old youth

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”― Robert Browning old, frail and ghostly are they –homes and fields so […]

Path to Novelty

We see the world, not as it is, but as we are – or, as we are conditioned to see it. ― Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change There’s a torn tapestryIn a house down the street,That never stops glowing.Woven in gold and burgundyA stream of black streaksDown […]

Let it snow

“Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.”― Mandy Hale Flakes of beauty and castles of glass,Trees caked with pristine powderAnd the cold white blanket beneath –Testify to the great inner turmoilPlaguing the winter soul.

Extance

“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Manon, Ballerina

One day in, one day out
Erecting lives on fragile foundations,
Put one stone out of place
And the whole reality comes tumbling down.

To and fro, we move
Trailed by the ghost of illusions blue.
As the earth shifts beneath our feet,
We trudge through avenues once shut.

Knowing the sky
Is just a lifetime away,
We soar through tunnels and alleys,
Forcing time and seasons out of our paths.

As life and death pass us by,
Our core remains unharmed and untouched
At the end of the day, all that’s seen are reflections-
Of saplings braving the scorching sun.

“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.”
― Primo Levi

From December 2021 to May of next year, the months are specked with exams albeit, with breaks in between but it might be a few months before I can get back online. However, I’ll try to pop back in every now and then, especially for Christmas! The posts for October, November and December have been scheduled beforehand.

As always, I appreciate your constant support and look forward to reading your posts as soon as I get back!

Thoughtfully yours,
