Mother Nature

Mother nature’s glory
And her simple stories,
My granny used to tell,
Beside the village well.

She would lead us to the mountains,
High above the sky, freely flowing fountains.
Among the clouds we would fly unscathed,
Our imaginations like fledglings newly hatched.
But, gone are those days of carefree stories,
Nature’s heart soaked in worries.
Man’s relentless exploitation,
Consume nature without hesitation.

Nature bleeds red with rust,
Her crown decorated with dust.
Oh! hear the plea, every nation,
Restore mother nature,
and save every future generation.

One Day

One day,
we’ll write our love story.
The world will know then,
what it is to love,
and be loved.

Our worlds are apart,
we are  far, yet always near.
A love meant to be,
felt through words, emotions
and tears.

Our love story,
expands through the universe,
from past life,
to present,
and to the future.

One day,
we’ll write our love story.

January Song

Only a heart filled with love,

can hear the January song.

A message from above,

breaks the wait of love.

Riding on the snow flakes,

a journey to earth it makes.

Spreading through mistral waves,

in many hearts this song awakes.

Winter’s charm,

full of warmth,

for love fills,

winter’s chilly air.

Tell me oh! dear,

can you not hear,

the January song,

before it’s long gone.

across the universe
in holy bond

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.

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.
