Shades of grey

white, black and in between
all shades are eternal
unknown reflections
unheard sounds of passion

a water lily says to a rose
in deep north when all froze
how you survive, and revive

I go grey, and stay in dark hearts
until I hear spring calling my name
greens, blues, pink became
in existence again

a full bloom rose is required
to conclude season’s surprise
I rise, love is the prize
for grey’s sacrifice

Glorious exceptionalism (an anthem for being different)

you standout
from the crowd
believe deliverance
trust in difference

come on
you stand,
standout
from the crowd

what is holding you back
have courage, sail
you will, unarguably, fail
many times,
most of the times

just believe,
standout
standout
from the crowd
from the crowd

pick yourself up
dirt will disappear
a new you appear
bask in glory

standout
from the crowd
they are waiting
standout
from the crowd

doubters, shouters
hooters, looters
will feel sorry
for what they did,
they should

standout
standout
from the crowd
you deserve it!

Thousand stories lurking

does a story need an explanation,
a beginning and ending
a heroine, a hero, a saviour landing

a jester, a villain, thousand characters
undefined, just mentioned, since they
have an ordinary life, not worth telling, or selling

background noises, low and loud voices
eccentricity, abnormality, excitement
trickery, treachery and enticement

why plot always thickens, never slackens
pulse always quickens, so does music
when it comes at a juncture,

good and evil warring factions,
pauses, screams and inactions
why a story needs to be told

Earth, Sky could be better
with nothing but a mundane living
if it is in peace, contentment release

it is a thought, may be not to our liking
sometimes better than faking
or lacking, adventure being seek

a story where there is none
narrated by someone
totally trustworthy, made to lie

and fabricate, for true amusement
of few, who knew, from the beginning
what transpires, creativity inspired

a story, an epic, a tale,
I come up with one, every day,
without fail, just to see you smile

Last one

Let’s decide how much life I have got
Can you see me? I am the one in the middle
No! this not a riddle, I am the one, really in the middle
Some green life of my mother, Earth, left in me
Your feet are itching, to suppress me and press me
Hard on the ground, stopping my pulse abruptly
Don’t be so cruel, don’t be a fool
No fuss, but do you know
life on earth depend on us
You have this sense of invincibility
Master of the universe
Writer of this verse
Shame on you
Blame on you
Of all my mother’s woes
She is sick
Dying from, lack of fresh air, clean water
Killing forests is a non starter
What you get,
El Niño, el nina,
polar vortex, Katrina,
Keep denying, keep heading towards me
As I speak up, heave my last few breaths
You decide, upto you, yes, upto you!!

Blurred reality

Waking up somewhere unknown
dawn colours blurred,
vision impaired
enjoying these moments
of confused existence
mind without sustenance
of logic or thought
no solution sought
of centuries of neglect
Suddenly! mind starting to reflect,
Agh, it is noon, so soon
Can someone stop the time
Why? are you God?
