Beautiful sunrays….

 

O sunrays. …..

 

Amazingly filtering in through trees

Appearing to dance with the breeze

You bring life into a quiet road

Inspite of no direction or a signboard

Your light warms my heart

You always give the day a jump start

Energy is your second name

Without you nature will be at shame

Feels blessed to just have you around

As you infuse life without a sound !!

Prison life

In a prison I stay

Nothing comes my way

Yet to see light of day

Is everyday a new day ?

 

Of dark cement walls

Gloomy visions

Scribbling in halls

Are mere illusions

 

Uniform clothes

Meagre food

Everything soul loathes

Wonder what’s good

 

No freedom to talk

Let alone a free walk

Staying in a little cell

As good as piece of hell

 

Writing myself out

In words galore

My hearing’s next

Life’s like a folklore

 

Will see light of day

When something comes my way

In a prison I stay

Till I see light of day..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A night scene

 

The night envelops me

In shadows of black

Heartfelt emotions

Engage back to back

 

Talks with faint mist

Reveal true secrets

Vaporous soul breathes

Like sleeping egrets

 

A dull moon peeps

From curtains of grey

Hauntingly weeps

Not knowing what to say

 

Eyelids droop, sleep lures

Into tentacles of dreams

Mesmerising lullaby cures

In the moon’s velvet weaves

 

 

Mumbai

 

Smoke, traffic chaos in full glare

Mumbai, spare me some clean air

 

Garbage stinks, roads littered too

No one cares, apathy rules true

 

Of nullahs, drains, waterworks, lakes

Cleanliness here is often put at stake

 

Packed trains, roads never a blessing

Trust the BMC to always go digging

 

Journey to work, homecoming a task

I know why the trafficman wears a mask

 

Would like to breathe, lovely city of mine

Stop the din, create a place of sunshine

 

Put in order, discipline with a flair

O Mumbai, just spare me some clean air

Cactus

 

Dry with thorns, not a face to please

Thick, tall or strong, oh facts do tease

 

Desert’s child, growing wild

Blooming once, while being mild

 

Sand its roots, the sun’s a friend

Moisture it traps, is pricky to no end

 

Arid zone’s darling, not one is the same

With unique shapes, it does get a fame

 

A poor man’s plant, no effort required

Plant it anywhere, grows as desired

 

Accurately unique in nature’s prospectus

A plant of all seasons.. yes that’s a Cactus !

 

 

Indian Summer !

 

Its hot as hell, summer’s at a peak

Energy levels low, little shade I seek

 

Cotton clothes on, comfort’s a priority

Music plugged in, being hip a popularity

 

Liquid needs arise, water’s precious, rare

Save every drop, be spared of despair

 

Save some for the birds, animals too

Thirst spares none, hunger’s so true

 

Tempers fly high, temperatures too

Sweat it out, the sun gloats, shouts boo

 

Sip ice candies, tuck in icecreams

Kitchen cooking, oh a cook could scream

 

Active and lazy kids, bright and dumb kids

Its all about kids, and being quizzed

 

Cool climes invite, vacations for all

A leisurely summer break beckons all !

 

 

 

 

Every bit of me & you

 

Every scene, a soulful song

Every colour, an emotion witheld long

 

Every sound, lyrics written by you

Every mood, so silently true

 

Every blossom, a choicest creation

Every bit of earth, yearns a new sensation

 

Every season, a new identity

Every bit of life, a unique entity

 

Every creation, a blessing of the Almighty

Every destruction, elements speak mighty

 

Every word of mine, dedicated, true

Every silent expression, shows your loyalty too

 

 

💕💖💕

A friend remembers..

 

 

खुशनुमा गलियों में बजे एक धुन

आज भी यादें पुकारे यारा ज़रा सुन

 

अपनी यादें जैसे कोई पुरानी हवेली

खामोश, सिसकती जैसे कोई खास पहेली

 

किलकारियाँ दोस्ती की सुनाए हर दीवार

खिडकियों को कह दिया ले जा आर पार

 

खंडहरों मे गूँजे तेरी मीठी हंसी

हर ईंट हर पत्थर सुनाए अपनी बेबसी

 

याद है हर लफ्ज हर बात जो थी अपनी

उन्हे खुदसे अलग कर जान जली थी कितनी

 

याद है तेरा मन ही मन मुस्कुराना

न मिटा पाया वक्त तेरा दिलकश नज़राना

 

दोस्ती तेरी रहेगी सदा कुछ खास

तू कहीं आसपास है …. जिंदा है यह विशवास  ।।
