Walked Without Fear •••
 
Between the dates of the month
or the days in the calendar
On the wheels of time, I dared to walk without fear
Neither I questioned nor I cared to know
 
In my busy moments or in dark lonely days
The oars of hope move back and forth and
sways at par with the cadence of your call
To all your dismaying attitude , I aimlessly bow
 
Hope , you remove the illusion awhile
And stop sailing it away with ungentle wind
Now, the birds of the morning doesn’t not even sing
Making me restless with my heart acutely throbbing.
 
It makes me feel
I have no option to play
And better I wipe you from memory for good
I opt to say
 
Believe me ,
A dew_washed autumn is lost in a mangrove in tangles
As the gaiety of love silent in your liplock shackles
 
Wish that spread wings and flutter in the wind
Beyond my eyes swing
And these illusions kept behind the screen
In the silence of dusk ever cheering.
 
 
A trusted veneration…
 
A tiresome confluence
Of riverful thirst and boiling desire
Made her to rest eyes closed in despair.
She continues to be in a carefree sleep.
Please allow her to keep on minus a peep.
 
Unlike a storm stricken dale
She has confined to her pains
In her dolorous wail.
 
Floating over the murmurs
Of torments and convulsions
She looks for a stray of Hope
towards tranquilled faith
In the midst of a trusted veneration.
 
Please don’t wake her up
Wish she continues in her sleeps
That she had a beautiful soul and a heart
Was blowing from her lips.
 
 
North Wind
 
Her frosty fingertips caressed them
With the winkling of an eye
they shed leaves
Under the current of a breeze
 
Their graves apparently waited for them
With extended arms to embrace
Murmuring a series of ethical songs
Of truth and salvation
While cuddling them in motherly manner
With the silky touch of solace.
While entering the grave
They yelled
 
Oh Dear!
Please remember
Though the sun sets in the evening
Yet rises again, the next morning
And who is destined to leave you now
Possibly returns the next moment
Wait with patience for the next spring
We will return with valour
To live in your company for ever.
