The drop of elixir from the heavens tickled in
He is invading the skies with trumpet and clarion
Howling winds paved the way
The mighty monsoon’s conquest has began .
Inundated fields, soggy feathers
Yells of the boatman from the banks
Nobody to cross the swollen river
Forsaken roads, puddles awaiting kids
A long sigh escaped, no paper boats
Even monsoon was deserted!

Hot summer day…
begins with the mundane monotony…
progress to fiery noon…
so aggressive …don’t dare to face his ire..
longer days for the sun…
poor earth! struggles to absolve his intense love..
the inferno of hot passion…
The blazing sun has started his westward journey
Soon the coverlet of darkness will envelope my sky
What awaits me after this darkest night
Puzzles and vexed me with all its might.
The impartial witness,cherishing His realms
struggles through the thick dark clouds
Flashing and lashing the heavenly eyes
The pangs of your sobs echoed through out the skies.
Lost in this wilderness, a lone shadow in this fief
Stands with full faith for the elixir of life.
Lo! in the faraway horizon you have risen
Spreading hope and life all again!
Don’t enthuse me with the charms of the world
Don’t propel my thoughts to leave your shade
Let me be with you… drenched in eternal bliss.
O! Lord shield me in this skittish peregrination.
When you slept that eternal sleep
That serene smile adoring your face
How hard it was to convince myself
You won’t awake….Nay
You have awaken eternally…
You live through your kindly deeds
And through the ever blossoming memories…
Cancer be not proud.

It is the mightiest motivator
Creator of never dying passion
Igniter of your slumbering self
The wind of freedom to soar higher.
