I used to believe
and others laughed
at my views. And
now, they talk about
what for some of
us is old news.
Funny, isn’t it?
Sometimes the smallest
of things can simply and
completely make your day!
I woke up to sweet sunlight,
a chattering flutter of sparrows, two hungry dogs, and finally a hot coffee! I look forward to this last day of long 🇨🇦 weekend and anticipate the arrival of my family and friends. I am grateful for this beautiful, warm summer day filled with sunshine!
My heart is
opening to me.
My heart is
starting to see.
My heart is
letting it be.
My heart is
I think quarantine has shined a huge light on the fact that I am lacking friendship in my life. I don’t understand why it’s so seemingly impossible for me to create lasting friendships as an adult. I have given my all and have tried over and over again, just to be letdown. I’m hoping that someday that void will be filled.
Dewdrops on the
lawn are glistening
The sparrows fly by
on summer breezes!
Bellflowers of blue
are in bloom listening
to the cheery sparrow
chorus that teases us!
I have had my heart
ripped out of my chest
a few disastrous times.
It took all I had to put
myself back together.
Now I see the role I
played in my demise,
and I’m relieved that
I fared the weather.
It’s interesting what
you see when you look
through a different lens.
I’m conscious of this now;
as on it my life depends.
Rose no more
As gentle a rose sweet floral smell of the flower water drips slowly drop by drop as the sun brings life to a living plant, white like the color of innocence attractive to the bee's comfort to the soul as the person grieved in and around the casket of the deceased. Perfumed to cover the aroma of the embalming fluid like Frankincense and the anointing of the body like myrrh.

Best friends to lovers
Lovers turned into husband and wife
Perfect status updates highlight our happiness
I can’t help but wonder if they all know how deep your love for me truly runs
Deeper than the black and white photos
Past the endless display of sumptuous food
Down deep through the darkest parts of my being
You loved me, even when I tasted like depression and heartache
For that, I will walk through the fire
Because I know we burn brighter together
Missing Mumbai more than ever! The city sets your soul free! The city that makes you feel home! The days are as busy as the nights are quiet! Life here is fast, always running to catch a train, and even a fourth seat makes it worth it! There isn't a problem that won't sort itself out while you enjoy the view at Marines! The ice gola by the beach, with khatti kairi, and a park full of couples! From khaugalli to 7 star hotels, variety of options to choose from, yet the evening tea and vada pav with a bunch of friends makes the heart content! The city doesn't sleep, dance your night away, or watch the waves crash, and ofcourse long drives at night followed by idli at 4am! The city where dreams a...

Ay querido mundo de las letras, que muchos días han pasado sin escribirte como páginas en blanco. La vida es un libro, y en muchas ocasiones no somos los autores de dichas páginas e historias. Es la realidad. No controlamos nuestra vida, ni tan siquiera un día. Y es así cuando a veces se nos escapan hasta los pensamientos. Pero, es solo una parte de ella. No es toda la realidad ni la alcanza.
No te preocupes. Yo estoy bien y pronto te contaré. Te compartiré estractos de mi libro, aquellos que puedo escribir y el corazón me dicta. Pronto me pondré en sintonía directa y a pura conciencia con el papel, la tinta, el espacio, la sensibilidad, el corazón y aquellos que con aquello compartan sus hi...
You have to kindle
The fire that you started
Or she'll dwindle, die.

I found dew of hope
Dripping from daisies I so
Lovingly tend to.

When they cannot speak
Be the voice of a voiceless
Show the world their worth.

You make today better
As I meander
Down the red carpet of life
I'm lucky to know
That you'll always wait for me
Arms open, my biggest fan.

Fresh amaryllis out of season is the passerby’s fortune
An ounce of cure for the equanimity with which he navigates
It’s funny we get used to
feeling bad, but we also get
used to feeling good. We
should try it sometimes!
