Acceptance!

Prisma, because nothing is real anymore. It's all a memory. 

Because every day is Mother's day.
Because I cannot even begin to tell you how much I miss you.

I lost my mother. My best friend. My confidant. My mentor.
I understand it takes a lot to bring up a child and I promise I will never let you down.
I am sorry I will not be able to make you smile again.

I will survive. All those you left behind will. Thanks to the strongest person we have all known in our lives.

P.S: To you, who said I truly loved only her. It is true. I was being very selfish regarding her. I have no regrets.

The View!

Chaliyam Pulimutt, Calicut.
So said the grass to the rocks, 'Make some space for me. I want to live looking at the bright,blue sea'.
Symbiosis, perhaps.
I certainly envy them for the view.

Fragility

Someplace near Beypore, Calicut

Just sometimes, we need to see things to remind us of the fragility of life. 
How fragile everything around us is.
People and possessions.
The human body and the mind alike.
No wonder they call it the web of life.

Somebody once said I am entangled in a web I created around myself. Don't we all have our safety nets? Our fallback options. Those strings that can pull us back if we wander too far.

I suffer from severe arachnophobia, but I have to admit. Some spider has been working its ass off making this beautiful web.

Flamboyance!

At Kannur, Kerala 
The fact that it has fallen,
and lies in wait to be trodden,
did nothing to diminish it's flamboyance.


P.S: Apparently, my 100th published post. Who's been counting anyway?

The sea.

At Bekal Fort, Kasargod, Kerala

I am the sea and the sea is me,
In the deafening silence during moments of solitude 
And the roaring lashes of my mood swings.
