Often I wander about correlations Between mood swing and happiness link And cross the hurdles in a rush To overcome syndromes of 'swim or sink'! Success tends to glitter, Like mirage in a forlorn desert And pushes me to wake up From my dreams of a sweetheart! Reality mingles with steams Emanating from coffee cup in my hand- And marches along sands of time With busy days' marching band! Pleasure of leisure seems heavy In my dictionary page 'Cause of verdant faith of retiring, Or stepping out of hermit age!
Calamities of life squander In some form or manner As I struggle through forehead wrinkles Under an evergreen banner! Mind becomes cloudy, And pain simmers in the chest- Regardless of my philosophy, Or response to heavenly calls at best! An evening stroll in the orchard Rejuvenates the tired weary thought- And reminds me the spillover Of the battles I have fought! My heart longs for nectar of love As it grows on and off the vines And I try to seep it at dawn, Before the sun shines! Vortex of emotional flow subsides In the quagmire of living hell While I sigh a deep sigh To lend my ears to tranquility bell! My efforts for doctrines of humanity Get poured into a seismic funnel And energize me to walk on With lights at the end of tunnel! Semblance of love from on or off the vines, I pour into the glass And wait for the turbulent consequence, With a dream for humanity of world class!!
