The Perfect Vision

Dedicated to humanity

I stood in front of a little wooden box
Mellow at first touch,
And coarse by the next
Curious, I slid open its crest.

It had two pairs of glasses
One rimmed with a golden frame
The other all rotten and rust
I decided, that try them I must.

Eternal Spirit

The eternal soul is an unquenched thirst in our mind for perfection, a fire burning deep within each one of us, an unresolvable enigma whose purpose is beyond human understanding. Yet seek it is what we do, day in and day out.

You exist formless like the wind
You take no shape and yet
Complete the incomplete
Filling my void.

A Gentle Sob

As I complete another chapter in my life and shift on to a new place and new friends, I ponder over these games that fate plays in life and the ache one feels while parting with a stable lifestyle and some close friends! Hopefully all these are for something good ahead.

It was a beautiful journey
Down the green mountain valley.
Cheerful and gay
I looked forward to every day.

The noise of the engine
Never spoiled our chatter;
The sounds of others around
Was lost in our laughter.

The Flower

Is nature simply a reflection of the thoughts in our mind? Then how is it possible that two people look at the same object and yet come up with views so differently? Something that I tried to translate when watching a blooming flower

From the barren land
Will rise a Kingdom
Where this story shall be told.

A small fortress of green
Shall sprout from nowhere
Holding a spirit divine.

Antonym

We have a very strange history here on earth. For anything that we make, we seek ways to destroy. For all the heart breaks we suffer, we still long to love and do good. I was thinking what god would be thinking, looking at us. My thoughts here.

I wonder what god will have to say
While looking back at us
Will there be pride and joy?
Or anguish and disdain?

Festival of Lights

Birth – is amazing; seeing the baby react to the first sounds of light, sound and touch – scintillating; knowing that god trusts you by putting a little one in your care – moment of truth!

She is the golden ray

The dawn on a foggy day

She is the harbinger of joy

Of hope, peace and love…

One Last Wave

We cling on to everything we hold dear; addicted to our materials – even when knowing, within, that we are just a fleeting moment in the passage of time. Nature shows everyday how it all works; that everything is bound to pass away. Yet even when walking the last line of life it is the human nature to observe and yet not realize. We are left asking just a little bit more.

I stood by the shore,

Wide eyed – in rapt attention;

It was a scene straight from a dream

As I saw the water rise and fall.

Weather The Storm

My feelings and thoughts vented out seeing the crisis that some of us manage to put ourselves into, even with the given opportunity and time. Perhaps it shows, more than clearly, that we have a long way to go before we gain the trust of others who manage themselves better and more importantly that we need to put our thinking caps on and regain that lost self pride.

I stood there in the porch
Waiting for the sun to come out;
Little did I know the storm was dense
That we were already blind in every sense.

Search For My Mystic Land

An ode to a mystic land that lives in my memory. A place where I’ve never been to, nor ever will, but like any powerful idea it still dwells deep inside me as if I am a part of it from ages long ago!

My mind is lost
In the mystic land
The one I hear in yore
A legend that is now long gone!

Down The Rotten Hill Again

A self realization of the fact that, even for those at the top of the world, what is to be shall be.

I stood at the point where there was no fence.
It was a beautiful view of the sea beneath.
It was a scene worth the climb uphill.
But was my effort in vain?
For I have nowhere to go now
But down the rotten hill again!
