Listen, written on 02132018

It's in a frame because I wrote this for work. The idea here was a surprise date. Your beloved enters the room and sees a console table with #flowers, candles, and this #frame with a #poem asking him/her to listen to what you'll say. That's the photo's peg. Wasn't able to use this for work so I got to use it here. Yay! 💖

#happyvalentinesday, everyone! 💖

B L O T C H E D

I say it's time we
blow this popsicle stand.
You think I'm some delicate
hothouse orchid but

I can take the winter's brusque
kiss or hazard a glance at
desert emptiness
which isn't really
empty at all.

This tessallated life
these repeating tiles
echoing like an Escher print

this goddamn monotony

might just be what kills me
in the end. I thought it would be
the whiskey or the cigarettes

but now I wonder if
the Rorschach test
of my life will read
the same
as my obituary:

a blot that just
repeats my sin
the stains
in perpetuity.

There are mountains, there is river, sky, clouds, you know, everything a poet uses as poetic devices. There is a perspective in a photo and then there is a perception of the poet. I don't know what, how and why these days the poets have confined their thought process to love. Of course love is eternal, but these 'natural metaphors' of a poet are for eternity. 
So, when the river rises from somewhere in the sky, amidst those misty mountains and goes on to quench the thirst of many, revive what is dying and replenish what's remaining, it can not just be love in poet's lines. It has to be more deeper than love, more enticing than romance and more meaningful than something like #wordgasm. .

~Gazes~
He gazes in the sparse light,
As flock of birds take last flight,
He could see really far with the device, 
And sees a bird family reunite, 
Mother bird consoling younger ones' cries,
To my friend I behest,
Let me have a look at the nest.
Let me see the distance the binoc cover,
And I realise the gap I still have with my mother.
As I feel love in my heart when 
i see the mother bird feed its half,
I remember the days with my mother,
She feeding me with her hand and me falling asleep on her lap,
I wished that moment to fly off to my mother and fill that very gap. ~ Pavitra Joshi .

~ Taj Mahal ~

Jannat ka khwab jannat se bhi pak h,
Jahan jannat ka pata nahi, khwab ka vajood h. .

The dream of heaven is more sacred than the heaven itself,
The dream is for real when you can't say about heaven. .

Nudist
_
His love was clothed in
a red checked linen shirt
and honey pressed chinos,
but he never took me on any picnics,
that should have been the first warning sign, love has only ever been and always will be, a nudist.

Washed Off. 
Somebody must have drowned, 
Someone drunk or in agony or just a freak.., The black water of Yumuna takes all in,
The once mighty river is turning back to small creek.

अल्फ़ाज़ नहीं है मेरे पास 
बस अहसास है
वजह नहीं है मेरे पास 
बस रास है, .

देख इसको विचलित मेरा मन 
फिरसे चंचल हो गया,
महक पाके इसकी पिला मेरा मन 
फिरसे हरा हो गया। ©पवित्र जोशी .

There are no words, just feelings; No reason but just liking. Its very view makes my dubious heart hyperactive again; The smell of it makes me green again, gives me a fresh lease of life. .

when that shy
strand of hair 
trembles out of 
your skin. 
slowly

ashamed of its
wanton birth. 
thinking it's an
'unwanted' curse 
you're plagued 
with, making it
your shame, 
a pariah you must
deal with. thinking, 
why on a man, i confirm his 
manhood for a world revolving 
in binaries. but, for a 
woman all i am is a furtive indignity. 
i want you to 
caress it's roots, and 
whisper to them-  i will never let your  birth go in vain by  obliterating you  to satiate howling  bellies of hollow  skeletons floating  around seeking young  flesh to feast upon. 
i will honour you and if i may 
choose to live without you. 
i'll do that under no obligation 
from a world assessing my 
worth from the 
arch of my hips.
or the 
color of my skin. -d.s.

Still I'll cut through the wind, 
reign in glory and sing. 
In my own discourse I'll fly,
Strive and survive in the sky
I'm a kite, attach me with a string
and I'll cut through the wind
Reign in glory and sing! ~ Pavitra Joshi

Make me fly against the wind, attached with a string, Still I'll cut through the wind, reign in glory and sing.

Entry for the #thesoapboxcontest @thesoapboxofficial **There is an odd sense of loneliness,
Of being different.
The world seems to blend in like a rainbow,
The colors falling in harmony.
But mine are different.
The best of both worlds, some say,
Of not having a surreal identity,
An optical illusion,
A beauty for some, a real confusion for others. 
I kneel down with shame,
And I see my own reflection,
A reflection which had become my epiphany,
And I have to decide..
Do I disguise myself forever? 
Or do I embrace my magic, 
And walk as proud as a horse? ** (Sal)

Entry for #thesoapboxcontest  @thesoapboxofficial **A peaceful and tranquil soul,
Beaten by war and 
Driven away from her home,
To the land of the free, they said.. She walked for miles on end,
Leaving her universe behind,
She swam across the oceans,
To what she thought was peace,
But war had taken over this land too,
A war of hateful emotions.

She was not oppressed,
She was never oppressed.

She only ever believed in happiness,
A country, where she could be herself,
A country, that was less of a mess.

But even a strong soul cracks,
Fighting the war on humanity.

Her tears were not of oppression,
Her tears were of a lost hope,
Of a battle lost to loneliness,
And to the worst form of depression.** A tribute to the refugee women fleeing their homes.. #writing #refugees #women #minorities #sadness #loneliness #war #hope #free #freedom #poetry #poets #spilledink #words #writersofinstagram #writers #thesoapboxofficial

**To be proud,
To embrace,
To love and 
To nurture,
To all the relationships built 
solely on culture,

She salutes, and bows down.
She frees her shackles,
And takes off her crown. ***

.
she bathes in albumin at peace
.
sustained in the womb from the war
.
her chalazae, twisting fibers
.
like placenta in utero
.
they will break her open too soon
.
spilling her out onto floorboards
.
without the protection she needs
.
as she survives off her own yolk
.
for nourishment and growth to thrive
.
gone is the thin shell, the thin skin
.
she sleeps in arms of her own
.
she eats in silence, observing
.
their civil war in the coop here
.
and she's ready to spread her wings
