Amid the sounds of birds and the waves,
In that hour when the Sun set quietly I watch,
It goes with a promise to rise again the next day,
I wonder whether I will be a witness to it again,
It may be on the horizon of blue ocean,
Or behind the peaks of mighty mountains,
It’z orange hue always leave me in awe,
Silently it lets the moon to guide us in the dark,
This silent Sound-less interchange of gold and silver,
Shows the mighty humbleness of the universe so vast.
#For daily prompt Sound
Dedicated to my better half Arun Prabhakar.
Valentine’s day so much hype around a day,
Some may be bestowed with too much love,
While others may feel uncared and not loved,
For me it is an ordinary day,
The rain has made it special,
And my “morning friends” are in a mood to play.
When i think of love it is not just for a day,
It is not in red roses or chocolates or a ring,
It is not holding hands or forever vows,
These are just gestures which may fade away.
For me love is to let other be,
To let other have the freedom of choice,
To let other have a few thoughts of his/her own,
To let other decide what he/she wants,
To let the other feel partner not a slave or sub-ordinate,
To let the other agree or disagree on the same thought,
To walk apart but together not in front or behind,
To live the love day-to-day in countless ways.
I know I can decide matters minor to major,
I need no permission but just a communication,
That is the Love which only fortunate may have
Yes, after 17 years of marriage i may not had a Valentine’s day,
But Respecting my individual being is most precious gift,
I get from him everyday ,
And it makes my everyday -“ A Valentine’s day”
P.S. Trust is the oxygen & Giving space to each other is the life-line of a relationship.
Every step I take it may be of some worth
A milestone may give me courage to move ahead
One step wrong and all is gone
So I contemplate my every act
In this journey of precious life
But one day I got tired of so much stress
And seriously looked at myself
The seriousness with which I analyzed
I finally realized Life is just a matter of breath
Oh dear life really what you are?
Nothing tangible or touchable,
You never make-up your mind,
One way or the other,
You may say there is only one way,
But never reveals what awaits me,
Everytime I feel confident of my footstep,
You through a new challenge towards me
But have you realized from my point of view?
Even in the sleep I am always on my toes,
Pleass have a good look at yourself,
Your playing with us lesser mortal,
Leading to nothing but an end,
An END where neither i nor you
Neither of us is going to wins.
Dedicated to the most precious Love of my life And all other children
who crave for the Freedom to walk on their own
From where I stand today there are precious moments lost,
Was it my fault that I couldn’t stand-up for myself at that time?
Or Was it the effect of the handed-over thought process?
In retrospect all suffocating was result of inactions,
These thoughts leave me scared for my very existence
The life is beautiful in it’z simplicity
Why feed the mind with borrowed stuff,
It may be relevant for different time & space,
Why cheat myself just to be on the right side of others?
Why even feel obliged to please everyone but self?
Why create robots when there are enough around?
Living without the will of their own,
Think for a moment if we still can do so,
It may not be too late to know the limitless,
The freedom of existence without obligation.
If we can wake-up now to acknowledge ourself,
It may help new entrants to carve the path in their own ways
Then perhaps the suffering and suffocation of soul may end,
And mother Earth may smile once again.
Thanks. It is good way to meet like minded people
Ignoring the capacity of drawers and shelves space
We think It has unlimited storage place
We keep putting things in ever nook and corner
And one day when it can hold no more
Silently collapse leaving behind a scattered mess
Then we realise nothing we stored was needed
It was only our mindless hoarding
May be because we had a place to keep
We burnt our energy and valuable resources
Just to satisfy our ego which always crave for more
This is how we look at life ,-a Space
Filling it with unwanted feelings and emotions
Increasing unhappiness by not letting anything go
And when it is time to go we leave with a burden
Except a lucky few who kept the space uncluttered &pure
Watching the sunset that day my thoughts wandering
My focus on the beauty of ever changing fiery colors
Fascinated as always by the humble Sun
My friends happily enjoying their evening meal
Unaware that this was the last meal of this year
Next day duty bound the Sun rose at tbe same time
The chirpy friends at the window at the same time
I asked them what has changed in one night ?
They said nothing else but it is only human perception
The nature is neither a slave nor it is bound
Year end or begin is futile effort to limit the limitless time
What one day end has changed in our lives ?
Still the poor of this world continue to suffer
Innocent people are being killed in the name of religion
Animals are being slaughtered for human pleasure
Million years may begin and come to an end
An year is just to bring order to the chaos of daily life
Only Love is the beginning and end for PEACE in our lives
