A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



Dry, flaky, thin and long

So unassuming –

Quietly, it lay.

Knowing, with baffling certainty

Someday, one day

It would be chosen.

Today. It was.

Allowed to finally free itself

It long and drab form

Transferring, transforming

Fragrant in release.



Filling, fulfilling, its destiny.

It burns. Gladly.

You know that.

Because you sense it.

That joy.

In the fragrance of its soul,

That quietly permeates, often,

Into your own.

Undated (about a year ago, in 2012; discovered while hunting for something else, entirely 😀 )

A rambler, pretends to be a teacher, loves to dream, and go on Quixotic Quests in the Realm of Romance With Life...

  1. A perfect verse for this gloomy, wintry morning Usha Di. 🙂 I wish the clouds would let go of the obstacles they have placed for the sun. The loveliness would then be released. 🙂


  2. Something as every-day as agarbatti
    Finds, in her soul, a lil’ poetry
    Its smoky release
    Gives her peace
    Is this one version of Sense and Sensibility?!


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