Redemption

Standard

kaushal007-2225150

They tell me your moon is too far

then why are you craving for him

his gleam his glitter is not for you

your share is just one ray so dim

 

 

They say you have fallen for a stone

whom no love no feeling can move

but still the love of this one stone

over thousands of roses I chose

 

 

They say that in the end

I will get nothing but pain

But loves sees no reason no logic

It never sees losses or gain

 

 

He is not yours he never was

some say scoffing with a grin

Come my saviour and ‘redeem’ me

they say loving you is a ‘sin’

The Winter Rain

Standard

111051597_91f2b44b22_z

Its that time of the year again

That chill that calm the winter rain

I stand at the window ,

sipping coffee steaming hot

Seeing clouds play cupid,

giving wings to my thoughts

 

 

I so love the Rains

for the nostalgia they evoke

A warm blanket, cold nights

that fireplace and smoke

Come alive in the mind

as if the slumber just broke

I see those lil boots

that I now did outgrow

How we ran around in those

Wet and  drenched head to toe

Feels  like it was just yesterday

and not ages ago

 

 

Same coffee same rain

but the times were insane

We’d run , slip and jump

on that bumpy terrain

How we enlivened with laughter

Each street and every lane

 

 

Lost in my thoughts I see a  lil kid,  who brings me back to “today’

Cold and hungry  sad and homeless

He is rebuked and shooed away

He is running too he is running fast

but not for fun not to play

he is running  to find a shelter

From harsh cold and rain

I see him fighting with hunger

I see him fighting with pain

 

 

Rain for him  is not a time

To play ,to jump and run

He has to earn his loaf of bread

Fight his battle and get things done

 

 

But  life  failed to dim his smile

and the glint from his sparkling eyes

I wish some day life smiles at him

And answer all his “whys”

 

 

His eyes met mine

and we shared a smile

So bright, so pure,,

I loved the warmth of his smile

 

 

I smiled back too

but a guilt crossed my mind

Is there nothing I can do

I wondered I whined

Then voice says to me

There are millions in his clan

Its God who plans our fate

It’s  just a part of His plan

 

 

I sit down and take a sip from the cup

Back to the coffee back to my world

 

 

But that’s life and its true

That in just a day or two

I’ll Forgot the kid forget his world

Isn’t it what we so often DO?

And wonder  I ponder at questions few..

How do I define people how do I define me n you

are we heart less or just helpless  … ?

or May be both I confess.

 

 

Then my thoughts take me afar

To that land across the sea

the seashore sun n sand

That was the place to be

 

 

An early winter  evening

of twenty eleven(2011)

Our abode for a week

the place was heaven

 

 

The dawn of a new life

And  a life time of glee

Same rain same winters

and those clouds floating free

The  hearts humming a soulful note

mesmerizing as the sea

reminiscing events of  past

all the moments of years four

A time full of warmth

full of magic n amore

talking of all what was

and of what will be

Here we talk of our tomorrows

Near the  window , you and me

 

 

The rain captured and treasured

all  the moments  in its heart

That place that time and us

we will never be apart

And years down the line

we’ll cherish this start

 

 

A small world is weaved in this box by now

 

Some thoughts some  dreams

and some journeys our own

A few poems from that evening

some faces unknown

A blue scarf of silk

so carelessly thrown

On the couch besides the window

Where all my thoughts have grown

That  red coffee mug

`inscribed with the word “cheers”

That saw me growing strong

Through smiles and tears

Through confusions and worries

of my growing years

Some questions unanswered

some moments  so dear.

 

 

Today right here at  this moment

. I  add some more to the vault .

some fights a few giggles,

and a laughter so bright.

some whispers of the soul

and the promises few

That chit-chat , long walks

some tiffs and frowns too

 

They’ll  come with the  next rain

to delight to enchant

when the raindrops  touch the earth

and capture  my heart

I so long to feel  the spell

and the magic yet again…

And see the treasures come alive

in next winter rain.

Castles of dreams

Standard

3-children-running-field-lgn

That truly precious time,
carefree days of childhood
I so wish to re-live
if I ever could

Till day in my memories
I carry a vivid list
of all those lil temptations,
I never could resist.

Those cookies, that box of chocolates,
that candy-floss and dolls
which I hated to share
even with best of my pals.

Gazing at the stars and trying to find
the brightest of them all
then announcing “That’s mine”

Staring at the sky
and waiting to see
the fairies who lived there
on the moon above the sea

Often wonder and think
Do they really live there,
could it really be?
Yes, coz grandma told me
so true it has to be

How do they look like?
Just like you n me?
Will I ever get to see them
O grandma tell me ..

Waiting for Santa and his sleigh
on those cold Christmas days
Will he bring all those gifts
as everyone says?

