SILENT MESSAGE

So simple & delicate

With a diminutive life span

But always pleasant & willing to share

All little possessions

No hard feelings even when plucked

Leaving an aura of glee

To all eyes around

Whether on or off!!

ImageImage

Love you, little flowers

For in thy subtle lives

I sense the touch of the Creator

& a silent message

CAREFREE DAYS

Her world is so lovely

Filled with small big things,

She makes all around her blissful

With her charm, innocence & friskiness

Reminding a butterfly or a blossom

Image

Let the allure nest in her

Her world remain angelic & frivolous

As it ought be

Hope the eyes of the devils 

Who inhabit the earth

Never cast upon her

Let her remain carefree 

Naughty & bubbly 

Through out her playful years!!

HAPPY WEEKEND TO ALL FROM ROSE

FAREWELL TO A BRILLIANT ACTOR & A MAN WITH DETERMINATION – SURENDRANATHA THILAKAN

“YOU CAN KILL ME, BUT NOT DEFEAT ME!!”

A man who was passionate about his art, volatile in his behaviour, highly refined in his skills, and shamelessly immodest about his abilities – That describes the great actor, Surendranatha Thilakan, who was an unparalleled stalwart in the film industry of my country.

He straddled the words of both arthouse flms and mainstream cinema, with unparalleled commitment and verve. He was also a darling of the masses who challenged majoritarian norms in society. He has bagged many awards & would still live through his characters….

But, the last few years had been extremely stressful for the great actor that perhaps landed him in bad health. His inability to conform to the dubious double-standards of the industry saw him being “banned” from films. Unfazed by the bans, he went back to his first love, theatre, and appeared in more than 80 stages across the state. However, some of the “new generation” directors and actors defied the ban and brought him back to pivotal roles in their films. In fact, there were more in the pipeline when he suffered a stroke and fell unconscious. & it ended up in his death this morning…

The whole day, all channels were dedicated to the stalwart & the whole state was with honour for him…

Those who led wars against him, also joined others with tonnes of praises… Thilakan himself has said, “I know to act only in reels, not in real life”

Hats off to the talented actor & the great individual, who has withdrawn from the reel of life itself!!

TRUST

Trust is that crystal

Its transparency

Hard-earned & Time-Tested

Yet so fragile

To be shattered

By a moment’s lapse

Once crumbled

A  lifetime’s toil

Won’t prove enough to fix it

So keep it secure

Barricaded with sincerity & loyalty!!

HAPPY WEEKEND TO ALL FROM ROSE

THE GIRL WITH THE DESIRE OF A HORNBILL

Published September 18, 2012 by aquaturtleme

The girl who loved rain

And its mesmerising beauty

Was left to spend the prime

Of her youth in the deserts….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The stage when

Life has its colours

Dreams attach wings

& emotions catch fire

 

It would have been beautiful

If there were cloudbursts too

To quench her passion &

To bring out the cadence in her..

 Image

She misses the moist breeze

Rainstorms & the murky envelope

The rhythm of the raindrops,

& the rock ‘n’ roll of the downpour

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But accepts the sandstorms,

Hot zephyr & the barrenness around

Because its her life

& the times can never be got back

 

So she endures the drabness of the aura

Devoid of all bloom & charm

But preserves in her heart &mind

The faddish celerity of the naughty falls!!

ADIEU!!!!

(ONE OF THE CLICKS WHEN WE WERE IN MY HOMELAND… ITS FROM THE EVE BEACH IN KOVALAM)

Sunsets are amazingly beautiful

With its colour transparencies

Absorbed in the charm it radiates

Seldom do we remember

That it has stolen

Another day from our life!!!

HAPPY WEEKEND FROM ROSE….
