The Road Not Taken

Putting up the entire poem, just because it is my favorite 🙂

The Road Not Taken
– by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

A Poetic Conversation

Around 12th April 2011, when I was surrounded with mixed feelings and was as amateur as today in terms of handling emotions, I had a poetic conversation with this guy, a  good friend of mine in today’s date. It started with a chat and we were talking normally when the conversation turns poetic; naturally indeed. Was thinking of scribbling this conversation to my space for sometime and today I am doing it finally…

downloadA poetic conversation between a Sad girl (G) and a Jolly guy(B):

( G): Floods of tears created a great ocean amidst my soul is sinking by and by ……

( B): thou shall then catch a small boat named hope and float along the sea of life

(G): in the desert of miseries and loneliness, hope is like a drop of water…my soul is thirsty…waiting for a miracle

(B): have the papaya juice of friendship and enjoy the sweetness that it pours into thy soul

(G):hundreds of friends i have, few are close too…yet m lonely, yet m silent..

(G):amidst the merry making crowd, there is someone crying, amidst cheering laughter, there is sobbing tears…i have a smile in my lips but my heart refuse to smile…

(B):O lonely bird, imprisoned in the mind cage thy itself created, spread the wings of heart, fly above the cloud of worries,indulge in the sweet fresh air of merriness, you will hear more laughter,less cries…..friends

(G):i flew and flew higher..in the air of love, the sky was lovely, the air was pleasant, carried away by emotions i was flying on and on…till my wings were cut and my eyes were bleeding…

(B): the feathers of hope thy bear,those tender things of love,clasped in the strong clutches of forged love, why fly into the wicked web of hope, why not steer away

Thank you Jolly Guy for that day. Hope you stay as jolly as ever. Signing off for today 🙂
