Mountain & Me

 

Chill air, breath vaporous

Backpack on, willpower adventurous

Whispers of wild invite

The child in me ready for the disastrous

 

Pumping heart, adrenaline rushes

Blood races through, an emotion gushes

Silence of mountains beckon

To merge into itself, in quiet hushes

 

Take in wild air, let your soul free

Feel your inner core, smile with glee

Nature knows how to resurrect you

It amazes everytime, just go and see

Seated by a window

Watching rainwater flow

My spirit’s aglow

Enthusiasm on overflow

 

A smile on my face

Reflects nature’s bounty

Forgetting bad days

Getting on to routine duty

 

The wind knows my secret

Whistling like an excited egret

Blowing rain helter skelter

Monsoon blows it’s trumphet !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Time by the sea

 

Salty air, blowing through hair

Wornout emotions, so much despair

Whispering words silent

Spend some time by the sea

 

Wet sands beckon, footprints talk

Each step’s history as you walk

Feel the rhythm of waves crash free

Spend some time by the sea

 

Smile away worries, feel the soul’s glee

Something eases in you, that’s for free

Witness waves soothing you gently

Spend some time by the sea

 

Share secrets with waves

Hear advice of nature’s roaring grace

You return with smiles you see

When you spend time by the sea

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dream visions

 

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

A mesmerising lullaby cures

In the moon’s velvet weaves

 

 

 

🌒🌘🌓🌘

 

 

 

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
