Raksha Bandhan

WHY DO WE NEED A DAY TO CELEBRATE RAKSHA BANDHAN?

Why do we need a day,
To celebrate a bond so special,
A bond created,
When we were born,.
Even though we live afar.

Over the years,
We have grown,
To think apart,
Raising, and being raised,
By families of our own.

As busy as our lives get,
We remain,
Loyal and loving,
Calling, chatting and caring,
But not every day.

But, there is one day,
Dedicated to us,
In the year,
The day is called,
Raksha Bandhan.

It represents,
The bond of protection,
Which comes to remind us,
“Pray to protect the privilege”
With all our might.,

This is a bond,
My brother,
With your sister,
To be cherished,
Forevermore,

Now is the time to remember,
And to embrace,
The bond that began
When we were born!
Happy #RakshaBandhan!

 

Time, Run, Stay

What’s the Hurry, My Time?

The minutes on my watch,

Don’t fly so fast,

Let my moment

Be a little long.

My past is

Long gone,

Captured in

Words

Images

Moments

Some frozen by you

Some forgotten by me

Yet they remain

Living memories

In the depth of my head.

Even today

In the present

A flash of you

I try to grab

In the lines

Of brows and lips

Of family loved

Friendly winks.

Why do you need

To do a sprinter

All I want

Is a moment or two

To savor a second

For as long

As a minute.

I don’t dread

The future

I await it happily,

But, today,

All I ask,

Why are you like a kite

Cut from its strings

Rushing into

Unknown hands.

Do wait,

Tell me

How come you’re so quick

Where do you run

Why do you run

Can’t you wait.

Let the happy moments

Stay

Forever

Without a thought

Of How restless

Fleeting

You can be!

Smile, My Heart

My Smile, My Heart!

Why are you so distant
My smile, my heart
Living in a cloud
Of fear,
Of dread
Of things awry.
Come hither,
Touch me,
Speak to me all you want,
Of hopes,
Of dreams,
Of laughter.
Don’t let the despairing winds,
Carry you away,
You are strong,
Of thought,
Of ideas,
Of Love.
Ignore the foolish ways
That the society,
Wants to heap on you
Of stature
Of place
Of ambition
You are mine
To use as I please
So come hither, my heart,
Come take the place
I have reserved for you,
And you alone,
In the throes
Of lips,
Of mind
Of soul.

Office Rows

Row upon row of people,

Typing, clicking, working,.

Some looking up to

Think a word,

Others looking down,

To complete a task,

One sighing,

The other crying,

Not audible,

Yet visible,

To the mirror,

Sitting next

Or across.

Life has the right fit

The Right Fit Awaits

There comes a time in life,

When nothing seems to pass,

It is the time my friend,

To don on some class.

Life does not wait,

It moves at its speed,

Slow, steady or swift

Leaving you adrift

 

Poison your words not,

Nor become a dour fool,

Contemplate all you want,

But, love is your best tool.

Love is but a struggle,

To let you what to do,

Slow, steady or swift,

Just enjoy the gift!

 

Happy smiles seem distant,

When the heart is sad,

Anger, Envy or Ire,

Just add to the dire,

Joy is what you need,

Right there for you to seek,

Slow, steady or swift,

Ready to give you a lift.

 

Change is very scary,

But, a monster it is not,

It’s very hard to muster,

Despite the initial fluster,

A new dawn awaits,

Awaken your dreams,

Slow, steady or swift,

Go find the right fit!

I Move Across the Sky

A new day greets,
“Happy with you my peeps,”
“Come,” says the sun,
“See me rise in the sky,
As the darkness fades,
I continue to shine,
Till I am so bright,
I begin to hurt your eye,
Now I’m tired
From the climbing and
The shining,
I need to descend,
In another horizon
Where sleep is breaking,
Souls are awaiting my rise,
Minds are ready to break,
Monotony of life.
But don’t you worry
As I fade,
I leave you with twinkles,
Millions of them,
You won’t need your blinker,
Oh, before I forget,
There’s the big one.
That’s a bit blemished,
Not really a star,
Not even a planet
It changes everyday,
Crescent, half and full,
With a touch of red,
Calling to the lovers,
To yearn, love and weep,
In the dead of the night,
Like me it keeps moving,
Up and down the sky,
But as your eyes,
stop seeing,
the white wonder,
Your heart begins to beat,
A hard thud for all to hear,
Oh, yeah,
Close your eyes,
Let sleep take you,
Away to lands,
Unseen and unknown,
For if your awake now,
Don’t you fret,,
The dark is here,
For just a short time,
I am here to rise again
In all my orange glory,
Telling you, once more
Wake up,
Look at me, peeps
A new day I bring,
Enjoy it fully,
Greet it with love,
For in time’s journey
Across the Sky,
In the blink of an eye,
I will be gone once more.”
