A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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


New Perspectives

Like inky nights
diluted with
pearly moonlight…

Like dry riverbeds
inundated with
rushing waters…

Like sudden stillness
invaded with
thunderous gales…

Or poignant silences
gentled with
murmurs and smiles…

And lack-lustre eyes
moistened with
tears of feeling…

Maybe there’s hope for us-
New perspectives
Untold and untried..

Normalcy now,
would be
an achievement.

A re post, to strive and find a muse again:)



A Full Circle!

The first time we met,
Didn’t seem that way!

A lifetime before,
But how does
The time elapsed
seem so little?

How we seemed
to just pick up
from where we
left off-

When Fate perhaps
dealt a heavy hand-
That we found difficult
to play!

And so, the Carousel
stops here, this lifetime-
And we meet – again.

Funny, isn’t it?
How life always
comes round-
A full circle!

Sort of connected mildly to the earlier post 🙂 Something that came as a sort of sequel, if you wish 🙂


The Carousel of Life

google doodle val day 13

Hop on!
I’ll take you
On a ride-

Gaily, you called out,
that fine summer day.

I shied away-
Rides were not my thing!
Not that carousel,
Of dancing horses,
Never still…
Dizzying moments-
Though excitement
and joyful cries rent the air!

Hop On!
You urged,
Reassurance warm;
flecked in your eyes!

What do I say now!

Hopping on that ride
With you-
Was the best thing
I’ve ever done!

No matter that the carousel
Whirled us round..
On a never ending
hurdy-gurdy of emotions!

For, as someone once said,

Love doesn’t make the world go round;
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile!

Also a tribute to the creator of the Ferris Wheel, George Ferris!
Joining google in wishing him 154th birthday 🙂

Added to which it is Valentine’s day. So this old post becomes a sticky post for the day 🙂


Life, Again…

Into the well of silence
Flows our unspoken,
But deeply felt dreams;

The day you stepped
Right into my life-

(And broke down
the defences,
Constructed painfully
Through years and years
Of Banging my head-
Against the Wall of Life)

You left me open
And vulnerable again,
To Emotion-

I was lost.

The suddenness of
A cold cold stinging shower,
And here I am
Awakened to Life.

I find the silence
From the Screaming
Emptiness of Loneliness…

Life sprouted again,
Fed by the dreams,
Infused by your strength,
Your relentless tenderness,
And lifted by your
Buoyant, uplifting
Cloak of Love-

And so,
I find

Re-post again, till the Muse decides to pay a visit 🙂 Bear with this rambler, please 🙂 thanks 🙂



just a couple of weary shells
on a lonely beach.
a couple of tired purposeless

till a grain of a fraction of
the golden sun
slipped between.

the pain started; endured
and crystallized as a drop of

into a liquid opaque milky

a beginning with you.
a realization of beauty.

my empty lifeless eyes
fill with tears….
