Redundant

I triumphed over  the odds

Sometimes to slash the thorns

the blossoms on stretched meadows

caressed  wounds while I galloped

as if flying on unicorn

A halt for a while , a shelter under a tree

gathering perspired breaths

rose the spirit to journey

Yeah ! it is the endless path

road to the ethereal resort

tents, huts , caravans

allure midway along

neither any fancies nor any whims

is abreast

to stop  the dreams

The   soul glimpses and carries forth

A new endeavor to survive on!

SCARLET


And  numb …under the orchid

I had awaited your steps since dawn

here you return …when the sun is about to set

When forgotten are promises

Lost are desires ,buried under the soil

The urge has vanished

and I motionless & still

stare at you…

The sun sets with a dab of crimson. It was all scarlet like my blood.

THE HIGHLAND LASS !


Winslow Homer-676928photocredit:www.fineart-china.com
 
O! Nifty , delicate highland lass,
beneath your trampled feet lies my heart
carefully walk and ride the horse
somewhere on the moorland , my soul drags along…whip when you , the lazy horse
watch the lengthy rope
moving in tangent harms
and sheds the cluster of flowers pink
those which hung from branches long.O! princess of mesa,
thou attire the floral skirt…
my love has decked the fabric
with embroider
and life hums the tune
of thy love song.

Herald


Faraway in the coppice
echoes the shrill of a cuckoo
she who sings for her beloved
in melancholic blues…
The ripe blossoms of mango trees
disperses through the grove
Crossing the hill, nearby
reaches the hamlet offshore.

Halt!
Awaits who in the courtyard
The lonely lass
for the pulse of her heart alike the cuckoo,
she too remains hidden and lost…

Asks then the herald
to falling heaven
in joy , whence will the air gladden?
athirst soul, sings for love’s arrival
in wish of a unfulfilled quenching desire…

Light of Wisdom


O! Thee, my ignorant mind seeks the light
there’s darkness everywhere,
knowledge flourishes,
learned is man,
who is the learner,dies the inquisitiveness…
Speaks every mouth,
who doth listen,
forgets the vision, to observe
ears deafen …
O! Thee,
searches my ignorant mind
for the lustrous flower
whose fragrance shall wipe away
worries and ego of power…
Amidst the clouded thoughts and views
of the intellectuals,
I, stand alone
look for that light of wisdom
illumines and kindles
the lost conscience of every soul and enliven.

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…

BRIDE OF ETERNAL GRANDEUR


 

Mist, the heavenly love sprayed in the zephyr

Watched the silvery clouds from above

frosty designs created on heart of earth,

shined the periphery of  the sapphire meadow!

gazed the dancing butterflies with awe

nightingales sang the melody of life

in cadence flowed the river

what a musical opera in concert!

 

Wondrously the colossal mountains stared

at the beauteous spirit of nature

swayed the dense forests

smiled and fluttered the newly born leaf!

far away the mighty ocean roared

asserting its presence

to the distant golden sands

who await to be quenched .

 

Behold! Nature bedecks as a bride,

with jewels of flowers

diffusing the eternal fragrance in air

and a veil of the silken spread

embossing the vista in the saffron glow

ready for the nuptial vows

as a bride of eternal grandeur!

 

I want to touch the rainbow!


There I leap to touch the bow,
colourful and rich in grandeur,
far it moves as I try...
the rainbow floating in the sky!!!
Like a hope of flying,
as a little birdie,
as a fluttering leaf
of a winter chilly...
strive I,to touch the ultraviolet,
the nearest hue which seems over my head,
Drizzled it few hours ago,
now the sun shines with it's glow,
moments of changing seasons and weather
I still stand there to touch the etched brow!
its envision brings smile in a moment,
yet another attempt ,saddens as I fail,
I stand back once more with a new perception...
restarting my dream endeavor.

A Song of heart!


Shreds the veins of the heart

dripping scarlet blood

the piercing words

thy uttered

killing the soft bosom…

 

nurture I the flower of dreams,

crush you with your

crumbled speech

shies away the bud thence,

away from the world so mean…

 

Hitherto to be plucked by the withering time

the moment to perish hasn’t arrived

seasons change in despair

cries the soul in love,profound.

 

Hail ! thy wind

Halt! thy clouds

listen to the wounded core’s shout,

can you absorb the pain and

sing before the Lord!

what should the soul pray for

Peace,Tranquil,or Joy,

Happiness to cherish

or Love from her thou!!!
