Rain

Barren land,
Deserted soul,
Thirsty mind,
and the first drop of rain
as if dissolves
the emptiness; the loss;
the dryness of a soul
which knows no affection
as subtle as that of a raindrop.

And the greens that rejoice
at the announcement of nature
marking the descent
of the heavenly elixir
that oh, the Gods have sent
to quench the thirst
of the earthly wonders.

Behold, for when the raindrop falls
and kisses gently
the outstretched palms
of the leaves
longing for love;
they gleam with glee.

Such is the magic of rain
that even light splits
in sheer ecstasy
into seven colors
to bring delight
to the child
searching in the sky
for hues of inspiration.

Mathematics of My Mind

My mind is an irrational number
I wonder.
Goes on an on
boundless and senseless
Full of variables it is
each waiting for a value
to get defined
in this incalculable mess
of my indeterminate mind

Or is it a discontinuous graph ?
with ups and downs
but suddenly,
gets stuck at one point
staring ahead
just a void
I know my destination
but where’s the path ?
No excuses, create one.

Don’t put limits
on this indeterminate mind of mine
O let my imagination
touch infinity!
But do tell me,
Will I ever know
the roots
of such a complex mind ?

The Soul of Flame

O dear, be like the flame

one with inner peace and tranquility

that those who try to shatter

will get shattered themselves

in the radiance of your eternal soul…

Grow more every moment

more than before

don’t forget your roots

you will flicker at times

you will lose your sanity;

lose the permanence

but don’t lose hope…

Let your aura announce

the presence of a dazzling soul

with an inevitable influence

of warmth and compassion

for all those who are, and are not

familiar with your true self…

After adjusting the brightness and contrast of the image, you can see the beautiful aura around the flame. Certainly, a lot of things go unnoticed!

Mystery

In a world, where everything is known to us or is being researched, why not leave a small mystery behind?

A mystery confined to my space, or your space; just a small mystery,

to flee from reality and escape into a world of your own,

Where you can imagine and create!

It will excite you; or probably give you the chills!

But will surely make your mind and heart race with curiosity, and overflow with creativity!

P.S. I heard buzzing sounds from somewhere near my study table, but don’t know what it is exactly (even after a day of frantic search). I assume it’s a large flying insect 😛. It’s a mystery for me! (I am absolutely terrified of bees and wasps, so fingers crossed! 🤞)

What’s your little mystery? 😏

Inspiration

The sun is the body
which sustains the life and existence.
Before this humongous sphere of raging fire,
you learn the value of love and sacrifice
and the power of forgiving and forgetting;
to let go of the negativity which pulls you back,
and rise again to your true spirit!

The moon is the soul
of the night sky;
spreading the message of sobriety and humility;
not blinding you with its brightness,
but adding luster to the plain and lifeless,
with its subtle and soothing glow.
Yes! clouds do come often to overshadow,
but nothing can dim the light that shines from within…

The stars reflect your attitude
to shine amidst the darkness and ambiguity.
It ain’t no matter how small or big you seem to be;
face the challenges and
just keep twinkling…

Embrace the change, take the chance…

autumn leaf

I am perched upon the edge of a brittle branch
holding on to it as long as I can
waiting for a brisk autumnal breeze
to pluck and carry me away,
away from my little abode…

And I’m afraid of this wave of change
Of what it will bring to a delicate thing like me
Ambiguity surrounds me
as I twist and twirl
and make several turns,
cross endless boundaries
and swing to and fro
to finally rest on the ground…

And there I found
many more like me
lying there lifeless
wanting to explore
but waiting for a push…

But then, I was airlifted
the sun glowing through my translucence
not blinding me with its brightness
but adding to my undiscovered glimmer
I found myself at a height,
I doubted I could ever reach
that those who dare to fly
can only achieve…

Alas! the moment didn’t last long
as I glided off towards the world beneath,
twisting and twirling again
falling again…

But now I wasn’t afraid
Cause’ I have seen the ‘lift’
and I have seen the ‘glide’
And I have seen the spiritless
and I dared to take a chance
I dared to be different…
