Remainder of a busy day!

These are words that hijacked my mind while reading  Sea of Poppies a novel by Amitav Ghosh yesterday night!

In the closed room marked by silence,

the stark lights fail to pierce footloose imagination

and my thoughts continue to float on the Sea of Poppies.

Distant yet magnificent is the lure of possibilities,

cunningly hoodwinking another day into another night

without slipping in the monotony imposed by time.........

...By me!

Aha! Subtle yet profound. Since when did you start writing poetry?

Thank you for the appreciation!

I would like to know your name.

I have been writing poetry since a long time... If my memory doesn't fail me, I have been writing since my school days. It’s just that I started keeping a tab on my 'Random thoughts and reflections' after I started this blog about 5 years ago!
