Dark Lane

I walk in a lonely

dark lane,

I fear the night

Cicadas tease me

with their low hiss.

My home is still far away,

I hit a stone

and my heart freezes

at the sharp sound.

I look around

and fear turns into wonder

as a bud blossoms

into a purple flower.

Bees swarm

around the new-born flower

and I find a place

in a rusty bench.

I don’t want to move

I don’t want to go home

I swap my fear

for joy and wonder,

glued to the mesmerizing

beauty of the night

Gaze and Marvel

What stronger feeling

could surpass

the momentary amazement

when you look

at the soft colors

in their dainty glory?

 

Would you perhaps

gaze, marvel

and feel gratified

that you belong to

the same world

that they do?

 

Watch a bee trying

to find a gap between

the two beauties and struggling

to decide on his best partner

Funeral Flowers

I was born to be a funeral flower

to be placed on wreaths

I lose my sparkle to the tearful faces

and my fragrance to lifeless forms

I am a part of the environment,

the face of grief

 

The bridal flowers pity me,

and I tell them,

“You are just an addition to the joy

But I am a source of comfort

I am not here to allure

or be admired

I am here to honor

The beings gone to the other world

I am the sole spark of life

in countless graves.”

Color and Fragrance

The trees welcome you

with different shades of Green,

Grey, Orange and bright Yellow

rivalling flowers to display their beauty

They radiate a unique fragrance

of leaves, adjoining flowers

and the thick roots

Take a deep breath

fill yourself with this enticing fragrance

on your way to the destination,

store it deep in your heart

and hold it secure

till you visit the next time

The Country in Far East

There is a country on the Far East

much favoured by every beauty of nature

A land of splendid hills

Here the flowers are not plucked

and the roads are not soiled

There is unlimited freedom

with different people united

 

Voices are soft

and everybody is heard

Animals speak here –

Dogs in a pleasing voice,

Horses commanding

Cats proud

and the squirrels in a melting tone

 

No arrogance and abuse

in the countless networking sites

Acceptance and equality all around

with opportunities in abundance

The Distant Land

 

I look forward to the day

I would migrate

to a land far away

full of lush trees

fleshy fruits and inviting flowers

 

I know the route by heart

to the distant land

I would pass by the sandalwood trees,

countless palm trees and finally

reach my sought-after destination

I would perch on the same old oak tree,

not caring for the new ones

I would sit on a new leaf everyday,

teasing the pink flowers

and savouring the fruits ready to fall

 

I am ready to migrate

to that land

of my dreams
