Dear Past,

You have been kind, You keep on revolving in my mind. Though you have been sweet, but I always wanted you to deplete.                          Why? Because you have been a little bitter, You have also been a cheater, but above all this, you have been a great teacher. So I have realised lately that you are worth remembering because by pestering you, I have learnt the art of cherishing!

– Isha Chawla

        When you select a block to type, you will be getting choices like Heading, Paragraph, Image, Quote, Verses etc. Or go to the WordPress icon, there will be options like statistics, posts and so on. There will be an option called appearance and select the widgets as per your choice. Add verse if you have not yet chosen.

      5. There are tons of options (whenever you tap + option you can have them). Those options can make stuff interesting. However Wp ruins it in the reader.

    Hii Isha. Nice to read this poem. It appeared to me as if accepting someone with their faults for perhaps a symbiotic existence.
    As about technicalities, I have very Little idea of English rhyme though I know something of Urdu Ghazal rhyme.

    Hii Isha. I wrote an earlier comment too. Don’t know why it didn’t get posted.

    Nice to read this poem. It appeared to convey an idea of mutual symbiotic existence despite all the faults. As for rhyme, I have very little idea about English rhyme though I know something of Urdu Ghazal rhyme.

        Indeed. You have great potential and I am eager to read your new poems.

        As about Urdu rhyme, let that be a conversation for another day. That is based on Behar, Rukn and Vazn.

        It is okay. Urdu is a kind of forgotten heritage in India.

        I extrapolate from your surname that you are a Punjabi and probably from the family who once migrated from Pakistan. Saying this because migrant Punjabis had a great command on Urdu back then. Those were different days.

  18. It is raw… but when taken raw, one can ‘cook’ it in their own mind, and satisfy their own taste… then even a mere cook can become a chef, and the meal a gourmet delight…!
