crystal clear water
cascading smoothly, washing
the blues out of  me

My Thoughts And Prayers


It has been awhile since my last post. I do miss this little space in my life; just a space in blogsphere where I share some little thoughts or some simple write-ups, anything in general which comes to mind at any point in time. This space is my little treasure for it unites me with bloggers' friends across the globe.

It is towards the end of July and what a shame for me, for I had not been able to update this blog for a month until now! If it could be lack of creativity, well, I am afraid it might be so. I tried to write but ideas did not come easy. My mind was not focussed really on other things but work. No, it is not a complaint, that's my bread and butter. 

It is past midnight. I cannot sleep yet, so here I am now! Earlier, I took tea ( a few mugs) and this is the price I have to pay for. I am intolerant of caffeine. It will keep me awake till dawn! Luckily, it is weekend. I can have a few hours of beauty sleep during day time.

At the time I write this, I am thinking of the doomed flight MH17. My heart goes out to families and friends of the devastated jet. It is so heartbreaking and shocking upon knowing what had happened. What a tragic year for my country, we lost another plane just about four months since the mysterious loss of  MH370. How heartbreaking it is to see images from the crash site. I have been following news of the tragedy from our local tv news and international. 

To families and friends of those on flight MH17, my heartfelt condolence, please stay strong, my thoughts and prayers are for everyone. You are not alone in this time of sadness. The whole world is mourning with you.

A Mere Dream

Many times I counted the sparkles in your eyes,
That sent countless sparks to my heart,
That thrilling moment, I captured in my dream.

Limerick


There was a lady so beauty conscious,
Every minute she wanted to be gorgeous;
One day, much to her dismay,
She saw a strand of grey,
Popping out of her beautiful tresses.
