One spoon at a time

What inspired me to write my upcoming book ‘One spoon at a time’? Check out this entry that I had submitted for a contest on StoryMirror:

“fifty years from now
when we have travelled a long way
and at the end of the journey we have reached
when my legs have had their last walk
and the blood in my veins has almost frozen
when my trembling voice is aching your ears
and the sound of my shivering teeth is enough to break the silence in the room
when I am stealing some breaths from death
and the clock is echoing my last moments
I would be looking into your eyes like I had when we had first met
and my heart would still be found diving in the dimple on your left cheek
at that very moment, I want you to rest my head on your lap, give me a smile
and feed into me life one spoon at a time.”

– Shweta Tale

It’s taking a little longer for the book to be available on the Indian marketplace due to some technical difficulties at Amazon’s end; it’s available on rest of the Amazon marketplaces. Hoping it to be available everywhere soon.

Launching soon

Book cover and title revealed 👻

My second prose and poetry collection ‘One spoon at a time’ is coming out to you soon. 💜😇

What is the book all about?

ONE SPOON AT A TIME is a progressive journey of ‘falling’, ‘learning’ and ‘rising’ which are the indispensable phases of life. It leaves us with a thought that if life feeds us with one spoon of sorrow, it will feed us some spoons of sweetness too. It’s necessary for us to taste both to respect what life offers us, accept it wholeheartedly and be hopeful for a better chunk in the next spoon. 🙃

Stay tuned for more updates. Can’t wait to share the book with you. ☺️

Deserve what you love, love what you deserve

When you decide to not settle for something less than what you deserve, be ready for life throwing tantrums at you. You will be shown every now and then that what you are expecting is more than what you deserve; that it is far beyond your reach. You will often end up crying at your inability to prove that you do deserve what you want. You will break to such an extent that you will give up more times than you can imagine. Hold on. Be patient. When you know what your worth is, when you know what you deserve, love it hard and move towards achieving it no matter what. One day you will not just deserve it, you will show the world that you were meant for it. Life has an amazing way of giving you what you deserve, you just don’t have to give up untill you achieve it.

Deserve what you love, love what you deserve.

Lost

I am missing my own self today.
The me in me is lost somewhere between the dark woods of the past.
I still see a ray of light out there
but I am too afraid to follow the lead.
The shackles of my own deeds have made my feet heavy and numb
and I can no longer move out in the sun.
I seem to have made peace with my
own darkness and these demons have taken over my true self.
The self that I had loved for a long
and the self that I so badly adored.

From my debut book ‘…and you say you know her?’

Horizon

🔊 Sound ON
Don’t meet me at the horizon.
It’s too far.
Instead, walk into my life tip-toeing
and meet me somewhere under a banyan tree; talking to the wind, playing with the grass and humming your favorite song.
I promise to sing along the same melody
until it resides within us
like the blood in the arteries.
