“Musing about Memories”

Well, I love to travel
And to be more specific,
not every trip is pleasurable
I suppose you agree.
Some offer sweet memories
whereas some very dismal.
Some are bestowed with beauty
whereas some confer only knowledge,
in a journey on a flight or through a voyage.

But, behind every tour
I ought to undertake,
I make sure-
I prepare some time
to jot down what fascinated me,
The Most.
While something queer or
not easily remembered
would effortlessly catch my eye.
There, I would immediately
capture it, nonetheless
for the rest of my journey
it’ll be intriguing me unless
I discover something more exotic.

May it be an amusing show
or an antique piece in a museum
or the authentic food it serves
or the culture it presents
or an animal to illustrate
or a home of an author or
perhaps just a hill or a mountain
or maybe an art or an artist
performing to display,
or a variety of things
even the sky under a shade;
of a city or a village,
every small or big experience
seems very special to that place.

The forming of a bond
while it lasts,
in a photograph or in a memoir
had my musing in-
reminiscing long attachment
to every place I visited
where I chose a special
memory as worthy as I’ve made it:
To cherish for long years as,
an indestructible bond of
solidarity through travelling
from place to place.

Every journey becomes
a tale and in coming years
all the chronicles will turn into
lively motion picture
floating in the waves of ‘life’.
I am yet to be discovering
many unseen-unheard places
To be sure of one thing;
to carry my camera and
a notebook with a pen.
To fulfil every thirst of
making sweet connections
to people and places.

~an impromptu poem for #NaPoWriMo day 30

Prompt Day 30:

Today I choose to upload a poem I wrote for‘s 11th day prompt : April 11th“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”

Ahh its the end of the marvelous month! Little did we think, how time flew by so quickly, everyone involved in writing and publishing poems on blogs, reading other poet’s musings, complimenting/criticising each other, sharing and encouraging their fellow participants everyday, on every amazing prompt by Maureen and and yet we are here on the last day. Thank you Maureen for having to organise an excellent event for a month and for gathering such a great audience, most beloved bloggers and poets from all over the globe and thank you for giving us this opportunity to meet these incredibly talented bunch of individuals! This was my first time and I have to say it was such a fun! To be honest I missed the first three days in the beginning of the month LOL but since the 4th day it was all like a responsibility, to wake up in the morning to check the website for the new prompt and later post a poem at the end of the day, a challenge we all did successfully I guess! Going to miss all of my fellow participants a.k.a all-time-supporters but hope we’ll meet next year on the same platform for spending another amazing, memorable time letting our creative juice flow into our masterpieces! Love you all, sending best wishes for the year ahead.

“Savour: the sheer flavour of beauty”

As the aroma of a perfume and a cologne
has a tenacious sojourn over vestures,
has both a perennial sway persistency
and equally a feverish lingering adequacy,
two dawdling over, in closets and malls,
expecting for purchasers and sponsorships
while one has intense, strong odour,
viz. ‘eau de cologne’
the other is light, pleasantly sweet fragrance,
viz. ‘eau de toilette’
and if one must wonder the contrast in each-
of which is popularly called by the name “scent”;
then one must learn the variance, the quality,
the endurance, the importance of fragrance,
chiefly the use of the crucial integrant in a
sophisticated dressing up process- ‘savour’
as it is the garnishing flavour, the very ingredient
which adds a finishing touch to the nines.

~an impromptu poem for #NaPoWriMo day 26

Prompt Day 26: And now for our daily prompt (optional, as always). A couple of days ago, we played around with hard-boiled similes. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that contains at least one of a different kind of simile – an epic simile. Also known as Homeric similes, these are basically extended similes that develop over multiple lines. Perhaps unsurprisingly, they have mainly been used in epic poems, typically as decorative elements that emphasize the dramatic nature of the subject (see, by way of illustration, this example from Milton’s Paradise Lost). But you could write a complete poem that is just one lengthy, epic simile, relying on the surprising comparison of unlike things to carry the poem across. And if you’re feeling especially cheeky, you could even write a poem in which the epic simile spends lines heroically and dramatically describing something that turns out to be quite prosaic. Whatever you decide to compare, I hope you have fun extending your simile(s) to epic lengths.

My readers may think I’m a materialistic girl, lol just to inform you I’m not, at least not as much as you thought but yeah I have a good taste for fashion though. Actually, I’m very fond of perfumes and this post is dedicated to one of my most favourite things I would never get tired of anyway! A fun fact that I always find it funny- These perfumes are called “toilet water“, although we don’t say much but doesn’t it sounds odd, interestingly(in case you didn’t know) the name is derived from the French word “Toilette” which means “a small piece of cloth”. Today’s prompt based poem has a Homeric simile and well if nothing else, I have glorified aromas poetically, elegantly in my poem. The entire poem is just one sentence, including all sorts of pauses and breaks in between but thoroughly specifies the simile. The differentiation of cologne and perfume is mostly described here, Eau de cologne and Eau de toilette The true essence of fragrance is believed to have the sophisticated principle of showing elegance and grandeur in a person. Sobriety/solemnity, it all matters right! Hope you enjoyed the poem… Check out my Pinterest collection, I’m sure if you are a fan of colognes and perfumes you’ll definitely love the aesthetically pleasing board!
