A Beautiful Gesture

Isn’t life all about treasuring moments to be cherished later in leisure? I experienced a similar feel during my stay at The Leela in Delhi.

Work trip to India is always short, sleep deprive and hectic. I arrived last Sunday and traveling back today.

Yesterday, after a long day at work I returned to the hotel with a sole purpose to get my much needed sleep. My battle with jet-lag was troubling me to a point of annoyance. As I was putting my phone to charge, a paper note caught my attention. And as I read the note, I couldn’t help smiling. All my long-held tiredness disappeared in a whiff.

I am reading the third book of the Amish Shiva Trilogy. The book was lying on the nightstand next to the bed, and right next to it I saw a bookmark, with the image of the front page neatly wrapped around it, and a note from the Butler on duty, Rebecca Williams.

Such a thoughtful deed, and for sure she invariably touched few chords within me. Here is a big shout out to her and to her beautiful gesture.

Her Imperfections

I loved her imperfections. The shades of abstruseness she displayed, the vices she wore on her lips and the disguise she carried in her doe-shaped eyes. For her fallacies allows my disheveled self to fit into her clamor and then I can proudly call her mine

Your Seance

I am always at awe listening to you,
and I never mind lending my ears
to your thoughts,
for the gales, you rode
and the storms you abated
always left behind
such glorious tales to be told
and I forever remained astounded
shell shocked in your seance

Faded Sepia

The reminisce of our yesteryear yonder
still lingers fresh on my mind,
the moments of our innocuous touch
playing a fresh

And those carefree guffaws,
and the sleepless nights
the silly talks
and the momentary delight
all wrapped beautifully in my soul

And they play back today
like faded sepia of some stolen memories
resurrecting from some past yore

———–

In response to Manic Sylph beautiful though Faded sepia memories of stolen Memories. Let me know your thoughts

The Hope Survived

In response to Manic Sylph prompt Hope burst forth in the heart of a spring lover

You bit your lower lip
gnawing it with your even keel teeth
to a crimson red
putting all your might
to resist that smile
to grace your labium

And the rebozo
that shroud your visage
yet stealthily revealing
every emotion
through those curious
doe-shaped eyes

The fidgety hands
the wayward walks
guffawing sometimes
and at times hiding those thoughts
in a wryly smile

All said and unsaid words
burst forth hope
through the heart
of the spring lover
