Lets get lost together...

To the unknown shores,
Lets walk together,
Down this winding road,
As far as it takes..Lets keep moving..
No, you shall not be alone,
For I shall hold you hands
And sun, the moon and stars,
Shall be with us till the distant lands...

Lets forget all the worries,
And get lost together
With the passing wind
Lets fly in open skies
The birds will dance with us,
So will the autumn leaves.
Like a driftwood lets float
Down the river bend..

Oh to the unknown shores,
Lets sail away to glory
With the naughty gushing  waves,
Oh please lets not behave.
Just this once lets be foolish
And forget our way..
Through these meandering roads
Lets get lost together....

And may be then we will reach,
To that distant land.
Where sun and moon shine together
And never stay apart
With the glittering stars  and
floating sands,
Into the inroads of our hearts atleast
lets get lost together

On the other side of the moon

On the other side of the moon,
Breathes a naked world,
Of darkness and mystery
Of pain and misery,
And of pulsating rage unfurled
A tempest of supressed carnage

A shroud of secrecy it cloaks
With pent up desires, it chokes
Of whispers and nudges
Of malicious, unrepentant grudges
And of deafening sounds of silence
A world on the other side of the moon

Hidden behind the shadows
Scarier than the gallows
Of shifting and shivering sands
Lingers a  quivering land
Ah a land of veritable doom
On the other side of the moon

A song

Of hope and dreams,
A song I sing,
The sweetest song of all

Of tenderest care,
And simplest joys
Of mighty people  and small

A softest web,
of silken thread
A verse of delicate form

Of warmest hearts,
And noblest spirit,
And of kindness above all

I sing a song,
Of the glorious days
And the magnificent nightfalls

A song I sing,
The sweetest song.
It would be oft recalled

The inroads of my mind embroil in tumultous thoughts.
Callous reality interfere with persistent dreams.

Shadow dancing

Slowly she glided below titillatingly,
Half empty poses, vaguely flitted through
And with bated breath I looked;
Dazzled by her sinewy movements,
Onerous looks subdued into a smile.
Whence did she come from?

Dormant desires rose lustily;
And unbeknownst hands curved;
New songs reverberated as feet tapped in tandem
Carried with the rhythm, I danced.

It had happened finally. Shadows dancing through the valiant
Night, inspired me to
Gleefully envelope the darkness and step into light.

Acrostic only!

A thought
Carved through my words
Reared with emotions
Overlapped with dreams
Slowly evolves as a verse
This verse then,
Is gently refined and
Coarse ideas, fit into a rhythm

Obdurate thoughts are then obfuscated into
Nuances; Which are
Left to be interpreted by
You, my readers!

Twilight Dreams

Shadows dancing on the walls;
Like curtains, with the passing breeze;
Memories, flickering with the lamps,
That adorn the distant hills
And suspended, with bated breath
The instant when,
The day meets the night..

And at that instant,
A leaf from the past, revisits;
Brings along few whispers in the dark
Few moments from the park,
left behind.
A moment when lips parted,
To meet again.
And the moment when,
eyes met with shy candor in bitter sweet evasion!
Ah the heady romance!

It brings back the sunshine of youth
In the twilight of my life...

Men Goof, If Sly! - Sijo

To the symphony of rain and thunder, he struts.
Entranced she looks on;
With disdain he spreads the plume.
She, mesmerized by his beauty and variegated colors, is
And yet,when eyes meet, disinterest shines;
She knows,
Men goof , if (she remain) sly!

Prompted at : Tuesday title and Poetry stretch

This prompt is special for two reasons. Firstly, coz I have used an anagram of my blog title ( song of my life <==> Men Goof, if sly!)

And also coz I have used one of the korean style Sijo. I am not sure if I have given it a good try. but here is my first attempt!

It either consist of 3 lines lof 14-16 syllable. The first line introduces a theme. Second one elaborates on it and the third one has a twist in the tale :)

Few examples here..

