Your Guidance

102_1784

I carry with me the rare gifts showered

Those which You’ve graciously bestowed

These are the light for me in dark moments

At times counted as my achievements

They are neither my accolades nor

Do they define who I am in any war

These are neither my life’s sole identity

Nor do they fill me with feelings of superiority

These gifts are the humbleness

You taught by depicting kindness

Being patient in times of hardships

Not being slave to any ploys or whips

Striking the chord at the right time

Embracing friends & foes with same rhyme

You’ve fulfilled your celestial role here

Left it to us to learn to love and care

Your presence on earth is a divine delight

It is an infinite & eternal spread of light

Your journey fills one heart with might

Each recounted event is a new height

When one is blessed with Your guidance

Each moment is filled with reverence

This is the greatest gift ever given

Blessed are the souls who’ve taken!

 

Lessons

Surrounded by ample mystery

Every step filled with great intensity

Of feelings & emotions that flow

In a strange abrupt pushing to new low

Was this the fear of newness or change?

Is this a battle to fight or experience to divulge?

Conscience is warning against the steps

Strong emotions are pulling into weird trips

Is this a cloud I’ve just entered?

Is there an exit to it, is what I feared?

Is this a roller-coaster ride designed for me?

Is there a bright dawn ahead for me ever to see?

Questions are popping like arrows

Emotions are draining the self into fallows

Is this a divinely designed lesson

What is the summary of this season?

Intuition is the ultimate source to guide

Tough times come with a message in this ride

It is for bidding adieu to patterns that are old

To replace redundant traits with newness of gold

Tough times strike not to serve a death blow

It is to rejuvenate one with a new flow

It is to end all the confusions of the past

To experience newness of life in vast

It is to replace guilt with love

As fresh and as pure as a white dove

To learn compassion in life to progress

To leave behind revenge & not to regress!

Aura

102_1784

Your presence is the fragrance

That surrounds my essence

Reminds me your deeds & divinity

I try to comprehend there is infinity

Which I cannot yet grasp

But for which I breathe & rasp

Bless me that my breath in this journey

Shall encounter Your aura & infinity!

Winds

When stormy winds come to greet me

In the midst of my long & curvy path

Let me not forget that you are there to see

That I learn my lessons without any wrath

 

When dusty winds cross my day’s toil

In this journey of small steps to cover miles

Let me remember that there is no glory in foil

That which you taught with gentle smiles

 

When coarse winds cut across the reap

In this fertile land where I’ve sown my grains

Let me remind myself that it is no good to weep

That the heap shall accumulate later when it rains

 

When dry winds cut across my skin’s surface

In this new land of options & opportunities

Let me repeat that there are many faces in this race

That teaches the law of change & need for peace

 

When there is no more wind that I can feel some day

In this land which I thought was mine with pride

Let me revisit my efforts & memories in a way

That rejuvenates & adds essence to my soul’s stride…

Elixir

I remember your gentle whispers during my soul’s quest

This is the elixir to my life’s existence on this territory

I pay my ovation to you on all moments in this fest

Your words are my shields that symbolize the ultimate victory

 

Countless battles are fought on this rough terrain

But I cannot forget your gentle & gracious sway

You’re healing words & the acts of valour I cannot refrain

From recollecting till my last breathe all through this way

 

I remember you not just for being on right path & victorious

But spreading across the message of unconditional Love

To this torn heart of drudgery your message was a gracious

And warm celebration of human existence, nothing else to prove

 

I’m blessed to have imprinted your memories on my soul

Grateful for having your gentle & warm words on my lips

My split & torn heart is joining itself to be complete & whole

With strength & courage to view & live life in all lows & highs.

Bliss

Living each moment of one’s life to the fullest

Embracing the message in the given moment

Spreading love and hope as it the richest

Message carried on by us here with a wonderful scent.

 

The scent & beauty of spreading love and hope

Shall make one feel complete & in solace

This is the real medicine for a human to cope

From all gash & take pain & pleasure in same pace.

