Apropos..

>> Thursday, March 13, 2008

Yesterday, you were a lighter smudge
in dingy sky, whereby shafts tinged
the soiled chunks of
my life, the muddy footpaths, and branches
not that I blame you entirely
for perpetual gray fog,
it being, the winter of memories.


Now that you’ve embraced the drab,
color looks out of place everywhere
tomorrow, like the February sun
you might emanate lucidity without warmth.
the world reveals itself
in tiny increments, integrated tangibly
when ingested over time,
in this distant year, the month of March
has offered, the foretaste of summer.

The slide of winter into spring
had been imperceptible,
frozen gray, to gutsy gray,
buds impaired, no color anywhere
today held, just briefly,
a touch of magic-
that cannabinolic splendor of
the morning after sleepless nights.

To chase a cloud of seasons with tempestous words and to strew its short, but weary way with flowers of your thought, and impart new feelings and meanings to it..This is not ordinary. You are gifted. Great!Chosen words..chosen thoughts...chosen metaphors...words lose its meaning if I try to say how I find it.. Thanks ARIA the Great!

You know, i was uncomfortable reading confabuation. Its just so close to home and so real and a little painful. I'm glad you're writing often.

aria March 16, 2008 at 12:45 AM  

Kunjubi .. welcome to my blog. Thank you kindly, for your lovely words - you yourself write so exquisitely that I'm humbled by your appreciation, means much.

Nidhi.. How wonderful you make me feel with your heart-warming words. I can't express.. thanks a heap for everything. Hope you are having a pleasant weekend. That label pointer made me smile :) Do take care and try updating your space .. I've been checking regularly.

Casper .. Yeah I have this habit of labelling randomly but I'll try being more careful in the future :D

Therapy .. I know what you mean :) Thanks for dropping by.
