Busiest temple India has loved

One cloudy afternoon I awaited a time to arrive Squatting on the edge of a pavement At one of the busiest temples India has loved. One of the busiest temples India has loved To seek relentlessly in times high and low To overpower with prayers and woe To submit offerings and in surrender bow To... Continue Reading →

Perplexity

Fire that for ages consumed every element in existence Every little thing flammable and every massive one not Sparing not one thing in the way no matter how essential Do tell, did you find the one that satisfied your hunger? Thriving through levels and levels of devastation Claiming every last bit of what the world... Continue Reading →

Little confessions

The little confessions out of the blue Where you’ve been all this while? Hidden under the scars I thought were all there was to life Or perhaps under that sturdy defensive aisle?

The moon is where the night finds her solace He alone seems to unconditionally love her company... Continue Reading →

Gods must be amused
