SPIRITOMETRY



How you stirred
my galactic eyes;
it whirled, and whirled
pirouette to your uniforce dream -
a notion
to my sight

a distant merger -
Becoming of me
no less you, nor less mine
to treasure a look
in your spiritometry

ROPING UP AN IGNORANCE



I never waited
to stand a while
and let the fruits fall
naturally from the branches of a tree, and

In ignorance
I started plucking fruits
from an old tree
Knowing not
how others could feel the pain

Truth belied

I turned
to my inner ignorance
and
plucked my ears or two
in repentance

and, stiated my 'self'
roping up a bucket-full
from a deeper well
of my ignorance

VILLAGE LIFE



I run my thoughts
On the wings of a butterfly
And
I would see with bigger eyes
the caravans -
Busy ants marching in search of foods 

Life in village -
So tranquil, so true
The musical notes 
of falling rains;
How not to wet and quench our soul 
The quack, and the cawing 
Routine of the day

Little childrens
Run, and play
Frocking their pleasure out 
Parents walk their fields;
Grandmother gossip soft, and
Grandfather take his Hukkah out 

I run my thoughts
on my loving past: my Village life
That
This city hub make a desert
of my present  


All ruins, and no joy

LIPSING OF MY HEART



You walk mountains
of your thoughts
Raising heights over heights;
I of a lighter veins 
flap my wishes 
in supplication at your altar
May with prayerful hands, and
mumbling lips
You could hear 
Lipsing of my heart

निर्मल



कण कण में फैलाती
अरुण कमल
विप्र धार
सहज संजोए
शांत सरल
भाव यह कितना निर्मल

पूज्य प्रणय
प्राण सकल
मोक्ष वन्दना
हर दिन, हर पल
कितना निश्छल, ह्रदय
वरुण तल

रिमझिम रिमझिम
बरस
भावेग में बह
पसर पसर
कितना निश्छल, कितना निर्मल

YARN



One spinning
was not enough
for the yarn
to make a fabric of my own
and
embellished it atop
layering one more
over my skin
with
thoughts and spaces -
time in haste
running by

PRUDENCE



Your pages
in omnibuses of wisdom
started flipping
pages one after the other
by the light of the night wind

Emblazoned
with starry eyes
an invisibility sweeps
across the skies
echoing the realm of your stately kingdom

There, perching upturned
Owl of all wisdom
Take prudence
at the behest of
"Wish fulfilling tree"
