Getting used to.


Getting used to the Sun rising,
from behind buildings, instead of mountains.
Getting used to the Moonshine,
having to compete with the bright lights.

Learning to like the concrete jungles,
Instead of the hills and lakes.
Learning to love the patch of green,
amongst the high-rises, instead of endless span of trees.

Adapting to breathe in air, less clean,
than the one we took for granted.
Adapting to survive life and its surprises,
learning, getting used to, as each day passes.

Gemstones.

Fireflies of sunshine shimmering atop hills of Jade.
Or are they gentle Emerald waves, in which the boats swayed.

Turquoise of sky spreading blue in the ocean,
Sapphire waves reflecting, hide and seek in motion.

If only the arch were a ring and water could be carved.
What a brilliant gemstone ring nature could have served.

Temporary ripples.

Sometimes, the pain gets excruciating, 
emptying the lungs off all the air, 
leaving us gasping for survival.

The heart ache so acute,
that it renders the body invalid,
crawling to get through the days.

Hope is lost, 
happiness becomes just a word, 
the world seems to be like a sinking ship. 

But, it's just a phase, rest assured,

You will breathe again,
you will get up and walk again,
you will swim to the shore, in one piece.

For life is life, 

It flows, like a river,
nothing is permanent or stagnant,
be it pain or pleasure.

Acceptance

Sometimes the senses are numbed,
by the forces of the unseen.
The silence, a defence,
against the loudness of thoughts within.

The world  thrown out temporarily,
from the maze of the brain.
The people, shut out,
to keep the  pounding heart sane.

Only the grace of acceptance,
paves the path for survival.
In the forest of doubts and distrust,
for lost faith's revival.

After the Sundown

Road trip



The immediate lack of energy, somberness and loneliness of the evening, right after the Sun bids goodbye...

.
...being made up by the energy and brightness exuding from the man made  strings of vibrant stars.

Sundown

Road trip

        The Sun calls for attention like a sparkling gemstone in a ring.



 Far away from the madding crowd, the Sun sets behind the          mountains, promising another part of the world a beautiful new day.

Colony of Bats



Looked up the tree and thought " they" were Weaverbird nests but then one of them stretched it's wings.

Spring




 

 After the cold and chill of winters, can feel Spring approaching,           silently, slowly.

Words-2





Actions define a person but words are...

like  a soothing balm on open wounds,
like a strong string that binds and holds.

Like a comforting blanket to keep us warm,
like a finger caressing a face to make one calm.

Like an embrace which holds you tight,
like the lamp which shows you the light.

Like the most beautiful painting ever painted,
like the most unforgettable dream ever dreamt.

They can uplift, they can depress,
they can make you ecstatic no less.

They can drive you crazy with anger,
 Or make your emotions stay in a dangle.

They can break you, make you and lose all tact.
Words are just words but they entice us to react.

The Ghost Town





Nature's beauty surplus,
houses unfinished.
Water in abundance,
unoccupied homes with dust.

Selfishly

Miss you, like I would miss myself,
 if I stopped looking into the mirror.

Hate you, like I would hate myself,
if I was remorseless after being wrong.

Feel guilty, like was neglecting myself,
if I don't think about you.

Yes! it hurts to feel that way,
but makes me feel alive too.

For love you, like I love myself,
selfishly, unconditionally, unapologetically.
