Come close to life!

Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 11.58.31 pm.png

Jump into the river

Feel the sun

See the trees

Come close to life.

 

Release the tensions

Close the books

Come out of words

To attain the essence

Come close to life.

 

Stop working for a day

Walk on the streets

Observe the sky

Listen to birds

Chanting to please nature

Come close to life.

 

Stop running for a day

After the goals

Surprise the self

Bear the heat

Of the bright sun

Feel the sweat

Come close to life.

 

Look at the stars

Similar yet different

All over the world

Why differences

Then, here and there

Is it all about perceptions?

 

Commit to the soul

Stop and cease the moments

Come close to life!

Engulfed

Screen Shot 2018-06-30 at 11.53.19 pm.png

Engulfed at the seashores,

wondering if I should go

back or wait

till the dawn.

 

At times relieved

with the revival

of the charm,

casting upon me.

 

At times stuck

in the hidden adieu,

of the content

written by me.

 

At times stunned

by the gestures

of life, shaking

the chores of time.

 

Engulfed at the seashores,

wondering if I should go

back or wait

till the dawn.

 

It started functioning

even without reasons,

connected to the soul

You have a goal!

HEAT

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 12.19.19 pm.png

The sunburns are red

The tanning is gold

The marks are real

The sweat is glowing

With the heat of the town.

 

She is burning

He is burning

To fire the conscious

To light the lamp

In the heat of the sun.

 

The craving for water

To dive into the coldness

The hands are cold and wet

Giving the pleasure of ice

In the heat of the moment.

 

The pressure is on the heels

To stop jumping

To restore some energy

In this heat of the sun

Bright and golden

Glowing like a sunflower.

 

Eyes dare not open

In the shiny effect

The glasses kept me close

Waiting for the dark

To come and take

Me away from this heat

For a while.

 

Yet, I love this glow every morning

The heat of Sun!!

Take a break

Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 2.14.02 am

Pack your bags

Take a flight

To the dreams

Of wine.

 

Feel that wooziness

Creating much craziness

Was it a passion

Or a desire?

 

Break the rules

Not the laws

Love the people

Not the pretentious.

 

Take a break

From the love

From the hatred

From the schedule

To bump into the reality.

 

Leave the ones

Who ignore you

For the wealth of time

Hold on to those

Who want your time

In the craving of yours.

 

Take a break

From the pretentious

From the disappeared ones

Who appeared and disappeared

In the game of love.

 

Tell the world

To take a break

Not from your dear ones

But for the inner you

To soothe the senses

With the reflection of the tenses!!

Disappear

Stop and Stare

IMG_1894.jpg

Stop and stare

At the mirror

Is it the same reflection

when you were guilty?

 

The guilt raised the voice,

“I am not guilty

Of the old sin

Cemented with heavy bricks

Of the cold war.”

 

Stop and stare

At the water

Is it as blue as

When you first dipped

Your hands into the colour?

 

The water filled with despair

Singing the old song

Waving in the rhythm

To show the denial

Of the discolouration.

 

Stop and stare

At the eccentric world

Are they as epic as

The centric ones.

 

Running from the limelight

To cool down

The guilt inside

Craving to be candid

With the leisures of life!

Observation and Implementation!

Screen Shot 2018-05-04 at 7.37.09 pm

Observing the sky

In the moonlight

Observing the sea

In the sunlight

Observing the mountains

In the sunshine.

 

Observation is easy

Can we implement

the maturity of sky?

Consoling the stars

All the night

Without any expectation

To make.

 

Can we implement

the love of sea?

Giving shelter to

Many species

With the waves so high

And the trust is over high.

 

Can we implement

the courage of mountain?

So high in talent

Close to Sun and clouds

Still unaffected

In the trust of love.

 

Observation and implementation

Are they opposite poles

with some goal?

Or they tend to be

In the same pole

Without any hole!

O! thou scenery!

IMG_E1820

O! thou scenery

thou emerged in my eyes

like dreams so high

I can feel the warmth

of thy shine, in the colours

of the sunshine.

O! thou nature

I explore the world

with the love of thy

warmth beneath my feet

The sky, the mountains

make me amazed, to explore

the depth of theirs.

O! thou scenery

the coziness in

thy open arms

is like a soft foam

why not to gather this foam,

to create an aura of love.

Exploring India, is

nevertheless bogus than

Europe, I told myself

while I was peeping

through the window.

O! thou scenery

thou art beautiful

like a princess

I asked, “why princess”

as thou art always

decorated with the

seasons of the nature.

Thou blush, thou shine,

thou cry, thou shout,

thou laugh with all

colours of life!

On the beach!

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 1.10.11 am.pngOn the beach

Under the sky

Where the waves rhyme

That noise was

Like a quartet

Of Beethoven

To my ears.

 

On the beach

Craving to grasp

His hands softly

And tightly

To feel the watery

Effect in his eyes

Like the touch of

His fingers

On my spine.

 

On the beach

The waves giggling

To come at my feet

Like I giggle

To kiss him with pride

When the drops of love

Singing the song

Of Beethoven.

 

On the beach

The sun kissed

Quartet, arranging

The love tune

To start a ball dance

Under the bright sky.

 

Slowly and gradually

The hot sand

Is getting cooler

With the wet love

Of the loving souls.

The Tree!

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 8.56.15 pm.png

The nature is in harmony imagining the symphony band,

the leaves are dancing to the tunes of love.

 

The tree is bold and young, admiring his branches

from top to bottom, the love is uniting the branches

 

with the tree. The roots are as intense as love of his desire,

a representation of his commitment towards mother land.

 

But he is afraid of his grandeur, not willing to separate from

his small branches. The cruel fellow man brings an innovative

 

plan of palace in the wonderland, don’t slash the branches for the

lust of money. The branches have divine soul of giving shed

 

to many animals and beings. Sad is nature in the loss of harmony,

the lush greenery is turning pale and the leaves are dead in agony.
