Thoughts On Turning 30

They might wish me 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'
or even 'many happy returns of the day'.
My folks send me gifts and greeting
congratulating me
on a life that's fleeting?
Yeah, so I happen to be pessimistic on this
One who sees the hour-glass of life half empty
rather than half full.
For I vision each birthday
as a step closer to old age
A step closer to dreaded death
It's hard to look forward to going gaga or decrepit
when smooth skin would become crumpled, wrinkled
The age of doddering limbs half in the grave

Sometimes I even have such an eccentric craving
to watch just any solid beauty melting smelting

Sing a song of Tajmahal

Sing a song of Tajmahal
a fine rhyme or a ghazal

Of this landmark for lovers
ah, a lover's edifice
Complete with medieval bowers
It's a Mecca for tourists!
Tis sensational, tis exceptional
tis truly a touristy place.

Watch the shimmer of its magnificent marbled dome
Moonlight or sunlight, it glimmers of imperial chrome
It's ironical then
that though Indian I am
I haven't yet been to this touristy place

It is truly as they must say, a lover's shrine
a place where hearts duly incline

They find it steamy
