The Illusory Loom

Why does the obstinate heart fail to understand? That there is no magic ticket to any promised land On barren patches of soil, roses never bloom Fabrics of fascinating dreams become the mere products of an illusory loom   Patterns of complex emotions as they abruptly manifest Alternating between uncontrolled angst and infinite jest Knowingly …

DROWNING CRUCIBLE OF HUMANITY

A rudderless boat caught in a gale storm with no shore in sight Leaving the boatman to rant and rue over his dire plight Trying to flee misfortune only to land in calamity’s hands The soul desperately struggles to hold onto faith’s last strands.   Every gleam of light is but a laughing mirage of …

SPARK TO IGNITE A FLAME

Tracing the tendrils of cigarette smoke wafting up into thin air An overwhelming loss scythed through him as he stared into the harsh sun’s glare While the dead stay alive in eternal sleep, the living are but the disguised dead The most powerful and profound words are those that remain unsaid There wasn’t no time …

The Journey Through A Book

How indescribable is the pleasure that one derives from reading a book, For a truly passionate one touches the heart’s every cranny and nook; Paroxysms of emotions compete with one another, as the reader sails the pages, As characters waft through at a frenetic pace, some of whom he adores, while some he disparages.   …

THE LITTLE GIRL WITH HER HAND IN A SLING

With a smile radiant like a brilliant sunshine and a face astonishingly divine, Twin pearls for eyes, so mischievous and sparkling with life as they shyly look into mine; Perched on a bicycle, with a little ball clutched in a raised fist and ready for a mighty fling, That was the first sight I had …

THE STORY OF INDIA UNBOUND

A sacred land inhabited by a staggering billion who live in peace and harmony, Though this fabric of brotherhood is at times tainted by blood and gore of communal acrimony; A place where blazing temple lights, lilting hymns from mosques and toll of church bells heralds the beginning of every day; This enviable unity amidst …
