Dental blues


I had my tooth pulled out today. Not any ordinary tooth, but a wisdom tooth. I can’t decide what hurts more, getting a tooth removed or getting kicked in the family jewels. While I linger around my bed and sometimes squirm in pain, here are a few lines that summarize my situation. There are some … Continue reading

The life we knew we could never live


The life we knew we could never live Is somewhere out there in the wait Asking for another chance It’s time to go, walk through the gate There are hobbies waiting to be picked Or asses asking to be kicked A million jaws just to be dropped And bullets out there to be stopped The … Continue reading

Open your eyes

Inspiration is everywhere. A coffee cup. A winter ravaged tree. The apple seed you just threw away. Dog poop. A smashed car. The point is, anything and everything in the world around us is inspiring. *feels small* Inspiring enough to write a story. The biggest complaint…

The snowman


I A slight chill graces the air As the leaves of fall mingle and fly away Riding the mischievous wind. Showers of white slowly appear And the air is now wispy, cloudy As the sleet covers The previously grassy lawn In a blanket of sparkling frost. A little child, bedecked in wool And armed with … Continue reading

New beginnings


Clear blue skies, Opened eyes Hands in hands, Wedding bands Crowded spots, Quiet thoughts Open air, Stand and stare Splash of wine, Joy divine Spoken word, Emotion spurred Years end, Ears lent Humankind, A lot more kind. Time for new beginnings. © 2014 Mihir Kamat A very happy and prosperous 2015 to one and all! … Continue reading

One for the holidays


It’s that time of year again To shop and cook seems such a pain Yet this is simply not what it’s all about There are also laughs and cheers Bottled ales and sweet, cold beers Little ones who love to scream and shout A nice little getaway Children gathered round to play Night time skating … Continue reading

Happy days


A golden stroke of sunlight In the calm chill of the morning The kiss of a coffee cup With the warmth of a thousand bitter Drops of heaven… A single songbird perched nearby, Chirping till its heart content Waking in the sleep of a hundred. I sit here lost in thought While I gaze into … Continue reading

Hello all! It feels great to be back at the keyboard after all this while. To everyone who was wondering where I’d been off hibernating, I want to let you know that I’ve moved many miles across the globe, and am now well settled in a…

Graduation day


The mother spots her teenager easily Bobbing in a sea of black As she meekly takes her seat at the back In the ocean of parents gathered today. A quiet stream of tears flow Somewhere between the laugh lines And curvy, dimpled chins. A sense of pride emerges, knowing, He was once, just a little … Continue reading

Good times


If pictures could talk, They could write an epic, Or recite a symphony, Like no other. I hope they’d talk About the day that we met, Of the chemistry as we looked Into each other’s eyes, Or of watching us laugh like no tomorrow. How we danced in the rain, Like toddlers without a care … Continue reading

Serena


The night is young and restless As the candlelight glitters on her face She’s all dressed up in black silk With eyes that betray her frenzied search. She wears an unlikely grimace As her wine’s insipid, yet she sips on, A mere ploy to kill time; To fill a vacant void. I name her, Serena; … Continue reading

The storm


We watch the moon in all its brilliance The light, it shines across the bay The sea is calm, but there’s a storm Brewing somewhere in the distance. The world’s away, left far behind But there’s no escaping your probing stare Clearly there’s more to be wanted, or felt More left for the taking. I … Continue reading
