School life!

The unspoken words,
the unexpressed feelings,
the pranks not played and
the smiles not given,
the thoughts that were not thought,
the truth not spoken,
the gifts not shared,
the cheers not made,
the hugs not shared,
or the farewells not wished,
still dwell in me like fond memories,
that had once taken place in my dream land,
now nowhere to be found,
when awoken upon the realities of life!
Life seems to be endless,
and dreams seem to go a step higher,
but not the situations all granted,
or the opportunity not seeked,
to realise all the lovely dreams and the crazy desires,
that we face in our school lives!
If given a chance to choose my way,
to heaven or back to school life,
I bet I would wish for school life to come back,
and stay forever,
for all the hardships that we faced,
are hidden by the all lovely memories that we shared together!

As she tamed my dense and curly hair into braids of every possible beauty, I would sit there bored with the palm of my hands supporting my cheek. In spite of lack of time, my mother made it a point to wake up ten minutes early everyday just to make time for the wonderful braids that her fingers weaved with my hair. After she finished with the styling, I would gaze at my own self in the mirror and brim at her with pride on my face.

I would say occasionally, "Maa, you can b…

It was the fall again, they had gone for a stroll outside the university campus into the beautiful park where snowy trees surrounded the white spread and there were very few passers-by due to the freezing chill.
The two of them hovered around enjoying the beauty carpeted around them. Maureen had already gone down, working her gloved hands into the snowy layers. She started rolling a huge ice ball with a grin on her pink face. Steve looked at her dazed by the tinkle of her eyes and the jingle that her laughter spread in his heart.  The moist wind ruffled her blond hair, some of which fell onto her face like a wave onto the shores.
Steve just stood there with his hands folded, his lips curved into a mesmerizing smile and his eyebrows were arched in sheer amazement of what was happening to him that moment.   He felt…

Being humane

Every dawn dooms with wail

I never opine but in my daze,

For I am human, humane.
