In a place unto itself ,

Hidden deep inside me ,

In city of lost dreams

We hold ceaseless conversations

Leaden with pauses

Longer than the night
Resonates with unexpressed unformed thoughts.


The heady scent of night flowers blooming,

Dusky sky studded with tiny stars

Whispering winds hold unuttered

Secret desires, longings

resonating silence,

Leaden with passion

beholden me

await your

sweetest soul- closest to me

Though bored she always pretend to be

Lazing in his lair

Sings songs of unknown meter

None can ever be more sweeter

Dawn n Dreams

Dreams, they never last
like mystical tune lingers
dawn arrives, so fast


A moment apart;
Waves soar high, crash.. fade away
Death at impasse

A haiku :)

Tears of sun,
Scorches, cheeks of earth

Man ???.... Helpless!!

Will you ever?

Sometimes may be,
deep in the night
Across the seven seas,
into my dreams slowly,
Will you ever arrive?
Just may be ?

while the moon blushes,
behind the cloud;
the gentle wind rustles the leaves,
Memories heady like raat rani,
An unheeded symphony

Will you paint them red?
those dreams flowers,
tantalizing, fragrant,
vagrants blooming,
In my head !

Will you ever?

P.S: Thank you Anoop for the editing


A call, some words said;
A lifetime lived in moments,
Farewell left unsaid.

Don't go, stay!
Words on my lips, dies
