ALL THAT WONDER

Poised and puffy mountains
Stand as witness
For the pensive sky
When fluffy reeds
Dance with starlit night.

Snow covered trees
Stand excited
Pushing away
The gentle wind
Ruffling wily leaves
As if tickling numb bodies
Of coy mistresses
While rocks wear white apron
Gleaming
With the moon light.

Caravans move headlong
And dry leaves carried by robins
Fall onto the silvery ponds
Where slithering fish are amazed
To make upsurge glide.

There in the bluish wave
The moon is wonder- lost
To see beetle and grasshopper
Covered under luscious grass
Waiting for balmy dawn.

In the distant house
A pregnant lass
Strolling over silent yard
Watches the sky
And caresses her abdomen
Counting her menstruation cycle.

All there is wonder
Like dew drops
Trickling from the mysterious sky
Towards the coy earth!

LIVE THIS WAY

Live on your own
lest they will tear you
and make you an effigy
who just stands
without gestures!

They would rob you—
preaching
gullible isms
that you do not intend to know
which play fiddle
with your emotions
confining you to cage!

If you heed
they will ask you
to chant slogans
of mercurial fates
and you will be soon capsized
as if you are on the boat
of caste, religion, and color.

Have you ever known
you have lived under their
tutelage
forgetting your soothing heart
that speak nothing
but love and harmony?

I am also pretty sure:
you have made them monitors
and followed their diction
of masquerading fallacy
and salute them
as your master of ceremony.

I can say nothing
but share this little:
Try to live like you
caressing
the coy grass
and thank
the numb horizons
and aspire
the greatness
of the serene sky
which spread
divine rays
to soothe the heart
of this benevolent universe !
