A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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

A Full Circle!


The first time we met,
Didn’t seem that way!

A lifetime before,
But how does
The time elapsed
seem so little?

How we seemed
to just pick up
from where we
left off-

When Fate perhaps
dealt a heavy hand-
That we found difficult
to play!

And so, the Carousel
stops here, this lifetime-
And we meet – again.

Funny, isn’t it?
How life always
comes round-
A full circle!

Sort of connected mildly to the earlier post 🙂 Something that came as a sort of sequel, if you wish 🙂

  11. “Funny, isn’t it?How life alwayscomes round-A full circle!”Ushus, Some of your lines speak volumes about our life. This is one of those which I can also understand well. You know I am poetically challenged most of the time 😀 😀


  12. Solilo 🙂 Thanks :D! No, you aren’t poetically challenged at all 🙂 It’s all in the heart, actually 🙂


  13. Wonderful use of words… the poet is back !!! it seems… and dont you worry coz I am not stopping stalking you at all !!!! 😀 I can be busy not to post… but cant stay completely away !

  16. You always excel in the artof writing about matters of the heartwhile some pierces like a dartthe rest soothes like symphony of Mozart.


  17. You do surely excel in the artof writing about matters of the heeartwhile some of them pierce like a dartthe rest soothes like music from Mozart.


  18. Hi Usha,Nice words there.But if you end up where you started should it always be a circle? Why can’t life come a square or a triangle, eh?Cheers,Salil


  19. circles happen whenever we are tied to a central point…like pelted stones to sky we try to get ourselves free..but love pulls us back..and just keep on continuing our journey in endless circles..like lives of satellites..connected well.very very well written..


  20. Usha…..wish you were here to see the expression on my face..beautifully worded.Sometimes u r at a total loss of words…and this is one such moment…touches achord somewhere deep within..what can I say, except salute u lady for this lil masterpiece…..Yes,life is a full circle.


  21. PRG, thank you for that wonderful response in verse! Hats off to you for the way you do it so easily :)Salil, I am not too good with geometry, and well, most often therefore go around in circles. Maybe that would explain this circle too 🙂 Thanks for being here, with each new post :)MIP, what a connection you make, and what an image you draw with words there. Something you really excel at! Thank you for the resonance also!Poonam, now you make me blush with all those superlative words :)Awww! Thank you so very very much!
