I am not a beach person
I am for the rapids, the waterfalls and the mountains.
I like far away, offbeat places
Places that have nothing to offer to the tourist soul
Nothing that would mean anything in whatsapp statuses and Insta Posts

I like places that don't call out for attention
Nor grudgingly even,  acknowledge my presence.

Raging hearts roaring and clouds tearing up
Peaks that pierce the silences of the skies
And moss and lichens glazing the sides.

Unrepentant,  unperturbed,  dangerous
Let me be and leave me alone kind of places

You don't have to tell me. I just know. Its that little sniffle that comes through The unexplained pauses The slow responses I know when you call Just because you needed to cry.

That Fluttering of Broken Wings

If you were to cross the road and hurt your toe, I know that I will never know. As we go on to take different roads and move on across different shores, there is something that happens to our relationships. Something that estranges, disconnects, disintegrates. I know that you still think of me. I know this because I find myself thinking about you. And thoughts rarely get seeded on their own. It comes from you to I and from I to you until one of us is alive. Old relationships rarely die. Like broken winged moths, they hang around dark alleys of forgotten memory lanes. Ever so often, I can hear one of them flutter its wings. Not too close but never too far.

Long Winter Chill

If I could do a Neruda, You would have smelt of summer roses And Autumn pine. There would have been sheer love Of the kind that causes our hearts to ache And loneliness bordering the divine. You would have had so many secrets Welling up as in a girly giggle And so few friends who would hear them all. I am no Neruda I can't paint you a Summer breeze Amidst this long winter chill.
