Interlude

this season’s interlude
of freezing morning spell
awaiting the emerging sun
to paint the sky with colors

the dawn deserves a twilight
chasing a familiar night
waiting to spend a sunny morning
where cold hearts will be warmed

feathered clouds in colored haze
teased the moment with uncertainty
an hour of a pleasant sky hides
sad tears of a bereaved comedy …









Pile of Lies

i heard the breeze outside
coming in
as i laid down my body
on a silver screen


drowsiness and fatigue
i was beaten
white smoke embraced me
all of a sudden


drifting dusts of realities
of the olden years
appeared as i succumbed
to a seabed of fantasies


scenes kept on changing
by the minute
softness of the colors darkened
without limit


astounded me as memories
ran the mile
yesterday’s truth was dumped
on the pile of lies



as the dawning light
of the joyous peeping sun
i was awakened by the truth
of how the dream begun…






Straws of the Wind…

i feel the earth moved deep in my heart
so heavy it breaks me apart
i want to rest and find relief
clean-up my way and rectify false belief

to carry the heaviest of weight
my mind will fight, my thoughts could defeat
and once the stiffest trials get light
i can carry the burden with utmost pride

strong honeyed calls of temptation to sin
could defy man’s resistance to give-in
prayers in mind will thwart the roaring tempest wind
could resist the strongest perfumed baits of sins

so stand up and carry the fight
against the darkness that rules the mystery of the night
evils will be brought to a bright daylight
to surrender the power of their might

now i can breath with total sweetness
from the bitter taste of the ruinous kisses
with the Lord, my heart will no longer be pinned
to carry the world even the toughest straws of the wind…
