Prophecy of Doom

Shadows of time past,
haunts,
dreams of morrow

hollowed today
paves the way
harsh and narrow

Sins of fathers,
Visits,
the graves of the sons
With inescapable candor

Leaves,
An inexplicable sorrow
In the glow of shine-less sun
And a moonless night

Leaf

Come with me dear,
have no fear!
I will take you to places,
with wide open spaces

wild n exciting, the eternal dance
round and round,
to see the world all around!
Come on darl take a chance….

the wind beseeched

tempted the leaf, leaves the tree
Lost in the dancing spree,
It touches the sky,
Flying high,

Sun showers his glory on it,
while the birds sing farewell
Oh! the leaf never knew,
it has but, moments few

happy for time, brief…

Twirling and swirling,
soon it lands,on the ground
And the rakish wind?
alas, cannot be found

Ah what a leech!

For greener pastures,
and younger allure,
abandoned, left astray
the leaf gently, drifts away

drowned, in grief

autumn leaves in life,
abandoned with promises,
lost, in an abyss
Like forgotten kisses…

in sands of time

The Flower….

Danced with the wind,
Gentle swishing,
Spreading my heavenly fragrance
Swaying to the tune
Of the blue jay’s croon
With my dear ones near
I was not happy
Was longing for vagrance….

I wanted to see the world,
find places and people
Adorn a lovely lady’s braid
I was never afraid,
Embraced the future, that unfurled

Hands of destiny heard my prayer,
I was plucked, kept in the foyer
With thousands of different others,
Fearful and teary they were,
Of myriad different colors,

I was on the spur….

A lady took me as an offering,
to the mighty lord.
I was strung in a cord,
I glowed in heavenly light
There was no end to my delight!

Soon the day turned to night,
And the gush of devotees turned to trickle
I never realized, fate was fickle,
Lost my charm, color and smell
alas, from the grace, I had fell

Unceremoniously dumped in the bin,
wherein the muck and dirt, to the edge cling
Trampled all over, left to rot
I thought I was for a spin,
The memory of home, in my throat caught..
I remembered the beautiful shady tree,
my home;
Where blue jay’s sing, to the wind…

Left alone , no one to hear my sighs.
I realized;
Travels of mind, are of different kind,
With friends, and laughter
Where bees sought after..
me;
thats where my world lies,

alas it was too late….
I had finally resigned to my fate

My dream?

Empty nights and listless days,
A journey of open eyes,
Where does the blame lie?
Will they ever go away?

As sun peeps, from behind the hills,
And birds sing farewell,to the beloved moon
And welcome the crimson dawn,
I stifle the budding yawn,
Its about time, I pop some pills,

For the dream goddess won’t come,
Unless invited,
Under effect of the drug,
My favorite bunny I hug,
snug……

Asleep finally, All set to visit
Myriad different places,
That my mind traces,
On the canvas of induced sleep

I visited some hidden lands,
Untouched unexplored,
Where the flowers bloom
In colors galore

I swam with the swan,
The deers I out ran,
Within a short span,
A new journey I began

Caravan of tears,
Intense and dark,
I faced my fears,
Naked and Stark.

As if on wings,
I suddenly flew,
With the sun,
In the sky so blue

Tittered with the birds,
Sashayed with the cloud,
Danced with the recalcitrant wind
Sang songs with lyrics, absurd

Like the twigs and the leaves
I drifted,
delighting in every view,
Each of a different hue,
Was I really gifted?

Thats when I felt someone push
Down I went, in the bottomless pit
Awake, I threw a fit!
“Why can’t you hush?”

Alas, the alarm can’t hear
As I press the button,
The variegated image faded,
And I am awake, Jaded…

Love of mighty sun

The brightest shade of yellow they are
I see them from afar,
Lest I mar their beauty,

Such Is our love,

I burn till eternity
While they live in gaiety
I Alit, they aglow,
I,alone above!

They,
Sway with the breeze
dance with the bees
Smiling with ease

Unaware, innocent..they tease

Silent witness,
That I am,
The wise one,
I wait, I know

Enfettered by time,
They will die,
In dust they will lie

Spent….
Away from my realm

As I go down the horizon

Overwhelmed,
Embittered
I mourn

They await me,
Dream about in sleep
With the first glance

They leap…..

Follow my trail
All through the day
Wait for my touch

The ebon sky that lit,
In thousand shades,
has long faded

As the amber gold,
soon turns back
into inky blue

It is you I wanna hold
Alas,My midas touch
Keeps me away

Cursed, I burn,
The ever so might sun,
Oh my dear flower,
Yours forever

I burn,
Die thousand deaths
For you I await

The oasis of dawn
I wait,
For glimpse of happiness
That kowtows to gloom
As I, to moon

Dream


Dreams destined to forever gleam,
In dark recesses of my mind..
I wonder what will I find,
Beyond the glitzy glamor
All is not as they seem

And yet, every night is the same
I am lost , totally insane
purple dreams and silvery nights
An unwilling battle I fight
will I ever win?

Love

Meandering in the park,
Thinking.. why love?
What makes it so special?
Why am I still in dark?
What exactly is love?

Thats when I saw a bee
Moving flower to flower
Dancing in glee
I asked the sweet fragrant rose
Why him?
he is so disloyal dont you see?

I live for just a day,
The rose said,
I would rather spend few moments with him,
Alive n gay, forever close
Or I would be dead

Confused I reached home,
Deep in thought, I went to balcony,
Enticed by the nightangle’s symphony
I asked,” Tell me about this love syndrome”

She laughed at me outright!
Love cannot be explained in words
It needs heart’s insight
How do I express what I feel
An experience Surreal

Flummoxed I went inside,
A lamp burnt by the windowsill
A fluttery firefly embraced
shimmering flame, I was enraged
Did you have your fill?

Is this what you call love oh flame??!!
A soul died, you are to blame!
It said, ” Love, you will never understand”
Coz love doesnt demand,My friend
It withstands, Marks of destiny,
For I am left to tell this story,
While the fly gets all the glory

Again, I thought,
What the heck is love?
Is it emotion overwrought?
For it, battles are fought
Dangers dared,
Many have despaired
And yet, it is
Forever sought!!
