Tales of Silence






No words exchanged,
Only glaring eyes.
Faces forever,
Turned away.
Silence speaks,
Words of hatred.

Nostrils flared,
Blazing eyes.
Clenched fingers,
Gritted teeth.
Silence speaks,
Words of anger.

Drooping shoulders,
Dejected countenance.
Eyes awash,
With a river of tears.
Silence speaks,
Words of sorrow.

Stolen glances,
Filled with longing.
Dreamy eyes,
A rosy glow.
Silence speaks,
Words of love.

Desolate eyes,
Shrunken frame.
Protruding bones,
Palms outstretched.
Silence speaks,
Words of hunger.

Snow white hair,
Twinkling eyes.
Warm smiles,
An air of serenity.
Silence speaks,
Words of wisdom.

  1. Stolen glances,
    Filled with longing.
    Dreamy eyes,
    A rosy glow.
    Silence speaks,
    Words of love.

    Desolate eyes,
    Shrunken frame.
    Protruding bones,
    Palms outstretched.
    Silence speaks,
    Words of hunger.
    Great words Vyomi !!

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.


Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

My metamorphosis into a bun maska...

My heart leaped with elation When I read- Cafeteria announces the launch of a bun maska station    Now I could have my favourite snack Any time round the clock without holding back
Long winding lines at the chaiwala Seemed to attest that I was not the only one who thought so So light and fluffy, melt in the mouth! Is one ever enough? Umm no!   Can be gobbled up in a jiffy No mess, a time save, really quick and spiffy  Not one but  four versions to choose from Eat to your hearts content without any qualm     Bun with butter, extra cheese, and if you have a sweet tooth, there's jam  Accompanied with a hot cup of  sweet tea,  Anything better can there be?  
 Then one night in my dream Appeared  my super  thin calorie conscious friend who  thinks she's  supreme   I was as usual gobbling away to glory When  she began to bore me with  her  calorie story
  150 calories in a plain bun  A spoon/  cube of butter only another 100  Making a normal one 250 cal  An irresistible slice of cheese ap…
