I am excited to introduce you to my first ebook on lulu.
It’s a short collection of seven poems about relationships, heartbreak and self-cure.
Here’s a sneak peak inside:

After three years of sunshine,
there finally were dark clouds
no sweat, no headaches
just sweet melody of dripping water
on the open armed leaves
and open mouthed grass
taking in the life
after three years of death
yellow to green
yellow to blue
the anger of sky
is now a cuddle
for everything that is covers
Remember that pianist who said that if he did not practice everyday he would know, if he did not practice two days, the critics would know, after three days, his audiences would know.
-Taken from Zen in the art of writing by Ray Bradbury
Once I read this quote it hit me hard like a brick. I know I have been lagging behind in my resolution of writing everyday. It’s been one of those phases, when you tend to give up and its hard to get back there.
From today, I am going to try to stand back up and I will make sure I don’t step on that banana skin again.
It is dark, it is stormy
an old man walks through the room
a cane in his hand
he blindly walks around
but lits no candles on the table
the widow at the end of the street
the dark stormy night
a chill makes her shudder
but she has no candles on her table
the broken family on the adjacent street
has a lady crying
in her gloomy room
the wind howls outside
but there are no candles on her table
Let the moon hit its apex,
when the world falls into silence,
hear my call. The darkness
will consume you.
