october mubarak



pyaar
jaise sardiyon ki pehli sihran
jaise poonam ka pagal chand
aur chand ki meethi garmahat

hmmm. october three, two thousand and six. or is it seven? somehow dates don't look good in words.
i was wondering what i'll post today. morning helped me. baths have started being a bit cold and my favourite season is just round the corner.
it is in winters that i get some annual bulk, thanks to the layers of clothing i wear. soon i'll be spotted around in woolen caps and woolen shirts and woolen socks and basically, well, a lot of woolies.
though i'm more of a jacket person. i like things with pockets and spaces. the more, the better. they help me store various knick knacks. and also to forget them on the way back home. it was only the last year that i started wearing pullovers a bit.
apart from that much needed bulk, i feel winters are a bit more romantic than the rest of the year. rivalled only by a brief spurt of monsoon. well, i guess i should not be saying this actually :)
hmmm, october three, two thousand and six. somehow days do begin to look good in winters.
love
like winter's first shiver
like poonam's mad moon
and moon's sweet warmth

(poonam is the night of full moon. i didnt know how to put it there. starry, sunshine, as always u'll have to make do with my troubled translation.)

Happy October

Hi! thanks for dropping by, again :-)
Very lovely pics to go with the poetry. Sad, the way sometimes you cant find the apt word for translation ...
But I am not at all a winter person ... I keep shivering in 4 layers of woollens ... brrrr....
As for dreams ... one of these days I am going to share a lovely poem I found on the net (I am just waiting for the inspiration to strike so I can translate it while retaining its beauty :-) )

Beautiful paintings and words to go with it.you definitely are a winter person. I like winter too.Here in california it does not get too cold , most you will need is a light jacket or a sweater.I have lived through harsh winters in Chicago and Michigan.the snow looks beautiful when you are liooking at it from your window.

adi said...

atul & starry: glad to see so many winter ppl around ;)i wish to see some snow someday.
