the magical bond
sparkled with fairy incense –
Love alone heals us
“This is going to be fun”, She thought to herself and smiled.She packed her bags , loaded the car with lot of food and left to see him.
Unaware of her plans , he struggled through the day , thinking of one good break from everyone around. And everything too. Suddenly it seemed that everyone was only concerned about the wedding. No one asked them , what they wanted , how they wanted their day to be. Everyone had their hopes and dreams to fulfil.
An hour later , she was standing outside his office. She did not have to wait long. Both of them always knew where they would be at any moment.
He hugged her , welcoming the sweet surprise with a huge grin. As he took the keys from her , he saw the packed bags and asked , “Are you going some place tonight ?”
“No , we are going out of town for the night”
“Good. I really need that, you know”
She winked and kissed him ,blushing a little as he looked at her admiringly.
“This is so much fun”, he though to himself and smiled.

She felt odd she had argued with Zen. If his loud grunt could be considered that, she smiled. He was a creature of less words and more drama. And just like that , today morning he said it was the day to orbit the aircraft. No amount of ass-licking [ he loved this word and used it often on her ] would make him abort his trip, he had declared.
And now , barely 3 hours later , she knew something was not right with him. She hated to send him alone out there in space but then, drones are meant to be alone. She squinted at the screen to see any sign of his return but knew he would not return unless his mission for the day was fulfilled. Stupid programming, she cursed aloud and went to drink the night away.

He was late tonight. The head witch Tracy sat impatiently at the door step waiting for him. The new comers to the witch family , sat impatiently around the dinner table , staring at the food which had gone cold already. Finally footsteps were heard from far away. He was still two streets away when Tracy ordered the candles to be lit and the food to be roasted once more. He liked his meat warm and chewy unlike the rest who did not care a bit for her cooking. And so , she made them wait every night for him. Little did they know , he liked to act important, hence the deliberate delay every night. It was after all a good decision to host the witches , he thought to himself as he entered his house, specially Tracy who loved to cook for anyone who cared to praise her.

“you don’t believe it ?” , she asked him as she folded a few more dresses and stacked them on the bed.
Next she took out the suitcase from the almirah and only when she was done packing her things , did she turn to him. All this while he was looking at her activities with an amused look.
“so ..” , she looked at him questioningly.
“If you had to leave , you could have just left. you know , why spend last half hour convincing me about it ? Unless you want me to ask , when you would be returning” , he smiled as he picked her suitcase and walked ahead of her, without waiting for a reply.
She went and sat in the waiting cab, and finally laughing at her actions , she slowly said, “you really think I will not leave you alone for long ? You are right dad. I am returning soon and make sure you do not have any more fun without me”
And then she was gone. Out of her nest , for the first time ; with his belief in her , her belief in his trust and herself as her only ally.
a flower awaits,
pretty butterfly new born,
wonders lie in path.
she got it wrong,
the free bird reminded her-
money never goes high.
Sheela sat at her desk , looking out of the window. She could see the sun set in far horizon and the birds return home. she wished she could return home too. Then very slowly , she turned to look at the laptop screen where the Outlook showed a whole lot of emails awaiting her reply. She knew it would be another long day. Or night, she laughed to herself , hearing the office go silent.
If only she had listened to her heart to go on that adventure with him. That unplanned vacation he had so excitedly asked her to take with him. The trip he finally went alone and both of them missed each other so much. Just then, he called her and she made a mental note to join him over weekend, wherever he was and not to return for another week.
The pending work did not make her sad anymore.
She was finally let her heart win over her head.
And she felt lot better after a long time.

now, I dare not brag;
said the over polite guy,
lost in her thoughts.
lost in her thoughts,
of the silk clad goddess
his icy eyes glow.
his icy eyes glow,
all her mystical smiles
showered as love
for 3ww , Carpe diem
one tree – one forest
summer bow to shades alike
lonely road ahead
