She saw HIM, across the room as her gaze fell
His eyes – brown or black ;
From this distance she couldn’t tell.
Her sensory receptors seemed to be on attack,
By their dazzling sparkle, oh so bright !
He stood with poise, spoke with conviction.
Her mind grew aflutter at this sight,
And she smiled in silent admiration.

Her first impression of him was indelible.
She prayed with all her heart,
For him to be single and available ;
For an enduring relationship to start.
Little by little, she got to know more
Through friends, shared projects and trips
He was genuine, witty, warm to the core ;
Easily able to tease a smile from her lips.

When they spoke, there was no filter
A sense of ease emanated.
Many a ballad in her mind, did enter
At this providence life had orchestrated.
He was her pipe-dream turned into reality ;
Fantasies ran in her mind helter-skelter.
She fell for him totally, utterly & entirely
Hook, line and sinker !


Once upon a time, in a land far far away

There lived a girl, her disposition sullen and grey.

Her eyes unseeing, her countenance staid

Her lonesome figure clothed in plaid.

 Then from the corner of her eyes, she noticed a light

Something sparkling, shining so bright.

A new pair of golden shoes, brilliantly dazzling

Her mother placed before her – “a gift for my darling”.

She wore them, hopped, skipped and played

Her neighbours’ envy, their jealous stares betrayed

Nothing could wipe off her lovely smile

In her new shoes, she walked many a mile.

They were unconventional, they were new

Never seen before, except by a few

Indeed a distinctive possession, for a unique lady

An equally unique adventure followed lately

 She chanced upon a girl, young and bright

Pulling a cart in the scorching sunlight.

Her lack of footwear didn’t slow her down

She worked gaily, without any frown

Two choices waited for her decision

She parted with her golden shoes without hesitation

Strangely she didn’t feel bereft or repentant,

As she walked home barefoot, still buoyant.

 She realized something that day

An epiphany, some might say.

The antidote for a life dull, boring or bitter

Was just a little bit of GLITTER !
