One Single Impression : Elusive

I gave my 100%
I was very positive
Hopes in heart high
Trust complete
No stone left unturned

Some progress did give hopes
Enthusiasm reinforced
Prayers often

But soon it appeared to follow the old pattern
One step forward, two backward
No light seen at the end of the tunnel
Doubts surface
Heart tender yet not ready to give up

Eyes turn to picture of Krishna
On wall in front of me
“You have right only to your efforts not the result
Comes to mind His message in Gita

 Picture seems hazy and distorted
Through tears filling eyes

OSI Prompt : Elusive

A Verdant space

Soul seeking
A verdant patch
Life a thirsty run

Life a thirsty run
Get a friend who care
Journey gets dear

Journey gets dear
Legs stronger and
Mind cooler

Mind cooler
Heart lighter
Soul quenched

Soul quenched
Life a verdant garden
With fragrant flowers!

OSI Prompt : Verdant

Carrying always with her
Her safety, her protection
Call it
Her home
She goes anywhere
And yet always at home!

I leave my home behind
Worrying about it when away,
Return to it every evening
To be at home!

I wonder what a strange creature this
Why does she have to carry whole home with her?


She wonders what an animal this
Hardly at home!

To Mother Nature

 To Mother Nature

Let me
Toast and drink to
Her Goodness
For I feel loved by her
No matter
How I destroy
And disturb the balance
Of her vital elements
For my small comforts
Yet pretend to be ignorant,
Both of my acts
And her love!

OSI : Wassail

As sun sets
And day is about to end
Memories like chirping
Of returning birds
Fill the emptiness.
They never go far for long
From their home in warmth of gray cells

Hoping to find new lease of life
From grand children abroad
Or some old friends
I check my Inbox once again
Only to find more junk mails

Chirping is louder now
Sun may soon set
It will be quiet
