A Bird’s Eye View…

A bird’s eye view…

A stray thought flew with me in my imagination,
I felt the giddiness of ecstasy, of it’s elevation.

Visualising a birds eye view of the condition,
Puts your life back into the right perception.

Different angles when seen of the same location,
All scenarios are truthful as per viewer’s description.

Good or bad then becomes a relative indication,
Determined by the birds eye view of the situation.

Neither you are wrong, nor am I right on this occasion,
All depends on how the scene leaves it’s impression.

Looking at the larger picture is always a suggestion,
Imagine a bird’s eye view before every expression.

It’s that time of life to do a little Introspection,
Respect all opinions and see them in the right perspection.

I flew with my thoughts deep in contemplation,
Having a bird’s eye view, from a vantage position.

Voices Inside Of My Head…

Voices inside of my head,
The ones that I most dread.

Sometimes they are so silent,
Like a cat’s paws they tread.

Not always quietly heard,
Shouting n then always fled.

Scattered in corners of mind,
Like autumn leaves they spread.

Raking them with sensibilities,
I burn them in my mind’s shed.

Some are good, some are bad,
Racing like lightening they sped.

People think I’m crazy n loony,
“We cant hear them?” They said.

Incessantly Self judgemental,
Why they can’t be quite instead?

They are thoughts of past held,
Reminding me of mistakes I made.

Protecting me and warning me,
Very carefully on a path they lead

Sudden calm n silence I hear,
Chill, relax n control,my mind said.

Quiet are the voices in my head,
Looks like the monsters have fled.

Seashore…

Millions of waves were colliding on the shore,

Tolerating their tantrums was the invincible seashore.

Foaming at their crests, troughs angry to the core,
Disheartened by the coast, the more they swore.

With mysteriously disappearing in the mist, their roar,
The beach remained stoically silent to the core.

Just like the silent, strong, imperturbable seashore,
Face the music of life with a dance ‘n jiggle ‘n let soar.

Lost in a book…

Your best friend…A nice book…Enjoy books on happy World Book Day and always…
© Lost in a book…


As a child when I was lonely and alone,

With no true friend to call as my own,

This one buddy never ever let me down,

Always felt like a princess with a crown.


From first page till last I would thrive,

In the vast ocean of words when I dived,

Searching for treasures with Famous Five,

Wishing for Richie’s wealth like a naive.


Marvelled at the magic of Mandrake,

Diana and Phantom gave me heartache,

Mason, Poirot and Sherlock kept me awake,

Every moment was like a different snowflake.


As I grew, my heroes caused me much pain,

Pride and Prejudice sure became my bane,

Jeffery Archer made my mind little insane,

My books I loved, I am not one to complain.


Now am at the hearty middle age of fifty,

Though words go a dancing and go twisty,

Wearing glasses and with a shot of whisky,

I want to get lost again in that world so nifty.

So long farewell…

So long farewell…
‎Running barefoot on the tickly grass in a zest,

Finding hidden treasures like the cuckoo’s nest,

That was life at it’s utmost best,

Alas but it has gone by in a haste.

So long farewell…
Splashing in the rain puddles galore,

Searching treasure at rainbows end was the folklore, 

That was life which I enjoyed more,

Alas it has gone out through the door.

So long farewell…
Walking along fields of clover on way to Dover,

Feeling very lucky on finding the Four leaf clover, 

Salty smell and a wind that blew one over,

Alas that life is now as good as over.

So long farewell…
Walking by the country side passing fields an farms,

Rabbits foot carried for sure as a good luck charm,

Feeling happy within my heart so warm,

Alas those memories are like a distant storm.

So long farewell…
This life is in a constant state of strife,

Hanging a horseshoe on the door of life,

Wishing for a childhood in the second innings of life,

Most like a musical note of the fife,

So long farewell…
Now looking forward to a life so swell,

Just threw a coin in the wishing well,

In the past I don’t want to dwell,

That’s my story surely in a nut shell.

All’s well that ends well…

So long farewell…
