On a cold night when the starlight whispered
On a cold night when the starlight 
whispered into the ears of the alluring 
hanging oranges looking for the 
pulsating pores of purple passion
in the light and dark of moonlight

In that biting cold all of a sudden
the moment you grabbed...Read More

The Dance on the Mountain Peaks
At Paro of Bhutan I found the clouds
Gathering over the snow white peaks
Over the summit the deep blue shroud
Kept looking on in dazed disbelief

If one takes up my fountain pen
Or snatches my favourite umbrella
Restless naturally are all the grains
Confusion arrives...Read More

Writing Without Reason

Better still is the agony of agony,
The awful angst of it all.
A writer needs no reason,
To sing about the season.

After an Evening of Indian Classical Music...
This little man,
This shake of hair and shoulder life.
