My college kept me really busy since my last post with a spate of seminars, quizzes, tests, reports and what not! Well, now I am done with my II sem-end exams and so, I'll be updating my blog frequently. It feels so frustrating to apologise and/or make(?) excuses every time you can't take time to blog! I don't have access to net from my hostel, so it just makes it so much harder than it already is. Probably I have to start MoBlogging :P.
Q: Why do they call Mobile blogging as MoBlogging?
A: WHY??!! Try doing BileBlogging. YUCKK!!!]
OK, OK, I know I digress. It was just a futile attempt of mine to catch up with the PJoKings of our class. I guess they are on a different level altogether. Don't even dare to ask me about my lecturers ;P.
SJCE's ( i.e my college's) magazine titled 'Jayzine' got released during the college fest 'Jayciana'. I had my two poems published in it. ( Had? I am in the Ed Board, remember? :D ) Well, one was my lengthy, lonely, sad and angry poem - 'Perfidy', and the other was named 'Her & Me'. I also did a part of the achievements section and collected the one-liners for filling up. I thought of 'Her & Me' when I just sat outside my home in Bangalore gazing at the hazy stars. She had visited my home only a couple of weeks before. I completed the poem while shuffling between B'lore and Mysore.
Her & Me.She stepped out of the carAvoiding the puddles with care.Soft lips curved as she sawMe looking at her face fair.Beautiful glittering eyes looked into mine,Joyful tears dissolving in the rain.As I lifted her up in my arms,She enveloped me with her charms.The fragrance of the pink flowersBedecked on her soft hairRefreshed me like a cool showerAnd knocked me out of air.We played together,We laughed together,And when we dancedIt was I who tripped.Sometimes I was a horse, sometimes an elephant,And a victim to many an endless rant.Funny that a cute tiny child three feetCan tame a wild man six feet.
The source of inspiration for this poem was my very little cousin, a cute toddler, Vaishnavi who bounces around for a whole day whenever she sees me.
PS: I am not six feet tall. Her father is that and more :) .Feel free to comment below!
