More strength to my wings
More courage

Sky more open

It will end,
Leaving within me aroma
Of many hearts who shared

Wishing you fare well
And do share, whenever you can
For my heart is richer now
With impressions you have left

Thank you for everything,
Keep in touch
Words not just said but felt

It defines
It includes
It attracts likes
It expands
It contracts
All around its center

Your circles define you
Yet you are not your circles
Remain centered

Things change
People change
Seasons change…..
Yet there is a permanent in all
That remains unchanged
That keeps us together, 
In world real or virtual

Books or Blog or FB or G+
What change are medium, style and way of expression
Not its essence

Wherever you are
Whatever you do
We will be connected
In this love we feel

What change is around
Not the center


OSI Prompt : Change

 Wrinkles on her face
Reveal her age
Not how lively is she

Know her well and
Get inspired to live
Again and again

It has seen
My swinging moods
Her brazen ways
Ups and downs of life
Yet strengthen as we grow old,
For it is friendship

Not just relationship!

In love life after life
Myth to others
Story of past life
Fact seen in sky
As a bright twin star
Called Arundhati & Vasistha
In love life after life

Myth it may be
Arise feeling real
Testimonial precious 

In certain Hindu tradition a couple after wedding is shown a twin star in sky by the priest. Couple is asked to see it once daily. The star is called Arundhati & Vasistha.
It is actually two stars revolving around each other, seen from earth as one.

Husband and wife should be like Vasishta and Arundhati – an ideal couple in Hindu mythology. No one is supposed to go around the other. Both go around each other and move together.


OSI Prompt: Myth

Driven to edge
By her hope
To be held in love

No complaint against those who pushed
Just sad, they are the ones
She yearned to be held by

Who else could?
With others she is careful
Not candid

A song in car stereo
Lighted my mind and heart
Wanting to share with her, I park

I know she will understand
And we will be together
In that love for few moments

Before I reach for my mobile
It rings, she is on other side and
I hear same song in background!


OSI Prompt : Rekindle

Meaning of Life

Meaning of life

It is a blank canvas gifted to you
Fill it with colors you want, colors you like,
It is an open sky
Create your own rainbows,
It is a fertile land
Grow garden of your choice,
An album of pictures you choose to take,
It is a poetry you compose,
Story you write
And song you sing

Meaning of life is created by you, for you.
By design or by default!

She is known for her managing skills

Things are well under her control
Be it at work, at home, in party, in picnic
All well managed
Yet she often feels sad
Especially at the end
Be it end of a working day or
When party is over

There is a void at every end
She is yet to master art of managing void

OSI Prompt : Feelings

All she wants is to be treated as
One of them, part of them,
Adjusting with
Husband and in-laws,
Their ways, tastes, values,
Like liquid taking shape of the vessel

Alas she lost her own identity

Often she is made to wonder
If she is a part of them
Or like liquid that can be emptied
.....And replaced?

OSI Prompt : Liquid

It is felt

Fading lights
Fading form
Dissolving slowly
Into nothing, nowhere
it is awesomely beautiful
Like a newborn baby!

Soon day will end
To begin again with
Awesome beauty of twilight!

OSI Prompt : Twilight

God- sent

In gleam of Broadways
All faces bright and smiling
Difficult to say a friend from a foe
Many want to walk along
Share success and
Say what please ears

It takes times in shady back streets
To bring in light
Ones who really care
Shall we say times God sent?

OSI Prompt :  Broadway

If I reveal it,
Seen by you is only a side facing you
Other sides remain unknown

If I say it,
Heard is only that reach you
Silent cry of my heart remains unheard

Is it not better to just let it be
Behind the curtain?

Curtain doesn’t curtail, it
Alleviates love, for
On its both sides is God,
In reasons as well in passion

Question is
‘Is HE in my heart?’

“Since you are a breath in God’s sphere
And a leaf in God’s forest,
You too should rest in reason and
Move in passion”
--Kahlil Gibran

OSI Prompt : Curtain

A leaf falls

A leaf falls.

Was it blown away by wind?
Or was tired of the tree?
Or tired of holding on?
Or was tree tired of it?
Or was wind and earth more alluring?