 

This is the simple & timeless truth of living

In times of pleasure & accepting pain as it is

With this realization in life; joyfully riding

 And beautifully carving the path with a gentle muse.

 

Action to help a living being; gives one freedom’s wings

It is the bliss of staying in someone’s heart forever

Living life with a purpose & contentment that rings

Proclaiming its motto as ‘live and let live’ is bliss forever!

Behold…

You want to play with me Dear
Then you may hurt yourself in fear
You desire to mimic my tune & rhythm
It is a dangerous play but removes phantom
You wish to use my warmth when cold
It teaches courage and to be bold.

You hope to live and nurture in my space
Then you will learn to embrace me with grace
You dream to be fierce like me in all wars
Then follow your passions & reach the stars
As I’m the indomitable spirit in this universe
Learn to encompass this wisdom in all your verse.

Everything that begins has to end one day
Let this day be rejoiced as a day of rebirth of a ray
A ray that is as virtuous as fire & as pure as a dove
The phoenix shall rise from its own ashes to sow
The imprints & the beauty of this insight forever
In humanity, so that it never wavers again ever.

Who am I?

I’m Truth…

A Stranger

A stranger’s voice seemed to be familiar

Unknowingly dropping me into a daze

There is a feeling that I need to deliver

A message to this stranger without a faze

 

Started speaking hurriedly in a bizarre flow

The stranger replied but didn’t get the essence

Attempt to elucidate my message invited a hollow

Felt this is no more apt as it is making no sense

 

Not sure if this stranger is a foe or a friend

From the wild unknown past, yet I pronounce

This peculiar interaction as the very end

Of this meeting, as I wish not to denounce

 

I’m not capable to bear the wrath of denouncement

As I intended not to harm but hoped for greater good

Let this be called an announcement or a pronouncement

I wish to be free & not to be possessed by any hood

 

My message seems to be undelivered to the stranger

As the paths chosen are different- crazily or cautiously

Let there be no other meeting as I’m no game changer

Time answers the questions & I shall wait patiently.

Nature

d95e4fbd-dbe3-4201-af5a-f2ca74c7d556_6

I’m the flowing water that loves its own serenity

Of moving across plains, plateaus, hills in eternity

 

I’m the fluttering butterfly that adds colours

It helps in regeneration across the flowers

 

I’m the breeze that touches across lows & highs

It shall reach heart’s deepest core without any vies

 

I’m the blue sky that aspires to reach for stars

Adds amazement alike during bright & dark hours

 

I’m the burning fire that is always fighting away fear

To embark on a new journey with the near & dear

 

I’m a union of all these elements by divine miracle & grace

Yet question my existence in idiocy amidst this worldly race

 

A question that haunts me all day and night

Did I come to become a participant of a race or fight?

 

The answer is never affirmative, yet my restless mind

Is so used to this old patterns; but it shall one day find

 

A new dawn where all the questions ceases to exist

As my breath discoveres its purpose for this visit

 

Let this new dawn be showered on all those who wander

In search of clarity & light; & bestow with divine surrender

 

Let my existence be never questioned on any day

I shall move with the five elements just like a ray!

Choices

images (8)

She travelled an extra mile

To get back long lost smile

Took a deep breath for a while

To let go of any kind of vile

 

She just saw river water flow

The speed of her steps is slow

To remove all the buried hollow

To rise to new vision from low

 

She could feel the warm breeze

It gently removed all crease

She felt anew, calm & peace

It’s fresh, an effect of confusion cease

 

An orb guided her to a place

The stride there is sans race

Her inner beauty increased the pace

It gently lit brightly all the days

 

All the days of her life are now

Full of surprises, newness as she bow

To the divine call & unconditional Love

Her heart & actions are as pure as a dove

 

Everyone is given a chance to choose

This is the time to be diligent & muse

Life is not meant to be an unworthy ruse

It’s meant to add meaningful colour to the view

 

When the choices are made in true spirit

It shall be followed by myriad merit

The path for co-passengers is also lit

It is a decision of the heart & not wit.
