The Third Person
Six years after we met There we were sitting opposite each other Just the two of us again We sat there talking inane banalities
Wings of Nostalgia
The world spun at breakneck speed and came to a stop You happened!
They say, absence makes the heart grow fonder But what if absence goes on and on? We wonder! They also say, waiting brings rewards sweet But what will our waiting bring, when we meet?
A walk in the Twilight
Twilight seeping in from the setting sun in the ocean, Lights coming on across the lagoon, Amidst them the colour-lit heritage building Glowing in splendour pulling all eyes to it
No letter, no word, no sound? Parched for news
The Single Mother
"Is my child okay at school? Has he reached home from school? Why no call yet? How will I attend the parents' meeting at his school, When I have an important meeting to attend at work?
First In My Life
How do I begin to tell you? What you mean to me? Father, friend, the first man in my life!
Spring Petunias of Dubai
The petunias are out in force Heads nodding in nimble glee They decorate the streets of Dubai in dappled splendour! By the flyovers, beside the interchanges

The Third Person
Six years after we met
There we were sitting opposite each other
Just the two of us again
We sat there talking inane banalities
Not saying what was uppermost in our minds
Because the third person was present too!
In our thoughts of course!
As the evening wore on
We kept it intact
This societal comfort zone
We have created painstakingly
In these past years
We were and probably will always be
Loathe to disturb that zone
Just because of that third person
The one that we both love so dearly
