.D.O.T. (A poet’s reminiscence)

In The crowd or alone

The clandestine affair of enigmatic clone

Unturned pages of book unknown

Showing DOT a seed not sown


Under the bridge frozen space so phoney

Flashing dazzled night of symphony

Intimidated by the pouring rain

Pervious DOT goes in vain


DOT by DOT going the mystery

Weaving the mangled tapestry

Making pattern of dusted faces on shore

DOT with DOT coming afore


A desert here and a desert there

Differential of heart and mind to pair

All that pretentious is a Line

Frisking corners of soul for a sign

Nothing within, nothing is thine

Just a vernacular DOT is mine…

  5. Hey there Mr.coincidence…
    I have stopped wondering abt the coincidences now, u have again stolen my still unpenned thoughts…
    Must accept it now, by the way u said, [our writings r coincidental bt lives not, how much do we know each other?] 🙂

  7. Layers r evident n the heart underneath is so often left uncovered…
    All i hope is u soon get over it…

  8. Hummm….curious how dot and knot rhyme. AS usual I must read it again and again…..for me always ever seeking a poet’s true meaning. And, this one is a tough one. So back I go to re-read this poem DOT. Although as my husband drives a truck over here in the US. I must admit it is hard for me to cypher through this because DOT in trucker’s langauge stands for Department of Transportation. A governing body…..curious that I should think of that. Because it something that governs or controls….very curious and what an odd coincedence. You continue to amaze me with your beautiful words.

  9. D.O.T.S…….
    In first instance it appears like yet another IT term cut short 😉 … jokes apart !! I think I have said enough on how you write, this time I will reply little differently on DOT. That’s another poet’s reminisince, something I was told when I was small, guess 8 yrs old…. Thanks! Your lines actually reminded me something that I was told which was

    ‘Bindu’ bolo to ek sifar hai
    Ya shayad, kisi rekha ki shuruat,
    Sirf dekhne ka nazariya hai
    Jodo to rekha, todo to khaak !

    samjho to bindu samuchi dhara hai
    ya dhara mein bas ik kan pada hai!
    kehne ko bindu kuch bhi nai hai
    samjho to bindu se hi jag bhara hai !!

    Keep writting and continue rocking 🙂

  10. Shinade ha ha..shinade its not any department..:) its for dot only..n wow! dot and knot rhymes ..so closely u got..kewl…:)

    Raka : thank u hai 🙂

    Akshay : OMG tumne to gazab kar diya..:) its so good that u picked these lines here..

    bindu door se ek boond hai
    paas aa jao to dariya hai…
    khala ki sargoshiyan kehdo
    ya ek sangeet ka antara hai..

    but this is more than all this..;)

    Utopia..I just elucidated..meaning it always had 🙂 n what a perfect thing u said..no end and no beginning..jst perfect

  12. Life never ends……..
    it goes on forever, u in sumone else will survive……….
    We r cursed by the greatest boon that we cud ever recieve buddy.
    Think abt it.

  13. the soul never dies, the physical body might die but we, the inner person stays, the god and satan within us survive forever.
