The need

We need someone to just sit with and talk about stars and skies/ constellations and celestial bodies/ suffocating hearts and minds/ withered leaves and dried bougainville/ hurricanes and drought/ tea leaves and decoction/ darkness and serial light/ smell of henna and last summer/ taxis and busy roads/ art galleries and museums/ hot chocolate and peanut […]

so the next time

so the next time when love knocks your door,say that you lost its keys long, long agoand you are searching, still searching,whisper word by word in love’s ears, because she’s partially deaf. ask her to wait with little patienceandinitiate a conversation,ask why she comes, gives and goes,ask why her life expectancy is short, so short,ask […]

November

This november was draped withdampened, drenched roads,cold winds, incessant showers,brewed perfect coffee, frozen tiles,quite absence and grey evenings.

This november made […]

Colours

Our mind, it’s thoughts are like light, the reflection of several shades, of various combination, of saturations and colours.Sometimes, narrow and shallow. Sometimes, wide and telescopic. Sometimes, they are the dim spark in the end of the tunnel giving hope to get through. It is you, who can change your thoughts, alter the light’s composition […]
