Sunrise awaits

In wilted fragrance
Nights are melting in her arms
Waiting for sunrise

Darkness Departed

Lonely stars splintered
And the darkness departed
Miracles do happen!

*My experiments with Life, Haiku, et al*

Found Profoundness

The squall of darkness
Was never heard

Locked inside
A room of blood

When the doors opened
Dreams set ajar

There was an empty canvas
to paint the clouds green

Living in constraints
Not any longer

Because there was a reason
Trapped in a season called
LIFETIME

Found profoundness
Galloping inspiration

Life changed forever
At last to find

Aspirations chasing
And the world dreaming

About me, love
While I was Living

A lifetime, A dream
In every little moment

Happyness

I am watching television
Suddenly something’s different

Tingles, like butterflies on my palm
His fingers ticking them,
with movements calm

I look at him, see his lovely smiles
This is happiness, will go for miles

Then suddenly I wonder
Deeply ponder

My poetry is always grumpy
Trying to overcome the sulky

Coz when I am happy
I am just super thrilled

Like the meadows
Unfolding the rainbows

Like beauty to the breath
And joy to the sight

Filled with words
Don’t know which one to write

Its not that I am sad
I just write when I am mad

Coz when I am happy
I am living each moment

Preserving the moods,
The Happyness quotient

Dated: Sept 7, 2014

My friend asked me why do I write sad poetry more often than I write happy ones – hopefully he knows now – this is why!
Would also want to mention that the words ‘Happyness’ comes from the movie ‘Pursuit of Happyness’. Simply loved the idea behind NOT spelling it right deliberately (:

Winter Climes

Small defeats
Regrets of lifetimes
Unlike mild breeze
Teasing the chimes
Standing alone waiting
In winter for sunnier climes
