13, Cambridge Street

She walks on the lyrics,
He can make even Saturn laugh,
Teaming up in August this year,
Life gifts 'friendship' as a souvenir.
Digging deep as they interacted,
Beautiful shock they extracted.
Both lived on Cambridge Street,
Separated by few blocks of concrete.
Three summers later destiny smiles,
Now, separated by oceans and million miles.
Stumbled upon on cyberspace,
Nurturing their talents at a steady pace.
Though they dined, shopped, walked in the same air,
Maybe, sipped coffee sitting in the next chair.
Never saw each other all that while,
Brushing those moments both smile.
It's gratifying, jubilant and heartwarming,
The little pavements of friendship they're forming.
Humor, wit, rhyme, and verse,
Have a lifelong celebration to attend.
Floating with the clouds of creativity,
They have the company of a great friend.

*Based on a true story of two bloggers.

    Any one can relate today's reality and the feelings of this poem... as today we're more connected with cyber world.

    you write poems with so ease !

  24. बहुत ही सुंदर कविता है,इतनी खूबसूरती से इन भावों को लिखा है कि दिल चाहे पढ़ना इसे बार-बार...

  27. What a beautiful relationship ,it all starts with words then the rest is history now !

  28. An outstanding creation from your silent mind & faithful heart..
    A best friend does not ask us to be other than what we are..:)
    @Good luck! you r necessarily outside of the false!

  29. 'If ur poem can touch my heart, then it's not because of ur language, not because of ur lyrics but because of ur theme-the evergreen friendship that fuels two blogging minds'

    You know what, you give life to the words very astonishingly :)

    Love, Risha :)

  34. Superbly written Saru! Something similar happened with me also, though we met in real and not in cyberspace. It was amazing to discuss the places we had coffee and we ate, maybe often at the same time, never noticing one another...

  35. Well said Life gifts 'friendship' as a souvenir. Good one

  36. Awesome composition with rhythmical lines...demonstrating the state of connectedness or bond between the two people..especially emotional one!! Keep it up Saru.. great !!

  37. Dear Saru.....I liked the way you wrote this poem. Ofcourse, needless to say the theme is beautiful. But for this one, I would like to congratulate you for your writing style, its different than others that you have written. Its not simple to write like this! My wishes to you.

  38. superrr like like and like saru .
    am in love with ur 'Words'.

    The little pavements of friendship they're forming.

  48. Saru...an ode to the cyber stuck blogger ? One of your best picks .....

  49. I guess we're all fed up with the real world, that we need to get solace in the online world of blogging. Let the real world learn from the virtual world.

  50. i usually dnt understnd poems....but this one was really nice....


  51. The line
    " Three summers later destiny smiles,
    Now, separated by oceans and million miles."
    Rhymed so beautifully. *sigh*

    Indie :)

  59. like the narration and the ending on the optimistic note:)

  60. A story well told in your poetic words. It is funny how cyberspace helps us strangers keep connected and forge stronger relations than perhaps even if we live on the same street!

  61. separation is the toughest part, one who overcome it is the best example of a person who knows how to keep relationship at its best :)lovely read, it compelled me to read twice after reading the last line :)

  62. aw..!! so so so nice.. :) beautiful.. :)

  63. Amazing.. reminds me of the play "Tumhari Amrita" !

  64. Sigh.

    I thought this was a song lyric.
