Tick talk

a poem by Vidya Vijay

We sometimes call it precious.
And sometimes call it vicious.
But we don’t know much about it,
Which makes it all the more suspicious.

It is. It is a fact.
That without it we will lack,
A moment and a second,
Which we cannot retrieve back.

Recoverable? No, never!
So we must be as clever,
To use it while it lasts,
As it does not last forever.

It can’t be paused.
It can’t be tossed.
As time that’s lost,
Will always cost.

The Stream of life

a poem by Vidya Vijay

Life is a like a sturdy stream,
And with it flows our wavy dreams.
The Stream will rumble,
And the stream may grumble.
But we should never, dare to tumble.

The flowing stream, may tend to slow,
That’s when our mighty wind should blow.
Sailing fast or sailing slow,
We must never forget to row.

By now we’ve crossed all the bends.
Followed trends, and lost our friends.
But all of this we must amend,
As our flowing stream, it has an end.

My Love

a poem by Anu Pillai

They say that he is out of my sight
But I say he is there in my melted heart
Which keeps me smiling the way he smiles

Unusual space

a poem by Amshudharsai K

Pretty good is your flavoured talk
Breathing the compassion besides you
And making the trust mercy us
Heart burn’s can’t be like to your likes

Not a stand to your negatives
But for the start to let you real
Waiting for your essense of smile
Which make my heart to share your pain

Stubborn to succeed
Like to bear
Which jealous your against
To be the minimum bearer by your honesty

I may not be with
But be in you for you
For your smile, and for
Support to my heart’s light

I am only social
When your wordy
But not by your cute aggressive
Fill the space and be the whole

Notes to Nocturne

a poem by Vidya Vijay

When the antique organ is played,
The crowd they don’t hooray.
Instead they show their say,
In a more subtle way.

Beethoven touched those keys,
He showed us what he means.
His music left us keen,
to hear his symphony.

But, oh the great mozart,
His music was like a tart.
Sweet and short, tied up in a knot.
But still, no one could defeat.

In reality they fight,
Both the black and white.
But in music they unite,
Creating melody just as bright.

It was that smile

a poem by Anuja Pandey

It all started with a smile
I thought you meant it for someone else,
Thinking who can ever like me.

Well, I know I look odd with those chubby cheeks and these specs on.
But did it ever stop you,
I kept ignoring the fact that it is me.
It was always me, but it never click me.

And we went on this way, till that day.
There you were in front of me, waving at me, even with no space for air to pass by

Do you even know, I always wanted this, wanted us to let go,
Let go of all the emotions, emotions that crosses by.

I wish I could have hold my breath and asked you your name,
Because you always knew mine.

Paper Clip

a poem by Sonali Shome

Content, is what I feel
Holding in my arms every layer of yours

I know I’m barely there
To gather all that you offer
But be sure that I am giving my everything
To be with you

The thick and thins I don’t mind
They just test my grip
You know I’ll twist my ways
To embrace you and your kins

For the world will have reasons
Both natural and human
To take you to the top when need be
And put in a murky place the very next day

But don’t you slip away my dear
When its windy outside
And never say goodbye when summoned
Cause you’ll be back soon, I know

My arms will have you back
Not caring for the creases you’ve endured
