The Foodie and the Traveler

This is a rhyming couplet about a young boy who is a big-time foodie and his love interest who loves to travel and explore the world. This poem is very close to my heart. Both keep on wandering all the time one about the food and other about the places she want’s to travel. But as they say, “not all who wander are lost”. But unfortunately, this boy has only met her in his dreams.

Bare branches

  Bare branches.  When stripped of leaves, do they know that spring returns again?  Broken hearts.  When nooses beckon, do they know that love will heal the pain?

You’ll hate me when I tell my truth. My feelings splattered on the page. Still wet the tears, though blood runs dry. Your feelings locked in wound lined cage.

Abou Ben Adhem by James Henry Leigh Hunt

Abou Ben Adhem by Leigh Hunt

“Abou Ben Adhem” is a short poem that says the best expression of the love of God is the love for fellow human beings. It’s neither the prayers nor the church services that get you in the good books of God.

the dinner

This is the second (not in order of writing) of a series that I wrote as an Army Officer posted along the Chinese border in the Himalayas. I went through a period of extreme creative intensity along with a need to self destruct. From several poems that I wrote during that period, I have discarded many but have preserved around 25 which I plan to share on this site, along with a series of stories from a totally different period. In addition to, and alongside my army career, and a corporate career spanning 22 years, I have been a stage and screen actor, and playwright. Some of the poems that I plan to share have been performed on stage as they lend themselves to physicalization. Currently, I use a methodology that I have evolved called “CorporateTheatre” to facilitate experiential learning in high-performance leadership and team dynamics for corporate leadership and teams. This has been welcomed across several Indian and multinational organizations.

Toxic love

You left me drowning in the middle of the ocean. But instead of screaming for help, I found myself diving back into you.
