you defend a thorny weed so lovingly

you will always have your way
even if it means
a thorny weed
so lovingly
when the garden may have so much more
why do you love him so much
why do you
allow so many indiscretions
is it because you know
his devotion to you
very pure and sublime
may be thorns are only to defend himself
from persuasive

Ab Mera jawab suno

Ab Mera jawab suno
Meri kavitaon ka hisaab suno
Koi shikayat karey to bhi kya
Tum meri jindagi ke kuchh to palon ko guno

Mainey har pal ko imaandari se jeeney ki koshish ki hai,
Har pal ko kisee na kisee ki takleef thodi kam ki hai
Lekin sahi hai ki poora nyay to main tumse na kar paya
Thoda Akhbar aur thoda iPad saath le Aaya
Thode hi to pal bitayey they saath Mainey
Unmein se bhi kuchh ko chura laya
Chalo ab roj ek kavita Tumhey arpit hogi
Thodi shikayat to shayad phir tumhari kam hogi

Akhbar kyun le aatey phir se

Waise bhi kahan fursat tum patey ho
Har Samya kisee na kisee ki guthhi suljhatey ho
Aur phir kuchh pal yahan as bhi Jao,
To saath meri saut ke Akhbar liyey aatey ho

Chalo aaj is Baat ka faisala kar ley
Kuchh palo ki aazadi tumhari sada ke liyey har ley
Kuchh pal saath to bitao jara
Phir Batana ki khabrey apni Dunian ki Kaisi hai
Khwabon mein chain kamar par thode mukkey
Aaram ki talab aur thode irade ho pakkey
Aao ab palo ko yug banayey
Saarey gile shikwe peechey bag mein Khad ban jayey

Eagel’s gaze

Eagle’s gaze
Falcon’s flight
Did you want to show
The fancies might

Molten cries
Placid sighs
Did u want to know
A dream splice

Intent so intense
Desires had pretense
Did you try to fathom
How deep the scar hence

the boats became lamps and waves swallowed the fire

the boats became lamps and waves swallowed the fire
lightening burned the bridges
but then roots didn’t care
and reached across the river
to create a bridge
after walking on this bridge,
i am relieved that
the fires have limits
and can not engulf
all the ways of crossing over

why do you want submission every time

every time, you pleaded, i succumbed
but did that make your journey smoother

compromises dont make a pavement
even if paved with good intentions
but weak actions;;
may be you take some time out
and ask a hard question,
could not assertion of your free will
guided as it should be
from shower of blessings from all sides
help you to ask for lesser submissions
lesser compromises
more spontaneity
less contrived solutions, may be none at all
some day
