A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



The tunnelled vision never
Expected such light.
I looked deep into
Your heart, not knowing…
I simply looked, for
I needed to.

On emotional crutches myself,
Laggardly, haphazardly
Perched on the edge of sanity
A hair’s breadth away from oblivion

I would have given in.
Had I not looked for you.
Had I not met you.
Had I not found me, in you.

There, deep within, shone brilliantly
A mosaic of a million lifetimes
A thousand tendernesses
A bounty of breathlessness
An intrinsic pattern of many

Shards of me and you
Imprinted upon the soul, recalled instantly!
Disparate, separate, a moment,
Changing to visions of ephemeral entwining


And when the world turns upside down
And the combinations change
I for one, am glad that the
Kaleidoscope I found in you
Still stays the same…

Bits of me, lots of you…

And…Always Us.

On an offchance here, formed from a prompt from Soumya Sinha’s poetry… reading from him and meeting a Kaleidoscope therein, triggered this one off! Thanks Soumya!

  1. Kaleidoscope I found in youStill stays the same…Bits of me, lots of you…And…Always Us.Signature you! Starts so strongly, 'tunneled vision'! wonderful use.An intrinsic pattern of many Shards of me and youImprinted upon the soul, recalled instantly! Love the almost academic use of imagery for the Kaleidoscope, personified as a life in between. If a Kaleidoscope ever had to have a pattern, or life, there it is – right infront of me.Loved.


  2. Soumya, thank you! Utterly enchanted by that word, which I came across in your poetry. This had to write itself, you see… no other go! So the credit is all yours, for the instigation by way of your verse!God Bless! Charmed and honoured by your note!


  3. Felt great reading this, as always with your poetry. Lovely poetry.


  4. From a tunneled tube containing bits of glass
    Emerges passionate poetry of topmost class
    Instant inspiration
    Needed respiration
    Bringing to Life emotions en masse!


Thank you for reading. Do stop a while and write in too... :)
