Embrace

Infinite cosmic skies
Miles between us,
But every time I melt
In your warm embrace.

With my chin on your shoulder
A whiff of your musky scent
Boundless I can soar
Basking in your veritable pleasance.

Perfect Fit

We sat looking over the skies together
The jittery outlines of clouds
silver, streaked with the last of the sun
A lone bird flying off to home.

Our souls belong with the stars
With the vast sea, the mud and the rain
The perfect mix of home and beyond
Tangible, real, soulful, it’s dawned.

There’s only one true superpower amongst human beings, and that is being funny. People treat you differently if you can make them laugh.

Another One Bites (the Dust)

Honey, how I wish

I felt for you

Like I feel for chocolate.


 

Last Glance

Suddenly I whirl
For one last glimpse
But did you see?
We’ll never know, will we?

Drifters of the world
Lovers of the wild,
Once meeting somehow
Guess we’ll never know now.

Stars aligned, we shared a vow
Broken now, wonder how
How did we let go?
Think we’ll never know.

“I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open, but when we burst open and think we are dying; we’re actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that we’re suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before!”

– C. Joybell C. 

Huge Book Haul (Pics inside!)

I wouldn’t go the cliched way and say that books are life. But I will say that they make you who you are. Every story, every memorable line and every moving paragraph can bring on intense ecstasy or catharsis. And I will admit I have been so vastly affected by such books, or such thoughts you never only in the black and white of written word.

I have a high opinion of books because I believe that they are the truest sources of information, ideas, and influence. It’s no wonder I jump at the opportunity to buy some more books. Just one more, just this one and it ends up being a haul. I don’t expect anything else from myself either!

We had the local book fair two weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to go to it on the very first day. Having been to the last few made me realize that the first few days are the best. All the books are in stock, and you can have your pick of the lot, with not a lot of effort. I had gone in with a list of books based on their Goodreads rating – classics, fiction and modern ones and I am happy to say that a majority of my list was completed 😀 Without further ado, here are my one million books!

Flashback Friday: Death of an Artist

And these walls will never speak again
Because the feet that hung from the ceiling are limp.
Steady now, the hands of paint,
Stands yet another beautiful crimp.

“If you are a woman, if you’re a person of color, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world.

And it’s going to be really hard to find messages of self-love and support anywhere. Especially women’s and gay men’s culture. It’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you’re worthless. You know when you look in the mirror and you think ‘oh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know, that’s not your authentic self? But that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards, all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard-earned money and spend it at the mall on some turn-around creme that doesn’t turn around shit.

When you don’t have self-esteem you will hesitate before you do anything in your life. You will hesitate to go for the job you really wanna go for, you will hesitate to ask for a raise, you will hesitate to call yourself an American, you will hesitate to report a rape, you will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote, you will hesitate to dream. For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution and our revolution is long overdue.”

Wise Words Wednesday

Fairy tales in childhood are stepping stones throughout life, leading the way through trouble and trial. The value of fairy tales lies not in a brief literary escape from reality, but in the gift of hope that goodness truly is more powerful than evil and that even the darkest reality can lead to a Happily Ever After. Do not take that gift of hope lightly. It has the power to conquer despair in the midst of sorrow, to light the darkness in the valleys of life, to whisper “One more time” in the face of failure. Hope is what gives life to dreams, making the fairy tale the reality.

—L.R. Knost

Top 10 Ways to be Patriotic

When you think about it, we are who we are because of our upbringing and our surroundings. And the country we live in plays a significant role in how we perceive situations and associations with groups of people. When you grow up with different ethnicities, religions and languages, we come to respect each person for their individuality and what they bring to the table. So I believe that acceptance is one of the most important part of being patriotic- that we can welcome all people with open arms.This and more in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post. This will be how we can be patriotic.

There is no such reason I should do such a post, considering the topics that I usually choose. But a few days ago, India celebrated its Independence Day, and that made me think how I could be a bit more patriotic towards my country. Continue reading “Top 10 Ways to be Patriotic”
