A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



In nods, in tiny smiles
In glances on off chances
And accidental brushes
With the finger tips
Or a swish of clothes
While moving by.

In sudden stealth
Of secretive looks
In gleams of warmth
Like embers coated in ash
That, with breaths of love
Glow, in anticipation.

Your whispered words
Of adoration. Are they
Just superfluous?

  1. Oh I loved this. The rendition made it come alive.


  2. From the moment love is seededthere's nothing that is not neededand for it to go unimpedednothing should go unheeded.Beautiful. Especially liked 'In gleams of warmthLike embers coated in ashThat, with breaths of loveGlow, in anticipation.'Conjured up a beautiful imagery.


  3. Shail, thank you!Govind, your notes always enliven the rambles here, much like those embers 🙂 Except that even that glow comes from your words! Thanks so much!
