Life’s Musings…

In the stillness of the night
doing nothing at all, I,
envelope myself in deep silence
where I cast everything else aside
and, stop to pause to make sense
of my current state of affairs
musing over what caused it all!

In a pensive mode as I contemplate
asking myself whether is this person
whom I wanted to be all along, and
is this the place where I wanted to belong
the answer unveils in my reflection
where I fail to recognize both
for this is not how 'twas meant to be!

I reflect over the chronicle of my life
marked by my events of success and failure
where at every milestone; I revelled or learnt
and realized that it's the candle of life
masked as a cog in the moving wheel of time
harbouring me to the safe shores, whenever
I've lost my sense of direction n' purpose!

Such candles unexpectedly come n' go unbidden
the onus is on us to value n' savour every moment
of their guidance while being taken care of;
and then continue with our journey of life
renewed with vigor n' a sense of pure faith
that there's an angel up there for all of us
to watch over us and our life's musings!

We make a difference..!!

Each one of us is here for a purpose
and we need to play our part to the fullest!

What if every drop of water
in the ocean would say,
"I'm just a single drop n' not the ocean"
Would there be an ocean then..??

What if every grain
on the land would say,
"I'm just a single grain n' not the land"
Would there be any land then..??

What if every seed
of a plant would say,
"I'm just a single seed n' not the crop"
Would there be any crop then..??

What if every single note
in music would say
"I'm just a single note n' not the melody"
Would there be any melody then..??

Likewise… it is only when we all do
what we got to do that WE make a difference
to our realm n' complete this WORLD of ours
embalming Mother Nature in all its elements!!

Nature's Fury...

Bombay, July 26, 2005 ~
Her eyes glaring at the non-obeisance
her unrelenting fury on the rising violence
her silent cries ruffled by the aberrance
her radiance filled energy striking at humans
in the form of intensified lightning bolts
as a mark of an end of her endured resilience
scathing everything within her vision
such was her anger that she destroyed lives
submerging the city that never slept
shaking earth as she kept moving on n' on
leaving indelible emotional scars at every turn
devouring the mark left behind in the minds
of humans by the avalanche n' deluge!

The chaos, wrath, fury took awhile to calm
and 'twas in the queer stillness that it dawned
that Nature to be commanded must first be obeyed
and behind the realm of her wisdom n' benevolence
resides a fierce acerbic unmatched super power
which is best when in its soft demeanour form!

To invoke or soothe this Nature's fury, and
Time's wrath - lies totally unto us…
Let’s together ensure that it will not recur..!!
