Travel travails

Go fly, in the red sky
end of journey
someone is waiting
to give you flowers
happiness and powers
to change all what is
around us, thus
don’t wait, don’t be late
it is your calling, risk of falling
who cares, destiny dares
grab and go, never show
weakness in the hour of need
thousand minds to feed
inspiration, elation, relation
to love, life, and leaving
as whatever we see here
is fickle, dime and nickel
tease and tickle, compared
to what is waiting,
on the other side, so ride
cross red tide, burning sun
reach limits of the sky, fly

Canvas

Life canvas
You throw some colours
glitter and ribbons
make it sparkle
Happiness roams free
Soon after
you turn off the lights
Put it in storage
with all other garbage
Like a fake
Christmas tree!!

In the tunnel again

After a long time
I entered that tunnel again
Memories are not very kind
Squishing you under their boots
Planted thousand trees without fruit
And my heart was the cheap loot
Was trampled on, crushed uncountable times
Till there was satisfaction, clock chimes
Thirteen and fifth quarter of the hour
Tears replaced water in the shower
Guards ready to fatally shoot from the tower
When I escape emotions prison
with million justifiable reasons
still considered life ending treason
I am forced to enter that tunnel again
And I cry uncontrollably on the first step
No one to console, just me and darkness
lack of colours, mind’s starkness
and ignoring, unobserving, faceless passerby
Unable to lie, to myself or any of you

Nature grills sapiens
pertinent requisitions
piercing inquisitions
Humanity ignores
convenience sake
No physical pain felt
No catastrophe of worthy dealt
Till now, till now
Waiting for Armageddon
Setting up earthly Eden
with wasted precious source
created in toxic chimneys
poison gathered
being scattered,
land reclaimed,
new destinations proclaimed
Why run to ruins,
what for, blame who
Unanswered, ignored
look the other way
waiting for
an unscheduled
judgement day

Longing

Desires are mere manifestations of our souls
Cravings we have, inseparable hearts
Beating million miles apart
In a parallel universe
Song of longing and belonging
To us, to you, to universe
Reality is lost somewhere in between
Creates a tornado of affection never seen
Come, reside in my dark lump of blood
It becomes a red rose in the garden of Eden
A palace of unmatched beauty
Once you have been
Visit me once in a blue moon, latent maiden

Reflections

Sweet dreams caressing my eyes
Your voice giving solitude a hope
The day I see you, happiness unfathomable
Will come, alas, my heart won’t cope
Throw a few rose petals on my coffin!

Humanity – the book

The current civilisation of Human species has come a long way in the last five thousand years. The technology is mesmerising, architecture astounding and knowledge is touching nebulae and far flung galaxies. Our values however are perhaps not showing same level of progress. There is continuous war and hunger. Inequality is increasing every moment, pursuit of wealth has made most of us blind from the misery of our brethren living just few moments away from us. Environment is a concern for the tree hugging minority only. Destruction of forests, extinctions of wildlife species and increasing temperatures globally is a commonality not even worthy of daily news anymore. This age of individuality and trying to live life through social media has made our planet more ignorant, less tolerant and a troll infested realm. I hope, wish and pray that some of these terrible trends will reverse in the not so distant future and humanity snaps out of this current craze of abominable behaviour. This short book of poems and images try to highlight my humble observations in an abstract setting.

I will try to spread this message of compassion and equality until the time is upon me. Here is the latest instalment in the form of a book at IBOOks store (free)
