The Barren Lands

In the desert in the vast sand dunes and empty landscape,

With no rain the heat never ceases thereby hurting the feet,

For miles and miles nowhere to rest and only warm sandy breeze,

Beneath the blazing sun the cactus flowers bloom,

The trees are barren,

High up in the sky I see hawks circling nearby,

Trying to find my way through with no water and no food,

Long barren stretches all the way with no sign of any life,

Lost in a desert I see a tree is on the bank of a pond of water,

I quickly run towards it but it seems to be moving further away,

Then I realize it is a mirage that I see on this warm sunny day,

Sand storms begin to arise,

As a steady wind begins to blow,

Fine sand lying on the ground begin to vibrate,

Unable to take the heat anymore I fall down and faint,

When I wake up,

I find myself in an old run-down place,

I open my eyes and thank my stars for being safe,

And decide to never get lost in the barren lands again.

The Creative Mind

The mind can travel anywhere to any place,

Create stories and experience life in a different way,

Build over places visited in reality and dreams,

Create our own colorful world fill it with imagination and life,

Be any season we can create spring,

The mystery and the curiosity to venture to the unknown,

When imagination and creativity get together a writer is born..

The Prayer of a Tree

We were many some years ago,

Now we are only a few,

Weird sounds huge monsters like,

Crossed our path and removed everything in sight,

Let us live and let us stay,

Our branches represent care and extend and provide shade,

In the summer we dry up and wait for the rains,

The trunks arching in the woods and children playing in their tree houses,

People enjoy the fruits and I circle them with my roots,

I give you air,

I give you life,

With the oxygen I provide you survive,

Plant more seeds and water every day for I will provide you with all the happiness in every way,

Give the gift of tree let the birds sing free…

Story of Life

Life ! An ocean of possibilities,

A string of relationships,

A beautiful confusion to be sorted by decisions,

An obstacle crossing course,

Life! A desperation to survive for many,

A monotonous routine,

Life! a Trail of discovery and learning,

An unexpected surprise which every now and then arises,

Lies to be confronted by truth,

To some it is the thirst for power and greed,

Life! A combination of all the emotions put into an individual’s story……

The Brave Soldier

Deep in the trenches he stood with pride,

Defending what was his and everyone’s,

Brave and ready to take what comes his way,

This was no child’s play,

It was a war that he had to fight,

With enemies at his sight,

A matter of life and death,

His heart sank seeing those injured or dead,

A photo of his family by his side,

He fought bravely till the end,

Saved many lives,

He is a hero that we salute,

He is the reason that we all now survive….

A Maestro

The stage is set,

Dressed in a coat,

A spot light on the performer,

An artistic genius,

As though magic in his fingers,

The keynotes play on their own,

Music that touches the soul,

With the first key the crowd cheers,

Echoing through out the auditorium,

Silence among the crowd engrossed in the sounds,

Till he hits the last note,

And stands up to take a bow,

The curtains close the crowds disperse,

What a maestro!

The Incomplete…

With thoughts in my head,

Words were are at a loss,

I begin to write and at some point I stop,

How can all my feelings be expressed I thought,

The deep feelings sometimes cannot be said or expressed,

Instead only felt,

The paper scribbled an incomplete sentence,

The Ink of the pen smudging as lines,

I continue writing but now it doesn’t make any sense,

What I want to say and express,

Is no longer in a clear frame….

Power of Change

The way we talk,

The way we walk,

The way we behave,

Attitude has its impact everyday,

It is not what happens to us,

How we react that matters,

It depends on how we see our lives,

It can be gloomy and dark if we want it to be,

Or bright and sunny the choice is ours,

It is a make or a break situation,

It can ruin relationships or get us closer,

But we have to embrace the attitude for that day,

We cannot change how others behave,

But we have the power to take control of our day everyday…
