Pritha's pomes

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

To the friend I never met…


You know what I want to do?

I want to see how you look when you read my messages on your phone and when we banter !

I want to see how you capture something beautiful and post it in colors or words

I want to see how you frown when we argue, and smile when we don’t

I want to enjoy your favorite restaurant with you, and see if it really is all that

I want us to sit and laugh with each other, at each other, and watch the world go by

As it looks at us and says, Oh those two must know each other forever,

Look at them giggling like school kids.

I want to see what your eyes look like when you are silent

And how they glimmer when you share your forgotten dreams.

I want to take a long walk with you and turn back and walk back to where we started…

Such a long long time ago.

Yes my friend, I want to do all that when I finally meet you, if I ever meet you,

I especially want to see your face light up when we first meet, if we ever meet.

But till such time, it is in the joy of the unknown, I find my bliss.

Knowing I have a real friend, in what is supposedly a virtual world…


(inspired by the deepest of friendships I have forged with amazing people I have yet to meet…)

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...
