She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
meets in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
had half impair’d the nameless grace
which waves in every raven tress,
or softly lightens o’er her face –
where thoughts serenely sweet express
how pure, how dear their dwelling – place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
so soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
the smiles that win, the tints that glow,
but tells in days of goodness spent,
a mind at peace with all below,
a heart whose love is innocent.

– George Gordon Byron

4 Words Daily: Day 7

Who says things are as easy as they look? Looks can be dangerous, and they are as evil as they can get. I thought it might be easy to share to the world my thoughts, but with each passing day, different thoughts creep up my mind. Well for now its all OK I guess.

“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”- Rabindranath Tagore

4 Words Daily : Day 6

One day I looked into the mirror and laughed at myself. Not in a bad way. I just smiled back at the person I saw, and that faint smile then turned into a laughter. This is self loathing I guess. Maybe I have too much excess time. And then it stuck me that I have a post to write, and here I’m again.

Thinking 💭 something Distinct!

I’m having a feeling I need to do something. Feeling that I should do to challenge myself, something I have to honour and religiously work on. Some ideas💡 come by, floating in ether, some make me unsure 😐, while for some, I deem myself  lazy: Lazy Lad that I’m. But the time has come (10/07/2018, 11:00am), whatever that time means.

  • Post a picture each day for the next 365 days.
  • Write an article ( however large or small)  for the next 365 days.
  • Do nothing for the next 365 days (the easiest one☝️!! ) : I’m not doing this btw.
  • Four words each day for the next 365 day; the assignment I used to do back in school.  This I guess will bring back the memories (and the hardships I used to face).This reminds me of the incident back in the school times. Since English was a mandatory language for us, ( I’m from Bihar, a state in India 🇮🇳 ) as our school was a Christian Missionary one; we were given assignments by our teacher to learn a few English words each week and try to incorporate them in our essays. Well this may seem easy, but who the hell uses easy words? As kids (I guess in 7th or 8th standard), me and my peers were on the lookout for the most hardest words we could find. Oxford Dictionary, Merriam Webster Dictionary, Cambridge Dictionary; we had it all. I still remember a few words I had memorised at that time:
    • Lackadaisical : Lacking life or interest or enthusiasm.
    • Bigotry : Intolerance towards those who hold different opinions from self.
    • La Dolce Vita : A life of self indulgence (It’s French, but it was there in Oxford, so I had it memorised)
    • Raiment : Clothing
    • Dogma : A belief that is accepted by members without being questioned to doubted.

 

When I used these words in my essay, I remember my teacher 👨‍🏫  calling me upto her table and specifically asking me not to use such heavy words. I must say, I felt proud at that moment, for the inner me knew that the teacher didn’t know the meaning and had no dictionary on her!

So from some day in future, I will start with posting a few words along with their definitions, which may help you (as it helped me) or maybe it would be fun to come across a few words obscure to you.  And call it

Be on lookout for it. Happy learning!!

Back in those days

Back in those days,
Slowly we slept into our fears.
All grown up now,
We sleep all the way into our tears.

Back in those days,
We were pure carbon.
Life pressed us so hard,
We turned into diamond.

Stars and moon,
We used to gaze.
Leisure is all but gone,
Life is nothing but a chase.

Innocent questions we used to ask
Answers were sufficiently rare.
Truth is now just a maze,
We are body of lies, and really, no one cares.

That kid in me,
Now is a lost reality.
We bear most things silently,
This is the harsh reality.

Miss those gaze at stars and moon
Time, we say is insufficient.
Money rules us all,
All we have become is impatient.
