Diwali fever

Here comes Diwali again

Bringing festivities and fun as a gain

Witness the cheer and joy around

With crackers making familiar sounds

Colourful rangolis adorn the doorsteps

Assuring in goodness and divine footsteps

Little diyas bring in the holy light

Ensuring everything is nice and bright

Sweets and new things bring on smiles

Families come together despite miles

Good wishes from wellwishers pour in too

When they say Happy Diwali to u too !

The beautiful Moon

Writing about you is such a pleasure

Coz you are nature’s blessed treasure

A glimpse of you makes hearts go wild

And indulge in things like a little child

You look like a distant ball of mystery

With some ancient kind of history

Each time you comes into focus in the sky

My pen never ever leaves the paper dry

Words may fail but not you

Even in distance I have a friend in you !!

An Awesome sunset!

 

Looking like an orange you are

Or a dot of vermilion smeared so far

You appear so beautifully sublime

Never ageing despite passing time

Sunsets are discussed just around you

You put life in whatever you do

As you say goodbye for the day

Time too changes its moods as you say

Never seen you as captivating as this

Seeing you setting down is sheer bliss!!

Yellow calling …

To run or walk on such a road

No train or bus to board

Just an endless canopy of yellow

Making the mood happy and mellow

The soul becomes relaxed and quiet

With a smile so radiant and bright

A song playing gently in your mind

Oh such peace where will you find

Away from the worldly rush & possessions

In nature you find your mind and soul’s discussions !

 

Mumbai weather

 

Rain rain and more rain the whole day

Muggy weather’s here again to stay

 

Dawn daily brings in dull grey skies

For now the sun has said its goodbyes

 

Clouds of all shapes float away merrily

Ensuring dampness stays on steadily

 

A funny mist envelopes the air around

And dampness clings fast to the ground

 

Allergies of all kinds rule the day

And mosquitos have their own pricky say

 

Washed clothes wait for their turn to dry

And half dried ones are still damp O why !

 

Moving around the city becomes a pain

Stuck in traffic u do wonder whats to gain

 

Everyone is at their irritable best

Like nature’s herself taking everyone’s test

 

Wonder these days where did we go wrong

Life was never easy but we did have a song

 

Now its man versus nature

As she’s giving back in a way that’s her signature !

 

Wonder when we will learn though

To put an end to our endless egoistic show

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Tiger..

Fear is your second name

Though you don’t feel the same

You speak with threat in your eyes

Like I have been warned thrice

Stealth is your trademark walk

Quiet and dignified like royal talk

You never cease to amaze

Losing you would be a disgrace

An amazing creation of the Lord you are

Nature makes you look like a star

Can’t imagine the earth without you

Coz you are nature and nature is you !

Blessed nature

Peace reigns where you rule

Whispering to you sounds so cool

You really are a fantasy to a city

Where even small landscapes are a pity

What is it about you that relaxes me

Your silence or just you and me

Each time I come to you for calm

You mentor me like you are my balm

Watching you grow is such a pleasure

You really are the Lord’s blessed treasure !
