Writers and Novelists

Words flow through a hand
writing its own mind with a pen
A new page is written everytime
as each new day dawns.
I flow with each and every move
of that invisible fingers

Open the index that points to
a sweet twist in my chapter
Wherein I have asked you
to join me to unfold new pages
So that we can reproduce
a sequel in the coming days ahead.

Among the ups and downs of my life ,
I had my best writings
to be reproduced into editions
for generations to come.
I still ...
I still live through them
So never ever repent..
even if you hear someone say that
"My Chapters have been closed"

- dedicated to all writers

The Mirror Outside

She lay spread on bed
As silent as she can be
Idle and possessed
I collected her as I got up
Carefully pulling out the loops
That resulted due to the love
Between the hairs at night
Mockingly , I tied her up

I opened the door for her
To get wet in the cool shower
I moved my fingers through her
And loosened her from the clutch
I watched the sight...
Gracious !
She fell cascading in elegance
And when the cool water trickled her
She soaked  herself into moistness
Doving in the shampoo producing rich lather
I bathed her fresh like a morning star

She then cuddled in between the cotton treads
Peeping now and then to the light outside
Frizzling slow...
She dried herself under the Sun
Allowing the heat to penetrate into her
Pampered in the warmth of love

Suddenly the cool breeze swarmed
Into the holes between the strands
Of her hair, unveils the beautiful face
That’s hidden behind the thin long screens
Scrubbing out the scents from the hair
That been bathed with rosewater touch
I smelled the fragrance closing my eyes
Indulging in the sweetness of tenderness

Each time I hold her soft body in my hands
I felt tender passion dissolving in
Each time she brushed on my face
I remembered pleasant moments
Being a delicate part of my body
She responds to every pain I incur
I know that she cares more for me
Breaking loose and in size reduce
Ready to hides my tears,when low
Or shines with glow when I 'm joyous
And this is how she talks with me.
I never seen such friend who heeds
To every feelings that I undergo ,
Displaying or making sure that I read

I brushed aside my wavy sassy lover
That knows how I feel in her close presence
I shook my head and beamed thinking
Of the woman in me who loves being pampered
With the same soft touch of care and love
I realize that I need to tie her up once again
A secret brief lock....
As she is my best Mirror outside

Halloween Party at Night

Lighted Pumpkins on the doorway
Invites witches to come and play
Wandering on brooms stick on the sky
Zoom Zoom and Zoom ,they fly

I was seated in a dim lighted room
With hunched back and deadly groomed
I slowly sucked in my thick red tomato soup
From a big bowl of scary dots and loops

Knock Knock Knock, I heard some noise
Crooked broken voices of girls and boys
Receiving the signal, I quickly gathered
My baskets with monster chocolate and fled

Hello Hello and Hello..we are in
Come let us  party for Halloween
From door to door, we go and call
Tagging for party friends ,short and tall

We scare and scare all through the night
Those who were caught on our sight
They stood and looked at us kids
Snaring at us with their wry smile undid

Witches or skeleton, we need no such dress
And telling there's yet no monster better than us

The Story of Rapunzel's Hair

Long Long ago, I grew long to flow
Wavy and sassy , chit chat as I go
I brush the soft walls on the towers
That measures my height as I reach lower
I am bathed in Lukewarm water
With natural herbs and natural colors
I am pampered with nourishing coconut oils
Carefully and neatly tied up to coil
My long golden mane with colorful ribbons
Adorned with flowers ,yellow and crimson
I am loved and taken care of so well
By a beautiful maiden named Rapunzel
I played messenger helping her find
Her true love role playing from behind
Up and down , In and out I go
Providing a only pathway to below
Until the wicked witch struck me upon
Cutting my beauty in two , one half down
Held wickedly on the hands of the witch
My other half on Rapunzel who's been ditched
I wander with her in the lonely woods
Unknown of the spell cast upon her only good
Finally, a rescue was bestowed through a Dove
To bring back my true long self and her True Love

Love and get loved - The story of Rapunzel's hair rescued through the Dove
One thing I loved about Rapunzel's hair is that she pampered her hair with love and affection which drove her to get healthier and long hair.I am not a Rapunzel but I can do what she does to her Hair [ pampering my hair to save what is left now :( ]

Life is fun when viewed from a different perspective ."Put yourself in other's shoe so you may know their pain" is a well known proverb. Now ,let me put it in a different way."Put yourself on the other side of the world say a dream world so that you may  know how beautiful your life is like a poetic world " . Chill !! :)

Shape Poems - A amalgamation of big brand Cars to ride with ...

Shape Poems are a little tricky.They can be fun to be played with and also at the same time ,it is a little time consuming since we got to derive at a shape with our final outcome.They provide more fun especially to the children who gets attracted to patterns and shape and learning to write poems using this form of poetry can bring more involvements in literature.

You can know more about this form of poetry through these links

Let's respect this cycle of change and repetition of the same

I ain't no Beauty - Poetry for the soul that needs some charm

Prompt from Poets United
I ain't no Fairy Tale Princess
Though some beauty I do possess
I'aint taking about white skin and red lips
which portrays beauty that a princess keeps
Though like Cinderella , I wait for a stardom
to marry a prince who searches for me to come
To awake me from my Sleep, as deep as a sea
 Fighting the evil to breaks my curse free
Like Snow White, I lay on coffin  for true love
until to be awakened by a Prince kiss  now 
I ain't no beauty to be saved like a Prince would
Falling in love by looks and does what he should
I am a framed bones and flesh coated neatly by skin
Which expands when fat and shrinks when thin
In case, you can't accept whats in store
I ain't the one you look for or need anymore

Haiku - CHARM

Golden sun flower
Thick inside, Thins outside charmed
By Sun's same beauty

Haiku - Poise

The Fall of the Falls
Calls upon hidden stories

Leaf lays poised on ground

Of his life through fall

Haiku - Hypnotic

No drugs , No tablets
Just a brush over my hairs
Hypnotic , I rest

Prompt : Hypnotic from Haiku Heights

Hosting a Free Giveaway in " Get Your Memories Digitized " sponsored by My Memories Suite. For limited period only.

I always have been a curious about the word Hypnotism .Like I have already said, mysterious things tickle me always and I search and research ,sometimes blogging them and sometimes nagging at them ..phew (scratching  my eyebrows ) a little of hypnotism here

Hypnotism in a simple word is a state of trance while fully awake.How does it sound? In most hypnotism , people always feel deep relaxation and are highly suggestible.Moreover , when someone is hypnotizing you , he would have your mind under his control.You will accept his suggestions and his ways.As I write this, I can see myself recalling the bockbuster "Inception" movie (some how they are different though the idea seemed similar).I happen to stumble upon this self-hypnosis video and tried it .I found it to be a bit sleep inducing by tricking my eyes .

Haiku - Kiss

A Kiss, hundred times
Caters the needs of young ones
Partakes Parent Birds 

Prompt: "Kiss" from Haiku Heights .

Darkle sky ,whose sketch
Made your gloomy face smile 
Half-moon lit night

Know about the " Inside Of The Moon "   .Moon whether full and half  always inspires us to dream and write more .....

Windmill of thoughts
Swirls my memories back
Nostalgic feelings

I always have these feelings whenever you stumble upon something familiar that brings back a pleasant memories.The five senses mix and mingle to rewind you to those beautiful days.To name some , I always prefer to say the smells of mud when fresh rains starts, the favourite dishes, photo albums and few places which resembles to mine .Many out there will have the similar feelings too..

Sigh!!..How I wish to adore the pleasant past of childhood !

old and new
the storage boxes
of remembrance

the old tickles our mind
and asks "do you remember me?
that old books on the library,
the aroma of the sand when drenched in rain,
scented flowers brushing your nose
and mama's recipe , my favorite dish"

The other end the new slowly hangs on to a place
carefully sealing itself under the neural jelly
adding and mingling with the old
to be recalled again as a whole
when my nose buds feels the aroma
as my brain start researching
what's the ingredient of the smell is  ...

