Its Sky, sit

Sometimes

I wish I could just sit

‘Really,’ said Sky

hovering by

he pulled a cloud

fluffed it a bit

set it right

and said

‘here, sit now and

you may also ride’

he winked

to her smile

and she blushed.

Ps:sky time

And the blue god said

I made you at the first of dawn

picking shades of sun to clothe you

from black, to deep blue, to light, to golden

I chose every tender shade to color you

I breathed wind into your chest

and carved your ears from the

music of the birds

I borrowed from the sky those eyes you behold

to enable you to see me, and the rest of you

I molded you in the fire of desire

dried you in the longing for love

enabled in you the power to reign

a mind to devise

methods to scale thoughts

reach out to spirits abound

I kissed you on your lips

and set you afloat

in the river of life for you to thrive

sometimes be thrashed, tossed

battered and bruised

I knew you would survive

knowing how well I made

each breast of yours in loving care

your slender neck and eyes so bright

your waist sometimes tiny, sometimes not

your hips to bring forth life

your legs to carry your sweet love around

I knew you will falter but never fail

you will doubt but never give up

you will love and be loved

giving and receiving love, joy ,wisdom and pleasure

in equal measure

I knew you, my beloved

my heart’s content

my bliss

when you reach your journey’s end

your sparkling soul will azure shine

and again you be mine .

ചിന്ത

ഒരുപാടു താലോലിച്ചു
വളർത്തിയ
ഒരു ചിന്തയാണ്

ഇന്ന് അതെന്നെ തന്നെ കാർന്നു
തിന്നുന്നു
എന്റെ അസ്തിത്വം
അതിന്റെ പിടിമുറിയിൽ

ഞെരിന്നമർന്നിരിക്കുന്നു
ഒന്ന് ശ്വാസം വിടാൻ എനിക്ക്
അനുവാദം വേണമത്രേ

അയാൾ

കൊച്ചു കൊച്ചു
അഭിപ്രായങ്ങൾ
മെല്ലെ മെല്ലെ
പുകച്ചും ഓമനിച്ചും
അയാൾ വളർത്തുകയായിരുന്നു
അതോ മറിച്ചോ?

കൊച്ചു കൊച്ചു ചിന്തകൾ
വലിയ വലിയ ചിലന്തി വലകൾ
ആയതു അയാൾ അറിഞ്ഞില്ല
കാലചക്രം തിരിഞ്ഞുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കെ
തന്ടെ ചിന്തകളുടെ
പിടിയിൽ താൻ ഞെരിയുന്നുണ്ടെന്നു
അയാൾ അറിഞ്ഞിരിക്കുമോ?

Bidibid

Sky she said

if only you stopped

peeping into my dreams

waking up and going to sleep with me

allowing me to search anew and find anew

I would know for sure that this is not what it is

I would know know to reroute, remap, recenter

I would know that times are not of ours

and go searching a rainbow asunder

but tell me she said with a sigh

If you hold the strings so tight

if you shape thoughts so far, so long

if you color every passing fantasy so bright

the morning coffees and the evening walks

the leisure laughter and the rush of emotions

how will I

how can I

she sat down nodding to herself.

Alright, she thought she heard.

PS: good times roll in.Talk about bloopers!!!

Hope

Hope stood at the gate

waiting for the sign

when tears dried

smiles shined

she walked in

with a breeze

bringing with her

presents galore

‘now it’s time for a selfie’

she said amidst cheers

the sun was shy

still he popped in from a far

that was after corona

when good times rolled in

giggling, laughing

ROFL all the way!

PS: gatum padiyyil oru hope!

चाय और चर्चा

सूनी सी
इन शब्दों में
क्या बात कर पाऊँगी मैं


जब सोच ही है
समज के परे
कैसे कर पाऊँगी मैं
इन सुनी सी शब्दों में
अपनी दिल कि बात


और फिर
कह भी दूँ तो,दोस्त
तुम समज न पाओगे
मन कि गहराईयों को
किसने नापा है अब तक

छोड़ दो, चलो, चाय तो पी लो

Earth woman

Being born of the skies

raised by the earth

fragranced by the winds

pregnant with monsoon raindrops

hued bright by blossoms

she refused

to be a mere signboard

weather beaten, broken, twisted and torn

holding up signs to

others dreams and dwellings

their maps, their routes

some non existent

some inconsequential

some too contrived to be real

some too small for her

she preferred to instead

leave sign posts

for others to find

‘catch me’, she said

‘if you can

love me ,if you can

just as I am

else forget me forever’.

Thus, she spake, the woman of earth.
