A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



When you would have me
Still, and restful, and serene
I cannot help but shift, drum fingers
And move to a rhythm in my head.

When you ask that I simply exist
Unleavened, and therefore, unpounded
How – How, I ask, can I be that
Which I can’t. Ever.

You may have left that fizz aside.
But boy, have I got enough, within!
That niggles, and nudges, and
Slowly, then steadily, and rapidly
Bubbles forth.

You wanted a model;
Perhaps a mendicant, of the soul;
That you could, then mould.
But- May I, myself, form into the
Shapes of my dreams?

Mould into them,
Lest I mold.

Online. In anticipation, of cross-currents, and cross-wiring.
Sigh. I know. I’m in need of some rest 😛

  1. and such is marriage


  2. I feel the same at times , this pull to mold and yet the push to hold.
    Lovely lines .. there is a certain free spirit in this.


  3. But- May I, myself, form into the
    Shapes of my dreams?
    Mould into them,
    Lest I mold.
    You echoed my thoughts here… 🙂 As long as we don’t try to model the other person based on your dreams , it is Ok. But it is so hard not to do it with your Kids,, 😛


  4. With you there is something amiss
    that you can manage to miss
    to hear the sound of my inner hiss
    for I don’t consider it a bliss
    to live life like this
    that of a mime doll with a permiss.

    Liked it immensely.
    I think you shouldn’t be cross wired but instead be wired for sound ( Cliff Richards) 🙂


    • With me there is much amiss
      For all I hear is that inner hiss
      But, in ignorance there is bliss
      And with awesome comments such as this 🙂

      Govind. Thank you 🙂
      Cliff Richards too. Sigh. 🙂
