At times, writing just doesn’t seem enough.
I need to get out there with my camera and capture the sights and sounds.
There’s so much going on inside me that it feels like a time bomb ticking way.
Join me as I walk and walk and walk on the streets of Bangalore.
Looking for some great shots and angles.
The story? That’s already alive in my head.

I enjoyed this, Terveen: thoughtful and thought provoking; well put together
Thank you so much, John! I appreciate it. 🙂
Just subscribed to your YouTube channel. I can only hope your time bomb will keep ticking, if it makes you produce so much good stuff. I enjoyed your poetic film very much.
Thank you so much, Britta. Tick, tick, tick…
Yes, all’s well. Will continue to expel my demons. Haha! I appreciate it. 🙂
You have many talents!
Thank you so much, Geoff! I appreciate it. 🙂
I didn’t see any (expected) homeless on the streets?
No, there weren’t any here in this area. They live in specific areas…slums…
I knew Bangalore must have slums somewhere……
A poem and video together — this is well done. I enjoyed seeing the spots of the city and hearing your words of walking this life, the pressures and trying to find security and knowing we don’t walk alone.
Thank you so much, Dave. I appreciate you taking out the time. Yes, we walk and walk and walk.
You’re a bit more familiar with India now. 🙂
I really love your video and your poem. I haven’t listened to video poetry before, but now I feel so inspired by the mix of the music and your inspiring (while haunting) voice. I want to listen to it forever. Long time ago, I listened to BBC’s one hour Wordsworth “Prelude” production and really loved it, but I haven’t explored this form of entertainment since. I will try more in this direction and hopefully you will bring more beautiful poetry and videos. I am such a big fan.
Thank you so much, Haoyan! I love shooting and compiling such short videos. The thoughts and feelings just spill out. I guess writers can’t stop the words. They overpower all other senses. But you know that. I appreciate your encouragement and support. It means a lot to me. Keep writing and inspiring. 🙂
You inspired me so much that I’ve spent the weekend trying to get the text onto a video. Thank you and happy holidays. Your sense of rhythm and rhyme and cadence is so perfect. I love the energy and vivacity.
That’s so wonderful, Haoyan. I’m glad that you are experimenting with this. You must share the end product. Though I’m not a poet, I can put words together and that’s what should really matter in writing. You are so kind, supportive, and a great writer yourself. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙂
PS- I am waiting for your submission. Happy Holidays!
This was an incredible spoken word in poetry Terveen. Truly a masterpiece. I could listen to it over and over. So incredible truly!
Such a gift! 💖👏👏👏👏
Thank you so much, Cindy! Your lovely words encourage and inspire me to write on. I hope I will be able to put together some more videos on a more regular basis. Have a beautiful and peaceful holiday season ahead. Many warm wishes! 🙂
Great questions that you post to our morden thinking.
Thank you so much, Cassa. The questions never end. Such is life… 🙂
Life is intriguing
That was great! Loved how the video started moving in reverse when the words began to really question it. Walk, walk, walk!
Thanks so much! I’m glad that you liked that aspect. Write, write, write, walk, walk, walk. I really appreciate it. 🙂
Wow, that was brilliant! Turns out there is beauty in everyday life, no matter how dull it seems. Loved your take on it! I shall be looking forward to your short films along with the flash fiction now! You are so talented. Simply awesome!
Thank you so much, Aaysid. I really appreciate the encouragement and support. Will definitely keep them coming. 🙂
It is always a pleasure.😊
I love your video and such a lovely voice. You are so talented. Merci d’avoir partagé! I do not know how to make videos.
Thank you so much, Tamara. That’s really sweet of you. And I don’t know French so had to translate that in Google. Haha! Take care. Happy holidays! 🙂
“How do we reinforce our weak structures?” Great stuff, Terveen! Very thought provoking video with a lot of great gems in there. Those were really nice shots you got of a place I’ll probably never visit. So thanks for that. I like when the camera got a little shakey and frantic to match the tone. I wasn’t expecting that. You should definitely make more. I’m just glad you weren’t wearing Crocs.
Hahahaha! I love your humor, Tony. I’ve never worn Crocs and never intend to. Thanks for noticing the details and appreciating the video. And never say never. You might end up having waffles in some café in India. Don’t worry, I’ll join you. The love for waffles is too strong to deny. 🙂
That is true. You never know what will happen. And I agree it is too hard to deny a lovely, delicious…waffle.
I enjoyed this short, tremendously, Terveen; and have, since watching it earlier this week, shared with several people close to me. It moves, touches, and inspires. ☺️
That’s so kind of you to say and do, Jeff. I really appreciate it. Such encouragement and support can only make one strive harder and believe in oneself even more. You are a wonderful person and cherished friend. 🙂
It is my complete pleasure, Terveen. It’s important to share inspirational work, such as your film. Is wonderful. Thank you for the acknowledgment. I feel the same about you, my dear friend. ☺️
Loved the video and your poetry.
Thank you so much! 🙂
Walking endlessly is a habit of mine, sometimes to excess. Thanks for your work, it is excellent.
Thanks a lot for watching and commenting. I hope you find and achieve what you are striving and walking for. Take care. 🙂