Does it matter?

A leaf falls.
A moment passed.
Live with new one.

Account of each leaf is kept
By time
And presented when existence demand,
Not for you & me to worry.

OSI Prompt : Moment

What hurts?

Right and wrong
Game mind plays
Argues for one or another as it suits

Casualty is Truth

Truth hurts no one
It includes
voice of mind
Beats of heart
Cravings and desires
Fragrance in air
Fear of running deer
Instinct of chasing tiger
Poison of cobra
Honey in womb of flowers
Dry desert
Swelling rivers
You and me and her and all

What hurts is not truth.
Truth heals
Truth understands

Hell with laws and rules
Logic and arguments
Drop that clutter
Listen to the song of your heart
Dance to that tune
Be closer to truth

OSI Prompt : Clandestine

She inquires
I deviate, uneasily.

She doesn’t know
I will not tell her
Intention is not to hurt her

For I love her

Still why it happens?
I wonder, lost in the world away
I do not have all answers
For who can claim to know the whole truth?

‘Don’t bother, take it easy’
Her casual remark, stroking my hair,
Brings me back to present

It takes us both closer to God
Closer to Truth

She certainly loves me more

OSI Prompt : Clandestine

Rainbow Happens

Transformation is a need
Nature goes through it
Warm to rainy to cold, warm again
So do man
Within and without

Transformation within connects to
Source of bliss
Peace fills
Joy overflows
Dance happens

Rainbow is seen

Till connected.

Warm to rainy to cold, warm again.....

OSI Prompt: Unlimited

You are with me
All the time

Your presence is felt
Be it sunset or sunrise
Be it cool or warm
Be it raining or sunshine
When alone or with others

Even in the moments of deep silence
When there is nothing
I feel your silence

You are with me
All the time

Gift of a Knitted heart
Helped stitch her
Wounded love

Yet scars remind painful past
Lost, at standstill
Moments pass

With a heavy sigh
Getting on with chores
She smiles at pain

Pinks, greens and blues
Splash of philosophical white
Embroidery of life

OSI Prompt :  Embroidery

Heart bleeds red
Yet smile on face
Hiding pain

Love not just a reason
It is strength
Holds both, smile and pain

Just a walk

I am here to walk some distance
To spot and enjoy beauty around
In places, in people,
In tales, in talks
In gardens, in jungle
In rain, in bathroom showers
In city roads and mountain tracks,

Magic I seek
To put smile on my lips
A song of love in my heart
Dance in my deeds and
Fragrance of friendship in air
For some distance I walk here

I am here to walk some distance

Those eyes
Lock with mine for a few moments
A spark is ignited
Spellbound, I look back
Till she turns around the corner

This happened when I was in teens
Captivated I feel now
As glimpse of those eyes pass through mind
And I relive 
Those moments a little


OSI Prompt : Charisma

OSI Prompt : 2013

It comes, it pass
So do you, so do I.
Call it time.

When it is
Feel it.

When not,
Empty –useless fill.
Call it time-pass.

What is left of me
Is balance of yet to come
As much, as such.

OSI Prompt : 2013

Now, just a tourist
Spotting and enjoying beauty
Whatever, Wherever, Whenever

 Interested in seeing, not seen
Not on the stage but in the audience
Enjoying, not entertaining

……retired from efforts
Of controlling world outside

An attitude not a stage in life 

OSI Prompt : Retirement

Bare Naked

Bare Naked

On a cool quiet of night
Rested facing sky wide open
I lie for a while

Calm and vastness
Play its magic…..
Soon I feel my breath
Hear my heartbeats

Trivial frills drop
Truth revealed
OSI Prompt : Naked

Beautiful Emptiness

Felt like indulging in gossip
Just about to ring up a friend,
I halted….

A moment of awareness

Looked at
That emptiness, I was
Seeking to fill with useless gossip

Closer look revealed....
She is so beautiful,
this emptiness!

I looked at her closely
Dwelled in her for some time
She filled me!

There was no need to gossip!
No need to raid fridge!
No surfing TV aimlessly!

Enthusiasm for my new project took over!

OSI Prompt : Peace
