Sublime

Tell me my love, tell me
In which language
The heart relates its story
To my wink-less eyes
Where my emotions
Take a pause
To slowly crystallize.

Tell me my love, tell me
What the Spring confides
To the breeze that in turn whispers
Some sweet-nothings
In the ears of jasmines,
Who in turn spill out the beans.

Beauty and Glory

Long after she departed
Behind the closing-door
Her image lingered in my private closet
With such fragrance,
Such sweetness
Which I wish would linger till eternity.,

A picture of such serene
Ecstasy overtook me
And rendered my longings
Passionately beautiful,
Like a present bud
Pacing towards a future flower.

Shadow

No more I toil to get out
Of the shadow
Which thickens
Every passing moment.

Strangely enough,
The urge to come out of it
Has given way
To a desire to languish in it.

I took forward to a
Splendid metamorphosis
Of the shadow
Like the one under
The great Peepal tree from where
A shaft of light divine
Enlightened the universe.

Alphabet of Love

You taught me the alphabet of love
And I learnt it with the ease
Of my mother tongue,

You told me
That cherished dreams
Some day come true,
And I remained awake
The whole night
To dream the dream.

You asked me
To think lofty
And since then,
I have been measuring
The length and breadth of the sky
And counting the stars of the Milky Way.

Nostalgia

Stubborn nostalgia
Pricks and makes my soul bloody
Like thorns of a red rose
Making so to a tender palm.

Today, the shelter-home and
The familiar street look deserted
And the cuckoo sings hoarse.

Inadequate monsoon
Gets wayward and lost
In cups of tattered foliage.

My sky, stars, clouds
And my earth shamed
And shocked by an untimely
Autumnal nudity.

Quick Sand Of Time

I sink into oblivion
On the quicksand of Time
As neither violet nor gray shade
Hold any good.

The fragrance and flower
The aroma and earth
No more hold any good
As I sink into the quicksand of Time.

The youth and age
No more hold any good
As the opening note of the lullaby
And the closing note of the dirge
Sound jarring to my ears
As I sink into the quicksand of Time.

Three Make a Crowd

If you nod
To my rose,
How easy it is for me
To plough the earth
And dot it all over
With a multitude...

If you consent
To live with me,
How happy
I shall be to build
A palace in mid-air
Above my thatched roof...

If only you wish
To listen to my sonnet,
How easy it is for me
To compose an epic
Of million couplets
And recite it for you

Destitution

In the face of your
Erratic eloquence
My tender ego
Gets vanquished
Into a bruised Silence
Like a shivering dove
Facing a tottering shaft.

As the renewed vigor of your arrogance
Trample over and subjugate
The finer blades of my dreams
My masculine bravery
Gets taken over
By an enduring timidity.

I dare not confide
The cherished chapter of my autobiography,
As I get reduced
Into a shameless mass of destitution.

Fusion

I blend it to you
When my solitary dream,
Sensuously private
Gets drenched in your scent
That sweetens my living memory.

I connect it to you
When my lonely heart
Gets thrilled by the
Rhetoric of a couplet
Composed in an intense
Moment of poetic intoxication.

I tune it to you
When a slow rhythm
Of an ecstatic feeling
Engulfs me in its fold that
Emanates from numerous strings
By conjuring up a melody
Never sang before.

My Maiden Flight

Very often I smell
A temporary breath
Of a petal of hope
Getting evaporated
Into the vacuum
Under my nose.

When love
Like a solitary drop
Seeps through
The unseen pores
Of a sandy bed
Of a dreary desert.

Trust gets twisted
At its crucial joints
Like the tender bones
Of a still-born babe
In the murky corridors
Of a tiny coffin.
