The Threshold Love…

While, flipping through the pages of history,
Gracefully my eyes on an ancient Love memory.
The memory drifted me aback to a king and queen,
Their indomitable love to colossus space did preen.
King-Shah Jahan, young successor to mughal throne,
The wheeling time spilled him on every architectural stone.
For his lovable empress Mumtaz Mahal’s last dream,
The Taj-Mahal’s amber beauty bestowed gleam.
Milky tomb in the banks of Yamuna River,
Breathed pearly on the reflections shiver.
Today, the splendor national heritage,
A top wonderer to the world’s gaze.

Ah! The man’s charcoal dipped deeds,
Yamuna, turning hollow as it brutally breeds.
River-the base for tall tomb’s stand,
Fading slowly to a barren land.
Smokes of agony fountain onto the sky,
As her pious soul chokes in piteous cry.

Oh my countrymen!
We-the only savior to callous man’s greed,
Nor any heaven’s angel to pay heed!
Let our veins be clean as spotless dove,
To sparkle love for the threshold love.

Love And Walnut

Charcoal burns without flames-
Red heat in the snowy night
Massages stiffened muscles.
A squirrel cracks walnuts of love.
Couples cover up spaces around the bonfire.
Place for one left…
I stand thinking to share it
With the squirrel.
Love has dimensions
Walnuts too.

Swaying Bridge Of Senescence

Why do my heart-beats
Force me:
To place scissors, knives
Upon my naked neck;
To feel
The clotting of blood
Or a flow through capillaries;
Silent in fear of
The cold metallic touch.
Boiling fluids turn icy
The joining bridge of
Life and death
Sways in senescence.

Let Me Bloom

You wait for me to open
Like a new banana leaf,
Or, as petals of a marigold
In dry winters…

You wait for the third eye
To arise and see,
Apart from walking and talking
Crowds, caring relatives
Paying jobs…

Give me water. I will bloom
Into sun
To be for the green and greenery,
For beings that need my warmth
More than you.
