Repossess

Eyes towards the sky, In fervent prayers, Wishing for be consummated By all pervading nature. “If you are the giver, Then please be the taker”, Was the prayer. “This life of mine Is past its prime, Of no use now to anyone. Let me now crumble, Merge with your elements.” The building Which, till yesterday, … Continue reading Repossess

Unhindered

End of the road. No, not the end of the world but certainly the last bastion! Border! Divided by man, A country gives way to another beyond the hills yonder! This No Man’s land; Forced to be left vacant, is the theatre! Here nature rules the roost and spectacle unfolds, as per nature’s whims and … Continue reading Unhindered

Nostalgia of Rain

Stubborn rain! Comes in torrents, Whenever I am On my way to work! Laden, heavy with water, The raindrops pelt hard, Threatening to tear the umbrella cover, Before sliding down In frustrated demeanour. Aided by the boisterous breeze, Sometimes the rain attempts to swing in; Spraying my face, My clothes, As if they have something … Continue reading Nostalgia of Rain

Beginning

With great care, Someone nurtures The blip of life; Tenuous, unsure. Then one day, The blip grows larger, Pushing at the boundary, Exerting its authority. The first boundary is then crossed. A beginning. An addition To the family. A home is fulfilled. Continue reading Beginning

If Only…

If only we could Turn the wheels back. Move back from today, To the times left back yesterday. If only for once Could the wheels be reversed! Ah! To savour that bliss once more, Which childhood had for us in store. Alas! Moving unidirectionally forward; Wheels designed by the Creator. The past is left back, … Continue reading If Only…

Surrender

My thoughts finally relent! White, the colour of truce they offer, Arms outstretched, Beckoning for acceptance! No longer they will rebel; They seem to convey. No longer will they stray. Chained they would remain, To the mundane drudgery of everyday. A rebel’s thoughts will henceforth, Not sully or smear A canvas, No outpouring of emotions; … Continue reading Surrender

A Song

When thoughts race; Breaking out of boundaries, Crossing barriers of time, Swamped by memories. Words then seek an outlet and A song is born inside the head. When feelings overwhelm; Anger Wells, Craving to set right, All the wrongs one sees committed. Words then seek an outlet and A song is born inside the head. … Continue reading A Song

Peace

Come let’s go! Floating on aspirations, Armed with determination, Beliefs for company. The turbulent times may attempt, To keel or capsize, Browbeat or terrorise. Irrespective of adversity, Surpassing obstacles, Move ahead. Move ahead! Leaving behind, Roaring rapids, That threaten to sweep, Hurtle and tumble, Or leave off-balance. On even keel Maintain steady progress. Maintain steady … Continue reading Peace

Nurturer

Lapping, gurgling, Constantly flowing. Boundless energy. Water, a gift to humanity. In mountains high, Pristine white. Speaking through raindrops, On leafy boughs and rooftops. Devoid of colour, In spirit a wanderer. A form, a shape, In stagnation, am forced to take. From oceans to the sky, Everywhere I reside. Recycled by nature, This planet I … Continue reading Nurturer
