Nights never overwhelmed me as much, as it is now..

Nights began its whisper

windchimes rhythmically

bringing in music to life

the night enchants everything around

for a moment I pause

the breeze sweeping my thoughts away

as if it is making love to me

tingling my feet, bringing a smile on me

the moon playing hide and seek with the clouds

as I hide with the curtains swinging with the breeze

the light falls on my skin

brightening every pores on mine

dawn never excited me as much

as you do, my nights…

I could be awake and feel the warmth of the night

and the coldness of the breeze that tantalizes my mind

nights never became so overwhelming to me ever…

since it reminds me of

loved ones …



This is how Sudha Murthy saved me

Every night is a story challenge for me… At times, even though i recollect pretty lot many stories, I keep forgetting them, at the time I really need them in my brain.

I guess i need to patch up with my memory soon, it just remembers the unwanted ones.

My little darlings need a story every night, Thanks to my mom, who at times saves me from this hurdle.

But, yes still I need a saviour at times. As my elder one who recently turned 9, is slowly getting an interest in reading, she is fond of reading all the small tales like Panchatantra ( which was almost getting dusted for past two years here) and the rest. I am in a searching spree to find new stories ..

And here I found my saviour…

Sudha Murthy

Her wonderful collections are quite engaging and Its so easy to keep in my mind, that I started reading more of her books, to recite a few to my kids. I am not an ‘avid reader’ – but an ‘excuse-reader’, hence it is tough for me to glue to books, yet I manage to read a few.

I wish, by the time age conquers me, I shall be well-read as I call it.

So, parents, who want to tell stories at nights at bedtime,  I would suggest Sudha Murthy’s collections.

Even I am interested to know, what all you read to your kids, Do suggest and help me explore more.


Constraining my thoughts

I just plug in my ears with my headphone,

lost in my own world between my ear lobes.

Making me feel wonderful,

as the beats of the music circle in my own head,

hitting every wall of my brain.

I could sense the flow of my thoughts

to and fro inside my space, where I weave

most of my writings ..

at times some try to break away into the air

I hold them tight enough, not to let them go out..

beholding them, within me…

not knowing that one day, it will burst away

into the atmosphere, probably maligning my own space

or even enlightening others…

All I know is, I own them

As I constrain them…



Dreams – Yours or mine ?

Dreams became my companion

from the time I realised what dream was,

Never it occurred to me,

that they never left by my side

as it never turned to reality

like the death aches away from the life

it remained in me until I drift away once

I walked miles, yet never to fulfil my dreams

but yours…




Help Me Out, my Followers

Challenging myself at times seems fun to me. The more I challenge myself, I feel like going about it. This time, whenever I open my social media accounts, All I see is # 100dayschallene, #30dayschallenge etc. .. looks fun to me and wanted to explore the same.

Being aspiring to be a better writer every day,  I use Yourquote app, Mirakee app etc, that gives enough prompts to satisfy my writing skills. It is all the more exciting to take up such challenges that nurture my skill.

But , I am in a dilemma, what to take up and how to go about it?

It is all the more demanding to take up 365 days challenge – I kept thinking should I go for a #30days, or even #100days – But whatever I take p, deciding on what to write on is a greater challenge….

So here I come up with a question, I hope my fellow bloggers will help me get over with this confusions..

Suggest me is it worth going for it .

What should I be writing on ?

or like what you prefer to read from me ?

Hope to get some answers on the same..

I know many are lazy to prompt answers to such requests, but I request wholeheartedly to help me here.
