About Her

My photo
Little Moments Of Bliss is a silhouette of a feeling that resides in my heart. A software engineer by degree, a writer at heart, and a teacher by profession, I'm all that I never thought I would be. Pretty pictures,a poem that blatantly refuses to rhyme, a text from a deranged friend, a sudden gesture of love, its these little things in life, that matter and sprinkle bliss. Grace the couch and share a cuppa!

Life is Short ?

They say "Life is short"
I say,
Aye fools, Don't you know ?
what really counts,
is all the happiness beyond those years.
Leave no desire untouched,
Let no passion stay unconcerned,
for it is only you, that matters.
If life offers a chance, Take it,
Let it explore 'You'.
Exchange a shy glance,
Leave your fate, for once, to chance.
Let the summer breeze wash away the guilt and the fears,
for, what really counts,
is all the happiness beyond those years.

PS - Lately, Poems have been growing on me. Kindly do tell, how I fare ? And is rhyming really all that important ? Because mine blatantly refuse to rhyme.


  1. Wow! I was thinkig something so so so similar lines.

    Also, u r doing great with poems. And, rhyming makes a poem very lame! So, no.. it aint important at All :P :P <3

  2. Nah. Rhyme is not always part of poetry, emotion matters too.. And you got a lot in this. Direct expression, and it says what it needs to say. Stop living your life thinking you'll die, and just live when you can.. because happiness doesn't need to end even after death. Nice poetry.

  3. your blog looks SO GORGEOUS !!
    I'm in love with the whole layout, the awesometastic header, the pretty colors, the font, everything!
    And this was a beautiful poem. I agree, it's the life in the years, not the years of life.

  4. Nah, I don't think rhyming words are necessary. Its just to give poetry a catchy note. BTW, Nice poem ^_^

  5. Rhyming isn't very important. They aren't needed at all. I really liked this too :) You're poems are good, so do keep at them :)

  6. Your poetry is not really in the same league as "John Keats", but its nice. Keep going.

  7. Babe... It does not matter if you rhyme or not.. Your poems touch the heart...leave an impression and that's what counts :)

    And this again is the best morning read..
    P.S. Pretty blog :D ♥

  8. Beautiful expressions. Especially loved the line "Leave your fate, for once, to chance."
    Nice work and flow of the poem is what matters and you are great at it :)

  9. Rhyming is not necessary, at least in my opinion. To me, poetry is all about painting a subtle and yet striking picture of the subject with a few words.

    And you succeed at doing the same. :)

  10. A thought that is a part of every living human mind from the time the first one walked this planet ... how long, when .. we know not.

    So it's time to have fun, let others have fun and try to be of some use to others!

    Good poem .. and you don't have to worry about rhyming lines.

  11. For one its beautiful and the meaning is conveyed perfectly. I loved it :)

  12. YEsssssssssss exactly my thoughts .. live as if today is last day , do what you want to do , what the heart desires .. who knows wat will happen tomorrow ..


  13. A free flowing poem straight from your heart:))

  14. Poems and rhymes, I'll quote A Pope on this,

    "'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none
    Go just alike, yet each believes his own.
    In Poets as true Genius is but rare,
    True Taste as seldom is the Critic's share;
    Both must alike from Heav'n derive their light,
    These born to judge, as well as those to write.
    Let such teach others who themselves excel,
    And censure freely who have written well;
    Authors are partial to their wit, 'tis true,
    But are not Critics to their judgment too?"

    So, now you tell, how did you fare?

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  15. That's fine because you are good at poetry. Wow. I literally read it again and again. :)

    Also, I like how you convey so much in such short posts, really means a lot. You are a wonderful writer.


    P.S: Read my novella at thecrypticbysonshu.blogspot.in

  16. Beautiful poem with beautiful message :)...

  17. Loved it! And there's no need for any rhyming when you can write as amazing as you did!

  18. lovely poem beautiful msg minus d rhyming :)

  19. As John Keats says,
    "Poetry should be great and unobtrusive, a thing which enters into one's soul, and does not startle it or amaze it with itself, but with its subject."
    -Letter to John Hamilton Reynolds (Februrary 3, 1818).

    Hence, I made my point. Nice.

  20. Pretty one :) Beauty of your post lies in its simplicity and don't mind about the rhyming!

  21. Nice lines dear.. :)
    keep writing...

  22. Loved it!!
    Happy poems make me happy! :)

  23. Rhyming is not that important. I loved this short poem! Its just to pretty and so true!

    I am writing a short online novel. Would love your feedback!

  24. wow lovely poem with a point.

  25. That was a lovely cheery poem :):) And as for rhyming, I don't think it should be forcible. It is good if it rhymes, but then it's not that important. :)

  26. Perfectly captures the breathless emotions. And yes, rhyming is no more a definite part of poetry !Free verses are common and they come to me easily too...:) I prefer them , anyday! Lovely piece...

  27. beautiful poem!!!
    loved it....

    and yeah, beautiful blog too!!!!
    keep penning..

  28. This is as beautiful as it can be. rhyme isn't important as long as it touches a chord...and it touched many.

  29. It's a wonderful start... well a lot of people may tell you that poems must rhyme, but it doesn't really has to... It's a necessary only if you are writing a song.

    You have started well, and should continue writing. There is a certain level of incoherence in your poem's meter, but don't think about it. It will improve as you continue writing. Also, try reading as many poems as you can, I recommend the Romantic Era...


  30. Rhyming isn't important at all. "beautiful poem" - keep blessing more..

  31. Whoa! I find that disclaimer (Mine just refuse to rhyme) below the poem, very catchy.

    Rhyme or no rhyme- they make sense in a positive way. And that matters.

  32. This one's perfect dear. And I really dont see a need of rhymes in poems. You are doing a wonderful job!

  33. Randomly stumbled across your blog. I love this. It speaks to me. You've got a new follower :)

  34. I've always maintained you have a thing for poems, haven't I? :)

  35. for, what really counts,
    is all the happiness beyond those years.

Scribble some love !
