Rainbow

In a deluge of rain, I often get washed away

Flowing along the waters

To unknown destinations of its own predilection

Rubbing and bruising my skin against the boulders

Wounding my confidence

Paralyzing my thoughts

Decapitating my demeanor

To only flow and flow

Like a paper boat

The ultimate fate of which is to let the water gush in

I immerse in the destiny’s fiasco

Allowing to swallow my existence

What If, not fall and drift with the rain

Not surrender to bruises and pains

Instead, be a ray of sunlight

Courageous to enter the dense droplet

To fight, not bow but bend

To reflect my treasures

Believe in my abilities

Have faith in The “Only One”

And disperse to come out

Splitting a wide spectrum

Of shades of fortitude

Into a VIBGYOR

To shine across the sky

Vibrantly, coherently

Evincing the world

The Rainbow me.

Daddy

Twenty years have gone by

Myriads of moments to sigh

Sea of emotions and multitudes of smiles

Oh I have come a thousand miles

This world I tell you is a dark space

Did you ever realise this was really the case

Pigeons turned into eagles I saw

Arduous s it was to unclench the destiny’s claw

A stubborn child I used to be Daddy

Look, now I have become a patient lady

I always hovered around you like a bee

My moppet now does the same, do you ever see

I will get old with no teeth, you teased

I will laugh and you won’t be pleased

You will never become old, I always reverted

Your words often breathes life never to be averted

How would I survive giving her off, you always lamented

I would never marry just be with you, I quoted

Allah fulfilled your wish not mine

Why, oh why this, when there were many others unfulfilled that time

My life proceeds but my thoughts still rewind

Of the sunshine days when our presence intertwined

How I wish you would be here Daddy, to witness how much the world changed

How I wish you would hear, my heart still beats in the tone of your memoirs caged.

Departure

… And the time comes when you have to depart

Scintillating chords pervades your heart

Pain drills in like a piercing dart

To bottle up your Effervescent tears is truly an art

Hues of yesteryears comes alive

How ecstatically we all used to thrive

Not foreknown about ensuing lives

Living in that very moment used to be our drive

How life leaves us into a labyrinth, I wonder

Priorities change and our yearnings surrender

Into the alleys, in a cavern and we wander

But every second, life does smoulder

Time elapses, so does our age

But those fire flies remain encased in our rib cage

Effulgence of togetherness often flares from those cherished pages

As we perpetually stow away in our life’s carriage.

Elixir of my Heart

#poem #mother

Your always smiling face

Is such full of grace

Your fine wrinkles, which have started to appear

They are the telltales of what all you have had to bear

Your better half closed his eyes forever

The most dreadful nightmare you could think of ever

How you got that courage to bring him from miles apart

Just so others can see him off you did your part

I always gather enough strength to ask how you did this

But may be, with him being here, is your actual bliss

You strongly stood like a tall tree

And fulfilled our wishes for free

Two decades gone,

You are living it all alone

Be it us with you or your kith and kin

This incessant void must have hurt you like a piercing pin

Two of us from your nest are away in distant land

How I wish to fly to you with the magic of a wand

Your existence is the soul of our lives

For us to be buoyant, you are the biggest drive

You are the Sun of our little universe

In your brightness and shine, we immerse

Wake up to see your ever smiling face

Which is such full of grace

Sure at dusk, you do set

But with illumination and hope you again arise

And under your feet is our paradise.

P. S.

Thought to post this on mother’s day but to tell you, am going on a vacation (back home to India) for a month, so would be taking a break from WordPress, so sharing the poem today in advance.

Will miss you all so much especially some of you very much to be honest, just hope to return back safe and meeting you all again.

May God keep all of you safe, healthy and happy. Take care, Bye until we meet again.

