Meandering Thoughts

A Octain Refrain written for OctPoWriMo – Day 29

As vague thoughts meander along
Quaint contours construing our lives
Whistling past our intricacies
Jolting us to where we belong…
We are vagabonds, here to bond,
Till we halt amid the wild throng
And leave them with some memories;
As vague thoughts meander along…

A Journey Of Choices

(A Lannet written for OctPoWriMo – Day 28)

Photo by MDragonwillow

Journeys set on mysterious pathways
Decided by our choices all the way
To reach a Paradise, the goal of all;
Yet our choices display disparate paths
Encumbered with nearly-right alternates
We flounder but name a mortal who doesn’t.
Though some be made right, timely forgiven,
Not all grave mistakes can be forgiven.
One’s choices that birthed the gravest sorrows
Own it, sincerely and wholeheartedly
Maybe, that’s what can be rightly done; as
You stand blemished in your choicest choices.
Destiny reveals one’s paths, my belief;
Do remember to celebrate each step!!!

(A Free Verse for OctPoWriMo – Day 27)

Ancestors, veiled beyond time,
Yet a part of them alive,
In prayers and remembrances,
by those of us who believe.
Seeking their blessings, accepting their graces,
I feel magic sparkling between the past and present.
As we cherish the goodness of our heritage,
In the warmth of friends and family…
May we remember with warmth, love and respect
The past that brought us our present to an even better future.

Similar Differences

(A Free Verse for OctPoWriMo- Day 26)

Art by MDragonwillow

It’s amusing as I ruminate on a past long gone,
As things are almost the same even decades later.
Similarities and differences differentiating pals 
A slight regret that I never pondered much then.
For when they felt my favourites were not theirs,
Didn’t I also feel they were different as they felt I was?
So, why didn’t them or I just accept our differences?
Instead, we drifted apart, far as strangers
Ignoring our similarities, accentuating our differences.
In the struggle to fit into an accepted normalcy
Conditioned and appraised through ages by the choicest;
I, somehow felt that I am an oddity,
Did they feel the same about themselves? I would never know.
Now, as I regretfully contemplate, a thought lingers…
In this normalcy drama engulfing us,
Aren’t we similar in our differences?
