Passé

 I

came with

nothing.

Why should I?

Look behind

Or ahead

Moments pass…

Reel

 Memories live forever;

Envisage images, fading reels.

Feel deep within.

Spoken words on good old times,

Recreate, but a duplicity.

Feel deep within.

The other self, memorizes.

Tree

“My greens turn yellow

As some of my family

We fall and get carried away

somewhere in the garden

We are there…”

Tenacious little petiole

Held together, what once

Was a charming leaf

That fell off into my arm

The same afternoon, I chose to sit under its tree

Reminiscing one particular day from childhood

Where I fell down with a cup of ice cream

And my father called it my tree.

Once

A regression model;

A collection of soft toys decorated the room.

Before my enquirer mind

Could manage to lay claim on speech,

She smiled innocently;

“I never had these once.”

Indispensable

My God told me once,

In the silence of my mind and calmness of heart

That, I’m unique and Society pretend not to understand.

I cried; He said laugh, and I laughed my way to life.

Then I looked around, wise and aware,

With a silent mind and calm heart;

Each one of us cried, and laughed;

Their way to indispensable life.

Colourless

Neutral

I float in a sea of space,

Colourless, odourless bay;

Who are you and who am I

Nurtures neutral shades;

Truth is called naked

Where nomads live fearlessly.

I hear my beating heart murmur syllables,

Mind awakens to present;

Meditative stage detours,

Reality a sea of constant mirage.

…did we…

My words, your words

Same thought, same situation

I lived with time, you chased all the time

Here we are older and beautiful

What did we want any way?

The words resonated….
