Random

Pic : Self

The randomness
of thoughts,
sometimes subsides
to give way
to coherent dreams,

till the dreams too
lead to a randomness
of sorts,
and I am inclined
to lean back again,

in an attempt
to find some coherency
and meaning,
in the remaining shreds
of earlier thoughts.

Tangled

Pic : Self

Accumulated results
of past actions,

sometimes resemble
a tangled mess,

i ponder on untangling
with patience,

or using a scissor
to quicken the process,

one needs
the luxury of time,

and the other entails
losing some threads.

Musings : Paheli/Paradox

Pic : Self

koi dhoondta hai
pyaar,
aur agar usse
mil jaaye,
toh phir usme
wafaa,

koi leke chalta hai
hatheli pe
sajaaye wafaa,
ke koi usse
pyaar
de toh de.

Translation in English:

there are those
who search for love,
and if they find it
they hope
it is strong enough
to hold
their trust,

and there are those,
who know
the sanctity
of that trust,
and wait for a love
to test it
to the hilt.
