You are my night sky,
full of gazillion shiny stars
that reflect back
my dreams and fears.
I can spend whole night
lying awake-
gazing at you

You are silent and luminous;
and plain-
without hues.
Who needs sunshine?
When all I have is
peace and tranquility
when I am around you.

Like a Phoenix!


It's funny when at job interviews after checking my resume, interviewers ask my age as if confirming.

Person: What is your age?

 Me: *tells him/her*

Person: *jaw drops* You look so young!

Me: Yes, I burn myself after every five years for re-incarnation! (in my head).  *says nothing*. :D

This is something I wrote last month but one thing or another kept me from posting here.

Here you go :)

Mother Nature carried me in her arms
another one-
of her traumatized child

healing invisible physical scars,
mending broken sense of self
with soothing lullabies
and numerous rattling toys.

With the extraordinary love
this wide universe sent
I assemble myself
once again
to walk upon this path;
carrying a head full of perspective
and an uncertain heart.

But that's how it goes -
we cry, we break, and we shatter
thousand times
and He lifts, fixes and mends us
everytime.

Now at this crossroad 
I have realized
the amazing ways 
His forces function;
and why 
His best creation
is always under construction!

The art of living
is simply giving

feeding a hungry
covering an unclothed
teaching what you learned
hence passing it forth

no tangible substance
neither gem nor treasure
can promise one
an ethereal pleasure

a walk into woods and a child's laughter
and all the mornings hereafter.

It's funny when you go through your old posts and realize that how different you were back then. You question whether it was you who actually wrote them. No, it must be one of my alters! The experience was overwhelming as someone who has time traveled into his/her past. Some memoirs are direct and daily rants while some are more subtle description of my experiences. Most interesting thing is my wish list which I made almost a decade ago. Let's analyze:

Wish list

Travel out of the country alone (I did once go to Karachi from Kuwait alone but yep, I want to travel alone)

Get a laptop 
- Learn how to play guitar (Okay, I did start but not interested anymore)
Rock climbing/ Cliff diving 
- Social work (I do very occasionally but it has to be more often) 
Write more poetry (Oh, yes!)
Learn to really dance (Not interested anymore)
Blog regularly (Yep!)
Watch live football match at stadium (hmm... not interested much)
Learn to sketch and paint 
Be more assertive
Get my own car (I would rather have a bicycle now)

And I want to add: 

- Learn new skills

- Learn a new programing language
- Write a poetry book

Some of the skills I have learned so far:

- Sewing 

- Hand embroidery 
- Baking
- Fondant cake decoration


I have to craft my blog readership as well.

His routine

Come.... eat.... sleep ... go... (x Repeat)

Marital bliss is a myth!

So, it turned out that I had to spend whole day alone due to some unfortunate incident that required my husband's time and presence. It's past 4 am and he isn't back yet. The day went fine but night seemed long because of the silence around. Except for rattle of occasional passing cars it is sickly quiet.

I hope morning brings some good news and my husband otherwise I don't know how I am going to spend another day alone. This is the thing I resent about marriage. One can't enjoy without being thinking of and longing for the other.
