Softly it swirls
Each blow and twirls
And gives a thrill!

Bleaching heat of the sun
Reassures to quench one
Everybody joins the fun
Easy on everyone
Zooming air up and and down
Enjoyed by my loved ones.

Quench this Wanderlust

Quench this wanderlust of heart
It has suffered silently
Forlorn, morose is its ally
Wanting outburst
The wound so deep
Imprisoned by its vulnerability
Tears well like river
Swallowed into the quagmire of hopelessness
Let the passion that binds it
Ferocious as fire
Be benignly divorced from it.

A Gift from Shraddha...this New Template...:)

I am speechless...I dunno what to say...I am just so thankful, with this new template I have now, compliments of Shraddha of The Self-Love Project, a wonderful gift from her ...and it's the same feelings I felt when Preetilata Sarkar made a new template for me, four months ago...the blue one...:)

Jim commented on my Wanderlust Post if Shraddha and I am on a template-making business, that I could only smile...of course not, Jim! Shraddha I guess, fell in love with me, ..*wink, wink*, and so this is her labor of love...:)

Shraddha, my dear, what can I say? How can I repay you? I just wish to be a nanny of your twins so we can be ever closer then...:P....I will forever be indebted to you...:)


From the bottom of my heartfelt thanks for this new template...:)

In times of despair
There is a God
Who would console us

In times of disappointments
There is a God
Who would encourage us

In times of heartaches
There is a God
Who would cheer us up

In times of trials
There is a God
Who would strengthen us

In times of sorrows
There is a God
Who would fortify us

In times of sickness
There is a God
Who would heal us

In times of distress
There is a God
Who would comfort us

In times of poverty
There is God
Who would provide us.

In times of hopelessness
There is a God
Who would show us the way

Lord, my God, to you I offer and commit my all, my everything. Enlighten the wanderlust in my heart and soul. Grant me peace and serenity of heart. For I firmly believe that all the things that's happening in my life are working together for my own good.

Dialing would be easy
Instant access is breezy
Reaching contacts
Entails less task
Calling city services
Takes as easy as the rest
Over here over there
Right here right there
Year in year out!

P.S. I suddenly thought of writing this when beside my pillow rests a telephone directory where I placed my lapi while working in bed. But just too bad, I used the light of my cp just to be able to pen down these thoughts because of power outage. Can you imagine?

Having numerous uses
On men, animals, birds
Looks colorful and
Lovely as decorations during
Yuletide season in homes.

Provocative and gyrating acts
Obscene and expressive movements
Lithe body longing to
Entice her male audience

Dressed in skimpy attires
Always expecting crowd's cheers
Naughty is her response
Cajoling them to
Excite and touch her
Raising thunderous applause.

Christmas carols are played everywhere. Beulah felt so excited. Tomorrow she would be flying to the United States to meet her fiancé’. This is unexpected. It was a long distance love affair but thanks to the presence of internet, their love blossomed through constant communications.

How Armand felt that day? He’s on Cloud 9. At last, he found the true love of his life, his soul mate in the person of Beulah. She’s a sweet young lady, very caring and with a simple beauty. Intelligent and with humor, too!

Reckoning the time, in a couple of hours, they will be seeing each other personally. Both wondered how they would react, how they would accept the presence of each other.

In their prayers, both hoped that there would be no hindrance anymore to their love affair. Beulah can’t live without Armand and so Armand does. Since the time they’ve met, their day won’t be complete without placing a call to each other and would be sleepless if they can’t talk and bid goodnight first to each other.

Sounds corny you may say. Tick, tack, tick! Armand hurriedly went to the garage, ignited the engine of his car. He can’t afford to be late and let Beulah be waiting there for him for a long time.

The plane touched down at exactly 10 pm. That would be exactly two hours before Christmas Eve. This would be the best Christmas both will have in their entire life. In the almost endless conversations over the phone, they talked about spending their first Christmas together to be in each other’s arms. After a sumptuous meal over a candle lit dinner, they would be holding hands watching fire crackers invade the air. They would be kissing each other once the clock strikes twelve and Armand will be bringing out the engagement ring he bought the past week.

Marriage proposals have been expressed and Beulah was more than willing to tie the knot with Armand. For her, he is the man of his dreams, the man who could complete him.

Along the highway, snowflakes begin to fall.  Armand could only drive carefully; afraid any mishap might come his way. Beulah checked out of the immigration. Her heart started pounding so wildly. She tried to compose herself. Armand arrived in time, and started scouring for that lovely face of Beulah among the crowd of arriving passengers. Both easily recognized each other and they both felt feverish and blushing at the sight of each other. Feeling missive and homesick, they both ran to meet each other in a tight embrace, oblivious of the people around them.

