Hour, year, Authornama

Ring in another year!

Another hour gone!
Where did it go?
When did it become a year,
Or for that matter,
Several years,
Where do I look for you?
Oh! The hour gone-by!
Are you a fleeting moment,
In the depth of my heart,
In the spindles,
of my sleep!
In the recess
of my mind!
Or are you lurking?
The hour gone-by
Somewhere around,
Behind the eyes,
In the ears,
Waiting, laughing
Teasing, crying?
Wanting a release,
From the time!
No longer happy
To be an hour,
Running to be a memoir
Of the sun’s ray
Or the moon’s shine
Or the broad smile
That welcomes 2020!

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.”

Be Brave, Be Bold

Be brave, be bold,
The words were heard often,
When we played with abandon,
And studied with dread,

Be brave, be bold,
The words became the mantra,
As self-consciousness set in,
And peers became the judges.

Be brave, be bold,
The words were softly whispered,
When we lay howling on the bed,
And a loved one held on tight.

Be brave, be bold
The words were always emphasized,
As we shared reports and thoughts,
And colleagues egged us to success.

Be brave, be bold,
The words were never truer,
As we looked at the doctor in the room,
And a baby lay still in his arms.

Be brave, be bold,
The words are now our life,
As we move forward without aim,
And, the horizons call us for an embrace!

2018 -शूभकामना

बीसवीं सदी का अट्ठारवा साल,
उसी बेसर्बी से इंतज़ार था,
इस बेसब्री को इस बार,
दे देना अपना एक ऐसा ख्वाब,
जो दिल के किसी कोने में है दबा,
बेसब्र होकर वह उभर आये,
आप को दे वह एक ऐसी अगन,
खून के हर कतरे में उसकी लगन,
2018 के लिए यही शूभकामना,
वह एक सपना बने एक हकीकत,
और आपको मिले सफलता का एहसास।

2018 Dreams

A dream hidden,
in the corner of the heart,
Awakened,
With a word here,
Or a leaf falling there,
Ignored,
Put to sleep,
For time is short,
Work is long,
Duties are many,
And dreams become dust,
In a corner of your heart.

In the 18th year of this century,
Let your dream come to fore,
Reach it,
Touch it,
Feel it,
Release it,
Let it become a part of,
You,
Your daily work,
A reality of your life.

This is what I am wishing you,
Not happiness,
Nor health,
Nor wealth,
But, the daring,
To live your dream,
The dedication to drive,
And, a destiny,
For a dream defined,
A dream Spirited!
