Straighten the wire
with your thumb,
until the unyielding wire
makes a deep reddish mark,
the reddish mark changes to a dirty black
and yet you haven’t reached that perfect straight you are expected to
Your hands start burning,
and yet no change.
Hours tick by,
and yet no change.
but suddenly, so suddenly
the staff gives a little click
Remember those days
when we striven for a break
and when the break arrives
we tend to strive to go back to our routine.
During the routine,
we feel mechanized.
During the break,
we feel to be lacking our very identity.
At every point of time, we tend to lack something
if that’s how we perceive it.
Changing this perception
changes everything beautifully.
What i admire the most about you
is how well you balance your life.
You study when you have to
you smile when you feel like
you play when you desire
and make all around you stunned.
you are a friendly girl moving with all
with no secondary thoughts.
You are also a smart lad
filled with genius answers
and thought provoking questions.
You are also a woman of great virtues
you have chosen the path of righteousness
and developed the skill to speak out the truth
with a grace.
Your kind and care-some nature
meets no bounds.
I hope our journey of friendship
lasts forever…..and ever….
Going down on the landscape slide
as the years pass by
the world goes narrower
Imagination curbed to reality
brain shrunk in the narrow realms of reality.
Losing sight of either sides
running along as heart pants
in the narrow stream
aiming at a never ending destination.
Cheerful as a morning blossom
spontaneous as a jet
clever as a mongoose
jumping as a little frog in its lovely bog
walks a girl holding her lustrous traits
with utmost grace
to embrace her kith and kin
with her clever wit and humor
is my dear friend
a one in million.
The feel of first ray
is what her presence feels like.
After all these years,
When we speak with our old friends
We realise that one thing
that our elders always have said –
We don’t know what is their journey,
or what is their destiny?
Everyone though they are your best friends,
studying in the same class
with the same kind of resources,
turn out to be different
in a way, you can never imagine.
Retrospecting the days of past
I realise how time changes
everything and everyone
just like a giant wheel
with its various position of carts.
Wind arose from place unknown
Spreading my face like a hurricane flush
Drinking away the heat of afternoon
reminding me of the dear times
in this very same space.
Got ready to move on to a distant place
bidding goodbye to this lovely environment
dear to my heart.
But what I learnt from my frequent travels
to live far off is
As the waves pass by,
so the memories of remote past.
As the new tide arises,
so comes fresh new experiences.
Shaping a brand new you
for a brand new tomorrow.