Speechless at first but their eyes seem to speak a thousand longings. Armand took Beulah’s hand and boarded the car. Outside the airport, snow has thickened, and it seemed impossible for them to travel but they proceeded. A couple of kilometers away from Armand’s house, snow continued to envelop the surroundings including the car. Then a halt. It can no longer move an inch. They were trapped inside the car. Spent Christmas Eve together inside the car and till eternity.

Comes this time of year
Happiness joys it bring
Rich and poor young and old
In all parts of the world
Singing Christmas carols
Taking and giving gifts
Message of the bright star
A Messiah was born to
Save sinners you and me!

I know this

Languid heart
Of mine is
Vain of
Expressing how

You complete me coz'
Only you could
Understand me.

Junctions in Life

As we journey through life
We go through many junctions
Some are good, some are bad
Some challenging, some encouraging
Others disappointing and still others frightening

I wish a journey where the junction
That I will pass through
Would do me good instead of bad
Would challenge me and encourage me
Instead of disappoint and frighten me

May every journey gives us a junction
Where we learn to be good
Where we learn to share
Where we learn to love
And where we learn to realize
That life is not a bed of roses
Instead, these junctions
Will make us a better person.

P.S. These were instant thoughts while I was busy cooking at Cafe World and at the same time harvesting at Farmville. Mark Zukerberg, what have you done with facebookers? I am in a junction where it's givin' me an addiction to the detriment of so many important things in my life! Wish my addiction will wane in due time. For my own good....:)

Compassion to the
Homeless and poor

willing heart
Radiating kindness
In every opportunity to extend
Tremendous help
You're willing to give!

Behaving like all-knowing
And attempting to be better
Coaxing his unsolicited advice
Keeping the driver confused.

Shoving his fellow passengers
Exalting himself as the best
Attempting his acts could help
Telling everyone as helpless.

Don't you feel irritated?
Regretting, giving him a lift?
In this foolish creature
Villainous and so disgusting
Ever will I pick him
Ridiculous, I would be!

A continent of extremes
Fraught with hunger though
Rich in natural resources
Inimitable is its peoples' sufferings
Causing my heart
And soul to cry.

What A Beautiful Morning....

I woke up today
Said a prayer
Thanked God for this beautiful morning!

On my way to the office
I saw smiling faces
Maybe they're thankful, too
For the great weather today.

As I sat on my table
Inside my office
I looked out the window
And saw the swaying of leaves.

I let my eyes roam
And saw giant trees around me
I heard the birds chriping
And hopping from branch to branch.

What a wonderful world
God has given us
The chirping birds are music to my ears
The green foliage refreshes my tired eyes.

Thank you Lord
for this great morning
Thank you Lord
for this new day of my life.

Spider Webs

God's unique creatures
One could only wonder am sure
Researchers made a quest
How intricate they make their nests.

They fire stringy silk
From the center spigot on their backs
And start shooting out the glue
From two side spigots, too!

They coat the dry silk of their webs
With a moist glue to detain flies
Which will later on become
Their food eaten like a gum.

You wonder how they don't get moist
On their own stuffy foulard joist
They just simply tiptoe around the glue
Which they deposit spheroidal globs.

Once done working on their web
They stay at the center of their net
And start waiting for their prey to be trapped
In their glue-coated spiral wrap.

Scheming to kill
Hoping it's bull's eye
On a nervous breath
Trigger's his gun

Indocile he maybe
Natty is his act

Took another attempt
He succeeded this time
Easily he did

Down went his opponent
Aspiring to fight back
Reckoning his move though
Knowing he'll lose.

Offensive is its smell
Usually found at the backyard
Taken as a refuge
Hoping to give ease
On impoverished users
Uncomfortable it may be
Sluttish and unmaintained
Exceptional how it looks.

Loitering streets
Amidst inclement weather
Despondent and
Yearning for kindness.

Wretched opponent with
Recondite tactics
Exuding precision
Saturating strength
To gain an edge
Little did spectators know
Ignorant of the truth
Not all actions real
Gosh! it's scripted!

In a pirouette
Comes her
Elegant movement

Swaying and
Kicking in
A fast and slow rhythm
Taking one
In awe with such
Nimble execution in
Genteel attire.

It Does Hurt

Eyes closed
But sleep is elusive
The mind keeps drifting
Back and forth
To sad thoughts
Hurt feelings
Ruined emotions
Disappointed expectations
And lost dreams.

Why does love hurts?
Does it really have to be this way?
It comes and you thought
It's the best
But it isn't
It comes, but only to hurt you
To realize later that
You were just a fool
And sooner or later
You will fall out of love
Against your will?

Because of narcissistic behavior...
Because of egocentric personality....
Because of selfish motives....
Because of failed expectations....

This is a nightmare
I'd rather wake up now
Because I am not a doormat!!!
