Meandering thoughts………..




Googd byeThe sun kissed the dew

the birds chirped a melody

welcoming dawn

alas I will never see another dawn

The hands that held the rifle

to safeguard my mother

will never comfort my daughter

The eyes that scanned 

the landscape for enemies

will never light up with pleasure

at the sight of loved ones

The life blood that coursed through

pays homage to my mother

at her feet

her very being that I fought for

The heart that loved you mother

will beat no more

Every breath for you

and the last too

no more would I salute the tricolour

on the way to my final journey

draped in it….


Poised at the brink of the precipice

gazing at the raging waves

crashing at the jagged rocks

the savage beauty alluring

to ride the potent waves.

Effervescent swell rising up

hammering the shoreline to embrace it anew

a violent beauty

a sight that was spectacular

tantalizing my senses obliterating

the warmth left behind.

My heart yearned

to relish , rejoice and lose myself

in that magnificent epitome of nature.

A foot is that needs for the plunge

while the hearth at home beckoned me

the savage  beauty seduced me

a war between the nature and nurture.

Amidst this whirlpool of sensations

stood I a feet closer to precipice.
