A Haiku Of Joy

On 26 March 2019, my name appeared in a newspaper for the third time, thanks to Mayank Austen Soofi! See the pic above.

I was completely swept off my feet when I saw the Delhiwala column of the Hindustan Times that day!

While sharing the news with my friends and well-wishers, I surprised myself by using a combination of words that was actually a Haiku!

This was what I wrote.

“My youngest poem Yellow Semals

Flew out of its nest today.

It’s in Hindustan Times, Delhi, today.”

I call this a Haiku of Joy….

Yellow Semals, A Poem

Here is the link to my latest poem ‘Yellow Semals.’

It was inspired from an earlier blog post with the same name.

Official Bougainvilleas

I call them official bougainvilleas because they live and breathe inside the office premises. Their blazing, bright colors add soul, poetry, innocence, and freshness to their surroundings and inspire us to continue blooming; to be happy and creative in spite of the oppressive work life in the private sector and its inevitable politics…

These words are now part of a poem…Read it here…https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/official-bougainvilleas/?m=0

Stones And Flowers

Nothing can be as fickle, treacherous

As Life.

Love it or hate it,

Take it or leave it,

Life will remain life.

Sometimes it hurls stones

On your path,

And sometimes it throws

Flowers on your feet.

But you just have to keep plodding on.

Because flowers and stones are but

Passing illusions.

As ephemeral as the fog,

As short-lived as the images of a kaleidoscope.

A Prayer In Vain

With a bent head,

And a humble soul,

I pray to thee,

Oh, God Almighty,

Please let me be,

If only for a little while more,

Stop me

From joining the dead leaves,

The relentless,

Merciless

Cycle of life and death…
