Life

Eyes closed light blocked
Heart closed love blocked
Both opened life enthralled

Old Age

Fading eyesight frozen memories
Failed hearing shaken joints
Wrath of nature curse on old age

The Three Apples

Savored by Eve an apple vanished
Unleashing miseries on mankind
For which the world still suffers

Sighted by Newton a fallen apple
Oriented the gravitation theory
For which the world always indebted

Synchronized by Steve Jobs
Surfaced the Apple gadgets
For which the world forever rejoice

Broken Heart

Nothing to tell, lots to feel
Past leaving piercing pain
Standing here heart-broken

Fear to sleep, dreams are dreaded
Dear to none walking all alone
Standing here heart broken

Fragrance stinks flavor stirs
Music causing migraines
Standing here heart broken

Anger roars hunger snores
Acts of madness musing all
Standing here heart broken

Wisdom Sealed

Millions and Billions starve for food
Billions and Trillions spent on arms
Wisdom sealed.

Presidents and Premiers talk of welfare
Coffers emptied for sake of warfare
Wisdom sealed.

Hunger leads to many a death
Wealth stored in many a locker
Wisdom sealed.

Resourceful few rejoice with luxuries
Remaining lot rot in poverty
Wisdom sealed.

The Real Side of Love

"Love is blind" trust not, for
The base is built on lust indeed
"Love is divine" believe not, for
The theme ends always on selfish note!

Seldom its for a social cause
But always love is overrated
Never it lighted lives of people around
But always love is over weighed!

The desire of two genders coming together
The dreams built on fatal attractions
The pains rained on other than these two
Is this love so divine or to be lauded?

Peace of Mind

O peace! give me the pace to have a glimpse of you!
Elusive you are! Leaving illusions all around!

Temples and Mosques, Churches and Asylums
Wander the mortals in quest of reaching your portals

Men and Women, rich and the poor, scholars and scoundrels
Submit their prejudice for seeking a nap on your lap

Millions and billions may swell the coffers
There dwells a hell when your stay is put to nil

Comforts and luxuries, power and authority
Seldom fetch the joy of your ever soothing serenity

Greed less minds, compassionate hearts, unruffled souls in joy and grief
Are the ones after whom you run seeking an abode for you to rest

My Cute Little Friend

I have a little friend cute and sweet
Aged roughly eighteen months
Fair and fleshy like a folktale Angel
Agile and active all through the day

On seeing a person known to her
Shoots out a smile worth many a millions
A set of eight teeth sparkling out
Adds beauty to the priceless smile

By raising her hands from far distance
Reaches her caller with uneven running
A hug is a reward for lifting her up
With showers of kisses as token of love

Her index finger directs the way
To take to the places of her choice
The little mouth that gave captive smile
Bites hard if her mood is foul

The Solitary Soul

O Soul! Sow never any seeds of attachment
Reaping the fruits of dismay looms large
Restrict your desires for objects of no-life
For they can't deceit you with acts of detachment

Grow not your fantasies around the people you like
That makes you live for ever in a Fool's paradise
Sincere may be your expectations from the beloved
Contempt is the reward awarded for your concern

Cynical you are overwhelmed by emotions
Clinical are people in keeping you at bay
Fondness of your roaming through memory lanes
Earns you the name of eccentric for being non-realistic

Restrain the heart from craving for others!
Motives attributed for no fault of yours
Bid a farewell to your emotional bondage
To confront the coming times with wretches of solitude
