the irony of love –
it leaves you
breathless
yet restores you
back to life
in the same moment

wait.

Posted on Updated on

In a sacred moment
I tasted your presence
to the depths
of my soul
and all I ever knew
melted away

time stopped
and that moment lasted
for eternity

in your touch
you showed
what it means
to feel,
in your embrace
what it means
to belong

enwrapped in you
snow flakes
started to burn softly
and I forgot
where I ended
and you began

lost in the day
a thought of you
brushed by
like a gentle breeze
and butterflies
started fluttering
under my skin
in anticipation.

Whisper to me, softly
the secret of cosmos
that I may hear.

chaotic stillness

Posted on

Life goes.. forward
or does it trace its way back
one encounter at a time
to where it all began

like a jigsaw
that you try to piece
your whole life
only to realize
it was already complete

in the name of ‘experience’
you stumble
diving face first
into your destiny
resisting, accepting, becoming
what you were meant to be

faces, forgotten faces
surfacing from abyss
at the time of need
others with time
sink to the bottom
in the deep

faces, traces, erase it
a hand once held
an embrace once felt
that left a taste of divinity

this fading world
sweeps past
so quickly
where is the affinity?

cradling fragments
embedded in the core
of true Reality
I persist
hearing the memory
of a quiet surrender
long before
I can remember.

Forgive me,
when I shamelessly ask
for your love.

Without it, darling Beloved
I wouldn’t be alive.

Untold Stories

Posted on Updated on

Now and then I wash upon

The shores of untold stories,

Begging to be told.

And as I crashed

Upon this sandy shore

Of a broken pair of lovers

I tried my best to cling onto

And grab as many grains as I could.

Before the waves pulled me back again

And the story faded away.

adrift

Posted on Updated on

I wandered with a hunger
that only your love
satisfied.

Secrets unveiled with time
pure gratitude remained
for all that I was denied.

As the vision got clearer
chaos collapsed, doors opened
even those I never knew.

Now I keep finding myself
lost in the mystery
that is You.

This pouring rain reminds me of you –
kisses of life softly planting on my skin
at a thousand places.

season’s greetings :)

Posted on Updated on

My lovely readers,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being a part of this space 🙂 Appreciate each and every one of you. Writing and poetry has been a sacred experience for me and if you can resonate with even a single post here, I’m humbled and grateful. As I went for a walk this beautiful morning, a realization surfaced that I thought I’d share. Three things of value that can’t be compromised – the company of loved ones, taking time to feed the soul and enjoying simple pleasures of life.

May this holiday season bring you warmth, love and all that you’re looking for.

Love and Light always,

Himani B

Light
has always been there
never beyond reach
flickering
at times flaming wild
defined spaces
clear boundaries
but to have a heart
that has bled much
loved much
it is in darkness
that the human in me
comes to life.

aloft, on fluffed clouds
I breathe in freedom,
moments
drip pure light

feeding on music,
sipping poetry
no more longing
for drunkenness
that once
made me feel alive

cadence

Posted on Updated on

I trace you
in quiet moments
of love and madness
in a language
beyond words
for thoughts collapse
when lips part
and a hidden speech flows
from your soul to mine

I beckon you
to dream
for within you, my love
the shine of a million diamonds
is waiting to gleam
the likes of what
death cannot touch
and life cannot flee

I treasure
your most aching parts
for even though
we have loved and lost
we still believe
in the sheer enormity
of our sacred beating hearts

I hold you
in tight embrace
for even as rain pours
your love soaks me
to my bones
without a warning
it often comes crashing
at the threshold
of my soul

I invite you
to come in and stay
for my universe expands
in encounters
like yours
where in just feeding
each others appetite
and caring, one finds oneself
cared for

so hold my hand
and lets chase cosmos
and the stars at play
as the Divine writes
our eternal fate
between me and you
beloved soul
love will always find a way

throbbing garden

intoxicating
you and me
a divine musk

as love
writes
upon each verse

time
slithers away
distilling into memories

ours
shall be a memoir –
a throbbing garden
bursting with colours
in full bloom
