Few steps…


DSCF7274

 

few steps and we cross

the gateway of earth

after the crisscross of clouds and few norms

we land on an altar

of stars

beneath , the world appears minute like a dewdrop

here ,we stride in cosmos

beside the planets in backdrop

can we hold and pick them up

place in orbits as we thought?

Life or destiny

can it be aligned and designed as

we presume and want?

DUST


That frame in the corner mocks

a layer of dust adorns

the past

who hath time to wipe

the cobwebs from corner

to cleanse the muck

lying since ages ov’r the stretched bond…

Lost I’m

how far, how long

how do I carry forth

none tried  hitherto…

then how do I ?

How far, how long?

nothingness ahead…

nothingness behind..

Grace me,

O! my heart.

“My Life ain’t a stage “


Endlessly my heart cried
eyes searching frantically in vain
“where art thou”
behind the curtain of life
is anything true or is all disdain?
My life ain’t a stage
neither I a performer to enact or flaunt
in mystical attire as perceived everyone
..I ,a mere soul
wish to be a lotus
blooming in the mud
admiring the sparkling moon afar
from the altar…
Allow me to be my real self
I neither wish to be a actor
nor my life a theatre…
Spare me O! world
from the pangs of hypocrisy
from the rings of falsity
let me break away from the glitter of gold and
tinkling of coins
I’m a mere soul
elated amidst nature
blissfully admiring eternal creation
I live for love and affection.

Thou! Champa!


O! Thou! tranquil peace of my heart
I await your presence
soak me by thy shower of fragranced love
utterly in delight, I whisper!

between the breath of mine and thine
dances the pulsating heart
that which once was mine
now adorns as your part!

Look! thine magic worked upon
the mystique feeling is on
like the champa flowers ,
Thou !enthrall…
I, as the jasmine statued captivated with your fall…

Tis’ your journey


tis your journey,
which you undertake
on the lonesome path
for miles before you rest…
afar lies the horizon,
prickly branches near
the sun will scorch your tender skin’
if you aren’t strong and
stand with valour…
lift thy spirits in dark nights
through dense jungles
scary beings of fear and death
shall haunt you
if you don’t have faith ever.
tis your journey,
O! young soul…
traverse on the path
till you touch the blue sky
and finally kiss the stars….

FAITH !


DSCF3611

What lies forth !

round the bend,where I can’t see!

A blind corner ,

a cliff dangerous,

a valley of flowers

or a dangerous rift!

Is the river flooded,

Can I cross it without oars,

will there be a boat for me

or shall the shore reach beneath my feet in seconds!!!

Is there a palace awaiting my presence

Is there a hut to shelter me in storm,

Will I ever get a tree

when I walk in the scorching sun for long!

Is this my path ,where I tread,

on which I step upon,

or was it around the last corner,

which I left across?

Restless mind, flickering flame

fickle thoughts shall ruin in vain,

brighten the dimmed light of hope

in my  heart !

O! My lord ! with your grace,

Till I walk on the road of destiny

with belief in mind and heart full of faith.

The “Reach” which touches or the “Touch” which reaches?


Ever thought is it the Reach to thousands of people all around the globe that touches them,or is it the Touch which they feel ,makes my verses on my blog accessible?

The long journey ,an interesting one ,it has been on WordPress,since the time I started writing here.

As I have a look at my stats today, I see more than 70,000 views from all over the world . Readers have been here leaving their love and encouragement in form of comments which cross over 13,000 .

People from over  200 countries have visited my blog and it amazes me how we all get connected through this beautiful realm of expressions!

What is it that attracts or pulls?

The words,the poems, my thoughts,the colourful themes…

No, I think its the journey of my learning rather their own where I have got connected to everyone refining me more and more.

Today as the book”Suroor of the Soul” resonates with the audience from varied class,profession,age and gender.

I know its all destined and was!

For now,read the beautiful thought shared by  Uzoma from 85 degress,who is  very well known to us,about the book. http://wp.me/p2KNt5-m2

He includes a small interview of my views and perception too in this link! http://wp.me/p2KNt5-mk

Thank you everyone who has been here and has encouraged,inspired and motivated me to write more and more.

TRIFECTA CHALLENGE-THE DYNAMIC TRAVELER


 Written for TRIFECTA CHALLENGE- WEEK SEVENTY http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/2013/03/trifecta-week-seventy.html

 LUCKY (adjective)… The third meaning of lucky is to be used.

1: having good luck
2: happening by chance : fortuitous
3: producing or resulting in good by chance : favorable

 

As I hear few echoing sounds,

the striking  waves rebound,

in the waters , in the winds,

carrying the fragrance of the dreams…

 Flowing rivers carry the soul,

of the wishes that are just born …

moving from place to place,

dreams get distributed around…

 Many  choose the simpler ones,

some opt  for the  real tough ones,

but the lonesome struggler,

 always desires for

a vibrant colorful one…

Challenges numerous ,

difficulties ahead,

he colors his road,

brightly  in red…

Dreams of  passion ,

fantasy in thoughts,

striving in   real…

for the chosen path…

 

The traveler  dreams of something big,

aiming for the highest peak,

He who dares to walk alone,

with dab of patience and courage can go….

The path to the luciferous   dream isn’t  smooth,

curves and bends, cliffs and terrain will loom,

still the dynamic pedestrian walks,

for his decision is firm as a rock…

Overwhelmed too, the creator gets,

Seeing someone persevere in the best,

He too lends a helping hand,

to the walker in the  distressed land…

Changing the course of the flow,

the Supreme one wants  to show,

Faith and determination 

Can transform the negative forces 

into lucky energies favoring the soul!

THE ROYAL BALL !


Embarking  on a scintillating cruise, I was stumbled to see the gigantic congregation,
a minuscule sense of fear dragged within, feeling lost on the sail so colouring,
Gradually I settled my concern and began to enjoy the jubilation…
 
Adorning myself with a shimmering turquoise gown, I entered the banquet dinner,
thousands of unknown faces were busy with each other,
glasses tingling in their hands,some with clutched designer purses to flatter!
 
As the music flowed and reverberated the hall amidst the silent sea,
several feet started moving on its beat together and more closely,
the band played beautiful enchanting notes,never heard by me!
 
 
I clasped a glass more tightly as I felt like a stranger in the sea of crowd,
A voice gentle and heavy I heard from behind,” Can I dance with you,my lady,for a while”?
I turned around to see the gazing eyes deep and blue, awaiting for my nod! 
 
 
Nothing stopped me from saying no, irresistibly the atmosphere went slow,
As he held my hand and we twirled and danced, on the wooden floor,
lightly and gently he moved along with me and my steps,following him I felt like a princess!
 
 
Minutes passed ,hour was nearing,as were our breath intermingling,
there was a pause as the lights were put off,the clock struck midnight ,
and a loud shout came from all!
Happy new year to everyone here”
enjoy the time throughout the  year”
 
 
I found myself standing with the my glass,half emptied,half full to the sides of the throng!
A voice again I heard from behind,”Ma’am ,do you want more of the sweet wine”,
I got shocked as I thought,was it a dream…
or was that a real ball!
