Wishes

Pic : Self

interesting conversations
with a drop of water
on a rainy day
led me to know
what it truly
wished for,

split into as many pieces
that nature allowed
each one to fall
in different
corners of
the world,

gather different perspectives
to enhance it’s own
limited reflections
before seeping into
the grounding
earth,

to rejoin the parts
and become
an enlightened
whole.

Lights

Pic: Self

Light a lamp
for your self
tonight,

let the night
also
celebrate you
tonight,

the day
you dedicated
to the miscellaneous
chores,

the one’s
that are thankless
inspite
of efforts endured,

Light a lamp
for yourself
tonight,

the stars
too need
an inspiration
to shine,

and I’ll see
your reflections
in a thousand
mirrors,

scattered
across
this soulful
night.

Fragile

Pic: Self

the fragility
of being human,
tested often
by its own kind,

physical
or mental,
or the animalistic
incursions,

each egged by
a soulless ego,
wanting to stamp
a never given right,

but rise
from the shadows
will the will
to survive,

the weak
beats the same,
as the weak
in the seeming strong,

but when
the broken rises,
breaking
it’s torturous calm,

it’s strength
is a bolt of lightening,
it’s heart
an armoured storm,

it strikes beyond
the boundaries,
of normal imagined
expectations,

with a fire
which knowingly burns,
that which had
no qualms.

Musings – Often…

Pic: Self ‘Cloudy Skies’

We travel through life, searching for so many things, some we find some we don’t,

some we get to keep, till the journey is done, some with or without a choice, we do let go,

the journey continues, for life is seldom dependent, on whether one is happy or sad,

We often measure our own state of sadness by the smiling faces we see around,

we often only count our blessings, when see another’s eyes drip their greater pain,

we seldom care to know beyond our own, but the world was created unbiasedly the same,

Timings may differ for individual seasons, and so may their smile and the expression of pain,

but be sure that each one, that you see in contrast and contradiction, to your own state,

has had their smiles, and plenty tears too, so don’t judge them ever from your present place.

h i d d e n

Pic : Self

i am
more than
the me
you see,

but paints
i splashed
over
words written,

visuals
to distract
ignorant eyes
from the essence,

truth hidden
on a painter’s canvas
waiting
to be deciphered,

colours
naturally attract
the passing
eye,

the visible surface
seen by all
but beneath
the layers,

read by none.

i n t r o s p e c t i o n

i could have
lied to myself,
as this world often
conditions us
to do,

i could have saved the ego
from the risk,
and let intentions
remain weak,
lost in the dark,

to someday breathe
an air of regrets,
where you would have
asked me a why,
or maybe a why not,

so i chose to stretch
this temporary neck,
beyond
the strength
of the bones it holds,

pretence was never
my strength to show,
where the flow
of energy
is a stranger known,

i like to have
my feet in the sand,
irrespective
of the waves
rocking me to and fro,

its the sinking to a point
that i love,
and the confidence
that beyond it
me, it will hold,

i dont look for answers
that my eyes can’t feel,
for some said words lie,
beyond the logics
of this visual time,

yet there exists
that
which holds value,
in the here and now
as well as in the beyond,

you and i
are a tiny bit
in this
continuous
evolving realm,

you everyday
seem to grow,
into the sea
and sands
that so well i know,

so i let myself go,
knowing
to sink is easy,
and not everyone knows
how to hold,

for eyes here
often seek more,
than what they know
they can meaningfully
hold.
