Until we Accost

Can you sense my throbbing heart,
pulsating with a valiant lubdub,
while my desirous soul
trying hard to catch breathe,
for I have your smile draping my visage

And I may be
a few thousand miles away
but my thought will stay with you tonight

And when deprive of sleep
I will gaze at the moon
your reflection in it
will make my countenance embrace your smile
making me remain in a unexplainable bliss
of delirious charm
thinking our time to accost is not that far

Diatribe

If you believe in your deeds, let no diatribe shatter your soul, for criticism are often a reflection of someone else’s mind.

Ethereal

Her charm
an early morning mist
dissolving in the soot
of some pewter skies

And her smile
an unsaid gospel
floating in the thin air
in dawn’s zephyr

And I
a lost soul
resting my anchor
in her ethereal demeanor
remaining forever in bliss

The Creeper

The violet lavender creeper
climbing the railing of the cafe
housed at the corner of the street
has a signature of its own
and its aura spread an enticing fragrance
dragging many wandering feet
to the helm of the milieu
for sharing smiles and lifting souls

Silent Prayers

From a distance she watches me,
keeping my thoughts in her breath
as she recite her hymns
casting my image
in the folds of her eyelids
giving me a divine touch
through some unsaid verse

Hope Against Hope

The stern of the ship,
was at a 15 degrees tilt,
almost at a point to capsize.

Scare ridden passengers,
were in chaos and despair,
Everyone running for life,
everyone entwined,
In some torrid affair.

And in that hullabaloo,
And in the midst of the commotion,
few panic soul,
caught the captain’s sight.

They ran for help,
With hope-laden eyes,
To seek their survival chance,
And any scope of respite.

The captain knew,
The fate of the ship,
Yet he smiled,
And affirmatively said,
That everything will be alright.

The panic receded,
The anxiety waned,
And people bonded,
It was such a pleasing sight.

The riders joined the seamen,
The davits were lowered,
People worked with candor and displayed pride.

And as luck would have it,
The storm abated,
The ship stabilized,
The frail hope of the captain,
Brought the miraculous surprise.

When everything is lost,
Hope triumphs,
So believe in yourself,
It seldom fails and never let you deprive

Family Vibes

Life is all about treasuring small pleasures and filling your heart with charming vibes to enjoy one leaf at a time in leisure time.

I am treasuring one such memory today when my son texted me the following.

He did a chore for me with a great sense of humor.

Our Love

Like some climbers veins
wrapping a tree
you embrace every crevice
every corner of my being
and drenched in your love
I dissolve in you
like some Corinthian dream

Our Blessed Love

The brilliance of some shimmering light
that often overwhelms your soul
making you put a shroud
over your surging emotions
to avoid any confrontation
are nothing but shades of my love
waiting to accost you
embrace you
in our blessed love
