Watery Wanderers

Lonely wanderers, wandering away;

Here and there, right and left they sway.

Nothing to keep them company;

Only each other, they accompany.

From far away, they look small;

You can reach them if you’re sky tall.

But in reality they are large;

Some large and some small.

Watery wanderers, give us rain;

Free us from the summer’s pain.

Thanks to thee, thanks to thee;

From heat, due to you, we are free.

Don’t just wander away, stay;

Tell us, why do you go away?

Why, oh why don’t you stay?

Say something, something you must say.

Lonely wanderers, wandering away;

Here and there, right and left they sway.

Nothing to keep them company;

Only each other, they accompany.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalaam

Just another fleeting soul;

wandered away last night;

nobody believing it, nobody accepting it;

yet death is a bitter truth;

everyone has to taste it;.

Though he has gone high into the sky;

to entertain the stars and the moon;

his memory will forever prevail on this land;

The Earth of Sorrow and Death.

Winter – SnowFall

Some large & some small;

Snow flakes, down they fall.

Blinded but awed by the sight;

You enjoy but shiver with all your might.

Clouds of cotton fall down:

Sky takes the colour brown.

Remember  the superstition, you’re lucky if:

On you, the 1st flake falls down.

But it is beauty you will find;

Nature has given it, it’s so kind.

Enjoy it & thank nature:

For providing it, he’s so kind.

Some large & some small;

Snow flakes, down they fall.

Blinded but awed by the sight;

You enjoy but shiver with all your might.

The Most Memorable Day of My Life

The most memorable day of my life;

Was when my blood pressure went high.

I lost my way in the puzzling streets;

And stood there wondering about my bad deeds.

No one can tell the panic I felt;

As all body parts started to melt.

I stood there puzzled and alone;

I didn’t even have a mobile phone.

I peddled & peddled, with my heart thumping;

I peddled to find something relieving and helping.

I started to get angry on myself;
for trying unknown streets without any help.

After an hour, I heard a motor’s roar;

To my relief, I’d found a main road.

It was a real adventure for me;

To get lost in my huge city.

Shall You Marvel – Sonnet No.2

Shall you marvel when you see;

tiny pointed beams in the night sky.

Shall you believe in what made that tree;

has and holds aloft the white sky.

Shall you show me all your power;

as you try to outlive the consistent time.

Or shall you believe in the Supreme Power;

who continues to control this powerful rhyme.

Shall you rather match marbles and monuments;

to the serene & simple valleys of green and white;

than believe in the moral of these contents;

where all the serenity of nature you’ve seen.

Impalpable is the Supremacy of Nature to the brain;

so find peace in the heavens, the Earth & the rain.

The Truth

We were strangers when we met three years ago;

we were friends when we parted after a week.

We were friends when we met again;

I was influenced by my friend’s voice a few days after.

My friend told me I was the best writer;

I did not believe my friend was speaking with deepest feelings

I was doodling when I wrote four lines and gave it to my friend;

and forgot that those lines existed a few days after.

I understood how much they liked my art;

when I saw a paper in my friend’s hands.

Unfolding it, I saw the same four lines;

which I had doodled a few weeks ago.

Those lines developed only to three stanzas;

and I dedicated it to my friend only.

Parchments and art may one day be gone;

but I am happy that I have a friend who will always stand by my side.

In a Valley’s Heart

Deep down in a valley’s heart;

Who knows what lies?

Is it some beautiful lake?

Or a large ground where snow flies?

Whether the valley of Scotland;

Or the valley of Kashmir;

It’s only beauty you will find:

Brooks with small fishes & trees of Gir.

The Dal Lake and the Gulmarg;

Travelling through Kashmir you see.

Different lakes and ice far away;

Spiralling through Nainital you see.

This is what lies in a valley’s heart;

And who knows what lies?

Is it some beautiful lake?

Or a large ground where snow flies?

Deep down in a valley’s heart;

Who knows what lies?

Is it some beautiful lake?

Or a large ground where snow flies?
