If Only

BeFunky Collage.jpg
This is a ballad about the journey of a snowflake which was afraid to lose itself.

 I guess all of it was certainly meant to be, for us

I guess my eyes were already adjusting to see the dust.

What I had to be, was forced on me for the rest of eternity,

As I fell from the sky, I calculated the time left,

If only I had more of it, if only time could be gained by theft.

There were many like me in there,

who had tried to stop what they had to dare.

But they’d eventually helped each other to be,

If they could be individuals, I thought, so could be me.

But I raced towards the ground, to be what I was forced into being.

A part of a million flakes, none of them to be individually seen.

As I saw myself fall, I accepted things their way.

Because we’d finally perish, all on a sunny day.

But I landed softly on a fellow flake,

It felt different than I’d expected to take,

If only I’d been positive, I’d have known why,

I was made to be with my mates, aimlessly in the past I’d cry,

I was ashamed of my thinking, but I recovered,

Because my company gave me care, true love I’d discovered,

If only I’d thought of this, I wouldn’t have felt lonely,

But that would have happened, if only, if only…


How can I?


How can I create ,

my own sunshine,

while the storm

rages on……

How can I recreate,

my life,

while the guilt,

tries to push me down,

How can I know ,

where to begin afresh,

while the tears,

build up and make me drown,

How can I start,

turn over a new leaf,

while every leaf,

turns brown.

I was nominated by Story Teller for the freestyle writing challenge. Thanks to Story Teller for the nomination to this interesting challenge. Here are the rules:

Open an MS Word document
1. Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat.

2. You topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL    YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.

3. Fill the word doc with as much words as you want. once you began writing do not stop even to turn.

4. Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)

5. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and capitals. However, if you do, it would be best.

The Summer Season

Of the four seasons that pass by,, my favorite is definitely the summer season. It brings in the warmth of hope after a long winter (particularly where I live) . Summer is characterized by heat, uncomfortable time and often times fatigue. But, I love summer for the feeling of it. If it is compared to the winter here in Kashmir, then it is a blessing. After 6 months of chilly winter, cold and snow, we finally get to feel the heat and the light that the beautiful sun emits. Summer , to me, is synonymous with regeneration and the feeling of a new anticipation ahead. Hardly some people find the winters interesting here, but I find them boring and of course, in contrast to that, I love the summer season, which to me is nature’s exquisite smile.

So autumn was here a week ago. Did we notice it coming? Well, I didnt.  Surprising how we don’t see seasons changing and nature switching over to new hues. The mornings and nights are getting much cooler or rather cold. Days are getting shorter and people are getting lazy . Leaves of all colours are falling giving life a new tint . Thats why William cullen bryant said that autumn is the years last lovliest smile.Well yeah those are the leaves I noticed in my garden . (Now in a pile). Well there are still a lot of leaves to be shed and as autumn will slip away , winter will find its way. I guess winter is not a season to be welcomed in kashmir. This year passed in no time. I feel like it was yesterday when we bid goodbye to 2013. ….. well, life goes on 😉 .20141106_151916~2

autumn is actually the mosaic of all seasons. I love this season for the feeling of it . To me autumn is the season of freshness ( rather than spring) which it actually isn’t . But yeah I like it. This year it feels kind of different. Autumn I am trying to make you stay so don’t slip away at your earliest . Autumn is just beauty to those who want to see it.20141106_151925~2
