ANIMAL FARM



Man has lost his mind

 In the war of domestication!

 It seems!

The pigs have risen

Glory be to them! 

Glowing adulation for the porcine

Lights up the eyes of every mindless mobster

As he has flushes away all residual ideas

In exchange for pizza and porn

What will become of uber-man!

A willing slave to his own passions

Guided by intelligent porcine malevolence

As the pithed army of men obliviously march on

They trample upon on their own hapless hearts and souls!

In this game of animal farm!

The pigs have risen again


Glory be to them! 



SINKING NOTE


An unscathed voyager


Across seven seas!


I once was!


Hardened by the elements


Un-toppled by any gust or gale


Surviving the fiercest of the blizzards


Yet! Alas! 


All it takes is a little change of tone! 


In the whisper of your voice


To sink this un-sinkable ship of my heart!


Tell me! Oh my beloved!


Is it your strength!  Or is it my weakness!





NAMELESS WISDOM


In this sea of ignorance



Knowledge is merely an illusion



That which clings



Can be no understanding



Let go!




Let the nameless wisdom flow!

THE FIRST STONE

Let the him with no sin

Cast the first stone

Said He!

Yet! In this world of dissonance

Stone in hand you wait

Wait for the right moment!

For your brother’s weaker moment

For him to slip!

So you can blame!

So you can curse him; condemn him

Make him a caricature of evil

Show case him!

As an embellished embodiment of abominable sin!
  
Why is it oh foolish mind!

You take pleasure in your brother’s every sinful lapse

Does it hide the darkness in your soul?

Does it contrast your evil heart in better light?

Does it change your sin to heavenly merit?

Does it put you in unsinkable moral high ground?

Why is it that the eyes that see the speck in the eye of your brother

Fails to see the boulder in your own!

Oh! Where is your mirror of wisdom!

To show you; that in a another context and set of circumstances

It could be you!

The sinner! The unholy!

 The unworthy! The condemned!

Oh! Where is  your  mirror of compassion?

To show you! That the sinner is another lost soul like you

That he too suffers and he too needs a chance to repent

Oh! You great warriors of righteous thought, and chariots of sententious emotions!

Hold your raging horses! Put down your bloodied swords!

Leave it to the Lord!  


Judge not! Let Love do the healing !

GREEN SLUDGE


Caught In the swamp of the clinging mind



I pointlessly struggle!



Clogging blobs of rancid anger



Rising fumes of Toxic hatred



Thick green and gooey



The slimy sludge of jealousy!



As I lose my ground



And sink neck deep in self-made misery




Oh!! Can rusty boots of reason still save me! 








EMPTY SHADES OF BLUE


Across the vastness of sky




In shades of sentient blue




Serenity grows




The mind vanishes





Emptiness blossoms! 

BREAK IN AT DAWN


Broken locks



Open doors



Missing things



Unaffected by all



Through the shattered window



Teaching me to let go




The morning sun glows! 


BEAUTIFUL FLASH


The freshness of the morning breeze

The splendid colours of the garden

The sweet fragrance of the flowers

Alluring and enchanting

Oh How beautiful is this life!

Yet! In a flash; all of this can vanish!

Oh Foolish mind!

Don’t waste your time in pettiness

Come let us enjoy this beautiful moment

Come let us enjoy this moment called life 

Before it is too late

Before breathe leaves us

Before death snatches away every thing

Drink from the spring of love and joy

Indeed this life is a miracle!


Come! Let us enjoy it while it still lasts! 


RESTLESS YEARN



The sky is dark and gloomy




Dusk sinks in silently




Restless and worried




For thee!





My heart yearns! 




BEDAZZLING BEAUTY


Moonlight glow of her face


Dark night of her tresses  


Enchanting garden of her smile


Splendid and sparkling


Full of bedazzling beauty


Is she a dream!


Is this  magic !


Perfected in perfection


Limitless in Love


Praise be to her creator!  



Oh! How wondrous  is her beauty! 



REMAINING THOUGHT



Cloudless, blue and silent





The sky sighs!





The thought remains!

THE MAGIC OF LIFE


In the fertile land of emptiness


A mystical mirage suddenly appears


Through the forest of the mind


The stream of consciousness flows!


Like a midsummer night’s dream,


Like an illusion, like a dew drop


The magic of life!



How Beautiful Indeed! 

HIMALAYAN BLISS


Lofty snow capped mountain peaks


Shine in silvered silence


The warm Himalayan sun glows


The cool wind blows gently


Rhododendrons and magnolias sway


The tall deodars creek


Lost in the bliss of this paradise



How can there be a trace of me!

LONGING FOR HOME



Crows fly in a hurry





The sun sinks with ease





Longing to go home






Crimson thoughts flutter! 

TARDY FOOTSTEPS


Scattered leaves






Yellow and mottled






Unaware still






Tardy footsteps!









DARKNESS REMAINS


The storm ceases



Dark clouds pass away



But alas!



The sun has already set




Darkness remains !

FEATHERED HAT OF ARROGANCE


Where in lies the basis of your pride

Oh you foolish mind! 

How is it that you flaunt the feathered hat of arrogance?

Look at yourself in the mirror of life!

Shed your cloak of insensitivity!

Look at your own vulnerability!

Do you still see your pride?

Your human life is so fragile!

Like dew drops in the morning sun

Life can ebb away in an instant

In this worldly existence

Ego, disease and sorrow

Are inevitable!

From them; you can never run away! 

Can’t you see this blatant truth?

Wealth and wisdom, you may have today

But can they save you 

When your coffin is being carried away

Pleasure and passions may lure you

But beware of their treachery

Snared by sinister pleasure

 Craving becomes your master 

And your mind its mindless slave

The inferno of desire will rage on

Even as the ashes of your life get blown away

Power may give you prowess

And an illusion of apparent control

But as the circle of life moves on

And the table of time turns

Insecurity and sorrow are sure to follow

As power will always plough you down some day  

Oh you foolish mind!

Repent now! It’s not too late!

In this evanescent life

You are still lucky 

As you still have few more breaths to breathe

Give up anger, infatuation, and greed

 Ponder over your real nature

And you will see

That everything is essence-less

And this phenomenal world is but a fleeting dream

The ego is a mirage and duality an illusion

And you will see 

yourself in everyone

And everyone in yourself 

You in me; and me in you

One in all; all in one; and all in all 

The Ultimate one!
