    How to

    Every morning I wake up
    and make perfect coffee,
    with fresh beans of thoughts
    I put them in empty day’s cup.
    Add spoonful of cinnamon sticks
    from balcony’s sunlight
    I grind them with sound
    of silent fights waging in my mind
    with rich cream based smile.
    Sipping the warm cup of life
    I blow away steam of sighs
    to welcome new day so bright.

    Winter

    She arrives in stark white cold veil
    kissing silently with soft snow flakes
    singing ballads in season’s praise
    without fail
    carries frozen tears gracefully .

    In the evening of my life
    gazing at the dying sunsets
    listening to the music of nights
    while I was drowning in loneliness
    a light came in the sea of darkness
    like a smile in the sea of sadness
    like a lotus exhibiting calmness
    like dew drops showing fearlessness
    like a feather flying in happiness
    like a bud opening it's shyness
    like a fallen flower blooming wilderness
    like a tree growing in barrenness
    like a star twinkling in gloominess
    each moment ended bringing newness.

    When I wrote your name
    on the bark of a tree
    Leaves danced in ecstasy
    blossoming the woods of poetry….

    Everyday when dawn knocks
    on my window
    I leap out of my dream world
    n’ head for my nearest park.
    Slowly creamy sunlight tiptoes
    and massage my taut nerves
    for a fresh start.
    While walking on lush green grass
    daily I see a frail old man
    digging,pruning,tending the plants
    oblivious to the people around
    his head bowed to the ground ,
    lost in his own world
    sweating head to toe
    carrying a hoe
    little does he know
    the value of his knowhow.
    Treading on the dew drops of grass
    I wonder…….whether they are
    nature’s treat for us
    Or they are gardener’s sweat
    //longing to nourish Mother Earth//

    Morning feeds me cornflakes sunlight with the warm milky smile of day.
    Aroma of multiple chores start brewing in my cup of coffee
    to burn calories stale….

    My tongue keeps burning after being offered tart words,writhing in pain ,wrapped in silver foil
    from time to time.They are becoming hard to digest in the twilight years of life.The more I try to swallow their bitter taste,the more I’ve to chew.Their juices flow in my veins turning my tears into cherries on the /cakes/I’ve been baking all my life in the oven of hopes.Journals of delicious recipes I’ve been hiding in the attic of my heart have become like coal fire
    of hearth ; when their heat is about to die life puts fresh coal on the dying chambers of my heart.My throat gets parch dry with chilli flakes flying out of soot of my mistakes.My first mistake was that I let go the mistakes of others to make peace in life ,second mistake was that I kept forgiving them,third I remained unable to control the birth of their mistakes.

    We are in the ocean of love
    dancing like waves
    gathering shells of happiness
    in the maelstrom of life.
    We shall leave pearls of poesies
    of our immortal love
    inking on the sands of time……

    Autumn

    When trees shed their golden crowns
    leaves gleefully kiss their burial ground
    when winds whisper melancholy songs
    earth cheers with crispy crunchy sounds
    when self esteem of bare branches is low
    the bark of trees inhale exhale to glow
    when barren minds wander too slow
    pockets of poets with verses,overflow
    //when groves look like empty homes
    spring smiles in mother nature’s womb //

    The last leaf

    I’m the last leaf of autumn
    who witnessed the pain of goodbyes,
    grief of being alone and pangs
    of separation in hope of reunion.
