Boots.

  She trudged along the gravelled path, Far from home, lost in the rush of the world, Her boots worn, her back stooped, The winds, cold and brazen, cut across, The skin on her face drooped.   Her eyes stung with tears, That refused to fall out, She shut them close, Wanting to push theContinue reading “Boots.”

#Swarun Again!

To the long evening talks, to the short Ajmera walks, to the values you taught, and throwing away foods that rot.   To being a bride, those bumpy auto rides, to the faces you made, and the cakes we smeared.

Happy anniversary, indeed!

The last piece of cake was smeared on his face! “Twenty years of marriage! What’s the secret?” asked a colleague in jest! “You agree more than you disagree. And you learn to shut up!” Sameer¬†replied at once. “At least there’s someone who can shut Sameer up,” they joked! Only they didn’t know it was aContinue reading “Happy anniversary, indeed!”

His Smile, For Her.

HIS SMILE, FOR HER. The day she saw him, She knew that smile was for her, The warmth that touched their hearts, Brought them closer together. Those eyes that glittered her way, Could see her inside out, His hand that touched hers, Touched the soul within. Hands clasped, rushing Through the surreality, Like two littleContinue reading “His Smile, For Her.”
