Offspring

Green long nose
Crown on the top
Lord of the manor
Beard out crop
Wasted all given
No penny to spare
Inheritance lost
Without much care

Sunday seclusion

Sun was shining
Trees singing hymns
Blue and white mating
creating, perfecting whims
greens dew slurping
birds whispered chirpings
river oozing, burping
life’s secret gems
day’s beauty missed
seclusion loudly hissed
the morning is gone
you are still all alone
slowly sans realisation
the seed has sown
a beautiful day passed
another Sunday lost
to what could have been
Let reality hard bite
raw imagination light
commencing life fight
to what should be
Could, and would be
Need that nod, agree
let that mind be free
Time is really short
Need that big heart
Past, rum under bridge
Climb optimism ridge
Let Monday be the day
When future has her say
Keep present accomplice
there is lot to accomplish

∞ Infinity

Counting
Tears in an ocean of sorrows
Counting
dropped leaves on an autumn day

Counting
Days to a joyous morrow
Counting
Smiles on a sunny bright day

Counting
Love expressed by infatuated
Counting
Dreams in a child’s sleep

Counting
Madness of crowds when poked
Counting
Burnt angel wings when a heart weeps

Counting
Steps on way to fabled heaven
Counting
Long sighs during a short tryst

Counting
Lost moments, wasted efforts
Counting
and counting infinity’s infinite list

Hospitality

We met at the train station, it was so good to see her after such a long time. Her beautiful eyes had hints of longing, slight irritation, stories of years passed between us and some satisfaction to see me in good health. She asked her errand boy to give three beautiful marigold flowers to me one by one, he said to me each time in Urdu ‘yay-lo bhaijan’ which meant ‘take this brother’. We instantly laughed hearing that, knowing at least two other ways to interpret ‘yay-lo’. I was home and life was beautiful. My mother gave me a hug and jail time seemed like a distant past.

Lament of incomprehensibles

Odd, strange,
alien, deranged
rude, irrational
qualities, quantity
Being of equanimity
what happened to you
unintended hurt
dry grass dirt
life’s consequences
hate and its sequences
never stop,
perceptions change
pennies exchange
with pounds
screams replace
muted sounds
and end of a
short conversation
brief interaction,
strange abrupt end,
tears can’t be send
or manners can’t be lend
hibernate for another day
in the hope of
few seconds of happiness
tomorrow is spring
fresh dew will bring
misery’s conclusion
life’s inclusion
in ordinary existence

Flight

Distances
In between
Shortest
as the crow flies
I can see your eyes
Farthest
When mind defies
the heart
Running away
No matter
All paths
in the valley
of sorrow
Leads
Feeds
to you
and back
