AN ODE TO THE RAINY SEASON

As the earth bears the May heat,people yearn for an early treat,And the mighty sun keeps on unleashing its powers,Come June, and here comes the showers,A day or two of solitude passes,And then again, the timid clouds part away to make way for the arrogant sun,the twinkle goes from everyone’s face,as the sun continues to…

STILL THE SAME

I am still the same rose that grows by your side, and still the same drop of tear that flows from your very eyes, but you have found the orchids to make up your days, and pasted the fake happiness on your gloomy face. I am the same sun that wakes you everyday, and still…

Vodka tales – dedicated to Prarthana

I’ll not shy away from vodka I’ll have it in your memory I’ll drink it to your memories Because you live strong in my memories Wherever you are!