The spring breeze melted snow on the hills then quickly disappeared.
I wish I could borrow it briefly to blow over my hair
And melt away the aging frost forming now about my ears.


Oh that I might capture the essence of this deep midwinter night
And fold it softly into the waft of a spring-moon quilt
Then fondly uncoil it the night my beloved returns.

So tender! I am gonna try more. I know this one is not upto the par.. but it is a start!

P.S: One of my friend on orkut write a poem using all the titles I have ever written on.. I couldn't help but post it here :)

In the Loneliness of winter, Echoes of silence around,
The Voices in My head, took me for a stroll with the past.
In the summer winds, did meet a Anonymous musician,
Chanced to read her blog song, penned in Love for the mighty sun.

A new dawn n unseen dreams, wanting to break free,
It wasn’t yet another ordinary day, a new day had come.
It had rained today, the after glow and the hues, called to kiss the clouds.
Along the afternoon sea, and the waves, I walked alone.

Time and Tide thou wait for none…
The change did bring the stormy weather,
And waters had weathered the summer’s charm.
My abode was an island of sorrow, Life…. Lost.

A vertigo heart and a Lonely tear in the contrived words,
Chained by my shadow I could feel a woman in me…
Yet again the anonymous Musician, now a Black Knight,
Yet again a poem, a fresh collage of dreams and hope.

Season is a master in disguise…it’s yet again a lonely night.
Winter! A flower had withered somewhere, Suicide….
Down by the river bend, a leaf had Dropped and died today,
Through the Lady in the green, am sending a postcard to the heaven,

Oh Fog! My Plea to you on this early winter morning,
If only I could go out, In search of an answer,
and the Lady lost in the rainy night, where are you?
It will rain today! Time for a Haiku at the least…

Come with a Candle thou on this windy and chill Evening,
To Keep you warm as thin Crest Pizzas at the Boca Grande awai


Dazed with confusion, I,
ddle you with questions
ettled by your intense stare, I
esist from
ncroaching your space.
ove however, binds us with
nvisible cords. you,
verlook my transgressions and
aively greet me with a smile

Candid conversation

You sift through my vague impulses
Thoughts that don't form completely.

Like a sieve,
You filter them with words.
Amaze me with them.

Candidly see through.
Me, I have no pretenses.

Just a veil.
Cobwebs of buried ideas
Left to gather dust.

Is it a risk?
This open conversation that we seem to have

Honest answers.
Piercing insight
Candid confessions.

Impulsive words,
Innocuous? Not likely.
Hidden motives,
Real Illusions.
Illusive reality.

An uncalculated.. unreserved moment.
Alive. This moment. Us.

Is It Worth The Trouble?

Candid confessions!
A miscalculated risk-
My impulsive honesty

Dreams-What we would do without them?

I once dreamt of all possible things.

With open eyes, I once dreamt

Of all possible things. I once dreamt!

song of the bleeding heart

A ruby red throne,
Encrusted in ice,
For centuries seemingly
Lay hidden.
Deep deep in the heart of the sea
Glittered through the night,
Glowed in the light
A ruby red throne!

A Precious little gift.
Scorned with indifference,
The ice thawed
And the throne melted.
And left behind,
A chimera of liquid crimson skies
A lost saga that the waves sing
If you listen carefully,
When the sun meets the earth,
You can still hear,
The song of the bleeding heart

Valentine's Day

Vague yearnings
Arrive at my doorstep
Love seems to knock my door
Elfish dreams and
Nascent feelings raise their heads
Time to rejoice again
In the wide open sky of my heart
New beginnings

Spring in my winter

Dawn cloaked in the golden glow
Awaits me
Yet again. Its no longer dark!

Rain drops

Raging emotions
Accost my senses
Inundated me;
Numbly awaits

Drench me to my very soul
Regrets choke my mind
Overwrought! I need respite
Purge me of this pain
Show me the way, oh

P.S: I have tried something new here. do notice that I have used the word at the end of the stanza :)

Rabble rousers

Oh rabble rousers,
Arouse my soul
From this unbidden sleep.
Long forgotten consciousness
Needs a rude awakening
It seems lost
Since eternity.

