Pritha's pomes

Some rhyme, romance and a wee bit reason maybe, bear with me ?

I miss you…

Your summer skies and winter morn,

Your fiery twilights with thoughts forlorn,

Your calming nights, your soothing breeze,

Your affection to make me smile with ease.


Your places of worship that so abound,

Your cacophony that can still every sound,

Your colors, your rivers, your very milieu

In your thoughts I find the essence of life, anew.


You can lose oneself in your crowds they say,

You are a plethora of texture in every which way,

Your heart holds us all with love and pride

Never turning away anyone who has sought your side.


Oceans away from your shores,  I may wake up this day,

Not a word will escape my lips, for you to hear me say,

For all the cynicism you may think about me to be true,

In my silence and in my words, I will always miss you….


(a dedication to my country on our 61st Republic Day celebrated on Jan 26th )

Professionally have I OD'd on OD ( organizational development ) for over a decade and more . Personally, I am all about making the mundane a wee bit more meaningful and of course a lot more fun in the process. In the course, of course, I very often fall flat on my face, but the joy of getting up makes it worth the "trip" ! Visit, explore, and do write back what you thought, and why you will come back again or never ever; either way I am grateful you dropped by ! Am quite a scatterbrain which is synonymous with being a Saggittarian, so don't take me too seriously; I try not to :) on most of my sensible days. On "other" days, I have more than enough very very well meaning well wishers, who do that for me and land me safely back to earth ! What would I do without them I wonder ? And then I pause, and I often ponder. For all the times I haven't let them be, How on earth would they feel, they were saner than me? Arguably and not so humbly yours... Pritha PS: And yes.. a new mom at 41 is my new identity and I am writing a new chapter with my little girl one gurgle at a time...
