Morning Fantasies

Coz the pain

didn’t stick to me

nor the hurt

nor the anger

nor the wrath

what stayed with me

is a smile bright and clear

a few hugs here

a few kisses there

of hopes and dreams

of the sky divine

I walk then free

of any guilt

I walk then free

of any hurt

in my hands

I hold my destiny

to turn it here

and to mold it there

coz my best is here

in today I find

a freedom dear

in the now

brightness everywhere

this little caesura

don’t take it hard

its just a break

to stretch my limbs

to soothe my nerves

sing some notes

dance a bit

spread some cheer

hold some dear

so be around

coz much is ahead

you and me

are a pair divine

with sky in between

we will rock the stars

go on be yourself

and then we shall

celebrate our togetherness

we shall meet you and I

in times sphere

now or never

though in our hearts

I am sure we meet

coz how else does

fragrance flow

dreams float

hopes sail

so hold on love

coz we got to meet

there is a time

for everything

and there is a time

for love in life

in my life

and in my space

coz more than ever

I am so sure

of love walking to me

slouching its way to Bethlehem

not some fierce monster

not the second coming

but the gentle love caring and so sure

walking to my present

to celebrate each other

to make a home

to hold a heart

to steer the ship anew

coz you gift me

a moment in time

and then its eternity.

PS: Post listening to Dona Winner’s A moment in time!

oF GOING SLOW

OF GOING SLOW

Stop, ponder, watch, observe and then move

and when you move, go slow, one step leading to the next

thus you build what is love , that is long lasting

for long have we worshipped at the altar of speed

coz speedy recovery to speed dating

to fast food to fast fat loss

let’s now try ,you and me together

the beauty in still deep thoughts

moments that stand for long and forget to rush

experiences that stay engraved in the heart

and love, most of all in small significant moments

in small deeds of a hand made gift or a loving touch

or just sitting by the fireside watching the flames crackling

under the dark sky who feeling proud brings out shiny stars

to watch us over from above and help build memories

a few frogs croaking, crickets chattering, a distant horn

just the loved ones one or more in company of peace

sipping sparkling clean liquids

munching slow food

where time stops to watch

wondering if this is life, why would I hurry?

PS: Love being slow and steady

Of writing

I hear a thought

I see a few lines forming

as if writing in the air

my heart is entranced

in the magic of the words

I have to sit down

I just have no other go

the words flow

the lines flow

guiding me from

within and without

forming themselves

on to a blank page

filling it with what is beyond me

like one entrusted with a secret

to be spilled out in parts

I am moved to the call of the word

She rules, I obey

that which writes itself is then writing.

Sky in Me

I ask the sky to sit

lean on my shoulder

and allow me to do the same

I ask him to shine a few stars for me

‘no one has done that for me ever’

He turns to me quizzically nodding his head

I ask him to bring a rainbow now and make me bright

He is quiet listening to my pleadings

Looking ahead his wide deep forehead furrowed

His nostrils wrinkled as if he is about to sneeze

He lifts his hand to touch my chin

He picks a Sun drop and lets it sit on my palm

He fluffs a cloud and makes it dance for me

He lets me lean to listen to the song of his soul

Deep deep murmurings of every life form

Mixed in equal portions of love, pain and ecstasy

He allows me a glance into his heart

I see the life forms in a surreal dance of joy

Myriad colours rushing to fit into life forms

the birds, the flowers, the monkeys and the man

He lets me read his lips

I hear his words of deep love that charge the life forms

who turn to his voice, raise their heads and listen intently

He allows me to look deep into his eyes

And I see love, deep deep respect for life forms

I see a glimpse of me and am beyond thrilled

He fits his formlessness into my soul

‘now I am here’, he says, ‘for ever’

And I am smiling again.

Ps: Sky in me

Driving a car called desire

There she goes

my mama dear

driving a car called desire

honking it here

and honking it there

taking a swift turn here and there

bumping into places

sometimes into faces

mama goes fast

mama goes slow

there she goes my mama dear

driving a car called desire

you wanna greet her

say hello, hello

say hi, hi

coz you never know

if she would stop

or just say goodbye

there she goes my mama dear

driving a car called desire

hop in if you feel

stop her if you need

coz she is racing past time

got a few brakes to break

a few walls to crash

too much on her plate

there she goes my mama dear

driving a car called desire.

Ps: Lyric maybe!

SKy

Sit

I told sky

who was wandering by

hold, smile, clasp even

he smiled and shrugged

you see, limitless as I am

my time is limited

I wipe the tears

turn on the sun

and shine the moon

to her my lover, the earth

I give my everything

I hold, caress and comfort her

yes, I know you and have noticed you

your thoughts and your yearnings I hear

trust me when I say, I am there for you

and he vanished azure

Ps: reaching out to sky

നടത്തം

ചാഞ്ഞിരുന്ന കോലായി
ഉമ്മറത്തോടു പറഞ്ഞു
എത്ര കാലമായി ഒന്ന് നടു നിവർത്തിയിട്ടു

ക്ഷീണിച്ച കൈയ്യാല
ആളനക്കം ഇല്ലാത്തതിന്റെ ദുഃഖം
നീണ്ട നെടുവീർപ്പുകളിൽ ഒതുക്കി

തളത്തിൽ കെട്ടി നിന്ന കുട്ടികാലം
പല്ലിയുടെ ചിലമ്പലിലും
വണ്ടിന്റെ മൂലക്കത്തിലും
തവളകളുടെ പേക്രോം പേക്രോം
കരച്ചിലിലും ഓർമകൾ ചികഞ്ഞു നോക്കി

ചുട്ടെടുത്തു പപ്പടത്തിന്റെ
പൊടുപൊടുന്നന്നെയുള്ള പൊടിക്കലും
ടപ് ടപ് എന്ന എണ്ണയുടെ പൊട്ടിത്തെറിക്കലും
കുക്കറിന്റെ ചീറ്റലും
സ്റ്റോവിന്റെ അട്ടഹാസവും
വിറക്കിന്റെ മൂളക്കവും
അടുക്കള ഓർത്തെടുത്തു

ഹാവ് അയ്യോ വയ്യ
എവിടെ നിന്നോ ചില മര്മരങ്ങൾ

പ്രായം കൂടിയ ഗോവണി
ഊരാൻ തയ്യാറായ പല്ലു പോലെ ആടി കളിച്ചു

കാല് തെറ്റി വീണ കുട്ടിയെ
എടുത്തമ്മ പറഞ്ഞു
എങ്ങോട്ടു നോക്കിട്ട നിന്റെ നടത്തം.

Sky Vision

sitting at the head of the bed

her back turned to me

sits she, the sky

holding the endless in her palm

her eyes deep deep brown

her hair flowing

a few strands falling across my face

I try to look ahead

she shows me but a glimpse

and blocks a whole lot of my vision

that I think I know

but I know I know not

she has been a puzzle

a dream and a vision

of a life of love and hope

coz what is life

if you know everything

PS: Now is everything

Ping pong

As certain as it seems to get

as knotted it remains as before

life’s yearnings and its many puzzles

push me hither, thither and everywhere

I hang on to deep feelings of trust

sometimes of distrust and doubt

rising out of the pit of my stomach

saying, no, not any more

but the yes, is rare and far in between

as if unsure of the authority of a ‘ yes’

but

why are ‘no’s’ becoming easier than the ‘yes’?

PS: Hither and thither we go
