Near Yet So Far

How many times I weave few words of love,
But refrain from showing you.
And those occasions when I harness some thoughts,
But abolish to express.
I often smile gazing the moon,
When I see your reflection in its shadow from time to time.
And the pitter-patter of raindrops on that windowsill,
How it reminds me of our endless talk.

The summer nights,
The starlit skies,
The evening hues,
The wilderness sights,

Every nature’s caper brings back the vivid memories,
The days of our bonding,
The trail of those beautiful times.

I try reaching out to you,
And though you are near,
Yet far away from my yearning heart

Hope beyond Adversity

Dancing wild in some boisterous thunderstorm,
Disheveled and scattered,
Draped in darkness,
Lost in the canvas of wilderness,
The raindrops fighting hard to sustain the squall.

And when the gale abates,
The fortitude prevails despite broken scape,
Those millions of helpless drops come together to form a gushing stream,
Flowing with vigor,
Defeating the ostensible destruction.

Osprey’s Maiden Flight

A young osprey taking its maiden flight,
Training to fly above the ocean before winter arrives,
The grit in her eyes is a beauty to engage,
The tender feathers fluttering with rage.

She falters many times,
Often she falls,
Despite all odds,
she didn’t lose hope.

For no storm can besiege her,
no adversity can impede her flight.

Believe

Give it in,
Let it go,
For this time believe what I show,
I am your shadow,
Not different from you,
Maybe few shades darker but I am the new you,
Untie that knot,
And believe in this thought,
Together we will create some stories untold.

Let us attain the uncharted paths,
and descry some unexplored roads,
Together let us pledge not to impede that
shining glow,
If you trust me, hold my hand,
In front of us, no gale can stand,
You connect in rarity with someone,
Don’t let it go in some doltish rationale,
Show that courage and take that plunge,
Behold the moment don’t let it expunge.

An Illusion

Lost in the palaver of her myriad thoughts,
Tarnishing  every dissuasion that suggests leaving you,
remain taciturn to listen to your voice,
Become a vagrant chasing an illusion called you.

I touch your shadow in the soot of the night,
Rummage memories to get your vivid sight,
feel your fragrance from the immemorial times,
Hold your scribbles with words that had rime.

I treasure you like relics from a past world,
Hope incandescent like plumes of love,
Your happiness matter most to me,
And I reel away entwine in my reverie’s swirl.
