My Pinecones

I went to Manali last year with family, to celebrate my parents’ 25th marriage anniversary. πŸ€—πŸ’•

The place was like heaven ( Even though I haven’t been to heaven yet 🀭, but i believe it could be something like Manali).
And what I brought back were some lovely pinecones which were lying lonely on the roads, parks and pavements. πŸ™ˆπŸ₯‚

They looked like this:

(One of those many pinecones that we collectedπŸ€—)

While this natural colour is magnificent in itself, I felt I needed to try my (long time no see) creativity skills on these pretty pinecones 😈😈.. giving a modicum of make up if you may say πŸ˜›πŸ™ˆ

And the result was quite satisfactory!!πŸ˜»πŸ˜‡

πŸ‘† What do you say friends??
Would love to hear your opinion, please do share if you liked them πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„

Saazish – Conspiracy (English and Hindi)

Hindi:-

Dil ke zarre zarre me tere naam ki numaish lagi hai,

Gosha-e-Rooh me jaise teri guzarish basne lagi hai.

Na raha koi mutabaadil ab, na koi gunjaish hai ab baaki,

Tujhe anjumoΓ± se churaane ki saazish panapne lagi hai.

English:-

A gargantuan exposition

Of your name

Bejewel every inch

Of my Heart.

To an extent,

That my soul’s

Unfathomable corners

Herald your existence

And urge to be entwined.

With no Alternative left,

And no bargain

Or scope of an

adequate entente,

An immiment strategem

Is burgeoning inconspicuously

To blatantly steal you

From the mighty Stars! 🌟

This creation has been inspired from a beautiful post Meri Kami 😊😊 written by the very talented Sameera !! Please do give it a read πŸ€—

My Aphrodite

In your face, I can feel the presence of God,
Lighting up the dark alleys with a heavenly smile so broad.
Even the black and white becomes colorful, with your touch.
To honour your spirit the alphabets aren’t much.
The zeal you possess and the grit that you attire,
Complemented by the unmatched beauty that everyone desire.
Under the hood of poise resides a tender heart,
Seeking the world to fathom its true serene part.
For the roses will wilt and the leaves will wither,
But thy beauty will be intact as the heavens never smither.

πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

Feelings are so strong that they can make a simple person appear like a God. In all their actions and in all their appearances, one can only experience the presence of God. It makes us realise the sheer and unlimited devotion and love we have in this limited space occupied by our body. That is when we realise that we are beyond this physical form.

There is nothin’ just like you

It is not the facet of the white moonlight,
But your smile that wanes out the darkness.
It is not the facet of a gentle breeze on a hot day,
But the flinging of your hairs that brings coolness.

It is not the quirk of a setting sun,
But your lips that Color the roses red.
It is not the quirk of a dense branched tree,
But your beautiful thatch hair that provides shed.

It is not the trait of a sparrow or a cuckoo,
But your cadence voice that constructed notes.
It is not the trait of the ice blanket on mountains,
But your cheeks that gives white its colour quotes.

It is not the facet of the perennial rivers and streams,
But your eyes that gives depth to the giant ocean.
It is not the facet of the fireflies in the night,
But the pleasure of seeing you that makes stars twinkle with devotion.

It is not the quirk of a pearl born in its shell,
But your eyes that gives shape to the sun.
It is not the quirk of stars reflection on the sea,
But your traits that makes the heart of the zillions run.

It is not the facet of the fragrance in a parterre,
But your blissful form that keeps everyone breathing.

Hindi:-

Chaand Ki Chandni Mein Woh baat kahan,
Yeh Toh Teri Muskan Hai Jo andhiyara mitati Hai.
Garmi me us Thandi Hawa Ke Naram jhonke Mein wo Baat Kahan,
Yeh Toh Teri zulfo ka jhatakna hai jo thandak pahuchati hai.

Doobte Suraj Ki Madhham se Lali Mein Woh Baat Kaha,
Yeh Toh Tere Honth Hain Jo Gulabo Mein Laal Rang bharte hai.
Ghane paedon ki dolti Hui Shakhaon Mein Woh Baat Kaha,
Yeh Toh Tere Ghane Baal Hai Jo chaanv dete Hain.

Papihe ki peehu aur Koyal ki kooho mai wo baat kaha,
Yeh to teri awaaz hai jisse Sur aur Taal bante hain.
Pahado par barf ki us chaadar mai wo baat kaha,
Ye to tere Gaal hai jo barf Ko gora karte hai.

Bahti hui in jheelon aur nadiyo me wo baat kaha,
Ye to teri ankhei hai jo Sagar Ko gahrai deti hai.
Raat ke andhere me chamchamte jugnuon me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tera Deedar hai jinse sitaare jagmaga uthte hai.

