Sun will rise

The orange stain

The sun
hides in vain
Unaware
of its orange stain

Into darkness
it stoops low
Alas betrayed
by the loony glow

Its just
an intervening night
for the illuminate
It is to shine bright

Reluctance and doubts
the light dispels
the mirror introduces
the light to itself

The rise is seen
Shining on the morning dew
Vibrant red
in the morning new

Aware
Realised
Resplendent
shining bright
within and outside

Underneath the starry sky

Underneath the starry sky
Its lonely
They are so many
and its only me

Do they see
The twinkle in my eye?
Or can they see
the cleverly concealed lie?

Merrily they stand and watch
Transfixed in their velvety black dome
Unable themselves, yet mocking
Hoping I wouldn’t save my self on my own

Dawn is breaking
Its the end of thier time
Its a new day
And they know its mine

Right now I have this day to finish

Each box ticked
Whew!! the work is done.
the day draws to an end
and we count it as one.

Rising again with the sun
Unwilling to start the next count
Yet eager to finishing this one
boxes to be ticked, once again mount

Each count ends in a week,
quitely into a month, the week crept
I celeberate the birth one more time
Counting the many nights I have slept

Counting the nights was easy,
For the sleeping part I was sure.
Did I wake up or just sleep walked?
Of the day I was not sure.

On the moving tread I walked
counting the steps and time,
Achievements recorded on the counter
Celeberations for with every chime

I ran and walked
moving constantly on the set pace
Tired and exhausted,
yet competing the static race

In this race, I am running.
finish line is everyone’s dread
Yet in the race
I run faster instead.

I know I have another half to live
For doing all the things I wish
there will be time to live my life
But now, I have this day to finish

चलो नई कहानी लिखें

अपनी स्याही
अपने किरदार
एक कहानी हो गयी

एक से मोहबत
और एक से नफरत
क्या कहानी हो गयी

नाम किरदार का याद रहा
अपनी पहचान भूल गए
कहानी, एक सच्चाई हो गयी

किरदारों से वाह वाह
ये अब कैसी उम्मीद है जो
अजब बेबसी हो गयी

नए रंग की दवात ली है
नए रंगों से नए किरदार लिखेंगे
एक हसीन कहनी हो गयी

The moment arrives

Fleeting moments
Riding the rush of the river
Uncertain drops,
Merging with the flow

Turbulent yet confined
Jagged rocky banks say “you can’t”
Masquerading norms, warm the cocoon,
benovalence is just a show

The froth explains the churn
between the Will and the Fear
the Will loses, alas
Restrained passion, stays in tow

It ain’t over yet
Says a stubborn drop.
It leaps over the froth,
Puts up a spectacular show

What could not, has been done.
It’s moment has arrived,
The drop soars bright
It has found its own glow
