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…

Gravity of Love

The sun shines shyly,and the sky blushes in red and orange hues.The rain ceases to tease them both,and the clouds gather to tie the knot.As the Sun finally droops into the sky,with a rosy blush he whispers close to it,asking for the eternity he longed,and the sky nods in a yes.The wind blows and the…

Ambience of loneliness

Beside these busy streets with robust crowd, I am here sitting under this lonely tree- dwelling about something; searching for faces in those dark coppery clouds, as the sun joins the horizon, and the moon kisses goodbye to its disguise. Here these winds bring me the swampness of soil, as the earthy smell of the…

Inevitable Truths

The heart desires remorselessly and the mind suffers- bearing the weight of all the consequences and fretting over the tiniest of things. It’s in these moments you begin to question everything you ever stood for, when your principles are challenged by none other than your own self. What are you supposed to do when the…

Seven Moons

There was a time, I considered myself privileged on this Earth, because in contrast to her single moon, I had seven. Her powerless moon forced a reputation all by the charm of Mother Nature, while mine were the cause of my shine. I had never desired anything better- neither did I have any big wishes,…

അതിര്..ആകാശം..ഭൂമി!

അവര്‍ തീമഴ പെയ്യുന്ന ഭൂപടങ്ങളില്‍ മുറിവേറ്റ നാടിൻ്റെ വിലാപങ്ങളെ ചുവന്ന വരയിട്ട് അടയാളപ്പെടുത്തും. വീട്ടിലേക്ക് ഒരു റോക്കറ്റ് വന്ന വഴി കൂട്ടുകാരിയുടെ കുഴിമാടത്തിലേക്കു നീട്ടിവരയ്ക്കുന്നു. ഒച്ചയ്യില്ലാതെ വരയ്ക്കുന്ന നിലവിളികളെ കണ്ണീരിലിട്ടു വെക്കുന്നു. പൂക്കളെക്കുറിച്ചുള്ള ഒന്നാം പാഠം മറക്കുന്നു. പൂമ്പാറ്റകളുടെ കരിഞ്ഞ ചിറകുകളും ഉടഞ്ഞ മഴവില്ലുകളും ഉമ്മകള്‍ വറ്റിയ കവിളില്‍ തെളിയുന്നു. അവര്‍ കറുത്ത ആകാശങ്ങളെ കിളികളില്ലാതെ വരയ്ക്കുന്നു. വിരല്‍ത്തുമ്പില്‍ നൊമ്പരങ്ങള്‍ മുറിഞ്ഞൊഴുകുന്നു. പടനിലങ്ങളില്‍ നിന്നൊരു പാഠവും പഠിപ്പിക്കാനില്ലാത്ത പള്ളിക്കൂടങ്ങളിലിപ്പോഴും കുത്തഴിഞ്ഞ പുസ്തകങ്ങള്‍ കൂട്ടിത്തുന്നുന്ന കുഞ്ഞിക്കൈകളില്‍ വിശപ്പിൻ്റെ രേഖാചിത്രം…

Astrophe

It’s hard not to look at the ground as you walk. To set your sights low, and keep the world spinning, and try to stay grounded wherever you are. But every so often you remember to look up, and imagine the possibilities. Dreaming of what’s out there. Before long, you find yourself grounded once again….

The Moon

The Moon is melting down, giving the stars her crown. The blanket of sleepy sky, is receiving heaven’s blessings, above high. They are not mere stars, they are the twinkling dreams that the Almighty scatters. The Moon is melting down, pouring her silver shine in my somnolent town. She is eluding and dwindling away, with…

The Escape Plan

The sky kept changing its colors, indecisive of what shade it was going to display- akin to his varying feelings, for he couldn’t quite determine what to do. His carefully composed equanimity was slipping, troubling his handsome face. He was barely holding on to his conscience. He kept finding himself lost in a trance. It…

Nature’s Whisper

Again the white whisper flew down the mountains, tiptoed across the riverbanks, removing the clouds’ curtains. “Look at the waving branches”, chanted the magic spell, opened their alluring arms, echoed with the church bell. Again I wore hypnotics, and surrendered my burdens to the sky, felt the pearl droplets on my blurry eyes that looked…

Modern Leprosy

My modern leprosy is being alone, as layer after layer peels away leaving me exposed. My skin is gone, my flesh is gone, I’m down to my bones. The darkened skies hear my whispers, destruction is my home. The sounds echo through the distraught lands, as I surrender everything my hands hold. No one told…

Miles Away!

I soared high and above, towards the night sky, it felt so calm and serene, away from the noise. I mingled with owl hoots, and flittermouse echoes bathing in the silver moonlight, and playful winking of that innocent shining star. I mingled with the cold, fresh and clean air, my lungs heaved a sigh of…

Moments

Sometimes I space out- all the voices around me turn to misapprehended languages trying to invade the bubble I form around me, but the bubble turns glass thick, and the voices walk away. And in moments like these, I really see what I never knew I was looking for. I see that friend who tries…

Falling Stars

The stars are falling like arrows shot by Cupid, hitting the wishers as they think, each one lets out a scream. And the sky has dimmed to black. Don’t look up, it’s a hopeless sight. But on the ground there are starlights, lighting a way through the pain. Sometimes the solution isn’t up in the…