Oh rabble rousers,
Break the walls,
The unwanted fences,
Cemented with fear
Rearrange my torrid emotions!
It lies in disarray,
Since eternity.

Oh rabble rousers,
While you are at it,
Can you please,
Find my voice
Make it heard above the noise.
Validate my existence
It lies in wait
Since eternity.

A heave of breath,
Slowly rising and falling,
A mind numbing, blood curdling,
Breast thumping cry....

This night will never end,

Like squirrel we scamper,
Trying to find cover. We fail. As always!

Our bodies,
A live canvas,
Red. Blue.
Enmeshed with
Streaks of brown and black.

Visually alive.
Spiritually dead.

A leaf rustled somewhere,
The spell broken,
Lovers parted;
The kiss left,

Not to go

The branches of the trees,
Wrap themselves around you,
Begging, not to go

The song birds,
sing in tandem,
Imploring, not to go

The passing wind,
Whisper into your ears,
pleading, not to go

The clouds in vain,
Urging, not to go

Ah the sky,
bends over
Willing you to stop to not go!

The wafting fragrance,
The drooping flowers,
The setting sun
And the rising moon

They all express
What my silent heart couldnt
Why don't you heed to the plea in my eyes?
The unexpressed need in my sighs..

Screaming.. not to go...

Prompted at : totally optional prompts

P.S: I tried to combine two of the prompts.. for repetition and Aubade ( Aubade is a poem that asks someone to stay to not go away..)

P.P.S: I have kept it as simple as possible. I guess something as poignant as this needs no metaphor.. no symbols :)

Wind? Love?

Two flowers sneak closer,
Slowly they touch,
A moment together,

Lifetime apart

Wind the hero,and the villain

The Blogsphere

I got to thank pratsie.. for posting the acrostic poem.. which inspired me to try it :) Offlate I have been feeling very uninspired.. hopefully my muse shall come back to me...

Ah here is my first acrostic poem.. as a prompt from Acrostic Poetry only

Hold my

Overfilled with
Hitherto they were
Reflections. And now,
Encaptured for eternity!


Ah what else can I say.. finally I have reached 200 posts on this blog.. Its little hard to digest that 6 months before I celebrated 125 posts.. its an understatement to say that past 6 months have been the most productive! yes they have been :)

I am also humbled that this blog has 15 followers. Thank you so much guys!

Since past 2-3 months due to internet troubles.. shifting houses and loss of blog roll has made it impossible for me to visit many of you.. and yet you guys have been there for me.. commenting and encouraging me..

Thank you so!

It would have been apt that I write a poem celebrating this milestone.. and yet.. my muse seem to have decided to go on a vacation.. I guess she is a lot overworked offlate and deserves it.. lets just hope that she comes back...

In the meantime a meager offering....

Few words fused together
In an unknown meter,
Few thoughts sung,
In a wayward tune
Ah the song of my life
Of joys, love and strife

Despair not!

I have been really really very very uninspired lately.. as you can see from the quality of poems I have posted earlier.. and hence I have taken a leave from posting.. however.. just yesterday when I was going through Karthik's blog.. I saw this simple verse that i wrote in response to his poem.. 

Am pasting the poem here ..

Despair not ,
Oh child of god,
For darkness belies
the face of lord

If shadows cast
Darker than the night
How can you suspect
The presence of light ?

Trudge along steadfast
This too shall pass
For a magical dawn
Awaits your victory horn

P.P.S: *sigh*


Shifting shadows in the twilight
Dance in tandem,
Resonating with the thoughts
That twirl in my mind

A swirl of excitement
Few whispered memories
With a curl of the lips

Ah that secretive smile!

Lingering sunlight,
Of golden promises of the dawn
Unknown yearnings beckon

my conscious being
Entrancing silently
Dreams sneak in
