Death, it's a truthMay be the ultimate truthOne can't look away from itHowever hard one wishes for it Even stars dieBut then it shines throughout its lifeBefore it explodes in a supernovaTurning into nebulaA cradle for new stars I can make peace with such deathThe natural order of thingsWhere dead give way to youngWhere a...

Seeds Dispersed Everywhere

I feel this urgeA very strong impulseTo disperse seedsHere and there, everywhereSeeds of flowers and fruitsOf trees big and smallTo make greenAll land that is barrenCreating a forest everywhereOr a solitary tree in the middle of nowhereThe monsoon arrivesThe seeds sproutSome perish, some flourishOutside my windowNow grows a mango treeWhere years agoOne sunday, after sucking...

A Love Letter

Dear Earth, I love you.I love you for the oceans and mountains;For the rivers and gorges.I love you for the wispy white clouds;The rains and rainbows,Auroras and snows.

The dark clouds slowly creep from one part of the sky giving that distinct light to the sky. One can hear the distant rumbling of... Continue Reading →


Look, who has been to the Himalayas lately!Lucky you, he has been taking you to several places. Why? Doesn't he take you anywhere? No, he has never been out of town since I got to know him. Such a boring person he is! He just goes to office and ends up at home.So how did... Continue Reading →

Moving On

While it's happening, we complainWish it to be over soonJust like the school daysBut when it's overPeople go separate waysWe yearn for itMiss it a bit as wellBut that's fineThat's lifeA sweet flower of memory gets added to the beautiful garland of lifeWe should move onBe a streamInstead of a bounded lakeGo gurgling wherever life...