Seasons of Change

#poetry

I hear that song that we sang all summer long

We sweltered but got so very well along

That flavorful creamy ice

And oh that joyous joy ride

Just an axial tilt of the earth and my summer transformed

The beautiful green leaves started to turn brown

When you considered yourself wearing that invisible crown

Those solemn promises to live by

And oh those pearls of laughter from deep inside

Just a drip in temperature and autumn stopped by

We lived our summers but tripped our fall

And tough it is to smile through the winters squall

That pure white snow covered all over

And oh those tea and fritters that we used to wolf down

Just went aloof when the sun hid under the moon

Melodies of robins and the return of monarch butterflies

How they smell the cut grass and come to claim their prize

That elliptical drift

And oh now that drastic shift

I just remember that song that we sang all summer long.

If I Could…..

#poetry #repost

If I could, I would be a nightingale

Sitting on the boughs and singing my tales

And everyone loving my voice

Even though the fables being of my choice

I would freely soar high without any end

And thus setting up my own new trend.

If I could, I would time travel

Rectifying my past mistakes beyond my level

Reliving twice the most happy moments

Not caring much then, I now lament

Doing what I didn’t at that time

And setting up subtly my new paradigm.

If I could, I would be a phoenix

Even if I fall after a jinx

I would again rise and arise

Much stronger than my previous size

Not just I will sit back and regret

And falsely assume that I can never move ahead playing my already run out cassette

If I could, I would become invisible

And thus becoming highly invincible

I would go business class around the world for free

How much will I love not to pay and be on a shopping spree

I would help the poor and needy with loads of gifts

And watch their elated faces without getting sniffed.

If I could, I should be my own

Not being a nightingale, a phoenix or time travel or be invisible but hone

But the qualities and capabilities they symbolize, we should retain

And reflect it to others and entertain

Don’t go the easy way pretending someone you are not, so be a little wise

Thus carving in this world your own niche, your own little happy paradise.

HOW I WISH…..

#poetry #reminiscence #repost

How I wish…

Oh how I wish to turn back my life’s pages

And be a child

Sitting in my mother’s arm

Feeling every bit of coziness and calm

To do big blunders and go off easily

To cry as much and not be judged

Oh how I wish..

To fall off a dozen time

But always be on cloud nine

To eat like a horse

And not caring of course

To have that cute laughing Buddha belly

And still be called a strawberry jelly

Oh how I wish..

To hold my father’s hand

And go with him buying chocolates

To be yelled upon

But not giving it a damn

To not caring about penny

And be an albatross around the neck of your nanny

Oh how I wish..

To quarrel with my brothers

And get them scolded by my father

To befool my sister

And then be as cool as a cucumber

To read fairy tales

And feel like a princess

To play with Barbie all the time

Even if it was time to dine

Oh how I wish,

How I wish to turn back my life’s pages..

And roll down the memory lane

Be a small little unruly insane

Oh how I wish

To get to live yesterday once more.

When I Am Gone

#poetry

….. And the wind will blow

Sky shall bear iridescent glow

The birds will croon

The trees will sway

But I would drift away

Not sustaining the brunt of fate

Like a candle in the wind

Like a tender plant in heavy rains

I would embrace the darkness and detach from the soil

Blinded, blended and to be earthed leaving this turmoil

Sympathies, agonies, sorrow will pour in

Eyes would bear tears of farewell

Words will flow like melodies exalting me

Will I be there to hear your notions

I would be sleeping unaware of your emotions

Remember me with every breeze that will touch your face

Forgive me for every ruffle I may have caused

Pardon me for every little scribbles I may have on your wall

Never let me go lost in your archives

For may be there, I can eternally survive

Hope

# poetry

Even in the darkest hour

With no light, strength and power

I do hope for the best

For life is nothing but a test

I just sit and wait down

For the brightest light in the town

To make its way through the dark

To enlighten me with a spark

When people drifts away

Leaving me marooned to find my own way

I take a deep breath

Fanning away my wrath

And walk miles alone

Though not becoming a rolling stone

I take a leap of faith

To open every closed gate

When life becomes shrewd and shatter me into pieces

Contravening my expectations yet it also teaches

How to mend and glue my fragments

How to re-color each and every segment

And augment myself to never break again

No matter how much I have to endure pain

I search for possibilities infinite

To brush me up and ignite

To see hope in every little element, I should succour

Just flow with the symphony of tides to sustain and await a magic to occur

For this is the only way to keep yourself alive

To spring back from affliction and thrive.
