The Untitled Lady And The Dreamer In Me!

She kept walking aimlessly on the beach,
Leaving behind footprints of her naked feet,
With every wave that swept to the shore,
Old prints kept being erased,
But she kept walking making new ones.

I was sitting on the rocks bewitched by her,
Was it her innocence or was it her smile,
Was it the aura, was it her energy unseen,
What was it that made me feel mesmerized?
She was an enigmatic persona personified.

She looked up at the sky,
Searching for the shiny face of the sun.
She smiled when she spotted it glowing at her,
She shielded her face with her silky palm.

She turned around and called out for me,
Gesturing with her hands waving in air,
She was asking me to join her by the sea.
I got up from where I sat and ran towards her.

When I got to where she was, she was gone,
She vanished like evaporated thoughts.
And I stood stranded yet smiling by the sea.

Strange are the ways these pictures make me feel,
Hanging on my hall, all neatly nailed and framed.
I look at them yet again,
Trying to connect with the souls entrapped .

It’s the one in the centre, with a lady by the sea,
I am trying to shake myself out of the dream.
She looks like an angel, 
May be in a place that I have never been,
She might be someone else’s love,
And to me she is just another dream.

  1. For all you know, the footprints in the picture could belong to a guy, may be to the photographer who walked backwards to click that picture? :)

  6. The sea by itself is enigmatic and then you have brought about a lady. Must read Robert Browning's Cristina. I have spent more than half my life at sea and I instantly connect to anything to do with the sea

Awakening Of the Inner Self!

It was yet another Friday or billions of earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities,
Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached,
Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet,
Yet hope says they would someday be entwined.

UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged,
Unassuming how the world would read them,
Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail,
It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought.

Feelings expressed in words for many are view points,
Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few.
Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart,
These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art.

Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts,
Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest.
Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others,
Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.

-VJ says ~ cheers and peace

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.

A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.

We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.

We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.

"There are no easy ways, no escapes,  Yet we wish s…
