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 Spark of Life

Events that in recent past have engulfed humanity to sadness. Scenes that seem to repeat themselves from a nightmare, that we long to forget. Have we forgotten that showing kindness and empathy only makes us stronger and not weak?

Several decades ago when we were waking ourselves from a nightmare that the world war was, all eyes turned East to salvage some pride. It needed a Gandhi for the world to come to the realization that what we really needed was a war without weapons, a fight without words.

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?

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!

Escape From Reality

Stop, think and proceed no matter how wrong you are going! The pause would, perhaps, suggest faultless excuses and produce perfect pretenses to the deceptive mind, and maybe hide the true intentions behind this journey!

In all effectiveness fear fuels hatred, lust beckons anguish, greed sows the seed of misery and jealousy douses the flame of love. If only we know what we do to ourselves through words said and unsaid, through actions done and withheld, then, perhaps there is more chance to free ourselves from unwonted ends, escape from unexpected twists of fate and maybe even find a better salvation to our otherwise miserable souls!

The Eternal Quest

A poem written for a picture post in a public forum. I could connect with the pic in the form of a struggle a human undergoes at some point in life during the eternal quest for peace.

And here I lie
Trapped in ethereal waters
Of joy and sorrow,
Of ecstasy and pain,
Of life and death!

Enliven

A poem that talks of things binding us to things physical/ mental

What do you do when
You are devoid of nothing
And seeking solace in incidents
That shall never repeat again?
In a history that never happened?

What kind of a person
Sleeps on an ignited mind
Tending to fold wings
That strive to stretch beyond reason?
Who’s un-free to free self?

The Incomplete

Life is probably incomplete without (these) subtle meanings to mundane things!

That which is given
Purporting only to give
With no expectations
Will touch the soul
Much deeper than the same superior act
That is done for the own self
And with the intent of showing
Pity and sympathy!

That which is preached
Simply to preach
With no malice in words
Will emboss in the heart
Much stronger than words
Those teach the same fine things, with
An attempt to instill
Fear and contempt!
