A Tribute to True Indian Hero..

wordplay10


A Tribute to the True Indian Hero...

He practiced
humility
till the last evening;

Can we make
his concerns for
the country ours too?

Lessons from our Hero;
he was teaching
till the last breath

Will we learn?

Remembering
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
with humility in my heart
and a willingness
to stay a learner..

The Stranger Lights A Fire..

MidweekWordle8





As innocent in him plays a flute
the stranger lights a fire;
taking a leaf from a wilted flower
I try to write a haiku -

Trusting
nature, rose blooms;
simple

My Ever Growing Happier Past!!!


Yes, we have collaborated

I and my ever growing happier past..

Classic Love Story..


Leo's APED 


STCS6APED




Classic love story
shines through my haiku;
her eyes gleam his love
and his smile just says it all;
classic love story


**

Classic everything;
life's pursuit in a world
that is losing class

Ah, His Broken Flute..

For Leo's APED..

STCSAPED5

Thanks to Celestine / readinpleasure for the prompt..

Ah, His Broken Flute....  a poem..



Winds no more carry
those love notes to her ears;
ah, his broken flute
she picks them 
from the deepest corners
of her heart
where they have stayed
whenever she sits
silently in her balcony
listening to the winds..
the lost notes become alive
and take her to a
magical world
where her dreams dance to
the melody of his flute
Yes, those love notes have
stayed in the deepest 
corners of her heart
or so he thinks..
