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.
