To Unite

It was the oldest tree that spoke first.

“We have to unite them.”

It took a while for the others to understand and when they did they all agreed.

The youngest was angry ” Life isn’t fair for us , we have to be in only one place all the time , look at that girl she has fought with that man now and they have separated , he may come back and when he does things are gonna be alright. Atleast they get a change”

“My dear” replied the oldest one ” We don’t move , so we fight rarely and when we do , we see each other every moment , so we forgive faster”

“So how do we unite them?”

“We don’t , time will.” smiled he.






Found You!

Memories stir,

Creating colors of naked joy

On the canvas of my mind.


Precious moments dazzle 

Bright like the sun,

Your eyes in mine.


You , a lost soul 

Looking after mine

So tenderly.


Darkness descends,

Years of waiting

Lost in hope


Memories revisited

Moments relived

The hope always hungry.


And suddenly ,


My best friend ,


Deep in the recess ,

With my soul

United after soooo long.


I couldn’t resist writing 66 words in 2 short poems of 33 each. I stared at the challenge and i knew suddenly that i had to break the rule , 33 were way too less!! I have found my long lost friend , my best friend , my first friend. I had to make an exception and here it is!

Manasa , this one is for you.

“Tell me Gaurav , what do you see?”

“Nothing , just a darkness…..”

“Close your eyes , try concentrating it harder.”

“’s there , greenery on the sides as if the entire stretch is an infinity a place where there is so much happiness but yet so little.”

“Do you see where you are?”

“Ya i am on the way standing on a wooden plank. It’s a long unending path , i stand there and stare at the way , i am not able to move.”

“Where does it lead to?”

“There’s a house far away , am able to see it but not able to reach it , my legs are numb , i want to run but i can’t….”

“Gaurav ?”

“I have reached it. I am the way , the path to my own soul.”

A Heavy heart

Darkness pops up in the bizarre of times , unexpected.

A heavy heart dwindles upon the news , shattered.

Memories flash , lessons learnt , friendship forged.

Poised assurance looms , abandoned.

Come back , magnified.


Love ,

“Oh.. Hi Kathy , i was bit lost there , how are you?”

“I was actually worried about you. I am fine. Why are you standing here from the past three hours staring at the picture on the wall?”

“Because i have never seen anything more beautiful than this.”

“Well what’s this , a snapshot of nature?”

“It’s more than that actually. Listen i am gonna try and explain , i have been lost in this beauty. Do you see the reflection of the tree over , the synchronicity of their being , as if they are greeting each other from different words. Look at the water , so tranquil as if helping the tree serve a higher purpose. The wonder of creation , a creation’s wonder.”

“Well mark i do appreciate the beauty but i do not understand your words. It’s so weird.”

“I didn’t expect you to understand Kathy, did you notice the a flower there , a tiny beautiful white soul?”

“Well yes…”

“You seem like that to me , standing at a site of nature’s perfection , being a part of it yet ignorant of that beauty.”


“Oh well come on let’s go , i know what i want to be in the future.”


“Well , a photographer.”
