A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



If a cell is a unit of memory
Surrounded by matter…
I must be a memory map
Insensate and eternal!

If a cell, then, dies
Does that part of me
Get lost forever?

Are you and your
In me




Dear Me!

For, do I lose..

In that Carcinoma
When you overwhelm?

Or find myself
Fairly inundated
As you seep into
Every nook and
Cranny of my

Tell me
Dear One,

How will I ever
Cure myself

Of you?

Just posted this last night on the Ah Poetry comm., after an AGE, on Orkut, and so I had to share it here, as I usually do 🙂

Read this one? For you especially, Dhiren 🙂




Impossible… is nothing!

A 55 er. Thanks for the inspiration, Solilo 🙂



Come, his eyes begged.

Stay, her pliant soul searchingly reached out.

Fingers entwined, feet shuffling, slowly, heart thudding; slowly their fingers moved, apart, fingertips lingering, the invisible strings of love straining between…

The bus arrived. She stood, watching, a hollow curved within, in gut wrenching pain.

He left. She stayed.

And, impossibly, their love grew.

Post Script:

This is what a 55 er is; information from Solilo’s post 🙂

A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:

  • Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
  • A setting,
  • One or more characters,
  • Some conflict, and
  • A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)

Do try your own. I found it like a haiku in prose. Darned difficult, I tell you 🙂 So I shall excuse you if you deem this to be as silly as I think it is 🙂 🙂 With a cliche of a heading to boot. Lol!
But… and this is the most important thing… read closely…:)

I had FUN!

He came with the dawn,
Early morning mist-
A hazy form:
vague nothingness,
slowly taking shape!

My long night was
nearing light-
I knew, the sun
was just behind him.

Trapped in my darkness
I could do nothing,
but wait…
Endlessly, it seemed.

I wondered.
Did he know?
Was that why he came?

And I waited.

why, suddenly, the steps
seemed unsure

And the mist grew thick!

Still trapped in
my darkness
I knew
I would have to burn-
so that he could see light,
and part the mist again.

Only, I hope, he will forgive me
for being formless,
when he finally gets here.

Dreamer, Visionary? :) :)

Read about this first, here, on IHM’s blog, about being an introvert or extrovert. Was rather enchanted by the thought of it all 🙂 And now I know why… Lol. Being a dreamer, visionary, as the test taken then reveals.

So here it is, the INFP me. The Dreamer, says the tag 🙂 I’m rather inclined to agree with most of the things listed here, along with the brief on the persona 🙂

INFP – The “Dreamer” Jungian Personality Types (Free Test)

INFPs are introspective, private, creative and highly idealistic individuals that have a constant desire to be on a meaningful path. They are driven by their values and seek peace. Empathetic and compassionate, they want to help others and humanity as a whole. INFPs are imaginative, artistic and often have a talent for language and writing. They can also be described as easygoing, selfless, guarded, adaptable, patient and loyal.

About the INFP
Expert Quotes

“INFPs are highly intuitive about people. They rely heavily on their intuitions to guide them, and use their discoveries to constantly search for value in life. They are on a continuous mission to find the truth and meaning underlying things. Every encounter and every piece of knowledge gained gets sifted through the INFP’s value system, and is evaluated to see if it has any potential to help the INFP define or refine their own path in life.”

Portrait of an INFP (The Personality Page)

“creative, smart, idealist, loner, attracted to sad things, disorganized, avoidant, can be overwhelmed by unpleasant feelings…”

INFP Jung Type Descriptions (similarminds.com)

“An INFP’s feelings form the foundations of the individual. They are sacred and binding, in the sense that their emergence requires no further justification. An INFP’s feelings are often guarded, kept safe from attack and ridicule. Only a few, close confidants are permitted entrance into this domain.”

INFP Profile (INFP Mailing List)

“Highly creative, artistic and spiritual, they can produce wonderful works of art, music and literature. INFPs are natural artists. They will find great satisfaction if they encourage and develop their artistic abilities. That doesn’t mean that an INFP has to be a famous writer or painter in order to be content. Simply the act of “creating” will be a fulfilling source of renewal and refreshment to the INFP. An INFP should allow himself or herself some artistic outlet, because it will add enrichment and positive energy to their life.”

INFP Personal Growth (The Personality Page)

“Their job must be fun, although not racous, and it must be meaningful to them. They need a strong purpose in their work. They want to be recognized and valued, without undue attention given to them. They may become embarrassed when make the center of attention. As a result, they may undersell their strengths in order to avoid being singled out and made to feel conspicuous. They would rather have their worth be noticed gradually over time.”
INFP – The Dreamer (Lifexplore)

It was a revelation 🙂 And I shall let it rest at that. With practically everyone having done it so far, I guess I wanted to catch up too… so I pulled out the draft and decided to air it:)
