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

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.

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

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

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.....

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
