Raining Joy

Trees tremble in rain

Like naughty tots in showers 😀

Simple precious joy! ❤

As Death Star, Black Hole

Love Drains; You consume me – I’m

Irreconcileably yours!

Day#6 of #Napowrimo, 2017 – National Poetry Writing Month 2017

Today, the offering is a Haiku – Japanese Lyric poetry. 3 lines, of 17 syllables. Arranged in 5-7-5 🙂
Picture courtesy, Google Image Search. The picture of that gorgeous rose belongs to the person who took the picture 🙂



They trail, most loving, fragrant feelings
As they walk this journey , arms entwined
From two to three, more of their lovely beings..
They hold each other – they are one-of-a-kind!


(Net connection is back 😀 )

This in the morning, when no connection existed, was this limerick 😛

A blog tradition pending,
Due to net connection ending
Has prompted this early byte
For today, till I’m able my blog to sight
So to them, Pratibha and Arjun may I wish, happiness and love, unending!


And now this, as I ruminate, and squeeze this in, just in time 😀

She of sunshine smiles

He – Sun child – ever the same

This Haiku – all theirs!


And finally, an acrostic 🙂

Partial to love, pretty much the best!

Awsumm, always there, hands outstretched

Raring to go, never mind where!

(J)ust, jovial, jest-ful, ever, no matter when!

Understated never, uncomplicated, unanimously the friend who’s always there!

(N)atty, naughty, never nasty 🙂

Four poesies on this string, to tell you of her and him
Her is Pratibha, and He is Arjun
And this be the day, to cherish, to celebrate
Their wedding – a gladder, madder, fun-ner one
I’ve yet to attend 😀

May you two always be there for each other, hold each other, through all the walks of life 🙂
Sometimes A or sometimes P, lead each other on, with all the love you have 🙂

Thank you, too, endlessly, for the brightest spark in my life – my Nainu ❤


Happieeeee Anniversary! God Bless you all, infinitely!

*does a jig* She made it, she tells herself 😛


Spring is in the Air

For wont of repeating a title already used here, Love is in the Air (LINK – dedicated to a young newly married best friends couple of the elder son 🙂

So, to Spring. The season, which begets new life, new breath, new ummnhhhnn… feelings, shall we say, and not use the “L” word yet? 😛

The Basant Rithu (बसंत ऋतु), Ponn Vasantham (പൊന്‍ വസന്തം), as we see it in or “know” it in India is the time when there is blossoming, and fragrances of sweet sweet emotion in the air. So why am I waxing lyrical about the season?

For one, I do that pretty well – ramble, sometimes lyrically, sometimes wax nonsensically too 😛 A second reason is the way the season sprang on me this morning – when I actually thought of breathing new life to this space, that has been rather badly neglected. Thanks to Shail’s invitation to join her in the “February – a month of ramblings” mission again, this year. The #FebruaryFlows, or the #RamblingsinFebruary (LINK) was the first ever challenge I managed to complete – so it is with the past success in mind and the hope that the words will visit, when I have time on my hands (and that I have time each day 😀 ) that this year too, I shall spruce up, and let Spring into this garden 🙂 🙂

february ramblings

Sigh. The thought of Spring, the knowing of February, and the L word pops up! How can it not! So, it is with Love: Khalil Gibran puts it so well, in “Song of the Rain”

So with love –
Sighs from the deep sea of affection;
Laughter from the colorful field of the spirit;
Tears from the endless heaven of memories.

I’ll let the tears and memories wait for now. It’s the beginning of the Love Story here. Stories. These are going to be my ramblings this month I’ve decided for now. I hope I don’t change my mind, but if I do, I’ve already told you I might 😛 😛

Chapter one is a Haiku 🙂

She peeked through lashes

Eloquently silent; Love

Enveloped him!

Lets see if the Spring Season with spring a few surprises, spur me on with this story, nascent in thought, wispy tendrils of the narrative slowly forming, perhaps to blossom, for real 🙂

A toast, then to The Season. Spring. The Flowering of Feelings. Gently leading into Love. For Love!

Anniversary Wishes to a beautiful person, and her equally wonderful partner through Life. Nandini and Gopichettan, may the togetherness of your days find more meaning yet, as you voyage on to new adventures and happinesses 🙂 🙂
