Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

Silence of the Night Dec 6, 2007

did the sun have a chance
to shine across the land
when rain clouds marred
all that was visible to naked eye
as day turned to dusk
amidst the endless drizzle
agitated drivers cursed and swore
as traffic stopped and started
with no indication no prior warning
in that masses sat I alone
behind me wheel
tapping in rhythm to radio's tune
lost in a myriad of thoughts
fuzzy as my fogged up windows
he came to mind and so did he
another and yet one more
so many hes and hims
each etched in memory
distinct unique personal
foot on accelerator car inches forward
the last streaks of day forever lost
behind dark angry clouds rain laden
my car and I amongst the crowd
move now rubber on tar, eating away the miles
each he, each him make tiny inroads of a smile
still outside, the rain pelts my screen
my eyes peer out intent, focused
the sand against my tires alert me
for I am home as suddenly as I was not
with croaking toads chirping crickets
water gurgling past the monsoon drain
invites a sigh
mixed emotions attack
I stand admiring the damp starless night
as sudden gust of wind brushes my feverish skin
a smile escapes into the silence of the night
