Trust your hands

No , not the self professed divine ,
which needs the myth of divine
to survive with selfishness ,
trust tour hands
to churn out the truly divine
and mind to savour it.

Like the color of mehendi

Consistency is like
the color of mehendi ,
a lot like love dipped in care ,
can be seen only when it is properly soaked in .

Remembering a "gift"

One of the best gifts
I gave to my child .....

" a fairy tale told
ever so softly
to put him to sleep ..."

hoping that an imprint of it would be replayed whenever needed ....


It has been a while now.....

It has been a while now
since I visited the rocks on the westend beach ,
it has been more than a while now
since I saw them dazzle in sunlight ,
sparkle with conversations
of friends , lovers , aquaintances ,
soulmates in bubbling youthfulness
or with mature silver streaks ,
holding hands ,
sitting together on the rocks ,
watching the golden Sun
kiss the waves
in an unhurried rhythm .....


The debate goes on .....

Looks like the mind and body are at variance ,
they have decided to take different positions of the on going debate ,
they have decided to look at different sides of the truth ,
they have given their hearts to different realities ,
now , the only question bothering them is
as to how they will live to be one forever ?
or are the differences only cosmetic ?
is it o.k. to feel differently like citizens in a true democracy ?
The debate goes on ......

I don't see limits

Not now ,
not today ,
not the day after ,
not here ,
not there ,
not me , not you ,
I don't see limits
when my heart is melting ...


In search of divine

Do we really need to see divine in mundane ?
Time has perhaps come when we need to create
with not just words ,
but with our hands , head and feet ,
divine out of all that we are left with ,
all around .....


Path to peace

The path to peace
is lined with wars ,
struggles ,
to achieve
a semblence of equality ,
trustworthiness ,
a feeling of
being human
without masks .

Laws of life

If I look ahead ,
move ahead ,
I am just obeying
the laws of life ,
if I leave behind
the burdens
that I cannot bear
I am being
honest with life ,
if I follow
my own sense
of right and wrong
it just means
I have a conscience ,
my first accountability
is to my own self ,
a truth as clear
as beautiful
as a freshly formed
crystal lattice
the light
as brightly
as it can .


Like one of the three Magi ......

Increasingly I feel
as light hearted as one of the three Magi ,
finding the other two will itself be exciting ,
there are signs
but I am most excited about my own discoveries ,
a new vibration everyday ,
a new arch everyother day ,
a new bountiful slice of life everyday
under the star filled sky ,
an endless journey
that does not look back .

And to stay there .....

O to be back ,
to return ,
to the simplicity ,
to the joy ,
to the love
that life really is
and to stay there
forever ......

The view is full
of unspoken beauty ,
green silence spreads
as far as the mind can see ,
still an emptiness
a slow , searing and haunting
emptiness seeps
like the scent
of a full blossomed
white lily .

Yet another Ocean

Will I ever have the words
to say what it is
to be with you , the Ocean ?
Watching the waves swing ,
sparkle . play
with the wind
and the sky ,
the sheer joy
of being with you
draws out a song ,
so many songs
breaking ,
forming ,
yet another ocean .

Distant , drifting

A boat
distant and drifting ,
through the
threading drizzles ,
sound steadies
trickle of the shower ,
a slow fading ......
only blue
vast , full blue ........

A limit without limit

A long semi-circular , almost invisible line ,
perhaps unreal ,
where the ocean merges with the skyline ,
or appears to ,
a measure of the distance our hearts can reach
when free ,
totally free to fly with the winds
that gently caress the surface ripples .

A question

The branches , the leaves
dance in ecstasy .
Was it them
or the wild west wind ?


Thursday, July 3, 2008


Today merges into yesterday
reality disolves into unreal
here we are
holding the transition close
holding each other close
trying to make sense of it all
ushering in a now ,
a dawn , a life still being made .

Color of Sun

What is the color of Sun ?
You will know only when
you look at the fields in full bloom
swaying in the wind without a care
on a bright sunny afternoon .
