Everyday I hearThe soft tap- tapOf your walking stickA bespectacled grinOut of sync with the grey's You stretch stiffly in the parkWaiting patientlyFor boisterous children to passBlessing themWith your loving eyes Gathering herbs for your teaFlowers for the pujaAdmiring butterfliesLost in deep contemplationAll with your signature grin I only wishWhen in life, I reach your stageTo share my whitesThere will beAn equally infectious smile!

Most writers I know would attest to the fact that writing is
a very lonely exercise. Putting yourself out there, in the unforgiving ether of
space, for the world to get a glimpse of your thoughts and unique perspective, takes
immense courage and conviction in one’s own abilities. Getting instant and genuine helpful feedback on your work, a
nudge in the right direction when you are struggling with an idea or concept,
or just a plain push to write more when you are being simply lazy is a boon for
anyone who chooses to wield the pen. Writing everyday is no mean task; putting in hours of
careful consideration to pick topics for your posts. Making sure they are
relevant to your audience, beautifully presented, holding reader attention and
leave the reader with some food for thought. Wouldn’t you consider yourself fortunate if you came across
a fellow blogger who made your journey so much more enriching just by their presence?
You might never have met the person, but a deep connection exists…
The Lord's empty throne Graced by wooden padukas A kingdom exiled
This Haiku takes inspiration from the Ramayana, specifically Lord Rama's exile. His loyal brother Bharat ruled the Kingdom of Ayodhya as Rama's regent, refusing to grace the throne during the Lord's (Rama's) fourteen year exile in the jungle. He placed Lord Rama's wooden sandals (Padukas) on the royal seat, awaiting his return from the forest.
Mag 270Her ashen faceTurns to greenLike her translucent wingsHead bowedShe pleadsFor redemptionAnother chanceFreedom from her cursed lifeFor she is trappedNeither human, nor flyCondemnedTo nothingnessExposed, numbedMired in infamyHer heart sinksA river of silent tearsJust thenThe curtain falls
