Walking the Walk

I stand before 2 roads
Hoping it will lead me to my yellow brick road
Eventually leaving me at my dream destination
Only that I don’t have a dream or a destination
Let alone a way to reach the way to reach it.

Maybe life isn’t about reaching a happy place
It is about being happy whilst while we reach it.
The only way to know for sure is by walking the path and 
not forgetting to
enjoy the breath taking view.
Look straight~like the eyes of god. 

( The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines. Frame of reference is 'The Cross-roads' quoted from Kwesi Brew's poem, The Mesh. For Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads)


  1. "It is about being happy whilst while we reach it." I think that is a very wise statement. Lovely thoughts.

  2. Indeed, life is a thing that can only be done by living.

  3. Be happy where you are on the way to unknown.

  4. It is about being happy whilst while we reach it.

    This is such a valid observation about life.

  5. I'm like you, I never really had a dream destination. I just went where the doors were open (and the dog led?).
    BTW my profile picture is of me sitting beside the Yellow Brick Road talking with Mr. Tin Man.

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

Karuppu Da

Life in the Black and White Justified , aligned to be professional Where is my Bookman Old Style?
A checkered Chess A pawn marching forward To become Queen At the end of it all.
My Dog’s Coat is Black and White too! I pet her inconsistencies And pat mine too We move forward W(h)ining & Winning.
A dash of grey Can blot the white But can never dim the dark And that is why I am a Black Queen y’all.

( Karuppu means black and Da is synonymous to dude in tamil)
