The Girl Who Catches Stars in Her Hair

I know a girl whose hands are always full
with misery and poetry, love in vain and abyss infinite.
Yet, she settles down to catch the evading stars every night
and because her hands are full,
the stars perch themselves on her hair
so that she may smile.

| I have been going about with pet projects on my art and writing blogs where I put up one inked sketch as a part of the Inktober Challenge throughout October. On this blog's Facebook page, (Street of Smiles) I've putting up one poem a day for as long as I can. I collaborated both the projects for the day, combining my art and poetry. Please do let know what you think of it. :) My art blog can be found at Hemu's Art Blog! ) Thanks and cheers! |

  1. Love your art work under the Inktober tag. Brilliant, really.

    The only complain I might have is that your written and art pieces seem scattered across blogs, FB pages and an Instagram page. For someone who wants to follow your works, treading across these several pages is a very Christopher Nolan-isque experience. :) But nevertheless, I intend to.

    1. Hello Rajesh!
      Thank you so much for your kind words. Really means a lot to me.

      Also, thanks for bringing to light that it seems a little labyrinthine. It didn't really cross my mind until now. I run one art blog and one writing blog, each having its own Facebook pages. Instagram is more like the common one under my name. Well, at the least, I thought so of it. Shall definitely look into it and see what I can do to make it a little less puzzling! :)

      Thank you again. Keep in touch. Great to connect with you here.


  2. The stars settled on her hair...
