Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Walls

The wall that we built in between

Still stands tall as ever and strong

I wonder what happens on

The other side of this wall

Does the sun shines bright there

While I admire the half bend moon

Won’t the drops of rain that falls

On the trees in your garden

Fall across the wall at least once by default

Won’t the wind that is scented

By the perfume of the Jasmine

Which blooms every night to wonder the star

Blows there too just like it blows here.

The wall that we’ve built in between

Still stands tall as ever and strong too

It is a weight to this Earth

But it is a much bigger weight in our hearts

That makes us strangers to each other’s

Eyes and shadows and footsteps

I wondered, from what is it that this wall is built?

It’s basic unit….

And I think

The material by which

This wall is made is not hate

For it takes a lot of love even to hate

These walls are therefore made of void,

Devoid of love!

Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Valley of trees

I forgot my soul in the valley of trees

While looking for birds which never

Nested in the same tree

Their colors and their songs enticed me

I misplaced my heart in the beats of their song

I tied my dreams around their feet

They flew high above the sky

The high altitude winds loosened the knots

And took away my dreams towards the south

Their light and mystic feathers captured my heart

And the feathers that fell from the sky

Disappeared among the leaves

Along with my love

My emotions migrated away while

Watching them leave

While I stayed in the same place rooted deep

And that’s how I also turned into a tree

In the valley of trees.

Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

In his arms

The confusions grew deeper and stronger

Unlocking the Pandora’s box

The darkness evolved, breaths shortened

The futile acts, the unfeasible ones

Came one by one in front of my eyes

And when sanity left the house of the mind,

With the last of my strength

I rested my head on his shoulders

Cried all night long and made no sound

No words escaped my tight sealed lips

He asked nothing, I said nothing

I just drenched his shirt in my sadness

Along with some salt all night long

He just simply sat there stroking my hair

Listening to my eyes in the darkness of silence

I felt safe in his arms

His eyes simply said everything there was to say

As I cried my darkness all night long

The Ray’s of gold wore dress of red

Veiled me in orange, heating my heart

He opened his eyes, hugged me tight

Kissed me twice and said

silently in my ears

With his love filled voice

“Good morning My Angel”

While I replied “I Love you Father”

Darkness still haunted at times

But I was always safe in his arms.

Personal Thoughts, Thought for Change, Thought for the day, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

At the crossroad – 2

At the crossroads where

Everything was blurry

I met a stranger

Who’s name I’ve heard of

But haven’t met yet

Who’s voice I’ve neglected several times

But this time it felt more deep and assertive

At the crossroad where

Confusion ruled my mind stronger than ever

Where questions echoed in my mind

What more? what next?

Which turn? Why turn?

My heart felt like

A butterfly inside a jar

In that very hour of unrest

That mellifluous voice

Which I’ve shut out

Hummed in my ears again

Where to turn this time?

I listened to the stranger’s ways

Which felt absurd to me at times

Absurd or not I took the turn

And it changed my life forever and ever

At the crossroads where

Everything was blurry

I met a stranger

Who helped me find my way

That stranger was me!

Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Tornado

He came like the wind

Soft and gentle

Making me wanting

To go up high

Making my heart

Flying in the sky

Leaving me bedazzled

And feeling light

Making me dance

Even in the night.

And he left

Like a tornado

With a mighty force

Shattering my world

To dust and ashes

Drawing me in and

Tearing me apart

To pieces and

Took some of those

Pieces along with him

That spiraling wind

Took my emotions with it

And now I am blank.

Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Presence

After a very long time of living

In the colors of unrest and peace

I finally heard my heart beat

Inside the deep sea of life

I tried to point my finger at the light

But my hands were hard and shaky

As I looked, at the magic

Of the shadows in the wall

As the moving wind teased

With the sun’s light

Making them dance on the floor

And on my face as well

I felt the breath in my nose,

the warmth in my hands

And realized they were real

For the very first time.

For the very first time

I felt the presence of me in me

After these long hard life

Years living in this planet

Now do I realize that I am alive.

Oppressed Voices

The music of your breath

Feels boisterous to my ears now

For they are tormenting me

Day by day, echoing

Incessantly in my ears . . . .

The rhyme that once

Feasted my eyes is now

Making them water in ice and blue

The startling paradoxes

Stare at me with a smirk in it’s face

The striking similes

Questions my sanity

Lost I am in the morals of your parables

They rain heavy in my conscience

Feeding my inner conflict

Suppressing my ideals and faith

Replacing my palaces of hope

With your own answers and robbing

Me of my mistakes, findings, learnings and reasoning

The music of your breath

Feels boisterous to my ears now

For they sing my verse

Which was not written by me!
