This Present Moment

Life consists entirley on the present moment.
This moment right here.
The moment we are breathing.
The present moment is everything.
It pervades the whole universe.
And embraces every soul.
The present living moment creates life.
The present moment heals the past and decides the destiny of the future.
The present moment is the greatest gift that a person can be bostowed upon by the gods. The dead can never savour the living beat of the present moment…

I choose to live for and in this present moment for the past is just a memory and the future a mere promise. Life happens in the present moment. In past, life is dead. In future, life is yet to be born…


We Will Talk Soon

I will be happy
If you will find time
And get me
So that we could talk
There are many things to talk about
To ponder and wonder about
There is so much to whisper around
I always feel comfortable
While talking to you dear sister
You know me
And you never judge me
I aint perfect
No one is
Then why do they judge others?
Pure foolishness
I really don’t know where to start
It has been such a long time
Since we saw each other
Dear sister
You understand my pain
You know how I hurt inside
I understand your kids have all grown up
They should see their uncle soonest
So many years have gone by
Yet I have remained in exile
A self imposed exile
Lost and lonely
And in a foreign place
Where I have conversed with the wind while time
Has travelled without my soul
There is so much to share
All these long years
I have never forgotten about you
But time has been cruel to me
Life has been unforgiving
But who would understand?
No one
I have always soldered on alone
Trying new vistas
Burning fingers
And making more mistakes
Cursing the devil
But dear sister
You have always been there…

How can I forget?
No way…

I have to come home.

We will talk soon
We have to…

Don’t Let Them Listen To The Blues

These blues from the blue
That they keep on listening
Are not good
Papa don’t let them listen to the blues
If they stay at home they will listen to the blues and the blues will make them blue with hopelessness
Out of work and with nothing to do
They listen to the blues
Without money
They listen to the blues
Without love
They listen to the blues
Papa don’t let them listen to these blues
Blues without clues
Blues with dark hues
Blues with dues
If not careful
They will sing the blues
And croon about their pain
And wail about their waste
And mourn about their loneliness
Papa keep these blues away from them…

Our Criminal

The call him a criminal
Yes, he is our criminal
The call him a crook
Yes, he is our crook
A beloved criminal
A respected leader
Our leader
We elected him
Yet they screamed in the mountains
That our leader is a tainted leader
Our criminal

They don’t know
How would they know?
When their eyes and hearts
Are veiled by gravity defying hatred and bigotry?
They preached poison against fellow man
Wherever they set upon their cursed feet
In this land of many streams and mountains
They caused untold violence, death and suffering
To innocent souls
And when our leader stepped in
And stopped their heinous acts
They promptly labelled him 
A criminal
A crook
A thief
A liar
But what they should know 
Is that, that criminal is ours
Our criminal

He who stopped
Their venomous poison
From flowing through
The veins of innocent children
He who stopped them
From destroying a whole generation
Our criminal

The Death Of Unborn Romance

A confused romance died
On the lips
That refused to kiss a longing heart
A nascent romance died
In the breast
That refused to embrace a willing soul
A young romance died
In a heart
That was too cold and uncaring to accept another
Was it a figment of imagination?
A surreal occurrence?
A transient moment?
Will never know
For the romance died
Before it was born…

Longest Desire

This desire
Holds I captive
To its ever clever wiles
It beguiles my faltering will
With a total finality
It silently flows to the mind
And possesses the soul
And stills and steals the spirit
I am helpless
Till this mighty desire is fulfilled
I am a slave
To esoteric aspirations
That this dark desire
Drives I to
It is a long desire
So long
But it leaves me
Running on empty miles
And without smiles.
The longest desire…
