For a while now I have been trying to come up with a blog post. It has been a while since I wrote something. And even longer since it came out as an article.

In the past couple of months I have witnessed many things that earlier seemed rather ordinary. There have been weddings, parties, as well as fights and disagreements.

With each one of these, there has been a distinct feeling that was born in me. Some of these events marked a feeling of complete pleasure, undeterred by the rest of the events.While others reaped a feeling of void.

This void is something that has fascinated me. Appealed me. Even appalled me. This void is something that is inexplicable and yet is evident.

This void is like a long haul. A wait for something that doesn't exist. Or may be it did, but is dead now.

A wait for something that you do not even know. It may be a text, a call, door bell, or a person. It may even be a pay cheque, new client, new friend. I know not!

In time I am sure though the wait will be over. In time... I just have to wait for it. It is a feeling I cannot put in words. No, it aint even a phase, do not demean it by saying it is.

It exists as much as I do. Its only for you to see it the way you see me.

So what may seem rather ordinary isn't really that. The void, wait, or even the sheer happiness. Do not tag it as a repercussion of an event. It is not a reaction. Well, not only that.

I tried to look at it in a different way, and found myself writing this. The void still exists. I am still waiting.But I am also happy. And the reason for both... well you'll have to wait till I figure that too.

That Day!

A look around and you see,
On the way to love's quest,
People hover like dragonflies,
To feel the feel of love's zest!

A day arises like none other,
Amidst the cycles of 365,
None has the magic though...
To make them feel this alive!

A day most worthy of living,
One of many magical gifts,
Like no other it brings to them,
Sheer pleasure, joy, and bliss...

A day where I see all this,
And I find it very byzantine,
Wonder where is it otherwise,
All that arises on Valentines!

Makes me also introspect,
Would I love to wine and dine?
If one day someone asks me...
To be his dear Valentine!!!

Love about You!

Love the way you look at me,
And the way it makes me feel,
Love the way my heart skips a beat,
And it willingly accepts defeat!

Love the laughs that we share,
And touches that make me flare,
Love the way- my hand you hold.
And guide me as we cross the road!

Love all the little things you do,
And all the running around too,
Love all that about me- you remember,
And times you deal with my temper!

Love your uncompromising love,
And you being there in times tough,
Love all the times---otherwise too
I just love being in love with you!
These are few things I love about you!

Tongues, Tails, and Tears

Tears blur my vision as I set to write this one. I am very sensitive to certain things. But this is one thing that has, and will always manage to move and affect me for life.

Reluctantly, yet irresistibly I saw few minutes of the movie Hachiko. Some may laugh at my inessential expression of emotion and my ability to cry over every small little things. Friends have even tried convincing me at how the movie is a cute one showing his loyalty to the professor.

Somehow, I disagree. Yes it is cute how Hachiko waits for him. But thinking of the fact that he spent mere 3 years of his life with the professor and nearly 10 years waiting for home makes me antsy.

Though Richard Gere's Hachiko died a comparatively peaceful death, dreaming of his master and their spirits meeting again, the real Hachiko died of terminal cancer. It was a movie, and I should let go. And the real Hachiko chose it for himself to devote his entire life to the long haul. But I really do hope that the spirits of Hachi and his master did reunite.

Blame it on the fact that I am a dog lover. But I doubt even someone otherwise could be insensitive to this. I really do not know what I am writing for today. There is no message, or point to tell. Neither a story to narrate. It is just a meager attempt to let out what remains in me after watching the last few minutes of the film.

Let this be just a small tribute from me to Hachi and all my pawed friends for the selfless love, affection, and care. For staying home while we work and then licking us when we return. For wagging tails, and cuddling up. For tolerating our mood swings and waking them up mid sleep. Even for those who stay on the streets and yet love me unconditionally... And for just being there. ALWAYS!

As for me and my over sensitive heart, I will just change channels than watching such movies again. They are cute and have a strong message. But I guess I have plenty live examples around me to know better for myself!

Not for the God's and the Almighty,
Neither for the ones loved oh so deeply,
Nor for the lil ones who jump on me...
Not for the nature, trees, and flowers,
Neither for the time ticking by the hours,
Nor for life and its unconquerable powers...
Not for fairies, genies, dwarfs, or elves,
Neither for my dear readers as well,
Today I write only for me, myself!
