Faded Yellow


I saw a beautiful little flower on the road. The wind must have brought it on my way. It was crushed by someone and was faded yellow. Extremely beautiful and what a smile. Saying hello to me it beamed. I couldn't resist my curiosity and straightaway asked it about its amazing colour…the depth of the faded colour had seeped in me. I somehow was feeling the faded colour, I was in the colour. Smiling again it said, ‘because of your eyes’. I didn't understand the reply but I also smiled. I was influenced, captured and enlivened by the faded colour of the yellow flower.

Smooth, dull, faded magic touched my heart. Its lightness entered me. I was with kindness, love and serenity. The encounter was of a split second but the little crushed faded yellow flower left me beautified…forever.

Know Time?


I never knew time moves
Then I saw it slip
I never knew time walks
But I saw it run
I never knew time loves future
Oops! I saw it kiss tomorrow
I never knew time is invisible
As I saw it in wrinkles
I never knew time is a quiet winner
Soon I saw it with the trophy
I never knew time and its friend
Strangely I saw it in my watch
I never knew time is kind
Again I saw it fall as a blessing
I never knew time is mighty
Only when I saw it with the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park
I never ever knew time
Jumping, crying, laughing, assuming

Truth is, I always knew time
I just never felt it
Until now
