THE NEW YEAR
giving an all new vision to the world
and lo keeps flowing like an incessant stream
of sweet redolence!
She deludes the man I dreamed of
with sacred ablutions
and walks him through the paths of prosperity...
and makes him to rise again
and raise in his voice
new tones of hope!
Let us become milestones on the paths
we tread and keep walking with hope...
crossing the Autumns
and reach at last the oceans of love,
where let us discard
the weared down old sin-soiled bodies
and Wear new bodies of pure love
and invite sweet and aloud a new divine world!
Always those bursting out travails
of live become my burning muse.
With nectars sipped out of poesy
I try to baptise these lives.
Yes...I learnt from my wise mother,
how to console the woebegone
and my father taught me
how to root my unbending spine
deep into the soil of pain to stand tall in the life!
I am not just a poet with trumpet in hand...
but a warrior of life-battle
who kissed with ardour the lips
of troubled world.
I can't knot myself with the grizzled definition of life.
I can't shake hands with those
inexplicable estrangements I behold around...
I can't tete-a-tete with the muted humaneness...
Well. I start my prayers
before the temple with broken sculptures...
vivify the soul-statues with my poesy ambrosial
and holding an eternal torch of wisdom in hand
I go round awakening the world.
An Odyssey along the Estuary
The river is calling me
painting me with the memories
of body and soul,
walking me in to the human streams,
dipping me pulling me out
and rejuvenating me again and again...
under the raising and falling wave memories..
it's all to bestow her benisons on me ..!
At the estuaries
where the nascent days
meet the incipient nights
and old nights melts into the young day breaks
while dipping in to the river ,
not to break in to pieces
I besmeared my self
with the balsam of historical aphorisms
and I sprouted again like the dawning Sun..!
as long as river flows
this talking me
and listening thee
will live..yeah sure live
Yeah.. I have the save feeling
at this blissful estuary,
bringing back the nostalgia
of walking behind my mother
holding tightly her well ironed hand loom sari...!!
