Ending or Beginning?

ENDING OR BEGINNING?

Backs ‘n’ fronts

Jingle ‘n’ jangle

Swagger ‘n’ style

Open buttons ‘n’ cautious mind

Friday dressing ‘n’ strict no workplace dating

Overtime debriefings ‘n’ late dinners

Blinking lights ‘n’ flashing memories

Shaking hands ‘n’ cordial goodbyes

Biting lower lips ‘n’ arrested breathing

Whispering possibilities ‘n’ rippling fantasies

Teasing ideas ‘n’ contemplating realms

Killing glances ‘n’ last appeals

Moving away ‘n’ moving closer

Is it an ending or a beginning?

Forging ahead  ‘n’ yearning for more…

Half a Doctor

“Good afternoon, I have an appointment with Dr Geller.”

“Oh.., Sorry Ma’am his OPD is backlogged since the morning, there was an emergency case, he’s in the surgery as we speak. Should be out soon.  But you’ll have to wait.”

“Oh..ok…”

I resign to my fate and the ticking clock behind her. So today’s officially a bad day…I have a blog post to write, a  photo character sketch, due by 7 on the Editor’s desk and well in simple words no inspiration. I might as well use the time to try to get some headway on it here, I survey the room to make a beeline for the quietest corner seat among the other waiting patients.

“But Ma’am… his Junior is in, you can see him now.”

“But I regularly see Mr Geller only, you know that Gene”, I remind the receptionist.

Anyways I’m thinking he’s a junior doctor…what is that? At best half a doctor..

“But he’s real good ,” she goes on,”a part of Dr Geller’s team,take a consult,he can give you an initial diagnosis, no special charge, you can see Geller as soon as he’s out of surgery.”

Now I don’t change my doctor unless I really have to…I mean once I feel confident and comfortable with him…it’s all about vibes. But what’s the harm I reckon it’s a free consult…at the least he can help me figure out these test results…which are adding to my already jangled nerves not good either for my health or my writing today.

‘Ok’,I tell her.

….

‘The Doctor will see you now’, the assistant announces and opens the door.

‘Please come in,What’s the trouble?How can I help you?’

I settle in the chair and look across the table…

….

-a nice crop of hair, dark brooding eyes, wisdom on his brows

-hands clasped together on the table

-a man about business, image, detail, order and precision

-a clean and crisp air about him

– timeless -ageless…well age is just a number till you’re a senior citizen..

-the suave, quiet, smoldering intellectual

-a repository of knowledge, competent and skilled

-intelligent, professional and sexy without even trying

-a lethal combination of serious and naughty

-eyes which have seen both pain and pleasure in equal measure

-a mischievous smile lurking somewhere behind well..has to keep it in wraps after all it might be too fatal,

– internally engaged in some puzzle or conundrum

-the air of soulful mystery

-Hmm..Far more to the man than meets the eye

– Why doesn’t he smile more?….Ah.. there’s the risk of every patient being smitten..

….

I hear my mental typewriter inking and printing…

“Miss..! Hello…Are you ok? Do you need a glass of water?”,he asks with concern, breaking me out of my reverie.

(Haha), “No, I need a paper and a pen,”I blurt out, a smile creeping out upon my face for the first time in the day.

“Hunh? What’s the problem?”

“Well, yes, umm…coming to that…”

(Yeah…I’m feeling better already! The clouds are clearing..It might not be such a bad day after all!)

Fact or Fiction -Part 2

Honourable judge,” May I present the following witnesses, they all say they are in close relations with the Greek God. All are staking exclusive claims. Be kind to give them an audience, listen to their testimonies and then decide.”

-The shirt- ‘I sit proud atop firm shoulders ‘n’ fit every cut ‘n’ curve.”

-The shirt collar –“I sit snug on his neck, in tight embrace or in carefree abandon as maybe.”

‘N’ what of the print of his shirt- checks or stripes- “Oh!  Don’t mind us. We don’t really matter, he puts the style in fashion ‘n’ whatever he puts on is in vogue, you see.”

-The buttons on the shirt- “We get tickled silly, pinched by his nimble fingers as each stud is pushed into its slit.”

-The trousers-brown or black, “We ride astride his towering looks.”

The Wet Monsoons

The Wet Monsoons

 

Grey skies saturated with love ‘n’ humid with lust, blaming the season for their indiscretions…

Clouds pregnant with moisture they can no longer bear, praying for relief

“But dears, the answer’s blowing in the wind…”

The hot earth looking heavenwards with need ‘n’ desire

Lamenting, “Without rain, there’s no life…just like without wife, there’s no life…”

Its dry crust stretched to the limits ‘n’ cracked open -mutely saying “Come soon!”

A bolt of lightning from the blue ‘n’ crackling laughter splitting the air,” Your wish is my command!”

