Shelf of Scenes

My dearest friend Nithin Jacob has once again guest posted for me, an honor for my blog. In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It sometimes bursts into flame by an encounter with another human being. And that is what NJ has been to me….standing by me in all my problems, hearing me out whenever I feel low….Thank  you NJ, for everything…..The least I can do for you for you NJ,is simply be your friend always……I get immense pleasure to read what he writes, and get my major source of inspiration from too can read his poems and stories at

Shelf of Scenes
By: NJ

Slowly, her shadow walks through
Into the doors of her former nights
Over the clouds of a mourning day
Under the dale where stone is stiff
When the faces are frail and glare
Oozed by the dim when light is off
Whether her sleep took her dream
Will she recall the sight of sunup?
Will she recall the nights of marvel?
Over the clouds, a light has sparked
Into the wilds when the rain is down
Searching for peace, in her heart
Thunderstorm or summer dream
Heart is the hut for warrior’s rest
And softly her sorrows fade away
Into the doors of a serene sleep
Into the wilds of an undying dream

  19. This was dreamy. Beautifully descriptive.

  20. I dont know what to say. where to begin from, and where to seek the end. were these lines coming out live? or was i dreaming about such scenes? Shelf of scenes...

  21. heart is really a hut where warrior's rest. rest to start up again, stand up with will power potent.

    wonderful lines that describes a warrior. loved the poem Alpana.

    Nithin, you are really a poet who indulges his soul in understanding a mind. lovely.

  22. One thing about NJ is he only gets better everytime he writes. While Jim B, surprises me everyday with his exciting blogposts, NJ's poetry digs deep into his own heart and his memories ~ that makes his writings more effective.

    A very sensitive man ~ it's not always that I see a man speaking of his own heart, "Heart is the hut for warrior’s rest"... YES!It definitely is.