What will I get this Christmas
One new doll? new dress?
Santa knows what I want
He’ll bring both I guess.

Wishing on the rainbows
Wishing on the shooting star
Feeling such a deep bond
with those strange things so afar

Scribbling words and smily faces
on a huge steamy glass
erasing thoughts and paint again
on that canvas of glass

Weaving stories and dreams
around castles of sand
The calm sea stands a witness
to those times so grand

In a rainy day of may
running off to the orchards to play
shaking the branches of apples and pine
and feeling those lil drops falling
on your face and mine
like a shower of His love
like a blessing divine

Time keeps on moving
nothing’s forever, nothing lasts
like those words on the glass
in a moment its past.

But the memories remain
in mind so close so clear
Those moments live and blossom
in my smiles and tears
to cherish in times to come
to cherish in my mellower years…

Life etc.

Some rhymes and verses

Some thoughts gone astray ,

Some travels some journeys

And meeting life on the way,

Some stories  from the past

Some trips down the lane ,

Some moments of bliss

Some feelings insane,

Waltzing through the roads

on a journey called Life

The Unborn Daughter

Standard

Image

Lord sent me on a journey

A journey to this earth,

With eyes lit with dreams

With hopes n mirth

I set out for my journey

The journey of my birth

There I was,

With that gentle soul

Whom I called my mother whom I called my own

My only bond with the world outside

My mother,my strength,my world,my pride

I saw her smile

That smile was for me

Welcoming me to her world

With joy,love and glee

I was growing inside her

So happy so proud

Shielded from all evil

sheltered from dark clouds

But for how long..till when

god will bless this little wren

I had to be punished

Right there and then

My crime – I was a girl

Unwelcomed,unwanted uncalled for, little girl

In a moment I am worshipped

Through night dusk n dawn

In a moment m a goddess

Next slaughtered n gone

I smiled at the ways

The ways of the world

My last smile last chuckle

Went unseen unheard

You too mom? I murmured……..

She went deaf

Paid no heed

Let me live mom,don’t kill me

I fearfully did plead

 I know with her body that day

Her soul too did bleed

I wondered with pain

But I ll never complain

What shud I ask her

What will she explain

She too was a woman,so frail so forlorn

At the mercy of the same world

That kills me unborn

She was helpless,she was weak

Couldnt hear me,couldn’t speak

She could nvr hear my laughter

She will never hear my shriek

Her little daughter her angel

She tried but failed to save

The same womb that nurtured me

Was turned into my grave

I bid adieu to dear world that

I so longed to see

The world so heartless

This world dint need me

No tears were shed for me

Perhaps joy was in the air

Was this all I deserved

Is it just is it fair?

A silent tear rolled out from the eyes of that soul

Whom I called my mother whom I called my own

That tear that emotion

Was my last farewell

A silent homage to the pearl

From its crumbling shell

God wanted me to live mom

Y dint the world let me

i wanted to spread my wings

I wanted to fly free

I would have shared my sorrows

N joys with you mother

But you too despised me

As m not special like my brother

He is a boy he owns the world

And the same world disowns me

I ll never see the sunshine now

I ll never see the moon

I ll never know what colors are

Whats night whats morning n noon

A curse that I was

That died in its cocoon

This was the end of my journey

The journey to death

Before I could learn to breathe

They killed me stopped my breath

I am not that girl

whom the mankind deify

Not a daughter,not a soul

Just a burden was I

With wings of my dreams

All broken n shorn

I am sent back to HIM

Dejected…UNBORN..

 

A Wish

Standard

Image

I wish I were a flower, a bright crimson rose

kindling the flame of love,in hearts of all those

who lived,who breathed,who cherished

the blissful dream of love

I’d give wings to their hopes

like a blessing from above

someone would hold me

close to his heart

and sigh at my beauty

my color so bright

someone would feel proud

to see me bloom in his yard

n boast of his toil

that fetched him this reward

someone would keep me in the pages of books

n forever I’ ll be locked in his heart

I’d bring back the memories

of the love in his prime

that lost somewhere

in the sands of time

someone holding me in his hand

would kneel down and woo

his dame,n I ll vouch for

his deep love so true

I’d be laid at the “abode” of

the dear ones now gone

In the skies of our lives

who once glittered and shone

I’d speak of their love

I’d speak of the pain

of those left to tread the tough path

of life all alone

Their soul mate would be I

in those moments few

hiding my tears

guising them as dew

someday I’d be offered

at “His” feet with a prayer

to ask for His blessings

His love and His care

Sharing sorrows and joys

one day i ll be gone

But i ll never be sad

I ll never bemoan

nor sigh at the tresses

that I once did adorn

for I ll still be a rose

I’ll still mean love,

I ‘ll live in your hearts

though withered or dry

‘tween the pages of memories

forever I’d lie….
