Privy Poet’ Society: Serenity

Waking up next to the warmth of someone you love is simply blissful. It finally feels like home. You start your day as any other but halfway through you look at them and see their calm, serene face. You've longed to scale their face and when you do, you leave the imprint of your love. You forget all the complexities just by looking at their raw self. You don't want to wake up. Don't want to wake up from this dream....

Store Full of Stories: #1 Three People, Four Plates

That night, I heard voices. I crept towards their room, trying eavesdrop. I couldn't clearly hear anything they said, but I could see the frantic change in their expressions and the agitation as they argued. It went on and on for almost an hour.

Subconscious: I know, but I don’t know that I know!

While the other passengers turned their attention to the crying child, he directed his anger towards the poor vendor. “Can’t you see properly?”, he said angrily while he cursed the services of Saurashtra Superfast. “But, Saheb…” “It wasn't his fault, he was busy pouring tea in a moving train. He couldn’t have seen the child coming.”, she said while trying to clean her kurti with a tissue paper....

Those Moments
Those Moments

Although fortunately there exist moments that fill our soul with hope. And it is no secret, that they make us live each day with gathered courage; just so we see more of those rare hopeful days. Just to familiarize us with the emotion called love in a land full of discrete detestation. Those moments help us prepare to face life. And helps us register the fact that life is not going to be fair, yet somehow it is beautiful....
