The Jungle Path

Done with a ball-pen...

Anatomy of Khowai*

Heart kept in the cup of my palm

Turned red with rust

The meandering route snakes

Through my body greyed with dust.



Now from the branches of eucalyptus

The crescent moons are hanging.

Thousands of moons

Fall and fill to bury me up

One by one



Each moon turns into…

The Ocean and The Moon

Long long ago.

Once upon a time,

In a distant land,

There was an ocean –

Pure and white,

Vast with passion profound.

 

One night,

Gazing at the starry sky,

Unknowingly he committed

A beautiful blunder!

He fell in love with the moon!

 

Unaware was the Moon,

About this passion

From the unknown lands.

 

She was a fairy always carefree.

Hailing from the green…

The warriors for a cause

They are the warriors for a cause,
Concerned they are never
Of their self-importance.
Cared never did they,
To be loved, or accepted.
They do not desire to appear
Good to other’s eyes.
They never cared for their safety,
Nor stability.
They hated to “settle down”.
They loved many,
Not expecting any love in return.
They helped many,
Not expecting any…

Why am I feeling so lonely?

Why I am feeling so lonely?

Walking under the star lit sky,

Holding hand of the bright full moon,

With the invisible hands of my sight,

By the roaring sea shore,

On the cold sand,

Why am I feeling so lonely?



I have millions of stars,

Watching me walk barefoot.

Millions of galaxies

Silently passing me their blessings,

In the silent cold night,

Interrupted with the roars of waves!

Why am I feeling so lonely?



So…

Gods of the world

Do I need to believe

In stories and myths?

Do I need to believe in

Fairy tale characters as Gods?



Do not I have Gods all round me?

In the form of lovely friends,

Family and fellow brethren?

Why do I need to enclose myself

In the dungeon of my head

Contemplating a hypothetical entity,

Whose experience is itself

Borrowed either from a book

Or Another human –

In flesh, blood and passion.



I proclaim not

The…

Am I just a human?

Am I just another living creature?

With flesh and blood,

And some say soul.

With my prejudices,

Beliefs, fears, biases,

And superstitions!

 

Am I just another living creature?

With a sense of right and wrong,

Good and bad,

You and me,

Ideas of interesting and boring!

 

Am I just another living creature?

Struggling to make ends meet,

Sweating to ear my living,

Managing with my…

An Alter Life

Living from morning to night,

Birth to death, do I live many alter lives!

Phases they come in, and pass by,

Like changing seasons.

Have I died so many a times,

Have been born afresh –

With new hope and new love!



Various shades of the rainbow,

Each held impeccably stretched

Across the sky of my awareness.

Each shade sings a new song,

Writes a new poem,

Sends a new blessing!



In some shade,

They call me a…

Sometimes it is better unsaid...

With all its love,

The great banyan tree,

Has spread its restful shadow,

Giving solace to countless travelers!



With all its care,

The Nile has provided for,

Many civilizations,

Since eternity!



With all its warmth,

The Sun has been giving,

With all its power,

Vigor and light to countless

Beings on this planet!



The road has been

Enduring with patience,

All hardships of countless feet,

Tires and…

Ramblings of a maverick – A Love Story from a dream

Walking down the archaic lanes,

Beside vast green farms,

Met I one sunny bright day

A woman with the Most Beautiful Eyes!

Instant was the intoxication –

My soul allowed itself to be possessed with her love!

For one simple reason –

There was an ageless attraction,

With no expectation anywhere!

 

This is the story of

The most beautiful woman!

More beautiful than any that reality can afford.

Too divine…

I am Mr Valenstein

My left brain entirely collapsed,

And got assimilated into the right one.



At first 'twas intense, revolting pain;

Now just numb, supine.



I fail to see any logic now and no reason why.

Forgive me for I imagine things like,



I have become thy ear drums,

That create the music in your ears.



I have become the breeze that

Caressed your skin yesterday.



I have transformed into your tears.

I swim in your eyes as you see… Continue

Nothing is your, nothing is mine.

It is at the verge of giving up...
That we should always be.
And expect no miracles,
But a mere passage of time.

That will keep us strong;
Determined in the face of nothing!
Confidence out of 'absolutely nothing'
Is a tough ask!

And that is when you get a glimpse
Of the real me/we.
Something to attain,
That ultimate reality...

Nothing is your,
Nothing is mine.
And yet,
It all is!

The Paradise of Illusion

Drugged in love,

Drenched in passion,

Of some divine attraction,

Was I swaying on the waves of life.



Only did I see bright tulips miles before me,

Bright blue sky, embracing the meadow green.

The hue of love decorated every ray of the Sun,

Weaving a tapestry of rainbow

Glue together with the bond of illusion.



For even a blowing wind,

Would appear as your loving caress,

A causal twitter of the sparrow,

Would appear as your… Continue
