From the Author


I have often read that silence is considered golden, and that most times, it is better to keep your silence than utter the spoken word. So writing, to me was a great alternative to channeling that which for various reasons is never said aloud in words. Words, which sometimes in their simplistic ways mean what they say, and sometimes mean even more than that, when they make you feel the things, you too never said.


So as the silent words fall from the skies of my imagination and those that rise from the deepest abysses that exist in my mind, I catch them like raindrops in a cup and put them on paper to make some sense of a situation, feeling, or a random emotion….sometimes its raw and visible, and sometimes subtly wrapped in layers.  Words, that randomly meet in a dance of life, sometimes forming an image, a story, or just stirring an emotion in the heart.


Some thoughts, some words, some memories, some moments, some dreams, some fiction, inspired by the elements of nature, the people who came and those that went away, some remembered, none forgotten,  a few bits of my journey over some years.

Hope you enjoy this compilation under the theme ‘love still exists’.

and love is...


falling into an abyss

together,

holding hands,

smiling

at each other

knowing

of the uncertain end,


but still smiling

still holding

each other's eyes

and in that moment

everything

is stationary

still

peaceful

real

meaningful

soulful

eternal,


till eternity.

you burn me
like a
thirsting leaf,

exposed to
the relentless
summer sun,

light me up
like a piece of
stubborn iron,

smelting
in a heartless
furnace flame,


ignite me
to combustion
with a single touch,

like a lit match
on innocent

fossil fuel,

you are my fear
you are my love,

you are fire
I am earth,

you desire to burn
and I, to be burnt.

drop
by drop,
I sip,
the
elixir
of life,


red
mixes
with
red,
tense
senses
numbed,
as
one
meets
the
other,


and,
somewhere
far
away,
rain
drops
fall,
onto
the
restless
ocean,


seamless
connections
occur,
as
common
essences
merge,


and,
drop
by drop
slowly,
everywhere,
a peaceful
calm
returns.

t h e d a n c e


teach me
how to
dance
the way
that you
do,


I
will
pretend
not to
know
the steps,


for as
long as
I can
make you
let me
hold you.
