And a Broken Mug

I have no words, No rhymes, No music. But a tear, a sorrow, a regret. Old memories and some pictures perfect.   I have no emotions that are ‘on sale’, They stay. But just a song, an ivy, And a tower called ‘Malory’. Some rainbow coloured bands and a few promises.   I have with …

Silent Wishes

If I knew how to let silence speak, I would’ve gathered the leaves Of a fallen autumn And let the winter Sun spread its warmth. I would’ve built a heap of the running brooks like sand dunes in the Sahara. Formed a canopy of green under a firmament so blue and let swallows chitter in …

Agony of War (Speaks)

The shadow of Kalinga hangs on. Crippled bodies sublime in ancient battlefields. Fiends and edentates rule the World. And souls wilfully escape into a world without bondage.   Pain and hunger, Sufferance, The Earth in peril. “Martyred? Aye! Nations immortal sons!” With their mortal remains long lost.   We weep silent tears and count those …

Into an Unknown

In the cavern of my heart A yearning. All glory lies faded With suburban shades of grey.   A resignation Of past scintilla. And bubbling aspirations buried and forgotten.   A beginning, flashes of tomorrow. Lucid, Wanted, Awaited.   A new world and brightness, Let go yesterday. Allow my days to grow, Placid Quiet Unknown.

A Utopian Vision

A dream, a reverie A train of thoughts and fantasies Harmony set to music By the glitter of starry concordance; And a World Beyond Human Bondage. Mornings full of visions, And anticipation Of another Sun. A thousand rays Drying up a dewy assemblance, And a termination Of another monotony. Into a horizon of hopes, Set …

A Lilliput Song

Raindrops, Saplings, Tears enclosed in sandal cases Moments grown and lived, Remembrances and reminiscences Of yesteryears so dear! The Golden Gate Of a dilapidated castle, Kings and Queens and crowns A treasure Island In Lilliput Days Lost and never found! Pink and purple Laces and ribbons, Marbles and laughter Memories scattered ocean deep, No pearls …

To Mummy

(An emotional letter penned by an aborted foetus to her unclaimed mother)   Dear Mummy, The stars are out in the sky And the moon has been singing the lullaby, I’ve had a lovely meal tonight And the day was also almost fine! Yet, I miss your cradle- songs And all your lovely ways; I …

My Unchained Melody

Bury me today. Bury my thoughts And cover them with misty joy. Evade all dark clouds from over my tomb, And carve happiness on my epitaph. Give me wings of Icarus, For the flight of a liberated spirit. Tell my wings to fly me Past unseen horizons. And just when My heart is brimming With …

Call Me a Soldier

(Penned in the emotional hours of the Kargil War) Make me valiant, Let drops of blood from my veins Fall on the ground below. Canons and bullets, Let them pierce through my flesh. And my soul escape this worthless body. Let my heart tell the profound story Of this battlefield. And my bashful hands help …

The Celestial

I wish to talk about the ‘celestial’… A cherub, A sunshine, The eighth colour of the rainbow, A smile, A togetherness, A bond, A tomorrow, A promise, A tear, A holding, A forever, A ‘let go’; I wish to talk about the ‘celestial’… Of silent voices, Of listening, Of two pair of feet, Of evening …
