pause button

||As kids we wished
upon a fast forward button.
To race ahead of time and 
turn into a grown up.
And as adults we hoped
there was a rewind button;
To travel back in time
to re-live our childhood.
While at it,
what we mostly missed out
is an option
He used on the 7th day.
If only, you could have
looked a lot closely.
You would have seen
how He sparked up an idea
to build the Pause button.
In other words,
the bring-the-world-to-a-screeching-halt
Park Bench.||

origin to destiny

||Origins, poles apart.
One flowered on a vine in the tropics.
The other, lay dissolved in the deep blue waters.
Yet, they were destined to be together forever.
Testimony; you'll find that 
perfect love in the most unusual place.||

In a cauldron;
Hot and to the brim.
Neck deep, submerged
in the warmth of
ephemeral indulgence.
They lay in each other's company, 
as a thin film
of steam enveloped them;
Building a fortress over
their porcelain haven.
