Defining success...

How does one measure their success? 

Is it the feedback? 
Or is it the financial growth? 
Is it the number of people visiting you? 
Is it when you see the sweet change you wanted to see in your clients??? 
Or is it when your competitors pay you a visit without disclosing themselves? 
Or when your styles are getting copied?? 
When you become a determinating factor for other’s statistics?? 

It is strange feeling when you start noticing these changes. One had heard earlier but when it starts happening to you, the time has come when you are making/bringing new trends around you. 
I feel my responsibility has doubled now. Whatever the outcome, one must ensure there’s at least no negativity involved. Also, the art of ignoring the rattling observations should come easily. The journey has actually begun now. It is still a long way, even though destination may entice one like a horizon. The visibility and the proximity of which may make us momentarily happy…

but one has to go on………….

entwined in words
to grow on me
engulfed by want
simmering and yearning
a sudden withdrawal
a conception or a deception
a mirage of hope
but burning sands
no marks left
with time
masks I tear
wrenched with guts
to make it clear
devoid of a face
you fickle saint
the words of love
but all that remains
impressions on heart
mind n soul
shifting again
into another dune
till a wind blows
into it again......

26.11. Revisted

A jab on the side
Defaced and dazed
Shook out of slumber
Of routine and years
those were being
Spent like any other

Of lives lost
Taken away
Some given up too
Saving others
Breaths bleeding
Evening stretched
Night endless
Of crack shots
Of smoke n fire

Humanity hurt forever
A senseless dare
Is there an alternative
To decision of death
To take a life
Or to give up one's
Scars remain
Will always remain

Of being shaken
Out of that stupor
No matter what
Vulnerability remains
Questions remain
doubts remain
so does anger

Facade restored
Lives continue
Yet a black hole
Sucking the positivity
A nagging reminder
On a day like this
26th of November

as I sit in an empty moment

the hollows of time
engulfing the life
the life line of dreams
gets choked
the naked truth
of absence of a deed
stands before me
the stark reality
of timelessness
of stillness in the air
in an alien place
allows me to rest
another alien action
in itself
the dynamism
keeps me going
so the thought to rest
cripples me
bores me
haunts me
still I lay
trying to gather
an urge to action
in this empty moment
the hollows of time
the stillness.........

BEAUTY in her....

BEAUTY in her....

Beauty in the heart

of a woman
loving and giving
beauty  in the eyes
to glide over
with love and compassion
beauty in her smile
with gentleness
beauty in her touch
to make you come alive
with warmth
beauty in her words
to soothe you all over
beauty in her gesture
to be giving
beauty in her hug
to calm your nerves
engulfing for ever
beauty in her thought
to remind you
she cares
beauty in her strength
her resolve
to tell you she dares
beauty around her
she cherishes
she ensnares
she captures
in abeyance
she holds
and fills
the ills
for she is beautiful

i like it...

I feel it when night is deep n dark
When there’s stillness to it
When the world is almost dead
In sleep
I lie without a stir
Of thoughts or an action
When I am just ‘me’
Not a hang or an expectation
From the souls around or from me
It is the best

I like it when the sun has not come up
When it is just a rustle
When the birds have just begun
To chirp
When I stretch and reach out
For a whiff
Of the air that’s still cool
When my mind is fresh
The morn is new
 It is the best

I love it when I touch
When the dew is still so fresh
When it might just disappear
If disturbed
I just let it be
To stay on till it can
When the heat is not yet on
The nature is so wet
The birth of another day
It is the best

I love that time of the sun going down
In hues and in colors
When it is scorching no more
As amber
Allowing the world to lean
After a breathless day
To pause and to breathe
To rejuvenate for another new

I love that it gives rest

it is time...

time to ponder
to reminiscence
time to mull
over the years

time to spread
wings full fledged
time to touch
far n yonder

time is what
i have less of..

It is strength for nothing
the flow is vitalising
the resolve is amazing
still it is incognito
weakness of mind
criminal in thought
a nondescriptive action
a whodunit of feeling
the power that it rakes
to take with the flow
a myriad of hues
of wants or of desires
not the weakness
of strength
neither the force of wane
it is something special
the acceptance of self
a possibiity of act
the effervescence of thought
the shadow of fact
so be it
the way it is
a strength or a weakness
till it stays
