“Hi Ariadne,
Thank you so much for having me on the show!
Here is the poem I wrote for Canada today on her
day: “Dear Canada”.

 

Dear Canada

in your land
of hope
sprouts success
in your flag
I see
the dreams
of millions
In your
cool breezes
I see
the desire
to thrive
this is the land
where people
can grow
their thoughts
with your open arms
you welcome everybody
you give them
love and laughter
to share
so people don’t
want to
leave you
Dear Canada
God Bless You!

A poem for peace.

UNDER MY EYELIDS

I want to share
Smiles with hope
As it flutters
like a butterfly
around rainbow of laughter
I want to
hold hands with love
and become one with it
I want to
cherish a moment
With friendship and trust
 I want that
There will be no wind of pain .
Only Breeze of understanding
Flowing amongst us
I want
that In my
Canvas of imagination
I can paint
A perfect world
With no boundaries
But
When I wish out loud ……
People called me crazy
And I’m left alone
With my dream of peace
Swaying under my eyelids.

——————-

मै  चाहती   हूँ 

उम्मीद   की  मुस्कान  को  बाँटना

उस  तरह

जैसे  तितली  हँसी  के  इन्द्रधनुष  से  बातें  करती  है

मै  चाहती  हूँ

प्यार  से  हाथ  पकड़   के

उसमे  समा  जाऊँ

मै   चाहती   हूँ

दोस्ती   और   विश्वास  के ,

लम्हे  का  आनन्द  लेना

मै  चाहती  हूँ

के  दुःख  की  हवा  न  चले

समझ  की  रिमझिम  फुहार

हम  सभी  के  बीच

बहती  रहे

मै  चाहती  हूँ

के  मेरे  कल्पना  के  कैनवास  पर

एक  ऐसा  संसार  रच  सकूँ

जिसमे  कोई  सरहद  न  हो

लेकिन  जब

मै  अपनी  चाहत

 सबको  बताती  हूँ

लोग  मुझे  पगली  कहते  हैं

और  मै  अकेली  छोड़  दी  जाती  हूँ

अपने  शान्ती  के  सपने  के  साथ

जो  अभी  भी

मेरी  पलकों  में  पलता  है
