Inhaling the fresh scent of the sweet mud
Under the brightly shining radiance of the sun,
I crawled near a luscious green leaf,
A weird sensation of freedom
Enamoured my soul,
A sudden rush of ecstasy on my shoulders,
I shook, I fluttered,
Only to find a scintillating melange of hue,
Endowed by the nature resting upon my shoulders,
I spread my gossamer like wings,
The rays of the sun shone through it,
With a puffed pride I took off to a new world,
Breaking the cocoon of silence
To discover myself,
from chains to reign, I knew life……
Life……………a big sigh!
Meandering through the lanes
Of memories high,
Facing the boulders of challenge
Traversing through the forest of time
Crossing the deep ravines to take a plunge
Life…………..a big lie?
Trust and love deceives hope
She hangs her soul from a rope
A fragile little life in
the world, devoid of heart
I cling on to you for my soul
You are just a beat away
But my blind eyes fail to see you.
Life……..filled with rue-
Of those missed buses
And hushed kisses,
For every opportunity that knocked once,
for the road not taken and,
For the love that I cared a tuppence.
A drop of wetness chilled my lips,
A dew of joy engulfed my soul,
I knew not the time or the world,
As I lay in a dream of reverberating dance
My heart pirouetted in the river of love.
Nevertheless I walked on
Never looking back at the bygone
No shame or fame can hold me back
Never a word of insult can put me down
Never the less, I looked beyond the grail
Never turning back for the lost sail.
My heart was a wandering loon
That sang the glorious boon
Of life that flies with the bird of love
And dancing to a melody from above.
Swimming through the river of poem
With words as my consort
I began to live as I was born
For in me lives a mother and a teacher.
A woman is…..
Who rises above the rising water
Never takes anything with a shrug
Her every breath pushes her to strive for more
It is not her hands that wades when drowning
but her undaunted spirit that carries her through the flood
And a resilient heart that helps her to rise above the rising water.
It’s a mundane existence
Without you beside my love
Time rolls its wheels churning the life
Minutes drag by burning my soul
Sustaining my breath, I wait by the door
Perception deceives me when I see a silhouette
It’s just a mirage that glides by
The hours sumptuously devour my patience
As the days crawls into weeks
I stand by the door for a glimpse
For a hug, for a kiss, battling with
Life devouring time that grinds its
As the minutes crawls all over me
I stand by the door hungered by your love.
Eager to traverse far off the limits to reach the horizon
Only to see the sky doesn’t meet the sea in the ethereal liaison.—-ambition.
Those traumatic pains may have bruised you all along
But they are the medication to make you strong.—-encouragement.
It is not in me to tell you the knots of life
Know to believe and push the boundary
or else, knots will be all that you know.—–determination.
Believe those words that echo in your head
Believe that image that you see in the mirror
Believe that heart that says, ‘you have it in you’
Believe that soul that pushes you to go.——faith.
A pitiful face among the crowd
Peering over for a last look at the shroud.
Ruminating the bygone years of
echoing pain in the heart, heard by the mind.
Those eyes trickled a tear not for
the heart that hurt, but for the life
that lay dead unbeknownst of
the pain that it caused while alive.
Nostalgic endeavours struggling to keep pace with time,
penning from an unchartered memory connecting it with a rhyme,
I float away reminiscing those bygone days,
wording those dallying moments in every possible way.
Sitting in a corner ruminating with rue,
about those missed kisses hushed with a cue,
drowning in the sea of your love
embracing those memories blessed from above.
Two decades has the wheel of time turned,
facing those glaring eyes, endless relations spurned,
were we the ill-fated star-crossed lovers reincarnated
or was it the trick of cupid?
This fool in love knows not the god’s ways,
she just knows, that this birth is insufficient
to know you and love you.
