• Thank you friends readers and passers-by for your continuous support to my blog. I will not be able to update often now and many articles and short story left hanging in the draft box due to the pressure of time lately but nevertheless I am trying to cope with it and will post few as time goes by.

    Pleasant day and have a good life.



    Good things come to those who wait.
    Better things come to those who try.
    Best things come to those who believe.
    Desired things come to those who pray.

The Way It Sometimes Is


At times it is like watching a face you have just met
Trying to decide who it reminds you of
No one, surely, whom you ever hated or loved
But yes, somebody, somebody. You watch the face

As it turns and nods, showing you, at certain angles
A curve of the lips or a lift of the eyebrow
That is exactly right, and still the lost face
Eludes you. Now this face is talking, and you hear

A sound in the voice, the accent on certain words
Yes! a phrase . . . you barely recall sitting outside
By a pool or a campfire, remarking
A peculiar, recurring expression. Two syllables

Wasn’t it? Doorknob? Bathroom? Shawcross? What the hell
Kind of word is shawcross?
A name; not the right one
A couple of syllables that could possibly be
A little like something you may once have heard

So the talk drifts, and you drift, sneaking glances
Pounding your brain
Days later a face occurs to you
And yes, there is a resemblance. That odd word, though
Or phrase, is gone
It must have been somebody else

Yes, it’s like that, at times; something is, maybe;
And there are days when you can almost say what it is.