Thunder roaring the impending momentous occasion ‘n’ proudly reverberating it through all time ‘n’ space

Dark clouds veiling an illusion of the night, for the lovers to unite

The sun hiding behind ‘em to save embarrassment, temporarily putting off its light

Mother Nature shushing all the birds ‘n’ animals into a pin dropping quiet

‘N’ soon enough, the wind whistles,” Hey! Wait for me.” ‘N’ joins in the fun

…..

The first droplets fall, tasting like manna from the heavens

The final burst of the clouds raining cats ‘n’ dogs and buckets ‘n’ torrents

People in a helter- skelter hurrying home to gawk at the spectacle from behind closed doors

The slippery sludge playing practical jokes on their scurrying feet

“Sorry Sirs n madams, the streets are wet ‘n’ messy as you can all see, kindly pardon the slip ups!”

Fair maidens dancing brazenly on balconies ‘n’ roof tops- albeit in costume

Tangy pakodas sizzling in every kitchen ‘n’ choicest sweetmeats passing rounds, greeting one another “Happy Monsoon!”

Motor cars jamming, honking, their lights a blinking, in celebratory procession in every part of town

Those without a handy umbrella or shelter, damning their wet fate!

…..

Grace descending, water seeping ‘n’ parched earth sighing Ah! At last…

A commingling of heat, sweat ‘n’ wet

Drenching ‘n’ soaking to the very thread ‘n’ bone

Breathing in the fresh aroma of the unique scent Petrichor

A cleansing shower at once washing away dirt ‘n’ grime from every branch ‘n’ twig

…..

Quenching thirst ‘n’ wait seemingly centuries old

A symphony of sounds throughout the night, pitter-patter, piss ‘n’ spit drip ‘n’ drizzle

‘Now, I think you’ve had your fill, after all you are a brimming’

“Oh no, don’t stop! Liquid mercy rain on…”

A penultimate bright lightning flash sealing the electrifying orgasm betwixt ‘em

A still ‘n’ silent night in the dark forests, not a leaf found whispering, not a soul found breathing

Water again discretely washing away the remnants of tears of joy, heralding a new dawn

A rainbow in the sky-a riot of colors, the sun’s final benediction!

…..

The heavy downpour leaving the barren landscape green ‘n’ fertile in its wake

All flora and flora awash, aglow ‘n’ gay

Puddles of water on streets for lil kids to splash about ‘n’ frolic with fun

The rain gods profusely showering their blessings on one ‘n’ all

The trickle down gloriously promising a plentiful harvest for all times

Water gushing forth in every stream, river ‘n’ rivulet to at last merge in the ocean of bliss

……

Angels and Demons

Angels and Demons

We’re playing roles. Topsy-turvy. Zig and zag. All merry laughter. Giggles and grins. Our feet barely touching the ground.

She’s seemingly in my embrace. But ever sensitive, her mind always a step ahead. I can see danger approaching but she can smell it from a mile.

Ever protecting, caring, her hand gets ready to defend. I arrest it midway. On a fluke, I decide to change the rules of the game. Reckon it’s time to play a bluff or two. Make it more real.

She’s been hard too long. I grab and frame her face firmly with both hands. Pull her in and plant a kiss. Soft and deliberate. I catch her completely unawares.

Still the thinker, she assesses the situation we’re in, syncs in with the twist in plan “Ah, seems wise, why not”. So she gives in. And kisses me back.

Now the lines between real and pretense, sense and in sanity, wise and wacky blur in. Each sucked into a vortex of hunger unleashed. Mmm… we taste surprise and disbelief of a dream coming true. A real treat, slurp!

My hand’s barely in her smooth hair, one minute, slipping onto her shoulder in the next, trying to soften her toughness at the same time. I’m marveled by her special blend of silk and steel. Her hands glides over my skull and soul.

All is silent. Except for collective sighs as water soaks into parched earth.

I’m out of my mind. Eyes threatening to fall out of their sockets.  Even the devil freezes in his advancing steps and retraces.

But she’s still alert, with a corner of an eye on him, slays the demon, knocks me out of my senses and him out of the ball park, by now wacked out of his mind too just witnessing no doubt .Yeah, all in the same sentence and then she moves on.

Was I just kissed by an angel?  Out of breathe. Words fall short…

“That was…”

She turns back to look me in the eyes. Reading struck-stark-stupid.

“Yeah, Wordsmith, come.”

There’s no time now for word play.

However am I going to keep up with her?

I pat my lips to close before any more foolishness is betrayed!

Breathe in, breathe out.

Repeat.

Life is Peachy…

DSC_7391 (2) (2)

……..From laden boughs, from hands,
from sweet fellowship in the bins,
comes nectar at the roadside, succulent
peaches we devour, dusty skin and all,
comes the familiar dust of summer, dust we eat.

O, to take what we love inside,
to carry within us an orchard, to eat
not only the skin, but the shade,
not only the sugar, but the days, to hold
the fruit in our hands, adore it, then bite into
the round jubilance of peach.

There are days we live
as if death were nowhere
in the background; from joy
to joy to joy, from wing to wing,
from blossom to blossom to
impossible blossom, to sweet impossible blossom.
……—From Blossoms by Li Young Lee
