Happy Festival of Lights

Lights, lights and more of them around
Sweets, savouries and the cracker sound
Every happy heart greeting another one
With a smile on their face
Singing a happy song

Prayers and fun
Crackers even in the sun
Waiting for the night
When there will be all light

My wishes for you
Will always be true
Happy Diwali
To your family and You

May Happiness Prevail
And Blessings Galore
May all sorrows disappear
Begin it anew with this hope...

Wish each one of you a very happy, prosperous and a safe Diwali. Have fun!


My eyes say it all
You knew it all through them
I never needed words
To tell you
What I felt

Today there are tears
And my eyes seem to blur
The vision you saw in them
Today and then

You say
You don't understand
For once I feel
It all has failed

My eyes
That once spoke to you
Today has multitudes of emotions
But all in vain

Why is what I want to know
To know what made you so
What made you love me like this
And then, just leave me and go...

A Standing Testimony

You saw a dream
A beautiful one at that
I changed it all
And shattered it with my wrath

It hurts you
When you see me this way
May be this was meant to be
And we had to part ways

My love for you
Was true and pure
And for once my future
To me now seems obscure

Oh baby, I know
Our love is still alive
Its in you, its in me
And will always be
A Standing Testimony.

I Wish I Could Tell You...

I wish I could tell you
What you mean to me

My world revolves around you

Just as yours around me.

I know you are hurt

And that hurts me too

To hear the pain in your voice

I know your love is true.

You always told me

How happy and lucky you felt

You had her by your side

And rest everything was dealt.

Now you are shattered

To have been stranded alone

Thinking about the past

And love forlorn.

Just to tell you

I am there around

Bestow your faith in me

And it will be love , lost and found!

Are the echoes
Of our inner self
Unveiled they show the truth to us

I stand in front of it to see
To see how true I am
Tell me oh dear

New day
New beginning
New start to everything
Smiles spreading happiness around
All joy
I see
People smiling
Roaring to witness new
Day full of experiences



Life (A Reverse Cinquain)

Life is
Revival and Resurrection
After the pain we face
We wake up to
New Start

Smile...My First Cinquain

Away always
Removes pain and sorrow
It shows the way to happiness

The 'Darling Of Poetry'...

Finally, after a lot of thinking and speculating, I have decided to go ahead with this new blog of mine exclusively for poetry!

It has not been very long since I tried my hand at poetry. I still remember my first poem...and that day Vinu told me, "Artz you are the Darling Of Poetry". :)
Since then, he has taught me how to make my poems better, he taught me Acrostics, Loops... and I recently learnt Haiku and Acrostic Decasyllable Quatrain. Its gives me a lot of happiness when I try all those new things that I never even dreamt of trying.

Guys, keep coming to this blog regularly... Darling of Poetry (Dop) is going to getter better with each day! :)

Dop! ;)
