Nudging Memories

...write not verses
on
trees
clouds and skies
birds and wings
eyes and cries
smiles and laughs
me
dad...

...of what use
will they be
when you won't be around
and
none of these would sing
but
nudge memories of you...

untitled pains...

...he kept on preaching
'time heals'
but his arrogance
hardly could hide
equated instalments
of
piercing tortures
he
bestowed on unwanted loved ones...

Stolen Kiss

...on a thick monsoon night
they both
hug
cuddle
do not kiss
listen favorite
humming in distant paddy
chew pinch of raw tobacco
have a spin
and
think of planting one on each other
just then
a thin shower steals her tender one...

On rain and memories...



...rain walks in
with
a cool mix of metered showers
spells -
a magical lull
a warm effortless lug
into
lubricating memorable times...

Sheer Loneliness...

...almost midnight
and a lonely owl
flying through cloudy skies
manages to swoop
on a low height street lamp
probes dark crevices on walls
lurks
hoots
finds nothing
hoots again
long
waits movement of preys
a curious mortal
watches leads
silences goosebumps
recalls companion nights
wipes lachrymal discharge
sitting under
a noisy wall-mounted fan
running on speed one...

On moving times...

...they never change
even a bit
despite moving times
all year round
flutter
pick
sing
fly
at dawns and dusks
while
there's a constant change
in their two legged admirers
at all times
calling it evolution...

On unequalled pleasure...

...he found
unequalled pleasure
in
polishing shoes of a child,
than buffing-up
his
pitted
and
buckled ones...
