A hot, strong cuppa.
Now going lukewarm
A third cup for the day
What is so brewing?
To guzzle up on coffee?
Nothing my friend
Just the boredom
Zapping energy that’s little left
Resigned and accepting
of the monotony.
Oh! There are highs and lows
Phases are like sine wave
Riding high on unexpected joy
Drowning in unexplained sorrow.
What would be life
With only joy or sorrow?
A masterpiece called LIFE
At times abstract, transcends  
understanding. Purpose of life;
I brood over it. Time and again,
this recurring question
is a stepping stone to
discover myself further.


  1. B, will a cuppa reveal the mystery of life , its understanding? I guess reading ( when you wade into the writer's mind) and travel ( lucky are the ones who travel) can help to discover ourselves.
    Well that aside I liked your lines , yes why not ? ha e a cup of coffee and think over ?

    1. Anil,

      Thank you for stopping by. Hahaha, like that question. No! a cuppa will not reveal the mystery of life. Life's mystery is a multi layered concoction; not that easy to explore over a simple cuppa. But a cuppa does give you that time to start that process of brooding about life. Reading, travel and other activities that you can indulge in like painting, sketching (which I have started of lately), writing, sports could help discover ourselves too.

  2. Interesting post. Remembered a song I read sometime ago. I will paraphrase. How does a little baby know how to smile? How does a cat land on his feet? That is the mystery of life.

    1. SG,

      Yeah, thats so apt. It wont be interesting if life were so obvious without any mystery or adventures. Thank you.


I'd love to know what you thought :-) Please shoot!
