How the bird saw it..

That bird, it chose a window,
A window of the room of a girl,
The bird, she saw pain in her eyes,
The girl but otherwise looked normal.

The girl, she spent her exp laughing all day,
And nights she cried profusely.
The bird was confused thoroughly,
She did not understand the joy or the tragedy.

The girl was a pretty lass,
Enjoying her life until,
She met him, saw him there,
And became friends and then lost her will.

The girl, she sang beautifully,
Wonderfully she worked out.
But depressed inside she was,
And no one about it she told.

The bird, it wished,
It could spread some joy in her life.
The girl unaware,
Still laughed all day and cried at night.

She failed to understand
That all she wanted was not available for all,
But then she did see it with all the others,
And the bird also thought her void was unjustified after all.

So the next day onwards,
The bird also lost her chirp,
And started to quack instead?!
This,  the girl, she noticed, and at it she stared.

Just an eye contact between the two,
And nothing else between them.
Some magic just happened,
Now both of their problems came to an end.

Now the girl used to be happy all day,
And she smiled at night too.
The bird. Now wondered how this happened,
And how its wishes came true.

In a secret conversation with God,
The bird then tried to understand it all.
Turns out, God actually had intervened,
And snatched the girl of her emotions,
For there was no other way,
To treat such people, who had fallen in love and stopped to FUNCTION.



Diwali – Diyas & Lights.

As the winter fog envelopes our lives even before Diwali this year, may the lamps this festival bring clarity in thoughts, perception, ideas and life. A little poem dedicated to the festive spirit, read on and spread the joy.


The diwali diyas at Diwali Celebrations at Ban...

Her mind in dilemma, she encountered questions many,

Her heart in pain, she thought of answers many.

She looked outside the window,

And saw the city draped in lights.

Her heart lit up inside,

Her lips had a smile.

The lights pushed the pain away,

At least for the time being.

The bright made her pray and pray

For everybody’s well being.

The girl and I now, wish all

A happy Deepawali

May your life be illumined with joy, smiles and lights,

May your questions always find their answers,

And may you be as happy as CAN BE.

Warm Wishes this season,

Stuti (the Expression-ist)
