Smoked Pork in Axone

You see, they sayThe smoke in the meat and the umami pungency is vital.This lends to the taste, its unique flavour.Axone, the beloved of many.The Sumi calls it her daily sustenance. From the meek soybean to the viscous pasteA labour of love and care.To warrant that the paste lingers in the precise humidityAs it is snuggled into the bamboo basket lined with teak leaves.The warmth of the sunlight by dayAnd the balm of the fireplace by nightTo resurrect on the third day. The crackle in the peeling away of the...

My First Home

The purest of love,The anchor of life,Mama of all dramas,Teachers who never get paid,You love me more thanI can love myself. Your womb- my first home,Your son's first love,Your daughter's last.My forever inspiration. You keep my table clean,The only one who asks where I've been,You protect me! Mothers create wonders.Was and will be the safest home,Your heartbeat kept me alive,It was magic between your thighsYou could handle this rough tide.Still, like ocean strides,When I go astray, you are my natural guide.Always by my side. There is grace in your pride,You...

SHE

“SHE” is a woman of not just compromise but affirmation too!She, who embraces your sins as blunder,And prays for forgiveness, for the innocence that she only sees in youShe, who would walk up to Heaven or Hell if she could,Just to question the pain that you’re going throughShe, whom God replaced his angels with to look after youShe, who has fought wars and bears battle scarsJust to see you living freeShe, who has might and wisdom endowed;Yet chooses to let you set your willShe, who has led nations to victory...

The Walk

Watitsungla T Aier It was just another day,When the sunset and the sun rose,Just another day when the wind was travelling to collect tales to tell me later,The flowers swaying to his whims and fancies. The road seemed smoother and all the puddles were left untouched by me,The bright pink could not be stained with brown spots,The two pigtails should stay in place,The finely scrubbed hands should stay neat. The pink rucksack made a rhythmic sound with every step I took,I remembered the Flora classic pencil with its pink flowers,...

Perfect and Flaw!

Is she stupid?Cause she is tall,But she wear heels,Hahaha,She is definitely mad!Cause she is short,But like flats.Such an hoodoo he is!Cause he is cute,But nobody likes him.Proud is all he is!Cause he is handsome,And has a girlfriend too.There are perfects,There are flaws,And this is fact!And everything matters,Till your lifeline is.So learn to live,Laugh and love,With it!~ Taniskha Jain...

Courage – a challenge to accept

I'm still in shockFor the first time in life, I feel blind.Because, someone told me that 'courage' would find me in the most unexpected places.So I waited, waited for you to come.Then I assumed there must have been a little traffic so I wanted a little longer but impatient as I am, I got tired of waitingAnd I went out to look for you.I looked for you in the most common of places with no availThe first place I checked was under the bed.All stories tell us that there are...

Who is Yours? Who is Alien?

There was a day,When you were born.Can you call your familyTo be yours?And rest of the world alien.Will it be correct?You see owing to the reality,Nobody is yours,You are nobody's,All are rather alien.You have come alone,So shall you go alone. -Tanishka Jain...

Blame! Blame! Blame!

If you don't abide with next age group,And your kids don't understand you,You are to blame.If you are always on phone,And your parents take it away from you,You are to blame. If you didn't fight for what,You want to be in some years,You are to blame. If you are depressed,Because of others conduct, You are to blame. Tanishka Jain...

Love for my father

Your presence bolters me,Your absence depresses me;I wish I can be with you forever.Can't you and I get together?I am ready to live an ascetic life,To you, I adore to live. My mind sets me on being aloof,My life leads me to stay alone;Why? I do not ask myself! Half a heart I carry,The other half awaiting meIn the event where we will be one,Where we'll no longer be alone, but together.Maybe the universe is a place for tomorrow,Our life needs not an interminable spot for you and me. I...
