Dreamy Moon

Eyes shut sleep takes over,

Still holding on to be awake,

No sound around,

Lights off,

Only the moonlit night sinks in,

I immediately fall asleep a feeling I cannot express….

March Ahead

They marched towards their home,

In pairs of two’s in a long straight line,

Searching for food crumbs along the way,

Disciplined and strict are they,

Hardworking with no time to stop,

They gather heavy loads and each of them plays a part,

Its a difficult job they have,

Forming colonies that range in size,

Their ability to modify habitats, tap resources, and defend themselves

Makes them unique and one of a kind…

Forever Gone

The news arrived followed with tears in her eyes,

She was gasping for breath,

His voice was echoing in her ears,

She had spoken to him a day before,

Anxious to get back to his home,

To be greeted by his wife and child,

She sobbed and was still as a rock,

Couldn’t eat or sleep,

Her hands trembled and her body was in pain,

She had not moved an inch in vain,

Her eyes swollen of not having slept,

The person closest to her had gone,

Never to return again….

Changing Times

When I sit to gather my thoughts,

Some distractions block my thoughts,

The phone rings continuously,

Remembering those childhood days,

When a rock was my playing space,

No technology just simple play,

Getting hands dirty in the mud,

Playing outside all day,

But now things have changed,

Children play indoors with their phones,

Tablets with various games,

The childhood memories will always stay with me,

I wonder what the next generation will say,

Will they will have any memories to share…

Random Thought – Perception

“Its the perception of certain things that differentiates one person from the other,

For one gold is precious for the other relationships matter,

All five fingers are not the same and so how we perceive things varies as well”

Dream On….

It started with dreaming of butterflies, rainbows and candies,

Then it moved to more things like cycle, the fair, the merry-go rounds and the coasters,

Then it started to feel odd to go to those places,

Friends became closer and hours were spent with them,

Selfies being clicked everywhere,

Then there was that anxiety to go to college,

Dreams of being the most popular one,

Trying to fit in with those ,

Then came those difficult to crack interviews,

Many hours of mock practice interviews,

The dream of getting a good job and becoming independent,

Our dreams have changed as we moved from every stage,

But our will power has remained the same

A New Self

Her instincts told her she was right,

Had she listened to others she would have lost her path,

But she stuck to it till the end,

It was her life and her decision,

She had to do what she had to do,

She stepped out in the open,

Freedom was just a step away,

She broke from the chains of misery,

And life was welcoming her with open arms,

She had risen above,

Her ambitions and desires were to come true,

A “New Self” was born…..

A Pillar of Strength- Happy Father’s Day

You were always there for me whenever I needed you,

I have shared my beliefs and thoughts with you,

Our opinions clashed at times,

But we still have an unbreakable bond,

With whom I share my secrets with,

My idol to whom I look up for strength during those stressful times,

You always know what is right for me,

Lot of memories and good times we have shared,

You can do anything for your family,

For the caring and loving person you are,

You mean the world to me,

Happy Father’s Day !
