

Neither all stories are true
nor do all have a happy ending.
Sometimes we may find a clue
Sometimes it is teeth grinding!
Life is one long zigzag story -
our characters are long or brief.
Consider your role transitionary,
If destiny is God... time is a thief!

The Open Door

The Open Door

A cozy corner- a hidden place
on a cream tiled floor.
That's what I call "my space"
just in front of the open door.
The cold tiles makes me feel good
during the summer evenings.
Inspiration often lifts up my mood,
words start getting wings.
The open door gives me solace
as hectic thoughts can run free.
And I can look at Present's face
while searching for Future's key.

Teenage

Teenage

As I reached my 13th birthday,
I learnt Im now a teen.
And less than 10 years away,
it’ll end with number 19.
“Big deal!” I foolishly thought,
what might actually change?
I was wrong, beyond any doubt,
when things started turning strange.
Eww, the acne…arghhh…hair growth,
where they never existed before!
Tragedy covered in layers of loath
creeped me out more and more.
Crazy hormones did crazier things –
I’m sure all of you felt the same.
Teenage changes so many things…
don’t be fooled by its fancy name!

The First Chance

The First Chance

Homesick people will know
when they find it hard to go.
For whatever reason it may be,
they just can't beat destiny.
Childhood home beckons the heart.
As adults we always move apart.
Still at times we feel homesick
when tedious day plays mind trick.
The smell of home fills the mind
Memories that aren't left behind
Now the first chance that comes by
I'll go home if I could fly!

Prompt, write a The First ______ poem.

Busy Birds

Busy Birds

Busy bustle of weekday morning
A break between classes
A yawn followed by some stretching
Putting down sweaty glasses
As I come near the window ledge
The pool sparkles in the sun
A pair of pigeons sat on the edge
Having a serious conversation
They bob their heads in dissent
Preen their feathers to look nice
Coo if they luckily assent
Flap wings in the water to entice
They can talk without words
Argue without any sound
I love to see the busy birds
They never fail to astound

Portrait of Words

Portrait of Words

Sitting in the warm Spring breeze
I try to draw a portrait of words
The exhausted sky looks at ease
smiling at returning birds
A few twinkling stars in the sky
City lights blinking bright
My shadow is asking me why
my curious feet are quiet
I smile a bit, I stroll and stop
I feel time silently flow
I stare around from the rooftop
While the city buzzes below
I often hear what I can't see
The spirit of silence
Darkness introduces to me
My heart's silent cadence

Prompt, write an introduction poem.

What might warm up our hearts?

What might warm up our hearts?

What might warm up our hearts?
Little joys of nature for me
Birds measuring the sky in parts
Puffy clouds floating free
The changing twilight skyline
bright streaks spread far and wide
The setting sun bright clementine
Moon emerging like a shy bride
The squirrel scrambling for treats
The butterfly kissing new flowers
The ants marching on the streets
Dragonflies in summer showers
Nature has abundance of treasure
For those who search little delights
I, for one, seek solace and pleasure
in nature’s simple sights

Almost Baked

Almost Baked

The little boy loves chocolate
Craves for sweet things
Picks up a shiny clean plate
And tries to pull some strings
All he wants is a big piece of cake
Loaded with chocolate cream
So Mommy's gonna bake
The delicious cake of his dream
The oven smells amazing
The baking is almost done
Can anything be more tempting
Than a piece cake for everyone?
