Navrasa: Laughter

When the phone rings, I think it’s you

Calling to tell me you’ll be home soon.

But the voice that speaks up belongs to a stranger

And, sounding sorrowful he says you’re gone forever.

He says there was an accident, because of the storm.

And just like that, he says Continue Reading

Navarasa: Compassion

Hey buddy, don’t worry,
For these eighteen long years,
We’ve walked endless miles together:
Good times and messy pasts,
We’ve been through fire and ice.

 

Every bubble which brings you to tears,
I’m here to cry my soul out, with you,
I’m here to hold you; lift you higher… Continue Reading

Navrasa: Anger

I sit in the pit of every man’s stomach.

I’m not just a fire they mistake me to be.

I’m cold, a blue chill that runs down the spine.

I’m the thin veil enveloping the heat.

Navarasa: Courage

A lady said her son

Fell on the sidewalk.

This gave everyone in the neighbourhood

Material to talk.

Didn’t inform us of the Continue Reading

Navrasa: Peace

To whom I call out,

In times of catastrophe

That lay about.

 

As the cannons of valiant and tireless soldiers

Tell the tales of devastation and flame,… Continue Reading

Where has my eloquence disappeared? ⁣⁣
I pause, I stumble.⁣⁣
Dissect every thought⁣⁣
Into minute fragments that⁣⁣
No longer make sense. ⁣⁣
That seem out of context. ⁣⁣
Purposeless.⁣⁣
On, I ramble. ⁣⁣

Then I wonder what I was trying to say. ⁣⁣
What led to this cut … Continue Reading

Orbit – Day Twenty Nine of NaPoWriMo

 

The spheres curve along
my well-trodden path
Engrossed in their bustle
Unseeing the all – seeing

I am the perpetual passage
Constant in the chaos
Quiet in the commotion
A Hyperion incarnate

Around my busy lanes
Meteors burst
Twinkling in the twilight
Planets collide
Upsetting the utopia

But I … Continue Reading
