On Being A Tugboat — BREVITY’s Nonfiction Blog

July 26th, the day I took the decision to sit down for a specific amount of time, on specific days every week, to write. No […]On … Continue reading On Being A Tugboat — BREVITY’s Nonfiction Blog

Kisses beneath street lamps

Maxima

Written: © Maxima 

Despite all cruelties
I am not inclined to believe
that faith is found in the
constant repeating of the dawn
rising above the surrounding mountains.
I’m not given to believe that the sky itself
implies an overwhelming faith nor the answer
for what lies ahead of us.
You imagine scenes that are in vain,
they are pointless
like trying to capture smoke in
a butterfly net.
Let us make a plea, ink a scroll
lack as night butterflies and
be not killers of love but filled
with nights of tenderness,
kisses beneath street lamps.
Come to me gently in the
moon-light bring with you hope
and belief in our love.
Let your childish curiosity languish
in the sincere love that I feel for you
here in my heart.

Missing Robin Williams days

this was amazing,

The blessed one

I don’t know about other people, but the first picture of Robin Williams in my mind fades in from Jumanji, yes, the original one. For me as a boy, Jumanji was just a way to enjoy an exciting journey, maybe for some people it wasn’t the finest work of Robin Williams, but for me, it was always the “Alan Parrish” that concluded the movie with a powerful lesson about father and son’s relationship. When I grew up and became a film-goer, I wanted to seek more about the work of Williams and became a big fan of him after watching “Good morning Vietnam” and “Aladdin” but the best was yet to come.

I later realized how a person can perform so naturally in complicated scenarios of “Good Will Hunting”, “Patch Adams” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” If you have not watched them yet, just immediately add them to your watch list.
