Puffy clouds race along
Inspiration from NOIDA?
Blue sky spreads a nippy shawl
Time to keep woollens ready.
Stars shimmer in Kartik evenings
Lamps in mandirs, homes welcome
Comforting days shorten slowly
Nightlong dreams stretch quietly.
Watching soaps best way
Reading headlines relaxing
Languid moments enrich life
Doing nothing too, a way of celebration.
F1 racing, ODIs, twenty-twentys,
A film for a change,
Melodies of the bygone eras
Sooth frayed tempers, lull the mind.
Brightening breakfast, spicy snack at times,
Lunches lure, suppers satisfy.
Agenda-less, goal-free life
Perhaps, best way to re-charge!
