The shelter of darkness

The scary stark light very bright, Is the reason behind my fright; The darkness you find fearful, Dresses me pretty and beautiful; Afraid I am to face myself in light, For I will lose my optimistic sight; The dark is understanding and kind, It makes me feel pretty when I am blind; This darkness creates [...]

I won strength

You see my strength and not the pain, You don't see my loss but just my gain, You see me smile and my happy face, But the scars hidden, you may never trace, My eyes are dry, now they dare not weep, My hidden wounds lie in my heart so deep, They have healed, but [...]

..and I smiled

A tear peeped out of my eye to smell your fragrance emanating from the lost memories..it swimmed in it sucking the nectar like life from those misty memories..it jumped out to take a deep dive in it..to get drenched in the passion.. and vanished...lighting up my face with an evergreen smile 😊 Copyright 2018 Chitkala [...]

Silence- a reflection

Silence gives the world peace, Silence makes you feel guilty, Silence makes you feel romantic, Silence gives you tranquility; Silence says what words don't, For silence has its own voice, Emotions love silence than words, For, deep inside a meaning lies, Silence opens the golden gateway, Giving life to the unheard feeling, Taking it to [...]

Freedom

You were  born free, They chained you, They easily caged you; But your legs were free, So you felt obliged, Though your  hands were tied, Huh! You call it free? So happy you were! For the little freedom there? They shrugged it off! Their true  responsibility, Such a pity! Freedom is responsibility, They could not [...]

Secret of survival-2

In the horrifying hurricanes, The little grass sustains, The tall trees growing high, Break down and die;   Smart stream of water, Changes its colour, Finding its way through, Hiding its face true;   Old little snail so naive, Will hide and survive, With deceptive tiny shell, And a different story to tell;   If you [...]

Life of illusions

I live a life full  of illusions, Deciphering shapes of constellations; I create stories from memories, And try to grab them and freeze; I rejoice these frozen stories, And take them to the world of fairies; The fairy in me makes  me realise, The melting of memories before the sun rise, I start waiting for the tranquillity , To freeze the melted moments [...]

River of culture

Burble the streams of culture Over the rocky path of time, Civilisations they nurture, Eventually they sublime;   They become one and merged, Unique, diverse and rare, With past submerged, Under every historical layer;   Blended and mingled together, Enriched with time, Getting racy and richer, Like the sweet old wine;   As time passes [...]

A dove with a broken wing

The sky was cloudless, clear, dark  and black, There was no question of turning around back; Not on the hill which the rain bathed green, But walking on flat roads where nobody had been; The adamant fog tried to block the wary way, But the roads said 'run' you don't have to stay; The silent pebbles [...]

I wrote those lines for you

I wrote those infinite lines for you, I never wanted you to read them, I wanted you to feel the gaps, And paint a picture in them.   I wrote those infinite lines for you, I never expected a word of praise, I wanted you to feel that song, And listen to what my heart [...]

Open to experience

Open to experience! I am like the land lush green, Enjoying the hurricanes! Still so pure and serene! I love the invasions, I welcome the storms, I glow with confidence, breaking the set norms; My skin tanned brown, the bright sun shine, With persistent hard work, getting softer and fine; The water shares stories as [...]

Secret of survival

The magic of the moon is so evident, The beauty spots making it exuberant; The gold glitters when raw and pure, Jewellery dazzles when made impure; Sweet, soft , & serene will always suffer, Unless it takes up a tough thorny cover; Clean true & right cannot survive, But a trace of wrong helps it [...]

Petrichor

The dusted soil settles down, Spreads the petrichor around; The hurricanes of mind leave no pain, Calms the mind lake with sultry rain; Rhythmic breathes breeze the body, Peeps the sun from the sky black cloudy; The red petals stretch wide from ear to ear, Willingly spontaneously with no trace of fear; The energy rays [...]

Ugly beauty

It was a morning so fresh and fine, Colourful was it and bright sunshine; I confronted a young gorgeous lady, Whom I knew since she was a baby, It had just been a few but long years, Her sensitive smile turned into jeers, Lines of innocence fading the child-like face Bitter experience turmoil leaving its [...]

Finding peace!

The mind gets ‘thoughtless’, The dark sky gets cloudless; ‘Silence’ envelopes the jungle, No sorrow left behind any longer; The deep dark water is so still, The heavy heart takes a ‘chill pill’; ‘Crowd less’ is the ‘red’ road, In a long-lasting peaceful mode; Attachment and aversion soon vanish, Relishing cherishing in peace I flourish. [...]

Move on

The warmth of the bed holds me there But I leave those mushy dreams there Twinkling nights intoxicating fire flies Embracing sunshine losing moony ties, Getting drenched in the rain so wet, Bidding rain 'good bye' I don't wait; Seasons of life change their colors fast, I enjoy 'today' forgetting the 'passed' past; Butterfly flying [...]

Rolling on the dreams..

Rolling on the dreams of clouds, I am awakened when I fall on bed; To hide it I have a silent shroud, But in the dainty dreams I wade; Closing my eyes to paint & fantasize, A colorful picture lively & sensational; Knitting knots of the tempting tiny ties, Pleasing myself in calm contemplation; Struggling [...]

The butterfly of joy

The colorful butterfly of joy flies, Heart to heart those have ties; The colors of mirth change with time, Leaving faces with fragrances divine; It stays for a moment on the little heart, Before you realize flies to another heart; Sucking the sweet nectar of optimism, Stays long in blooming hearts of some; The more [...]

The lost care

The world has lost the meaning of care, It doesn’t know why to share; Getting practical night and day, Killing emotions and love…Why stay? ; Lacking concern, self centered everyone is, So easily its forgotten how to make someone happy and please; “Thank you, sorry” become mere formalities, How we can cure hurt hearts with [...]

Let me live maa…

A pregnant woman who is undergoing a female foeticide has her baby daughter in her dream saying.... “I grew up so big...from a single cell! Why everyone is up to kill me? Is it just because I’ m a "female"? Please let me live maa.” "Parents are support-less, because of their irresponsible sons; But hardworking [...]
