Uprooted, yet breathing!

Soft hands clutched my roots with affection,
A gentle touch cushioned me with tenderness,
Varied colours, fragrances engulfed my presence,
Battle pitch seemed tough, but I was up for it.

With each dawn came a sweet prayer of dew,
Cheerful blossoms spread sparks of envy,
Radiant spirits intimidated me,
Outstretched my neck, I aimed for greater heights.

Kind hearts graced me with gushing purity,
Countless withers and blooms were captured,
Sunshine patches made me a budding star,
For nature began to respect me.

Sun-kissed winds brought endless smiles,
Love-dipped water nurtured my soul,
Each day I saw life, each day I saw death,
Yet pride, honour and respect grew ten folds.

Life seemed blissful, till destiny played foul,
Mankind’s fury bloodied my world,
With grit I tried to hold my roots strong,
But defeat had its the last laugh.

Pain ripped through my heart as I laid motionless,
Wicked smiles morphed open clouds above,
Fragile, teary eyes sought bright light,
For blemished darkness left me uprooted.

My perplexed soul struggled to find a saviour,
With excruciating agony it fluttered its wings,
Though orphaned, its fight oozed incredible valour,
My eyes closed forever, yet I keep breathing.

Tale of two Singhs

His silence provoked a quiescent nation,
His army’s dark side remained exposed,
He stares at an early exit,
For India cannot ‘Singh’ along anymore.

His resurrection is keenly observed,
His attitude reinforced a million hopes,
He stares at a fortunate rebirth,
For India awaits to ‘Singh’ along endlessly.

His incompetence raised countless fingers,
His demeanor cuts a sorry figure,
He struggles to combat troubled waters,
For India cannot ‘Singh’ along anymore.

His extraordinary spirit accumulated plaudits,
His style and grace reflects a matured revival,
He seeks for renewed vigour,
For India awaits to ‘Singh’ along endlessly.

His leadership attracts sole mockery,
His muteness spells no less than tragedy,
He remains a voiceless puppet,
For India cannot ‘Singh’ along anymore.

His cancerous battle shocked one and all,
His recovery bagged heaps of applause,
He returns in colours of Blue,
For India awaits to ‘Singh’ along endlessly.

Silence engulfs her very presence,
Coyly she bows down at her feet,
Vibrant red henna adds to her blush,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

Dressed in her traditional attire,
A glimpse is all the crowd calls for,
Adorned with countless gold jewels,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

Music and laughter fills her ears,
Joyous voices brings a magical smile,
Her face glitters with euphoria,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

A glance at her folks brings a tear,
Past memories come gushing to her mind,
Yet she sports a gracious charm,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

With poise she sits before the holy fire,
Her groom shares a quick peek with her,
Their eyes speak in hushed tones,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

Celebrations fill her whole world,
She knows life would change from here on,
Yet she yearns for her mother’s touch,
She is the perfect Indian bride.

He soon leads her into his life
Mixed emotions grip her soul,
With hands held tight she fights a smile
She is the perfect Indian bride.

She searches her world in his eyes,
An affectionate smile from him eases her pain,
A silent prayer seals her big day,
She is after all the perfect Indian bride.

Your magical smile

Life was playing a mysterious game,
Clueless tangles left me baffled,
You walked into my dull world,
With that smile you sprung a miracle.

Eyes desperately searched for a vision,
Darkness grew in every nook and corner,
You showed me a virtual paradise,
With that smile you captured my dreams.

Lips offered countless prayers of hope,
Faith kept fading with dark times,
You spelt out a new meaning of joy,
With that smile you read a new chapter.

Soul was caught in a restless rush,
Excruciating pain gripped every heartbeat,
You untied  countless knots,
With that smile you rekindled immense hope.

Promise is all that I can adduce,
Happiness shall never leave your side,
You always deserve unconditional love.
For, with that smile you changed my life.

So close yet so far

Under starry skies I lay in solitude,
With blushing winds kissing my face,
Lost in the fragrance of nature’s love,
My soul gently whispers a divine name.

Countless miles persist to do us apart,
Yet nearness of your spirit sweeps me away,
Amidst the cold breeze of loneliness,
Your affectionate warmth grips every breath.

Awaiting to capture a blissful moment,
My eyes close in search of your gentle face,
A kind smile embraces my yearning presence,
Reflections of which absorb my pain away.

Loving thoughts tiptoes across my mind,
Your magical persona leaves me spellbound,
Sweetness of serenity fills my heart with gold,
Unparallel devotion assumes centre stage.

Tugged gracefully in my heart forever,
Your enigma brings shivers of enchantment,
Emotional lips make one soft prayer,
To forever blend our spirits with love.

 

He sees the world with a differnt eye,

His attention to details unusually imaginative,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

He holds his weapon with determination,

His zeal to capture it all remains inevitable,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

Several hues speak a language of their own,

Shades of black & white cloud his thoughts,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

Still waters exude deep emotions,

Starry skies takes him to another world,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

Sunrise & sunset instill a distinct calmness,

Nature’s gifts to mankind leaves him baffled,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

Facial expressions speak a thousand words,

Spectacular locations catches his eager eyes,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

Attempting to put life into different worlds,

He captures the universe in one blink,

All he observes is beyond the obvious,

As he seeks the perfect shot.

 

With delicate fingers he sets his final frame,

The shutter ticks, his armoury goes click,

A moment of truth arrives with a flash,

Alas! he captures the perfect shot.
