A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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



The now is a story

Far away, out of reach

Of yester-eve.

You were there

In my arms

A smitten twosome

Like no other.

Arrogant, in love.

They say, don’t they, that

Pride does go before a fall.

So it was. We fell, when you did.

And what a fall is this!

A heartbeat’s pause.

A breath half drawn.

A blink of

Teardrop tipped lashes

That’s all it takes to become a memory.


Smitten we are.

Still. I know.

Reaching for the other

Still arrogant

Knowing, so certain,

When it’s time

We’ll find each other’s arms.

Today’s is free hand 😬😍
And this is Naina’s. A mandala fell from the sky, she says, and all the *critters* are waiting to get it, some surprised, some eager, some waiting to drink it! ❣️🥰 Her stories are like no other!

  1. Love Naina’s caricatures full of expressions, if you look for them…Love her imagination!

    Liked by 1 person

  2. A free-hand mandala drawn
    Makes a lovely poem spawn
    Both astonish
    Naina’s, too, relish
    And may the wish definitely see dawn!


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