times recent, there are these voices, I hear
could well be in my sleep, I fear
they are here and they sound so familiar
I know it is from far, yet I hear it so clear

reminds me, telling me about reality
takes me back years a few, to infinity
sound of music and sweet melodious intimacy
then the crash to the pit, to that negative ecstasy

clear sky, flowers, birds singing, I hear again
sunshine and smiles, a dream I thought, I regain

it is a common beach crab that I now see in my mind
its golden legs moving up and down, moving it around
so amazing they move; for every step they take forward
swift they are, but they move three steps backward


As my next vacation is due, I won't be blogging or replying to comments for some time. I thank you once again, for the kindhearted welcome extended to me after my long absence.

Current music:- "Steering me round and round" by Kitara.
Though the song is English, the background and the music culture is mostly Indian. I like it very much.

Jac, your life is a vacation buddy.
Just leave us some crumbs once in awhile to know you are out there

I enjoyed the music. :)

I promise to send you well wishes for a wonderful vacation (and hope that you bring us back lots of pictures) instead of being bitter that YOU always seem to get so many nice vacations while some of us hardly get one a year. (sob) Just kidding. :) Well, about the bitter part, not about hoping for lots of pictures! :) Be well, Jac.

Ah, I just found your blog again, (because of your visit to me), and now you are off on vacation. Well when you get back, I will still be here, (I hope),. haha. I haven't been very active lately with blogging, but I won't ever close mine again, because you completely lose it, found that out. haha I guess I thought you could always reclaim it....not so.

Where are you off to this vacation?

I will come back and read the posts that I have missed, but I have to eat right now....tummy is complaining.

I love your music...

A footstep so smooth,
the words so candid,yet strong
the mind so full of empathy
came stright up to my heart,
koock knock knock, are we there?
are we still stranagers too?

the long pile of stories of life,
unfolded, into thy lap,with tears,
some horrid,some slymy,yet so true.
solutions came,step to be taken for
koock knock knock, are we there?
are we still stranagers too?

moments of silence with tears
emotions with high voltage
darkness so deep and fathemless
yet with keyboad and word of wisper
you broght a ray of hope and light
life has habbits of sprouting,
if given the right kind of light,
the right kind of manure,which,
oozed out from words of wisdom.
koock knock knock, are we there?
are we still stranagers too?

Ray of light sprouted,so also life,
from with in me,and my words,
has wings of fire,which pasted
right into paper,poems and news.
the thrill didn't last much
black venoums of fire of saten
swirled around me,eating me up.
koock knock knock, are we there?
are we still stranagers too?

the silence,depicted as 'ignore'
lag and other chitchats of words
argument,words of war and SILENCE.
life went off action,serch,serch
no sound no light no life.
koock knock knock, are we there?
are we still stranagers too?

Silence is wisdom when all become null
Silence is language that speak truth in full
Don’t knock a door when it is open in full.
