THE UNION

Majestically gorgeous and tall

To impress the passionate lover

Put on different charming colours

Without any accomplishment

Realizing, the romantic sweetheart

 preferred zero figure.

They shed the deciduous

Awaiting the arrival of the consummate admirer.

The first encounter of skift of snow

Like a feather tickling the cheeks

He lovingly covered with whitecoat

The expectantly shivering trees

PERPETUAL STREAM.

 

The tantalizing feel was exhilarating whenever I wetted my tender feet of seven years in the cheerful stream in the forest area.   

After sixty years, going through ups and downs of life, I  visited this joyful stream, wetted my wrinkled feet and had the same fascinating feel.

The flowing water of perpetual stream!

Caution the unsuspecting

 

The fan tailed fly catcher pair was seen

Frequenting the area behind the house.

 

The bush of the trimmed bamboo trees

Swaying with delight to see the visitors a new.

 

The melody generator sweet little birds,

 happy to find the place good enough

 

To make the nest guarded and secured

for laying and hatching the eggs  

 

Easy accessed, hidden from evil eyes

Young ones would be sheltered and safe.

 

Hardly they could imagine the lurking,

wicked paws of the jumping cat

 to trample the nest from the branch

which appeared protected and shielded

 

Few months ago, the cat attacked a nest,

pulled it down from the branch.

And oh dear! The young ones from inside,

were picked and gnawed

 

The uncontrollable distress of the parent birds

was beyond anybody’s capacity to bear

 

Somebody should caution

these unsuspecting parent birds.

Of the danger hidden in this

safe looking bush of bamboo

 

Someone should advise them to look for

unrestricted growing bamboo bushes

Where a nest on high branch there

would be out of reach of small four footed.

 

To go away, into deep forest.

Where the domestic cats

won’t be wandering,

with their evil eyes rolling.

THE DEIST

Dr.Satish was a Classical Physicist.

The Quantum theory upset his fundamental ideas.

The smallest atom gave way to 103 particles.

Satish was disturbed.

The string theory replaced particles.

Satish was shaken up.

The three-dimensional universe became many more dimensional multiverse.

“No. I can not rearrange myself any further. God, help me!” Satish said.

MEMOIR                                                          

Many days have passed since I woke up

From the snooze at the window seat of the local train

It has been many days since I lay down on moist grass

Watching the brightening eastern sky

It was many days ago that I got drenched

In the starlight of a no moon night

It was a long time back that I cleared my way

From the shrubs of the hilltop   

  

It has been a long time since I tried       

To gather the moon rays entering my bedroom

It was in a distant past that I got titillated

In the sprinkles of old film songs               

It has been a long time since I had a

Tantalizing drink session with my friends

It has been quite some time since I lost hundreds of rupees

Playing three cards with long lost friends  

 

For months I had no heated arguments

With my friends over the performance of a film actor

Many days have passed since I opened my heart up

and scribbled on a blank paper

I wonder whether the stranglehold of Covid-19, the world over

Has blunted my sensitive heartbeats

Or the news of the deaths of known and adored persons

Has blinded the sight of my inmost mind and made me myopic

O princess of my dream
Will you meet me in reality
Will you open up your feelings

Crowding in your mind
I have always appeared in
The picture you imagined
Which you have been seeing
Day and night

I am confused  watching
Inscrutable movement of your eyes
I hesitate to hold you actually
Close to my heart

I want to take you as my queen and
Place you in my heart sharing
The tenderness of my emotions
To get through sprightly life

We will laugh together
We will cry together
We will be completely united

To live the life together.
Let us break the shackles of
Dreams.  Imagination
And come out in real world
Holding each other

Everyone will mourn only for a few moments

If I go on the long journey of the eternity

Suns will shine, moons will glitter

Stars will follow their routine

Winds will continue blowing

No activity will cease

There will be downpour, crops will grow

With pride, rivers will flow

Nobody will visit the banks of river

Perturbed and worried

Close relatives will wipe their tears

Continuing daily activity with laughter & fun

If I leave this world for ever

What will they lose?

No regret leaving such a world

No getting involved with anyone here

No sending back empty handed the messenger of God

Will merrily embrace the long lasting peace

God

He can not be found in temples
Nor is He traceable in places of worship
He resides only there where people toil.

He does not need thanking him for good things
Nor does he respond to complaints for bad happenings
He just watches the performance in different situations

He does not care for the number of times He is remembered everyday
Nor does He bother about religious rituals
He appreciates only the honest feelings.

Neither does he keep count of incense sticks or candles burnt in front of him.
Nor does he take note of the value of offerings
He just measures the purity of mind.

Neither is it necessary to give up responsibilities
Nor is it required to be aloof from the society.
He understands only duties performed without expecting returns.

Does not matter how small is the action.
Or how insignificant is the thought
But that is the only way to reach GOD.

Whenever there exists a thick bond of love between souls of the couple,

There always is a bright moonlight spreading a web of affection on them.

Shower of pearls of warmth, a frequent occurrence.

The house turning into a shelter of gold of devotion never wavering

Every outing a trip to heaven, each trekking conquering EVEREST,

The avocation of skiing is gliding in the cool fresh air.

Each success in scientific experiment, winning the highest laurels of world,

Barring none, every tiff leading to creating a new spring of tenderness
