Theme: Awakening

My World of Nouns

In my world of nouns

she ruffles her hair behind the ears

and spreads magic in her smiles;

Flowers she loves

and bars me to pluck even one,

and whispers, ‘If you love them,

just love, do not deflower please…’


In the world of nouns

loveliness comes down in monsoon showers

the morning prayers are said in chirrup of the birds,

men guard the fort and women rule the heart


In my world of nouns

I shall keep my eyes aside

and enjoy the beauty through hers

to disprove

and not hold on to the adage,

‘Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.’


In my world of nouns

the ears shall filter out the untruths,

lips shall be no resting place for lies

and shall reverberate with songs of love


In my world of nouns

how shall I view Him?

Is He the sky, the ocean,

the woods and the mountain?

Is He the tree, the bud and the flower,

the bumble bee, the butterfly

and every strand in the spider’s web-

Inch-by-inch the earth to beautify!
