In Praise Of The Moon



Round and round you go on your voyage,
From stormy deserts to icy maze,
Shining your silvery facade.

Many beauties wait for the night,
For they bloom under your sight,
Primrose, Gladiolus, Lilies, Moon flower,
Crave for a glimpse of your light shower,
You are the dream of every dreamer,
Spinning dreams down the river.

Every night forests resound,
With thy lover’s featly sound,
As you drench the realm in white light,
Songs are heard from fairies and sprites,
Cold comfort of your embrace,
A soft breeze on earth’s face.

To your enchanting call, waves rise,
Splashing treasures that oceans hide.
Dancing to your tune on those nights,
Waves reach to great heights.
You are magician of the night sky,
Perched atop on mountain so high.

Round and round you go on your voyage,
From stormy deserts to icy maze,
Shining your silvery facade.

The Colour of Nature: Sonnet


Its the colour of nature,
the ever shimmering green,
an absolute stunning feature,
standing out like queen.

Oh! when the dew drops drip,
upon the grassy leaves,
kissing their emerald-lips,
many dreams, nature weaves.

But, the grass is never green,
for he has a heart dark and mean,
the green eyed monster,
that resides in shady corners.

He rides on envy’s roller coaster,
and always remains the loner.

"Green" is my favourite colour.

Where To?


To our dreamland,
we go,
with our emotions in tow,
we smile, we frown,
sometimes move up and down.

We dream of,
lovely flowers,
and of starry shower.

Will all this be there?
in our dreamland
from somewhere……………………………..

This Heart of Mine




As the waves rise to touch the moon,
this heart of mine yearns for you,
 you are the cloud of the sky blue,
and my heart, a parched land of torrid June.

Like waves, I wish to feel your cool touch,
how it is to be the lover of a love, lost,
to thaw your emotions that are buried under frost,
this heart of mine asks for this and not much.

You are the brightest star of my poetic sky,
shining and smiling from afar,
mesmerising me with your charm.

With you I wish to fly,
to your world my star,
where our love will spread its warmth.

Your Soul


I shall never be able to write,
words of gold, in,
a poem lovely as your soul.

A soul that shines bright,
under the god’s light.

A soul that guides my life,
and I ‘ll wait for you in the afterlife.

What shall I say more?
there’s no one as pure as your soul.

God Is Everywhere

AUM
He shines in the morning dew,
resides in the scenic views.

He whispers among the flowers,
he is the dream, in dream- jars.

He drips through the rain,
slides down our cheeks, as tears of pain.

God is unseen,
but, we can feel him,
with a heart full of sympathy
and a life full of empathy.

God is “AUM”,
the essence of the universe.

Aum () embodies the essence of the entire universe and is the most sacred symbol in Hinduisim. It is the root of the universe and everything that exists.

An Existence Gone Vain


Waiting,
from dawn to dusk,
every petal withered,
inked with stories,
of  pain,
of being forgotten,
of an existence gone vain.
