The Sunny Spot

Whenever I have come across the word ‘ Sunny ‘ in my life , I have not been disappointed. Be it the classy batting of legendary Sunil ( Sunny ) Gavaskar or the action packed , hard hitting histrionics of Sunny Deol, both the ‘ SUNNY ‘ s have made their arena sunny . Since last August, I am residing in San Jose of California, U.S.A. Here, too , we often visit ‘ Sunnyvale ‘ for some important purchase or the other.

A few verses:

At times, Life is sunny,

At times, Life is gloomy.

The sun rises,

The day flourishes.

The sun sets,

Telling us ‘ It is time for our rests. ‘

The sun is hot,mighty and powerful,

But, do  these qualities also lead to it’s loneliness- which would have been awful …

Had it been a person…..

Sunny spots in life are memorable moments,

They reduce the pain caused by spots of torments …..

The loop of routine

Man can be intriguing,

Man can be puzzling.

First, he creates loops of routines​,

Then , he gets​ bored of his surrounding palms and pines,

He plans a trip and travels faraway

He enjoys and explores in some way,

He relaxes and records memories,

He creates his travel stories.

After some days, he misses his home and loop of routine,

He returns with a fresh mind and repeats his routine….

It is back to sundry and laundry,

It is the same old story!!!!

The perfect Paragon

She loved numbers,

Cooking gave her jitters.

Her mother tried to teach her cooking,

But her daughter’s​ cooking attempts kept choking…

She felt low,

Her self worth hit a blow.

Her confidence dipped southward,

While eating other cooks’ delicious food, she felt awkward.

For her , kitchen was a place of defeat,

Dining place was her only place of seat.

Her mother treated her negative thoughts’ paralysis

She undertook her daughter’ s personality’s  S-W-O-T analysis.

She realized that her daughter is a paragon in mathematics , science and technology,

She decided to apply these strengths, thus stimulating the beginning of  a beautiful journey , with this culinary trilogy…..

She encouraged her daughter to make and bake cakes,

She knew , what it takes…

With her sense and skills of ratios and proportions, her judgement to understand the temperatures and machine settings,

She began a series of sumptuous bakery offerings….

Her cakes and cookies were mouth watering,

Her breads and baguettes were yummy,

Her cooked meals , could now fill many a tummy.

Her mother had set the ball rolling,

Her daughter had found her calling.

Infusion And Creation

A painter infuses life in his paintings,

By using colors and his musings..

An actor infuses different shades of emotions,

When he portrays a character and his notions….

A writer infuses a vast maze of stories,

When he writes from his imagination’s ,empathies’ and experiences’ galleries.

Infusion is an amazing ingredient of creation,

It articulately instills beauty and variation.


Infusion And Creation

Adrift and aloof

A lonesome feather bears the uncertain weather,

When it falls and floats in the air…

A balloon without a holder,

Looks bold and bright when it flies aimlessly in the sky …

A loose sheet of paper looks adrift and aloof,

When it swiftly flies in the air….

A leaf falls from a tree ,

It sways to and fro to find it’s way …

Targets, aims, goals, aims, ambitions, aspirations channelize energies,

But at times, being adrift and aloof for sometime,

Helps to experience uncertainties and improve one’s flexibilities too….


In the big picture of life,

Not all colours are necessarily as per our choice……

The Descent

When the star twinkles​,

When the moon sparkles,

When the sun dazzles,

When the comet sizzles,

When the planets, stars , satellites follow the system of movements,

Then there will be order in the solar system for those moments.

Some things are not meant to ascend or descend,

Some things are meant to receive  and  send .


The Descent
