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

Of Quests and Crusades…

The Holy Grail of Love
Is what we’re told
To seek.

For absolution.

The ultimate
Soul-cleansing.
Back to completeness.
Love having filled
Empty spaces.

Well, you know
What they say
Of Holy Grails.

Of Quests,
That lead to Crusades.

Is it Holy?
Is it Love?
If you need to
Launch a Crusade?

You also begin to wonder…
How much is myth.
What is real!

At Life’s knee,
I heard this fable-
Read of it through
Words from those besotted.
Heard the whispered
Agonies and pleasures;
Tasted the flavours
From scented lips of lust.

And since then, have sought.
Have yearned. Longed.

Threw words to wind
Which might, in passing,
Fall on heeding ears;
Find a resonance
In some beating heart.

To have that word
Come back, with that heart. ❤

That’s how I knew
How I learnt.
My Holy Grail of Love.

Was I

Was I

To you.

Who caught that word
On the wind.

Caught it
Scented with
My yearning…

That fragrance
Behind my ear…

You say.

This moment.
As you hold me close
And we sip

From that sacred chalice.

Of each other’s soul.

Microblog Mondays 8: Keeping the Night at Bay

… was Buttercup; and that finally, in a brilliant series for the Young Adult, and even me, picky-icky (questionable, you might say), was the undoing. I never knew when the tears crept out, and my breath caught. There were many adjectives that I have been going through to describe that experience, of having read those books: searing, singeing, hurting, all the while knowing myself to be strangely vulnerable to an assault of emotions.

It’s the thing about getting back to reading after an absolute aeon. 🙂 Don’t ask me why I picked that, that story to read, but soon enough (a few tiny pages on the mobile reading app really 😛 ) I was hooked by the fantasy, the easy reading, the characters, and a connect; a strange connect indeed, at the end of the third book of the trilogy. It has been the fastest I’ve devoured  books, and that too in the middle of endless scripting and practising and sheer exhaustion due to the annual day functions at school. My reading app on the mobile (yes yes yes, I read on a darned mobile- now you know how starved for reading I was and how intrigued this story kept me!! 😀 ) kept motivating by endless stats and awards! 😀

The books as always, beat the movies hands down; even so, I’m looking forward to how the third part is conceptualized. I suppose you’ve realized which trilogy by now, if you’re the kind of reader who notices the categories and tags. If not, I’m sure you’ll tell me 😀

Edited to add (which wasn’t earlier, because it slipped my mind 🙂 ):

The epub files, and the reading app were recommended by a former student 🙂 Rasheen, thank you so very much! I’m now on ‘Northern Lights’, to be followed by the GoT. 😀 😀
