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. I happen to see there a rush, She was getting somebody else’s spouse. Pain in my heart was heavier, Then the bag full of gifts. Roses in my hand had fallen, Like the leaves from a tree in autumn. 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 »

Wish You A Happy New Year 2017: A Poetic Tribute to My Readers

happy new year 2017 the style symphony

The sun rises and then sets A lamp lightens up and fades, Moments arise and then die Falls edify to give life a try. A year begins and then ends But life sustains it’s existence. Old Blossoms shed, but birds still chirp new songs Fresh breeze survives over all fouls and wrongs. Let the light of life glisten over dark, And our souls shine with a luminous spark. 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! With set limits of rhythm, rhymes and syllable count My words are clustered around an ornate wall mount. My sagacity is seized in line lengths Cocooned in a nutshell, I am subdued strength. 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 »

Our Pricey Politicians— A Clerihew Poems Collection

clerihew poem the style symphony

Today, I came across a trending hashtag on twitter #BandBajaoNetasKi which was about making fun of our politicians, or roasting them. It brought a smile on my face. Sometimes back, I learnt about a similar genre of English poetry named Clerihew Poem, which is written in the very same manner. “A Clerihew is a playful, four-line biographical poem which talks about a famous personality poking fun at him/her. The first line ends with the name of the person, and the second ... Read More »

Masks on Mask

masks on mask

This poem is written for #IndiSpire Edition 133 prompt ‘Mask’. Holding it in my hand, the whole night, I hid myself in the masquerade and posed right! Trying to hide my face, I held it tight, The mask was quite apt for that party night! Different people — known or unknown, Smiling, exhibiting etiquettes, mature and all grown! Hidden visages behind glossy, shiny synthetic faces, Concealed blemishes, camouflaged flaws sans any traces! I tried to pretend decorous with poise and ... Read More »

Love is like a seed which can sprout even on the rocks!

I have written my style of poetic fiction after so long with my own graphics and soundcloud song in my voice. ... Read More »

The Day Will Come!

daughters day

I thought it was the doom’s day and I was lying on my death bed. But, when I open my eyes, I saw the doctor smiling and saying in distorted voice— “You are the bravest woman I have ever seen !” I tried to smile, but couldn’t. He was calling me a brave woman, a woman who was weak, underweight and anemic, who was not even able to ask “why me?”. My doctor said— “while the whole world cries before ... Read More »

Ushering the Moon🌛

girl and moon

Today is International Women’s day and being a woman, that too, a mother of two grown-up girls, I wish to express my feelings and concern for all the daughters of India who are trying hard to make their mark in this man’s world. Every girl is an achiever in her special way, but it hurts when she is being stopped in her way to achieve. I wish all the young women and both my daughters the moon of their share. ... Read More »

A Wailing Soul: Humanity Weeps in Haryana

haryana murthal violence

The entire country is at shock, not only for what has happened in Haryana but also for the people denying the facts shamelessly. I mourn for the ignored ‘gang-rape victims’ of Murthal and for the people to whom humanity never existed. It’s disgusting that people of the entire state are trying to submerge the issue under the rumors of mere political outrage. 🙁 For a state having the dubious distinction for the worst gender ratio amidst all the Indian states; ...
