old and new
the storage boxes
of remembrance

the old tickles our mind
and asks "do you remember me?
that old books on the library,
the aroma of the sand when drenched in rain,
scented flowers brushing your nose
and mama's recipe , my favorite dish"

The other end the new slowly hangs on to a place
carefully sealing itself under the neural jelly
adding and mingling with the old
to be recalled again as a whole
when my nose buds feels the aroma
as my brain start researching
what's the ingredient of the smell is  ...

Author details

I find it easy to portray me as a Poet which I found out during my writing journey. Having a degree in Engineering, I found myself quite well in fixing pieces of words together and getting them published.

What is a poetry? If some one asks me this question, I have two answers with me.The former being "Poetry is an ART where we paint the pictures with our words" and the latter is "Poetry is my self-expression".  Here I mean self -expression because I try to relate (fantasize ) myself with the characters I write taking into account all aspects of life .

"Vande Mataram" -the Songs of the Indian Soul

"Vande Mataram"
this musical words
cuts chords of the string
covering the soft walled hearts
to let out that feeling
"to be Free..."

This land of Bharatam
stands now on its own feet
having its own breathe of
" Freed air "

Unforgettable legend
reminds each one of us
still alive on this mud 
the days of shed bloods
countless number of tears
and unanswered prayers

Stand now to
the words of our leaders
spread the light and
have the will
to celebrate this day
answering those 
shed bloods and tears
to live each passing day
"Vande Mataram"

Indian flag comprises of three colors saffron,white and green in equal proportions.On the middle is the wheel in navy blue color comprising of 24 spokes and this Emblem design is adapted from the Lion Capital of Ashoka at Sarnath on January 26, 1950.The ratio of the width of the flag to its length is 2:3 and the diameter of the chakra approximates to three-fourth of the width of the white band of the flag.Indian flag is also called as Trianga.

I could remember my school days, when our principal hosts the flag and we the students, singing the National Anthem song in chorus.She used to pull the flag high and slow and when spread ,showers the rose petals upon her head and the students nearby .It was such a unique look seeing the hosted flag flying pridely to the waves of the brushing breeze.
National Elements
National Tree : Banyan
National Flower : Lotus
National Fruit : Mango
National Animal : Tiger
National Game : Hockey
National Song : Vande Mataram
National Anthem : Jana Gana Mana
Natianl Emblem : The Lion Capital
National Calender : Saka Calender

The National Emblem (as seen in the above picture) symbolizes India's commitment to world peace and goodwill. You can see four lions (three in front and the fourth one behind) .The lions symbolizes power, courage and confidence resting on a circular abacus which in turn is girded by four smaller animals named as  guardians of the four directions: the lion in the north, the elephant in the east, the horse in south and the bull in the west. The whole of the abacus rests on a lotus in full bloom meaning the fountain of life and creative inspiration. Below it is inscribed a word /motto 'Satyameva Jayate'  meaning "Truth Alone Triumphs".

Exploring Poetry : Free Verse

a clasp on both hands
tied tightly and
lifting me slowly
above the ground
a transparent wing grew
it grew larger and larger
as I fly higher and higher
swirling like a tornado
I started to shout
laughing hysterically
it was magical
How did I continuously laugh?
10 min
5 min
Hey! enough stop .
It's over
I got down
from the fun fair saucer ride

Happy Friendship Day!

Pleasure to have friends
who lights up your surroundings
'Disguised fireflies'

To have one friend who stands in front of you pointing your mistake saving a life time misery is much better  than to have many friends who never had time to guide you through

Happy friendship Day to all my friends!!

Magpie Picture Prompt
A tinge of yellow
rotating at high speed
shines brighter
to a full yellow circle
throu' the effect of
spinning blades
recalls resemblance
a bright ball of fire
spinning around
marking the Sun by
gravitational mass
Black holes ,do they
exist in the above both
the producer of wind
the generator of heat
without which my earth 
challenges to exist ?

This is me :
 To bring out the sparkling light of creativeness in you , 
 you got to burn the oil of time and space -  ©Umamaheswari Anandane
Redundant phrasing - Words, phrases, lines, stanzas, even, that are unnecessary according to me are :[ rotating ] at [high] [ speed], [The spinning] I repeated ,[by] gravitational [ mass] and between  [the producer of wind] and [the generator of heat]
