Love lives on

Lake Bled, Slovenia

“It simmers yet again,

Happiness in a crimson bubble

That we better know as heart;

With the promise of

Flattering illusions

Palpable fantasies

Love lives on … ♥️

– Shagun

Happy Valentine’s Day, all !! ♥️ 🙂


I’d Rather Be…

This week’s photo challenge theme taps into the pure, happiness-oozing corners of the readers, rooted somewhere deep within, kindling with joy when they do something that they love! For me, penning down poetry compositions is what stirs up those hidden pancreas of delight. That’s the paradise I lose myself in.. That’s what I find the most satisfying and rewarding.. Do you still wonder how my blog came to be titled as ‘Pen and Paradise’? 🙂

Here’s a glimpse of a few lines that I composed for the ‘About my journey’ page of my blog, where I happily introduce my readers to the love I nurture for travelling around the world, collecting timeless memories as varied,  precious and rich as crystals from the ocean!



I’d really like to be able to give more time to this love of my life.
I’d rather be.. composing..
