writers who don’t write, Lovers who don’t love

Writing has been like love

she spent a lifetime

dreaming about love

so did she about writing

sometimes in her dreams

they intermixed and danced

like ‘theyyam’ in a trance of thoughts

like love itself where it is a task to find a lover

of heart and kind, as good as you think he should be

so it is with writing to find a page and fill it with thoughts

the dancing pen coursing through and noting ideas, dreams and aspiration

the sweat and blood of living, the pain of conception and the inability to reproduce

of long traumatic gestation that bends the heart with weight

the muse in either is case being vamoose

sandwiched amidst hopes, expectations and soar realities

throbs a dull ache that makes living plausible

whiffs of love, songs of yonder, tales of the worlds beyond

are in waiting

but not too long, not too long.

By the sea of life

Walk the life

take the step

dream a bit

and look around

see the love

see the hate

write the stuff

and move ahead

in your dreams

the skies smile

the rainbows dance

blossoms bloom

so walk ahead

but stop a bit

hold a hand

turn around

tell a tale

hear them speak

touch them gentle

life speaks to you

the stories come singing

the truth of life

the pain of living

so hold a hand

touch a heart

walk a bit

and rest by the sea

when the waves dance to you

think your thoughts

cleanse your heart

and move ahead.

and move ahead.

Such be life

Such be living.

Have you been around?

Have you heard my smiles

have you smelt my tears

have you lent a hand

have you been around?

Have you been my joy

have you spent your time

have you stood by myside

have you been around?

have you walked the walk

have you touched the ground

have you come for love

have you felt a thought

have you been around?

have you read my dreams

have you held my arms

have you shared your pain

have you been around?

have you leaned to whisper

have you grown to love

have you been so giving

have you been around?

have you ever asked

have you ever spoken

have you ever stopped

have you ever turned to me

have you been around?

have you watched my wishes

have you seen it rain

have you thought of staying

have you been around?

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!

Go on

Go on

be another day

to another sun far away

go on

be the clouds

to another dream

in a heart so pure

be the color

of a rainbow far

be thou the string

the stairs

the path

be who you are

be true

go on

be the sky for another bird

be the waters for another flow

go on

be who you are

be true

be you mmmm……
