Sparks

There is a spark in each and everyone, it’s buried deep inside them waiting for a trigger, something worth burning for, a hope strong enough to turn that spark into a sky full of fireworks, and I’m here to tell you, please don’t stop chasing what lights you up, there is more…. The End Just…

Nightlight- Illenium

‘Nightlight’ is an enchanting single by the renowned American DJ and music producer, Nicholas D. Miller, who we all know as Illenium. Co-written by Annika Wells, and with Annika Wells also lending her spellbinding voice, the song was released in August 2020. This is Illenium’s first song released in 2020, after a break, since he…

Degrassé

Entranced and unsettled by the vastness of the universe, experienced in a jolt of recognition that the night sky is not just a wallpaper but a deeply foreign ocean whose currents are steadily carrying off all other castaways, who share our predicament but are already well out of earshot—worlds and stars who would’ve been lost…

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

A couple of years ago I came across one of my favourite poems- ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’, by Dylan Thomas. The poem goes- Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise…

Science Made Simple 2- Ammu & Kanha’s Crown

The long-awaited vacations had begun. But Seema knew she wouldn’t have rest or find free time- mending her three naughty kids by itself would take a lot of time. “Mom…Mom…”, Seema could feel the impatience in Ammu’s voice. “Mom, see our Kanha wearing the peacock feather….come, come. See what we have done.” “From where did…

A Lantern in Her Hand

I think that love is more like a light that you carry. At first childish happiness keeps it lighted and after that romance. Then motherhood lights it and then duty . . . and maybe after that sorrow. You wouldn’t think that sorrow could be a light, would you, dearie? But it can. And then…

Firsts!

Firsts are precious; firsts never leave us. Even if we have our seconds or thousands, no matter good or bad, firsts are our true companions. Holding flash lights in the darkness, giving us dark at wind down to rest, they are pillars to lean on, when our knees feel weak, hold us when elated. They…

Advent

After every bad day, there comes a good one too. After every rain, there’s a rainbow too. After every hardship, there comes ease too. After every sorrow, there comes delight too. After every darkness, there comes light too. So don’t you give up, for the worst shall pass too! Wanna be a wordmate? Connect with…

Soul Mate Forever?

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the…

Invisible String

Why do you stop, when you want to reach the top? Are you scared because there is no light? But you have to move, even if nothing seems right. Yes, you want to win, but realize life’s failure is a thing. You think there is a lot at stake, but what new can the world…

My Life

My life is like a night sky, full of brilliant stars. Below, everything is shadow, but above, light shines- something beautiful, a gleam that will never end. I know, it is through the darkness that I see the light. Even though I can’t see in front of me, I look up, and the light lasts….

The Door

Last year was like a sliver of light under a door; brightening a dark room in which it only stormed, a sliver of hope that this hurt would end. But this year- the door opened to let the light in. I can already see the light swallowing me whole, Oh what this year has in…

അക്ഷരങ്ങൾ

ചില കാര്യങ്ങൾ അല്ലെങ്കിലും അങ്ങനെയാണ്. മനസ്സിൽ കിടന്നിങ്ങനെ പതിയെ പതിയെ ചൂടുപിടിക്കും. പിന്നെ ചെറിയ നീർകുമിളകൾ ആയിട്ട് അവ മുകളിലോട്ടു ചലിക്കും. അത് കുറച്ച് നേരംകൂടി അതുപോലെ വച്ചാൽ തിളച്ചുമറിയും. അകത്തുള്ളതെല്ലാം വെന്തു പാകപ്പെട്ടു പുറത്തേക്കു വരാൻ പരുവത്തിനാവും. പിന്നെ അവയെ പുറത്തോട്ട് എടുത്ത് ആവശ്യക്കാർക്ക് കൊടുക്കുക എന്നത് നമ്മൾ വിചാരിച്ചാൽ മാത്രമേ നടക്കൂ. ഈ അക്ഷരങ്ങൾ ഇപ്പോൾ ഇവിടെ ജന്മമെടുക്കുന്നതും ആ ഒരു തോന്നൽ ഉണ്ടായതുകൊണ്ടു മാത്രം ആണ്. അക്ഷരങ്ങൾക്ക് പിന്നെ അച്ഛനും അമ്മയും എല്ലാം…
