A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



In daily consciousness
Is oblivion-
Memories to negate.
For, what lies in sight
And impinges upon the ear
Oft, are we blind and deaf to.

In forgotten realms
Abutting that consciousness-
Is that where you place me?
Hovering on the fringe
Of your knowing?

Of course, not consciously.
But in off hand negligence
Living the taken-for-granted

I desist, though. And will
Willing myself 
To hammer against that wall
(Clear as glass and just as hard)
Of accidental denial.

Waiting for the pane
To shatter.
So that I can
Yet again, redeem you.13 December, 2011

  1. How true is that!”I desist, though. And willResist. Willing myself To hammer against that wall(Clear as glass and just as hard)Of accidental denial.”Good for you. 🙂 I usually wither and fade. 🙂


  2. Oh and I forgot! The audio was awesome. I missed it the first time and then remembered the FB update. So came back. Usha, I feel I was sitting in your class!


  3. Shail :D, you, wither and fade? I refuse to believe that 🙂 :)You're solid and inspirational, and beautiful (I read part of the In the Looking Glass… need to complete it 🙂 )!!And thank you for the kind words for the audio 😀 In my class, eh? Now I understand “awesome”.. :P! Thanks a ton! You redeem this ramble 🙂


  4. Is this a plan for an attempt,to negate the familiarity caused contempt?If so you shouldn't voice them and temptthe adversary and make him ready for a preempt.Took the bait. Your diction gives me a complex.


  5. Govind, am happy you took the bait. And happier still with the word you used. Diction. The first time I had to do the “announcement” for a function at school, here, when I had just joined, one of the distinguished members on the dais, a Mr. S. Ramakrishnan (of the Bhavan's), came to me at the end of the meeting and very graciously said that I had good diction. That thrill is revisited today. Thank you! Though, of course, it is tough being a fiendishly almost “correct” speaker of English, hereabouts, these days 😀 😀 Sometimes, I'm the one with a complex 🙂
