A tryst with nature

Sun rise

 

When the sun kisses the earth

When the cool breeze embraces us with love

When the cuckoos start singing

My little one wakes up and embraces his papa

A sweet little peck, that says – ‘good morning’!

Morning Sun

Each day brings such moments of joy –

to give a reason or two to celebrate a new beginning,

The smiling sun peeps through the windowpanes

becomes his first playmate of the day.

The morning breeze tickles him to giggle in joy,

Its time to be playful and naughty with nature !!

He turns aside and pokes his finger in papa’s nose

as he explores why papa snores at night!

Then he suddenly gets up and sits on papa’s back

he is then the fearless explorer on a horseback!!

The daylight brightens and we get up to go out

The little kid loves going out with his papa,

He knows its time to see new flowers –

the flowers that bring butterflies

the flowers that splashes color to life

flowers that bring new smell and new joy everyday.

He runs away to catch the butterflies

We run behind to catch him

the butterflies plays with him, sit on his nose,

it is a new flower for them.

The kid loves the game and hurriedly catches his nose.

The inset flies to his head!!

We watch him in amazement

as the kid plays with his new mates

they fall, they rise, rolls over each other

on soft wet grass,

the kid gets mud stained and pure,

as pure as the nature he plays with!!

The sun becomes harsh, as the day passes by

We come home and play indoor games.

Tiger, Elephant, Cheetah and Lion becomes his playmates

Everyday he creates a new world around these animals

they become his new pets.

As the sun sets, we go out to play near the lake

He wants to touch the water, swim across the lake,

He watches the fish plays around, comes close and runs away.

They are not as colourful as the ones in the aquarium!!

Aquarium

The lake is a big aquarium for him

he wants to touch the fish, catch them alive as he does at home.

They swim away, he runs after them in vogue.

We return home.

At home, he stares at his small marine world

and weaves millions of colorful dreams

as he crashes into bed.

Only for a new beginning, the next day.

क़ातिल

तुम्हारी उन क़ातिलाना नजरों को ज़रा सम्हाल के रखों!

तुम गिरफ्तार न हो जाओ!!

शायर

भिखारी

तुम्हारी उन नजरों ने मुझे दीवाना बना दिया,

The City Life

Malayasia 5

When the sun rises in the east

when it blossoms in my backyard

the cuckoos in the neighbor’s den,

or those early morning prayers – wakes me up everyday!!

I start running fast and quick,

because I need to win the race of life

I need to earn enough money and reputation for my family and wife!!

I am a slave to the capitalist world.

I don’t exist for myself today,

I don’t exist for myself anymore

In fact, I don’t know if I exist at all!!

Go Further

The boring black and white days and a routine life –

is what I have today.

I am happy as long as this help secure my future.

The future that I am not sure of

I will probably be a slave always.

Today the inner ‘I’ is slow-poisoned

he cries and asks for time from me.

He demands passion, sympathy

but I am bound by my slavery to the whole world except that inner ‘I’.

It was not supposed to be like this.

‘Me’and my soul was together once but

we have gone far apart now.

We look at each other from a distance

and I wonder if we were together at all.

[Feeling detached from your loved ones, see what BA has to offer here]

When I feel it is far too late

When the separation becomes unbearable,

I walk around for peace and space –

that can take away from the hustle of city life.

The space that can isolate me

from the drudgery of the material world.

This place is not far off – I don’t need to go miles to win my space.

It is there in my backyard –

the pristine lake that kisses the horizon

the lake that welcomes the morning walkers, evening storks and lonely me at nights.

I sit there in silence and watch thousands of nature’s wonders around

I start talking to my soul.

We fall in love with each other one more time.

We know as my slavery to the capitalism is needed

so is the rejuvenation in isolation.

I fall in love with life once again!!
