Immersing the Goddess

I carved her out of my many dreams She was my worthiest creation She improved with every molding and I reveled in the modeling I gently twisted and turned the clay till she grew more expressive each day And added the many tiny touches as well as myriad colors to my brushes I grew obsessed…

On Killing a Tree by Gieve Patel

“On killing a tree” by Gieve Patel is a great example of a really good poem. It was prescribed in our school textbook and some of you might have read it earlier. Though it’s very difficult to quantify the merits of a poem, one unmistakable quality of a good poem is that it has at…

Sadness of the Moon – A poem

Remembered one of the beautiful poems on the moon “Tristesses de la Lune” (Sadness of the Moon), by the famous French poet Charles Baudelaire (1821 – 1867). It’s interesting that most of the famous poems on the moon are sad, romantic ones. This poem is from his collection of poems “Fleurs du Mal” (Flowers of…

My Last Duchess – A poem

Today I’m posting a poem written by the prominent English poet Robert Browning (1812 – 1889). He was a master of writing dramatic monologues and many of his poems were passionate, violent, ironical and had historical settings. He was also a very emancipated man (I’d rather use the word “emancipated” instead of “feminist”, because the…

The Night Sky

I walk into the darkness beckoned by the heavens and look up at patterns in the sky moving along in slow motion from East to West imposing Scorpius, unmistakable with his menacing tail a veritable nightmare then I spot Jupiter alone yet unflinching, spectacular the many faint glimmers I try to resolve with my naked…

A Rainy Day

I remember the dark day I stood by the window watching the rain while the wind howled mercilessly and the trees shook their disapproving heads The streets were like rivulets gushing to obscurity with unlucky passers scurrying through them The pouring, pouring, pouring, that seemed to know no stopping brought back memories that were forgotten…

Rendezvous in the Rain

It was a beautiful monsoon evening the breeze was enchanting the flowers had showered the earth was scented the moon was rising between the clouds longing for you I slipped into the oleanders and waited in the shadows amidst fallen flowers I listened for footsteps but only heard the rain starting again raindrops splashed and…

Know your “Personality”

“We learn from experience that men never learn anything from experience.” – G B Shaw Above is a hilarious quote by Bernard Shaw. However, it’s not just funny, it’s kind of true and supported by psychology research! If you look back at your own life and find yourself repeating some of the same mistakes over…

Be Grateful to be Happy