Seep mei janme naye Moti me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tere mast Nayan hai jo Sooraj Ko golakar dete hai.
Saagar par padte sitaaro ki chaadar ke pratibimb me wo baat kaha,
Ye to teri Ada hai jisse logo ke dilo ki dhadkane chalti hai.

Phoolu ke us baagh ki khushbu me wo baat kaha,
Ye to tera roop hai jisse saanso ki saansei bharti hai.

The poem was first written in Hindi, but I believe that the translation has came out pretty nicely. Hope you enjoy these verses!

There is nothin’ just like you is an imagination that taps into the deepest part of the heart. When we juxtopose the nature and someone we admire, even the beauty of the nature falls short. It is just a way to tell that beauty lies in the eyes of beholder! Everyone is beautiful and there is nothin’ just like you!😊

Madhosh raaz/ Intoxicated secrets (Collab)

I would like to Thank Sameera for this wonderful opportunity of doing a colab with her!! It was an amazing experience..
I really hope that all our readers like this work of ours. 😊

Our words mingled so perfectly as if the verses were waiting for each other. With this work her amazing SS Poetry has transformed into SP poetry to mark the beginning of an amazing friendship. Our verses are all about the secrets we hide in the darkness, revealed by our words.

Although translations can never do justice to the original verse yet we tried our best to translate. ❀

Here’s goes the poem :

Madhoshiyan alfazo ki sunane lagi hai kahani nayi
Is lamhe mei raaz hai kayi

Sham dhalti hai taaron ki raat mei
Fizaein nayi hai is jazbaat mei
Khwab palkon par timtimate hai
Andheron ke parde par jagmagate hai
Bunti hai yeh duniya kahani nayi
Is lamhe mei raaz hai kayi.

Seep si palkon me band un motiyon mei
Cham cham karte kuch sapne sajte hai
Bin bole huye lafzon ke un aksharon me
Rim jhim karte dua-e-ishq baraste hai
Khwabon ke ye tazkire hai ek kahani nayi
Is Lamhe mei raaz hai kayi

Dhalti Hui raat ki us angdai Mai
Badalte huye karvaton ki duhaai hai
Dhadakte huye bechain se dilon Mai
Kisi ki ruswai to kisi aur ki parchhai hai

Mehtab mei kaid na jane kiski tanhai hai
Subah ke intzar mei dhalti angdai hai
Dhadakte huye bechain palon mei
Teri rooh aur teri hi parchhai hai.

Parinda hu un khwabon ka jinhe tumne sajaya
Khwahish hai tara banjau jisko tumne sarhaya
Odh lu tumhari baaton ki chaadar yahi
Tumhari is muskurahat Mai Raaz hai kayi.

Waqt ka ehsaas ho tum ya ho koi fairishte
Meri raat ko sajate tumhare sare rishte
Tum ho toh hai yeh baatein wahi
In baaton mei raaz hai kayi.

Is raat mei us baat ki muskurahat hai
Jiski mere darwaze par aj aahat hai
Bikhre ab mere saare yeh raaz hai
In lamhon mei gunjti tumhari aawaz hai

Madhoshiyan alfazo ki kehti hai baatei kayi
In lamhon mei kaid hai raaz wahi.

TRANSLATION

Intoxication of words tells the story just revived
Some secrets that these moments hide.

The evening morphs into a starry night
Creating an ambience of pristine feelings.
The eyes sparkle brightly with dreams
Scintillating amidst the darkness that veils.
The world is knitting a story just revived
Innumerable secrets these moments hide.

Closed in shell-like eyelashes are pearls
Where my dreams glitter
In letters of those unsaid words
Prayers for your love drizzle
This memorandum of our dreams is a story revived
Innumerable secrets these moments hide.

In the cavernous of the waning night
Are the cries of the insomniacs.
In the restlessness of a beating heart
Are the shadows of someone and treachery of others.

Prison in moon is an unknown emptiness
Awaiting the sunrise, stretching and setting
In palpitations of my heart lies your presence
Which are shadows of you and your essence

I am the bird with decorated feathers of your memories
Wishes to conquer the star you appreciate
In wrappings of your verses I confide
Like the secrets, your smiles hide.

You are the caress of time or perhaps an angel
As you and your affinity decorate my night.
Because of you, my verses are tied
Innumerable secrets these words hide.

This night is smiling because of a reason
Giving an inkling on my closed doors.
All the secrets lie out in open, scattered
As in this moment, your voice is echoing.

Intoxicated words these moments converse
Hidden beneath which are the secrets.

Tattoo Art

Hello ! Hope that everyone is having a good day!

I wanted to share some of my attempts on making tattoo art. I realised that I can make tattoos during my college days, when I ‘accidentally’ made a tattoo on one of my friend’s hand (he was popular). It was appreciated by every fascinated onlooker.

I was later approached by many others, who were participating in various fashion events, to help them stand out from the crowd.

Well here are some:
