Life is an Art!

life is an art painting by vineeta mishra the style symphony

Where lives art? In a painter’s palette or in a poet’s heart? Or, it dwells in a mother’s cooking and seasonings? Or, it lies in a bird’s chirping when the day starts! Today, I’m sharing one of my poems written years back along with a painting ‘Bodhisattva’ by my sister Vineeta. Art is life portrayed over a vivid canvas of desires, It’s envisioned with a variance, lit with inner fire. From the incarnations of Lord to nature’s numerous roles, From ... Read More »

Seven Cirlces : A Sad Fictional Poem

love no more

After making a settled living, I returned to my town. What did I know life was planning? Which would turn my world upside down! Getting down from bus, I quickly ran to her house.

She was in red, Like I first ... Read More »

Just like a Karan Johar Film

seasons of love

It was a miracle, To what I had spectacle. Everything was like a dream, Just like a Karan Johar film. At dawn, she came, My Angel in heart’s frame. Pulling a Mont Blanc’s suitcase, And holding a black bag in hand. Beholding the crescent moon I had praise, To let me witness paradise on this land. A huge city was quite, She wore a turtle-neck milk-white. Upon that a bright pink sweater, Her smile changed the weather. It was no ... Read More »

Here arrives Janus, the god of all new beginnings, It’s time to ... Read More »

I Am Poetry

I am poetry, the unstoppable expression Capriciously I flow, with my vivid emotions. Indoctrinated, but always limitless Though carved out of time yet timeless!

I want to be poetry, cherished, but not trashed Flawless and flowing, but with you I never clashed. Poised, beautiful, yes! I am ... Read More »
