Two sides of the same coin……

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?


Until I read, I cannot learn

Until I learn , I cannot earn

the wisdom , for which I forever yearn

Until I earn , I cannot return

to the world ,when it is my turn

Until I return , I cannot spurn

the evil called ignorance

Until I spurn , I cannot let burn

the torch to inaugurate my passion

to use my words and ideas to churn

my  own space called ‘Pen’lightenment !

The inertia..

A vacuum fills my heart sometimes

A vague sense of emptiness

Expanding ,and contracting at times

– a state of complete idleness

I feel , as if the world as a whole 

has come to a pause suddenly 

not a leaf rustles , not a breeze blows

as I try to picture my destiny

And then as I decide to pen down

my thoughts on to a paper

The mind  stirs once more , with a life of its own

and the inertia turns to vapor

For , as soon as the tip of my pen

starts flowing down to write

fine ideas take shape again

and I begin to see my inner light

Just a lot of memories of a good life and health……. ( poetry )

Daily Post Prompt

The year is 2214, and your computer’s dusty hard drive has just resurfaced at an antique store. Write a note to the curious buyer explaining what he or she will find there.


This isn’t a mere hard disk, you see before you..

It is ‘my heart’ opened up to examine ;

It contains , my passionate writings – a few ..

And details of  all my  monthly planning.

Menus for parties , I hosted at home

And a few ‘exotic’ recipes too ;

Lists of things , I planned to own ..

A checklist , of things I needed to do .

My computer was akin to my ‘Personal Diary’

A locker for  all safe keeping too…

For, in the depths of these folders ,many ,

are tucked in ‘Infinite’ memories , to view !

Beautiful images , that speak a thousand words ;

captured for life , through the camera lens..

In all corners of the disc abound …

precious memories of my  family and friends.

So if you plan on buying this thing…. 

Be prepared to receive my ‘hard earned’ wealth ;

Not  in money , gold , or  bling …

Just a lot of memories of a good life and health.
