of glimpses in the dark...

...





...

the dance of the flickering flame
swaying gently hand-in-hand with the breeze.
one bright flicker, one dark shadow
one casting the other, breathing life into each other.

playing a little game with their backs to each other,
one not meant to see the other.
there's glimpses of a beauty hitherto unseen
between the swaying of the flame
between the shadows of the night

one look, one long moment, one small story.

...

'seasons greetings' folks...may this year bring with it all the joy and happiness that we deserve. i know that i have been M.I.A for a while now. but then, i always come back. and here i am once again, with stories that need to be told. the Shah of Blah, the storyteller itches to speak all the time...but of late the words have been hard to find. thankfully i can feel them coming back to me.

so i guess i shall see you all soon.

One night.there will be a knock on your door. 4 masked man will enter. and will ask you to switch off your cellphone. Upon which they will beat you up unconcsious. Till one of them is once again ruffled up by a rage.and beat you up more. you will never know who they are. or why they were there. but i guarantee you this. they will come.
