196. Mind, Heart and Soul

where the journey is far
we have rocks to bear
until we unearth a star
a gem of intellect born, rare

where the going is tough
we have wounds to bear
until we gather enough
a courage in heart comes, rare

119. Strings Of Poetry

See sounds of a distant drum

Part with emotion, to make whole

Fingers weaving a magic to hum

On feathers of one’s soul

Trail of heaven on the page

Giving wings to love

Blooming petals of language

Fragrant showers from above

Finding strands of thought

From pieces of destruction

Screaming with a pen taut

Healing humanity’s lesion

A limitless aim to search

In trying to be

An edge of universe to perch

Let death be free

Fingers with no pursuit or goal

Turning stones to gold

Let nerves speak eye’s soul

Paint pictures of a world untold

Poetry, not an elusive mystery

But a miracle invisible

To uncover it, a mastery

Baking words, to make edible

114. It’s Not About Us

Words penetrative to sting
Feelings of one’s own making
Visions appear far from near
We, the creators of our fear

Our thoughts, genes borrowed
Lessons taught, ideas followed
A relationship with our shadow
As mirrors broad or narrow

A touch relatively only possible
To our concepts, not physical
A praise or a painful curse
Not representing the real us

Speech provoking emotion
Is about reactions or situation
That one grows up with
To think it about us, a myth

Each person in a man made world
Whether flying or curled
Is living or dealing with images own
A truth hard to taste though known

74. Thinking Problems

Loss of zest

Looking glum

Trouble of life’s test

A recurring problem

Every one knows the pain

When harsh realities strike

Crushing the heart again

Distaste one does not like

Knowing right from wrong

A constant lesson

A moral deep and long

To find oneself undone

To make the heart light

Find a lasting way out

One has to struggle and fight

Make a start from doubt

Problem, a seed of new thought

The only time we re-look

Questioning the things we sought

To write a new page of our book

Man does not move

Unless caught by a conundrum

Stuck in a groove

Till emergence of a problem

Problems bring the solutions

Taking us on a firm ground

Clarity from confusions

See answers we never found
