…. … To the Moon and Back

Nothing has gone to my oblivion

Often, I see, and look at you

Adoring, and blowing blank kisses

Far up, or away, to however you show up

Through that vast distance.

Often, I wish to fly to you

Or dream of you

Descending down to me

Being a dashing Full Moon

And shining on me.

I wish you rose

And glowed to your full action;

They say your partial look on Earth

Symbolizes DECEPTION

Therefore I fear…

But love you so dear.

Greetings… to Goddess

Last night in dream

I saw your father

He was driving

In full gear, farther

He smiled in a fashion

I felt your vibration

But you were invisible

Around, yet untraceable

I addressed him as Da

As dear as my own pa

And asked him if the Temple had

Any exclusive ritual in hand

‘Sorry, no idea’ — he said so politely

Calling my surname, suffixed with ji

And suggesting that we take a break

Opened the door after pressing the brake

Then I waited and thought of you

The idol in Temple sparked with glow

I reached the door and chanted prayers

Folding my hands, till forming layers

‘Oh you’re here!’ pops your voice from behind

Smiles the Goddess, as she throws me a node!

Everything turns, then, just like a dream

As we turn sideways to a parlor ice-cream.

What happened next was clear to us both

 Yet we did restrain Flames to the Moth !

TWIN Flowers


(An elegy to a pair of pink geraniums)

We exist on both the sides

Both the sides are ours

Do water and nurture us—

We are twin-kling flowers.


Our one side’s grounded, clear

Fertile green, the other

But if you stop watering

Shortly we will wither.


We can smell each other

Albeit there is gap

Feel the inner vibrations

From roots to the cap.


But then we should look for air

So that we can bloom

Blending with our two life-force

Deeper we can swim.

N for a Name


N for a Name

N for Nation

N for a pal

N for Nepal!


An’ N for New

Refreshed like Dew

N for a notion

Nourishing potion!


N for Novel

Neat and noble

N for a Nose

So proud to pose!


N for a Nest

An’ for the best

An’ N for Never

To part with, ever!


N for a Name

N for Nation

N for a pal

N for Nepal!

A Floral Day-Out


We’ve come a long way through

How far still, dear?

‘Lean a little forward, please

And I’m sure we’re there!’  🙂


‘First time you had said green is the sign

When I sprouted, you changed the line

Then you say here, ‘We’re very near.’

‘Yes, lean a little forth, we’re right there!’  🙂


‘They watered an’ nurtured, made us to grow

Leaves, buds an’ petals formed on us to show

Then you come ask me for day-out dunno where’

‘Just a little forward, and we are right there!’  🙂


‘A long journey on foot, despite the roads

Sometimes you pointed towards the woods

So scary forest– it ain’t look so fair!’

‘Lean a little forward, and we’re right there!’ 🙂


‘You’re getting naughtier, making me tired

Dream to see the market, already mired

Highway in jungle—only we are here!’

‘That’s why I implore — lean a little, dear!’  🙂

I caught the Star


I caught the Star

Above the woods

Far in the sky

Across the hoods.


There it did stand

Sparkling white

Beaming and blinking

With glory, yet quiet.


And there, upon it

I did salute its grace

And it did descend

To catch me by crest!


I wished to embrace

So stretched my arms

But off turned my Glory

And withdrew her charms.  😦 😦

I promise

I will not steal

Nor rob, seize or encroach

Never did I ever intend that either

I promise I won’t…

But will you offer me, for real?

Look at the plight of my unfurled hands

Do they forebode renunciation?

Please go ahead, and rest assured

I want to see you fruiting incessantly

Till eternity

I’ll wait

Hoping for the blessings

You’d ultimately shower on me!

Such a joy!

Such a joy to be in your book

In lines, and

Of course between lines!


Such a fortune to feel at home

Even when miles and

Giga-miles away from home.


Such a bite of cuisine you serve

In a dish of heart laid bare,

And an untold pining to share.


Such a joy to feel your pulse

Beating as it does like mine

And to mix in tune with thine.


Such a joy to feel your touch

Even when I am coarse,

With the flows of your own force.


What a joy to look into

Lovely pair of worlds called Eyes

And to roam there free inside!

To make you winner (Updated)



Turn, and take a step forward

Towards me

I shall double the pace of my flight

Towards thee.

Take but a step backward, I shall see

And glide back by five folds, per se

Helping you to succeed in

Stretching the gap between;

And blocking others racing in

To ensure, so that you may win.

Stride by leaps as far as you may,

Away to a distance you enjoy

Turn not backward, as to bother,

About me that may just wonder

My sole goal for ever

To make you the WINNER!
