The smell of onions, when fried until golden brown
The aroma of chai patti, yet to be bathed in milk
The scent of stiff pages, when an old friend is drawn out
The savour of basmati, coming to a boil on low flame
The whiff of saffron, pinching a dish with subtle hue.
The incense of prayers, that vapour up from our roof
The tang of lemonade, after a heavy drain at workplace
The perfume of petrichor, sprayed on balcony walls.
These smell of home.

Not all are willing to purchase some of them tonight

In sizes of lemons and melons they're pyramided
Test with your fist and let them graciously stem tonight

There's no necessity to sanitize or to take extra care
Let them go viral, don't you fearfully condemn tonight.

Would that make lockdown any better, Lennesha?
I am not a gem, just a wrapped poem tonight.

the last candle in the hall
after the rest have melted
onto their respective pillows
when we speak of threads and oil.

The Tangled Tangent YESTERDAY AT 19:55

Summer has returned
like a movie that was demanded
of being made into a sequel
Holidays were exciting,
much awaited to escape into
water amusement parks.
Splashing mischeif, eyes spark.
Grin brightens with the sun's tan.
Warmth just enough to flick a nap
Sweat drips while melons attract.
Summer was back then, awesome.
Renamed as lockdown, it turned gruesome.
This sequel has become a flop show.
Should I wait for a better version
or reminisce the original, called,
the first love of last summer?

On somedays, you make me
feel like the summer shade
where you die to rest your
whole self under.
On other days, you make me
feel like an autumn leaf
which you just see fly away
from your shade.

Begin with a brick
a block of concrete
the rows will keep rising
until your sight is fixed on it.
Shown a way to follow
or thrown away to explore.

I bid you farewell, like I leave
the check-in baggage of mine,
although for sometime.
For, all things dear to me
I've piled them into you.

Are you the one I call at 11.11, with my eyes closed, voice muted, trying to meditate, be it for a minute, while the demons in my head keep yelling?

Another empty page I flip
while thoughts of you stroll past
my shrubbed mind
rowing their way out
until it's all a level playing field
As I battle against me to erase you,
the empty page keeps getting
crowned with new titles
A moist page. Then, a torn page,
a crumpled page, garbaged pieces.
Did you notice how it lost its
identity, suddenly by the end?!
How a page dies, like a
layer of my heart
with not a slightest buzz.
