  5. You know what, you are my inspiration to write poems. I'm still learning though :P

  6. And you know what, thank you for giving me the idea of writing (c) and do not copy below the poem. I decided to got for it after I indeed had one of my poems copied :|

  7. I really do not know what magic you have that you simply string together some simple words and weave out something that is "fantabulous".

    I have to ask a question regarding copyright. Is it simply enough to put copyrighted below the post or you have to actually register it?? i do have some work planned and feel simply adding copyrighted may not be enough!

    Thanks for the morning dose :) :)

    cheers

  11. Reflections: Thank U Nancy. You really have been one of my biggest 'encouragers'. Much appreciate it.

    Arnab: Thank you. Appreciate your letting me know.

    Nidhi: thank u!

    Shantharam: Thank you. Different countries have different laws regarding copyright. It is complicated. If you google it you'll get all the info you seek.

    partywithneha: As flattering as it is supposed to be, to be copied, I really abhor it. I cherish individuality. Glad to 'inspire' you..Did notice that you put a graphic and a copyright symbol exactly in the same manner that I do for all my poems. Therefore I have felt this compelling urge to change my format in presenting my poems.

    Santasizing: Thank you so much.

    Ashwini: i wish you were Bon Jovi or aerosmith! :P :) Thanks for that fabulous compliment.

    Monika; thank you so much.


    Ajay: Thank you :)

  22. Hmmmm...while I read your poem, I'm imagining myself sitting in a cafe sipping espresso, staring in space and thinking. Why? I don't know :)

    Beautiful. I love your imagination.

    :)

  23. Yes, the same words can travel those distances and you are left wondering whether it is the time that give them their meaning and significance. And yes there always are actors involved too.
    And I think it was more about beautifully conveying those very thoughts, than the imagination, that is so remarkable about the poem :).

  24. Beautifully done. It feels like there is a deep story behind this. Like the characters need to speak.

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…
