It’s a day to appreciate life – more so for blessing me a family. A dear person showed me a perspective of life through anothers’ eyes. Indeed life felt like a blossoming flower in the right atmosphere!


In a lucky daughters shoes,

You’re above the worlds woes.

Flying across the skies,

And establishing your pride.


With a saint for a father,

Who wants nothing further,

Except for treasures,

In his baby’s pleasures.


You have an angel as a mother,

To whom your tears ain’t a bother,

You share a very strong bond,

Of which you seem very fond.


Your brothers a lark,

Adding to life a beautiful spark,

He provides some serenity,

That will last an eternity.


Your sisters a dove,

For whom you feel much love,

Though her words are sometimes untold,

You know her heart ain’t cold!


You’ll never lose them,

For you’re special.

They’ll never hurt you,

For they live in you…

Embracing Motherhood

In thoughts of a dear friend, all set to deliver her baby – I am super excited jotting this down. Its an emotional moment for every expectant mother and I am hopeful this would add up to her joy – as we await the homecoming of her baby.


There’s a fascinating change,

An adorable will to relax,

Relieving herself of all hassles,

To give life to a healthy being.


Some sweet pleasure is anticipated,

As her fatigued body falls back.

Thoughtful of challenges to overcome,

To nurture an unseen nature.


Glancing over at my chum,

My eyes beam with enthusiasm,

Astonished by her determination,

I admire her transformation.


I seemingly comprehend her sentiments,

The reasons of her persistence,

She will’s to crystalize her aspirations,

Hoping to cuddle a divine life… Her Baby

Silence Hurts

Whilst our time flies,

I seek some consolation.

My heart crumbles to realize,

You don’t care for my emotions.

Unsure if I am happy,

I envisage being sappy.

I ask out of curiosity,

What causes this triviality!

Each moment my eyes trawl,

As you’re all I forestall,

Despite nurturing our relation at heart,

I wonder what keeps us apart.

Even though we’re together,

My presence doesn’t matter,

That even you’re greetings uncertain,

I’m hurt by the silence you maintain!

Happy Diwali

Appreciating life for its colorful side, the joy and glad tidings of celebrations help realize that Humanity rises above individual beliefs. Here’s my wishes to Friends & colleagues celebrating Dipawali.

A festivity of lights,

Moments filled with laughter,

The sounds of heartfelt Glory,

Bring the picturesque to life.


A subtle difference in the environment,

It’s not only the firecrackers,

Rather the sounds of the souls,

That spread joy beyond bounds.


Indeed a season of blessed essence,

Strengthening ties amongst humans,

Giving rise to the aroma of togetherness,

Indeed an occasion worthy of celebration.

Wishing you a Happy Diwali

Time to be Alive – again

A light caption for this poem – Life is a beautiful journey & solitude isn’t the way to live it. I took this picture at Paradise Lost in Nairobi – Kenya.


Smiles and tears,

Help conquer fears.

Facts can be painful,

But patience is soulful.


The heart needs a solution,

To some endless evolution.

The mind is alone,

Like my strength is gone.


I feel real affection,

Without any confusion.

I need you around,

To enable me sound.


I want my life shared,

Without a moment spared.

Living every moment to the full,

And spreading Love to all.

Sweet Slumber

We all go through some beautiful evening, when we are sleep deprived – since we have someone on mind. I feel the same tonight, just that I could write down a few words – hoping this would do justice to my emotion & allow me to slip away into slumber 🙂  I did get the right image for my poem too. I captured this beautiful sunset at the foot of Table Mountain, Cape Town – South Africa.


A wish comes to mind,

As my heart kneels to pray,

With your image in my eyes,

I humble myself to God.

No fairies to blanket you,

Nor angels’ to guard you.

No clouds to shelter you,

Neither stars to lighten you.


As your mind needs to relax,

Your heart needs to dream,

Your eyes need to imagine,

Your body needs soothing.


I pray for your calmness,

Some rest as you slip into bed,

Hoping you sleep soundly,

I wish you sweet Slumber.

Can’t Let Go

I spent a beautiful afternoon at Fisherman’s Camp on the shores of Lake Naivasha, Kenya – enjoying the cold and rainy weather. While capturing pictures of these birds, I pondered into the below thoughts as one of them flew away. 20160220_135544I know you have to leave,

For you never belonged here.

I realize you have to go,

For you had calculated your stay.

I don’t wish to say bye,

For I ain’t prepared for your departure.

I might be selfish,

For I enjoy your company.

I might be too sensitive,

For I can’t wave you goodbye.

I might be speechless,

For your visit was too short lived.

I might be scared,

For I don’t know when we’ll meet again.

I might be heartbroken,

For I still haven’t said “Please stay back”

Salient Sunset

I captured this picture of the astounding Atlantic Ocean at Camps Bay, Cape Town. Amazed by the beauty of its stretch, I couldn’t help but drown into the depths of this scenery.  It was a calming experience that led into jotting down a few lines…

A calling to silent life,

Very sincere and natural.

With eloquent peace,

In every minute of time.

Feeling breathtaking freshness,

In every bit of a second.

Experiencing unlimited pleasure,

In every speck in sight.

Its not about being lonely,

Its just naturally human.

Wanting to be at peace,

And falling in love with nature.