Author details

I find it easy to portray me as a Poet which I found out during my writing journey. Having a degree in Engineering, I found myself quite well in fixing pieces of words together and getting them published.

What is a poetry? If some one asks me this question, I have two answers with me.The former being "Poetry is an ART where we paint the pictures with our words" and the latter is "Poetry is my self-expression".  Here I mean self -expression because I try to relate (fantasize ) myself with the characters I write taking into account all aspects of life .
My Blogs
Inside My Poem Book - the name was born for tagging it in Google search
Perpetual Mind - this name says exactly what  I blog , all that buzzes in my Mind

Apart from my Blogs "Inside My Poem Book ", which is my debut start of Blog writing Poems followed by Perpetual Mind , wherein I blog Articles and write Reviews , I have also Published my Works both Online and in Print.

"Vande Mataram" -the Songs of the Indian Soul

"Vande Mataram"
this musical words
cuts chords of the string
covering the soft walled hearts
to let out that feeling
"to be Free..."

This land of Bharatam
stands now on its own feet
having its own breathe of
" Freed air "

Unforgettable legend
reminds each one of us
still alive on this mud 
the days of shed bloods
countless number of tears
and unanswered prayers

Stand now to
the words of our leaders
spread the light and
have the will
to celebrate this day
answering those 
shed bloods and tears
to live each passing day
"Vande Mataram"

Indian flag comprises of three colors saffron,white and green in equal proportions.On the middle is the wheel in navy blue color comprising of 24 spokes and this Emblem design is adapted from the Lion Capital of Ashoka at Sarnath on January 26, 1950.The ratio of the width of the flag to its length is 2:3 and the diameter of the chakra approximates to three-fourth of the width of the white band of the flag.Indian flag is also called as Trianga.

I could remember my school days, when our principal hosts the flag and we the students, singing the National Anthem song in chorus.She used to pull the flag high and slow and when spread ,showers the rose petals upon her head and the students nearby .It was such a unique look seeing the hosted flag flying pridely to the waves of the brushing breeze.
National Elements
National Tree : Banyan
National Flower : Lotus
National Fruit : Mango
National Animal : Tiger
National Game : Hockey
National Song : Vande Mataram
National Anthem : Jana Gana Mana
Natianl Emblem : The Lion Capital
National Calender : Saka Calender
National Flag : Tiranga

The National Emblem (as seen in the above picture) symbolizes India's commitment to world peace and goodwill. You can see four lions (three in front and the fourth one behind) .The lions symbolizes power, courage and confidence resting on a circular abacus which in turn is girded by four smaller animals named as  guardians of the four directions: the lion in the north, the elephant in the east, the horse in south and the bull in the west. The whole of the abacus rests on a lotus in full bloom meaning the fountain of life and creative inspiration. Below it is inscribed a word /motto 'Satyameva Jayate'  meaning "Truth Alone Triumphs".

a clasp on both hands
tied tightly and
lifting me slowly
above the ground
a transparent wing grew
it grew larger and larger
as I fly higher and higher
swirling like a tornado
I started to shout
laughing hysterically
it was magical
How did I continuously laugh?
10 min
5 min
Hey! enough stop .
It's over
I got down
from the fun fair saucer ride

Exploring Poetry - Rhyming Love that's not my choice

Writing is the best way through which a person can express his thoughts and feelings .The pen /pencil is the paintbrush that the poets uses to create a illusion of objects or thoughts to create a beautiful art with words.Thus poetry is something precious to be shared either by speech or by writing like we do with arts. If you ever ask a kid about poetry, the little one either comes up with 

Twinkle .Twinlke little star
How I wonder what you are
"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."

