WHEN I CALLED………

I have called out once

In wilderness……..

Profound silence,

Abhorring sounds,

I have searched……

 

Days have passed

Voices in my head……

Thrusting echoes

Lamenting woes…..

So many pastures I have tread.

 

Leaves …..dry and pale,

Wake up and see

Whose feet has shaken their being

Trees would not have them back again……

 

I call out again….

and now the forest frowns,

Did I not know….

That spring has drowned?

 

No, I shall not return,

The falling leaves are

Dear to me……

 

I know that spring 

Has left your abode…….

I have met harsher  winds

That are yet to come your way.

 

 You have an entire world

Rooted deep within

Yet you look for seasons……

 

Wherewith shall I go then

To surmise a world

Dug up as deep……..

Flowered and leaved 

Even if only for spring………

 

 

 

 

Rainbow in my heart……..

Is that

A rainbow in the sky?

I touch and see

And want to know why……

 

On some days the colours

Are more refined…

And they seem to bow a little

As if they just smiled.

 

The Sun has shone

Upon some gloomy drops;

These colours have then formed

Mystically………my heart stops.

 

Can I carry it

forever in my being?

Chastened and humbled

The rainbow……fathomed in my dreams…..

 

They told me the Sun

Does not always shine;

Let me at least be enthralled…

If I cannot make it mine.

 

A chastened white light

That bursts into hues….

Upon that one blessing

while the Sun does muse……..

 

Let me at least;

carry a rainbow

To nurture and define………

 

I have not yet looked within

For fear of being blinded.

Perhaps, what I surmised,

Has finally unfolded.

 

I have clouds

And I have mist….

Cascading waterfalls…..

All in my fist.

 

If the Sun were to

Only send a ray…..

Millions of rainbows

Would run astray…….

 

Prophetic and sublime

Every wave stands to witness;

How every shade would blend….

How these colours I would harness…..

 

Oh!fathom not so….

Let me only conceive

A paltry rainbow

The world may not perceive……

 

And let me then,

Own it with all the might;

It would then not matter…..

For I could explore depths

And challenge heights.

When does a great day happen…….

 Just wondering….what makes a great day a great one.

“Is it simply a good start
or the simple words coming from the heart
Some seek it in the divine
and know that all is fine…….
 
Someone has learnt to pedal today
And rides his heart away……..
Someone has seen a lost friend
In a crowd that didn’t seem to end.
 
A broken heart has probably smiled…
The storm within has finally  died
Some kind words have been spoken
To compliment and to awaken….
 
A fresh breeze has touched a face
And gently when the hair does trace……
The lips and blushing cheeks
A lover quietly peeks…
 
All the lows are here forgotten
And every path that lay untrodden
Holds a charm that comes anew
To discover weeds sparkling with dew…..”

 
 
 
 

THE IRONY

1237127_434474459994748_597966010_nThere are times
When you have fought 
—-and lost
You believe in this game
You believe strongly
That this was not meant to be
That the Sun does always hurt……
 
Then arrives a cloudy morn
When your eyes trace
The flight of every bird
There is so much grace 
In all you see
And  oh! so intriguingly
The Sun peeps out
As if asking
If he could as much as look at you
With promises to give you warmth;
To be at your beck and call……..
 
There are times
when we have fought
And lost
And there are times like this 
When we have lost all
And have known the irony of it all………
 
That its only when you lose;
You find hope to survive
That its only when you are dumped upon a haystack;
The sun begins to shine
That only when the forest is dense
A beautiful patch; a clearing
Welcomes you……
And its oh! so divine
 
What lies beyond that horizon 
Is not for us to see;
Yet for miles at a stretch
We have millions of worlds to fetch…..
Interstices to fill….
 
Why is it then…….
we have to fail?
 
It suffices though, to say
That we have fought
Ceaselessly;
And just when we think it was not meant to be…..
We see the leaves smiling on every single tree……
