MY FRIEND


FINALLY I CONCEDED,
AND RESOLVED ...
TO WALK; A PATH ....
LONELY ,DRAB, AND VACUOUS;
THE MILLSTONE DRIVING ME.

EN ROUTE
I CHANCED UPON ...THIS BEAM,
COOL AND CLASSY,
WITH A RAY OF CONCERN.

SPRANG FROM IT MY COLOURS OF LIFE
MY PATH NO MORE BLEAK
NOW A PHENOMENON,A SPECTRUM
OF VIVID COLOURS ;
PAINTED WITH EASE,
OF WIT AND CHARM
OF CARE AND TRUST.

I FONDLY LOOK AT IT,
AS IT HAS MADE MY WORLD SPECTACULAR.
TOMORROW ,I ENVISAGE ,
THAT THE BEAM I ALIGHTED UPON,
MIGHT BE A DEW.
AND MAY EVANESCE.

BUT THE COLOURS IT ETCHED,
WOULD LINGER ETERNALLY !!!
CLASPING THEM TO MY HEART
I WOULD WALK IN A PATH.....
VIVID,CHEERFUL AND CONTENTED.

Hi Padma,

A month has been elapsed since your last post about that "lip smacking snack"... and I have been so eagerly waiting for the next... and well, I feel it was really worth waiting for that long.... all beautiful creations are time consuming....
it's really a "GEM" Padma.. kudos to you.. we all who visit your blog are blessed with such a beautiful ode.. keep it up... keep writing Padma... I am confident that your that "friend" is there to remain with you for ever, be in the form of a "beam" or a "dew"... a "dew" that wont melt in the dawn rays because the friendship is soooo strong....

Sanjay