Anything or Everything that Rhymes is a poetry for a kid (I used to rhyme poems for that effect).Without Rhyming, a poetry book is not fulfilled , IMP .Welcoming everyone who stumbles upon this post on  "Exploring Poetry " prompt "RHYMING"

How to write a Rhyming poetry :
  1. Choose the topic or idea about what you want to write and just write in a free pattern
  2. Arrange the lines in groups of 2 or 4 or 6 or 8  in even numbers
  3. Organize the sentences and words to form a meaningful line
  4. Add a tune or rhyme to the end of each sentence
  5. For rhyming words ,you can either choose dictionary at home or at online like Rhyming Zone
  6. Choose any Rhyming pattern and go with it all along the poem ( AAAA, ABAB, AABB,ABBA)
The below poem is written in the rhyme scheme (AABBBCC)

Love that's not my choice

Love was not my choice until I met you
My heart melted with the love you brew
Slowly hooked
Steadily captured
Steeply engraved
It spoiled my sleep at night
Made your wrong moves right

In Love, maths of one plus one is still one
Forgetting all ,drowning in love minding none
Complex dealings
Imaginary floatings
Under Real feelings
It secured a place in my heart tight
Taming me to a person so quite

Love , ah this potion is so strong
I confess that I cant hold it long
Eyes playful
Oh!Life lulls
Longs sedatives for this twinge
Yours unforgettable clinch

Love - a small but a strong word
Commonly used and always heard
Staring as it comes
Striking the heart drum
Electrifies through rhythm
The music mingles the breath forever
Staying with us and leaving never

Show me a person who never Loves
He is Heartless - maybe someone has stolen it from him
He can never find the truth 
Until he believes that he too can love
 ©Umamaheswari Anandane

The Moon stars the night cloud as he plays ....

Clouds whisper to the moon
as he passes her tanned face
curtains her with white smoke
to rave themselves in a secret place
I, breathe in silence
peeping over the window sill
watching them play
I stay

He moves swiftly unveiling her face
enriching her looks with sparkling stars
As she dazzled in her new diamond lace
he saw her shying away from his hold
This love and play they had
would make any poet express their joy
for finding an artistic display
lay gracefully at bay

I accompanied their show
with my canvas and brush
painting the moonlit beau
Seeing me stare at them
they send their sigh as breeze
soothing me to sleep with ease

As the moonlit night sublimes to dawn
I awoke with a yawn
as dews brushed my skin
eager to look the night princess
engraved in a paper by pen
through my poetic fingers

She has revived from my words
"Shining Again"

What is this Ottava Rima?.It is a rhyming stanza of Italian origin usually for long poems.Many poeters such as Boccaccio , Poliziano , Boiardo Spenser, Milton, Yeats and  Lord Byron have successfully used this form in their poems.The Ottava Rima in its current form was created by the Italian poet Giovanni Boccaccio, who used it first in Theseide.

The Filostrato of Giovanni Boccaccio

To write a Ottava Rima  :
  1. As the name says ,thItalian musical term "ottava" is related to the Italian word for eight: otto.  and "rima"means rhyme in Italian meaning that it is a stanza of eight lines which has rhyming scheme.
  2. It is usually written in  iambic pentameter.Iambic foot means that has two syllables the first lightly stressed, and the second heavily stressed. Pentameter is five of those feet to a line. 
  3. From the above two points, we have to write a poem of eight lines in five feet and each foot has the stress on the second syllable.
  4. The rhyming pattern of each stanza consists of three alternate rhymes and one double rhyme, following the ab-ab-ab-cc pattern.It is said that the Italian poets used the female rhymes to these patterns.
As child ,I wished for things toying my eyes  (a) 
Some worked with tantrums ,every child's weapon  (b) 
To seek warmth and attention this child relies  (a) 
Shield , I  snail into my Mother's curtain  (b) 
As adult , I grabbed eyes to make magpies    (a) 
Ruling the world as if my own cabin  (b) 
I had my own drama and scenes to be  (c) 
Yet rooted to the  ground, pleased to agree  (c) 

A bit of my grand passed to my mother  (a) 
Who then passed it to my daughter through me (b) 
I wanted my kid to grow with laughter  (a) 
With the positives that I  learned to gee   (b) 
Growing from mistakes , part of  another (a) 
Clung onto my generations to be (b) 
To follow my journey , quenching my steam (c)
In search to end my half completed dream (c)

I tried to follow the meter and rhyming pattern.The foot varies according to the rhyme , not so iambic .Post your views below as comments on the same .If You have a Ottava Rima of your own , do leave your links in the comment section below .
