    Bequeathed art

    First time when I grabbed
    The pen to paint my monotonous
    Canvas with artistic shades
    Dilemma's inside of me questioned__
    "Would you be able to do it?"
    Still I search for the answer every day
    And the quest ends when
    I dredge back bequeathed art
    Little more to attain some lore
    Then the voice of gratitude says, see
    How amazingly dead poets painted it for you

    Addicted to the dark light
    Of night sky with sheer delight
    That I turn off every artificial bright,
    And wish electricity to stay off till midnight
    So that I can gulp the glass of ghazal
    With my selective sanguine sights.

    Sunflower

    Some prodigious poets
    Titled me with wowser
    De facto a sinner
    Failed oracle considered
    As chef d'Oeuvre
    From golden tears
    To special outsider
    All appeared millionaire
    Beloved kin embowered
    Unfadingly love showered
    Verses of patience
    Caparisoned with power

    Gratitude to all caretakers
    Who have joined together
    And vowed to make
    This place a sunflower!

    You're all Invincible

    Broken fetters and manacles
    Left my own world of shambles
    On your doorstep without hustle
    One is you: Invincible
    One is me: Incorrigible
    You're a bundle of miracles
    Add me in those chronicles
    Am I not eligible and compatible?
    To get your one glimpse of twinkle!

    I met a writer from a cosmic world

    I met a writer
    from a cosmic world
    Who said____
    I feel the aura
    and efficacy
    Of your poetries
    every evening
    When I sit
    on the pedestal
    of my terrace

    I listen to your
    euphoric verses
    every dusk in the
    Flutter of warblers
    returning to their nests

    I behold the inveteracies
    of your declarations
    In every knackered souls
    passing by the road
    carrying bags filled
    With gazettes and groceries
    Back to their homes

    I sense the reclusion
    of your brief spells
    (That vanished in front
    of catchy narratives and epics)
    In this new age chic
    smouldering their cigars resolutely

    I met a writer
    from a cosmic world
    Who goes on to say that
    'I'm not a writer'
    But was destined
    To take the circular shape
    of a drop which subsists
    in this vast blue ocean!

    • Athirst ( strong crazy desire)
    • conspicuous ( noticeable)
    • Lachrymosity ( something tearful)
    • Allegiance ( devotion, loyalty)
    • cadence ( A rhythmic flow of words)

    • Clarence here refers to Clarence Thomas who is famous for having doubted the resurrection of Jesus Christ

    A COMMENCEMENT

    Athirst for conspicuous change
    But crunch in self credence
    Lachrymosity out of allegiance
    (In)candescent into clarence
    Cracked zilch except grand cadence

    Once when I was young and angry

    Once when I was young and angry
    People exulted, left me in misery
    It didn't shake my ignited imagery
    But resulted in making me a denizen of solitary

    I wasn't studying then in nursery
    Neither was indulged in playful gimmickry
    Looked forward to attain ethereal mastery
    By rebuffing overtures to be a voluptuary

    Ultimately inclined in the realm of poetry

    To all my dear fellow writers
    Write to #heal

    Are you writing?

    Write to bring the change
    Write to break the fence
    Write to be viewed outside the lens
    Your words shouldn't be confined hence
    In the colorful World of pens and stains

    It reminded me of a quote by Wordsworth
    "Nature never did betray a heart who loved her."
    So.... I wonder whether I slammed or loved nature last night!

    Love or slam?

    Last night
    I slammed nature
    For being mundane
    And today
    Nature gifted me
    With several
    Moment's of treats.
