    The roaring zephyr, slowed down,
    The thunderous clouds, hushed down,
    The rustling leaves, quietened down,
    The swaying grass, settled down,
    The flowing ripples, relaxed down.

    Vociferous nature became deafeningly silent,
    All ears to hear her heart out,
    To the turmoil of a breaking bond,
    Exploding within, inside out.

    She wanted to scream, cry aloud,
    But the faintest of sounds didn't leave her mouth,
    On the cold bench, in seclusion she sat,
    Watching the twilight sun,
    Pondering upon the end that was.

    Endings are not as peaceful as sunsets,
    It torments, brimming with regrets.

    MEMORIES NEVER DIE

    Coming from an edifying four walled room,
    Sitting amidst the freshly mown grass,
    Watching the setting sun radiate dew drops,
    Shining like tiny pearls in a vast green ocean,
    Chatting with friends, while the zephyr blows,
    Playing games, solving problems, discussing life...

    Those college days, life's prime,
    A sweet confluence, flowing like rhyme,
    Forever shall remain that golden time,
    Because memories never die.

    Walking together among the verdant canopies,
    Narrating to each other the events of the day,
    Bragging about the unfettered fun had,
    Cribbing about all annoying beings,
    Planning and executing merry dinner parties,
    Satiating the camera roll with countless pictures...

    Those college days, life's prime,
    Brimming the brain with flashes sublime,
    Forever shall remain that golden time,
    Because memories never die.

    Years and years down the line,
    I shall stand near the window pane,
    Watching bushy lanes, sipping a cup of tea,
    Recalling those countless halcyon days,
    Recollecting incidents, happy and sad,
    Reliving all those moments again and again...

    Those college days, life's prime,
    Recreating in my mind the glorious paradigm,
    Forever shall remain that golden time,
    Because memories never die.

    A Spenserian Sonnet inspired by @a_gentilischi 's recent post, based on the following conversation between Sheldon and Penny from The Big Bang Theory:

    "Penny: So, I guess the only thing that actually stays the same is that things are always changing.
    Sheldon: Interesting. So you're saying the inevitability of change might be a universal constant."
    __________________________________________________
    CHANGE

    Our world isn't always the same,
    But continually subject to change,
    It is the essence of life's game,
    Derailing some plans I arrange.

    Perpetual transitions, I find strange,
    I fill with agony and fear,
    With constancy I wish to exchange,
    Change happening year after year.

    Then, in the sky, I see the moon appear,
    Differing in shape, with each passing day,
    Embracing all it's phases with cheer,
    Hopeful of its life being gleeful and gay.

    Change is imminent, it's a universal constant,
    Change enables mankind to become persistent.

    Artificiality

    Concealed behind a mask,
    Pretences the task,
    Full of deceit,
    Bound to cheat,
    Two faced
    Fraud.
    I find facades all around.

    Inspired (somewhat loosely) by Arya Stark and Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, whom I've grown to admire.

    BATTLE SCARS

    She was showered with dolls to play with,
    She chose to swing a sword instead,
    She was deluged with gems & jewels of all sorts,
    But facts & knowledge she decided to embed.

    "One day I'll fight in wars & conquer lands,
    I will lead & rule the world", she said,
    "You've no place in the field of combat,
    Queens don't govern in this realm", they yelled.

    Realization dawned, her strife was battlefields beyond,
    To her parochial foes, in perfection she had to respond.
    She trained, she whimpered, lessons she learned,
    Kept faith in herself, to austerity she was inured.

    Her rivals she overthrew, her challengers humbled,
    The Queen she'd been crowned, provincial views crumbled.
    Sitting on her throne, her scars with grace she flaunted,
    Scars, which reminded of the forces she had shunned.

    FIRE AND ICE

    Long ago, deep inside,
    A tiny spark ignited,
    Bickering and flickering.
    Fueled by passion,
    Driven by ambition,
    The spark metamorphosed,
    And a blazing fire roared.

    Meanwhile, in a distant land,
    Mighty forces amassed,
    Coalescing into a rigid mass,
    The cold ice they formed.
    The fire growing fierce,
    The ice though, no less,
    The fire far and oblivious of,
    The winter that was coming.

    The time had come,
    Fire and ice encountered,
    Each trying to devour the other.
    The fire burned bright,
    Seeking to weaken the ice,
    But it only grew stronger,
    Subduing the fire's tough fight.

    The ice, no more rigid,
    Doused the flaming fire,
    Flowing over its wreckage,
    Washing away the dead fire.

    ADIÓS 2020

    Good bye to the past,
    We said in the year last,
    Eager to do wonders,
    We were firm and steadfast.
    An invisible being was born,
    It started to multiply and warn,
    Harbinger of a global pandemic,
    Leaving the world to mourn.

    The virtual became real,
    Safety and precaution the deal,
    We adorned face masks and shields,
    And sanitized from head to heal.
    Confined to our home,
    Nowhere could we roam,
    Family and friends adding colours,
    To life that seemed monochrome.

    My bunch of friends, the best,
    To have them I feel blessed,
    Sharing memes, reliving memories,
    Together acing every test.
    Keeping close though far,
    Discussing stories there are,
    From lands of Mirzapur and Westeros,
    To Harry Potter's forehead scar.

    The year's reached the finish mark,
    With moments of both dullness and spark,
    Time again to say good bye to the past,
    But only to the gloomy and dark.
    In the new year this weekend,
    Abundant hope and joy I send,
    Cheers to new beginnings,
    As it is never the end.

    LA 21 HOMO SAPIENO
    (The 21st Century Human)

    Presenting a recipe, simple not complex,
    To ace the same, follow these easy steps.

    A cup of smartness,
    A glass of narcissism,
    A spoonful of sugar coated lies,
    A handful of parochialism,
    Chopped and diced,
    Mix till your core deeply fries.

    Slice some judgment,
    Mince some patriarchy,
    Roast some snobbish bullying,
    Broil a helping of intolerance,
    Only for the just and right,
    Serve with a pinch of violent seasoning.

    Behold, rejoice, my fellow earthy crewmen,
    You've now made the 21st century human.

    Petrichor

    The mizzle, the earthy petrichor, you heartily rejoice,
    As the cloud helplessly drenched in pain, shed tears.

    MINERVA

    Wise and insightful,
    Compassionate and kind,
    She was our Minerva,
    Enlightening all our lives.
    A brilliant creator,
    She was gifted with a quill,
    Letters inked sparkling,
    Giving wings to her ardour.
    Her voice, her strength,
    Feeble minds couldn't withstand,
    Violent hurricanes of patriarchy,
    Ruining her zealous castle of sand.

    //Heap of talent,
    Kindled with passion,
    Why then were her dreams crippled?//
