How Silly..!

Silly, such a silly word!

Yes it sounds silly too

I write silly, often I feel

Perhaps few agree or few may not

Who cares such silly thoughts?


Yes I write because I love to

Not for anyone but for me

Not even to prove writing prowess

But to be with those moments

that converse with me naively.


At times I let myself be silly

I let my senses free so free to capture

Whatever comes in its vicinity?

I feel some flavour of invitation

comes from my creative realm.


Yes, I am witnessing some flirting

between imagery and words.

A unique blending and unfolding

A kind of fusion and confusion

It was invisibly visible, how strange!


Clouds are lashing as waves

Ocean is smiling on the sky.

Every flower holding an Eden

Alps and Himalaya at Ganges shore

Upon seeing all, I am at awe, How silly!


And told self don’t be so silly….
