Lifeless Branch

By Padma

Brownish branches spread all over

The tree bears leafless wings upside down

Beauty of the woods never goes down

Lifeless branches shape the tree soon again!

Natural World

By Padma

I walk through the valleys, steep

Nothing seems to be so bright

When all men fall soundly asleep

I fondly look for the morning sunlight!


Different nationalities move around

I creep slowly on the grassy land

Huge trees on the roads, surround

with no movement, look, they stand!


A group of hares run across the byway

and a flock of birds fly gladly so high

The half sized moon glides away.

giving the way to the sun, in the sky!


I was caught in the dreamworld

while thinking of people, and guessing

It’s nice to live in the  natural world

which is impartial and a blessing!

LIFE AND EARTHEN VESSEL

By venu

LIFE  AND  EARTHEN   VESSEL

  Earthen vessel

Just molded

Into shape out of clay,

Sprinkled with water

Can not be a vessel

Is of no use till burnt

By flames  of  furnace,

Potter’s hand  never fails

In the job of making it

A  fine  earthen vessel,

 Well-shaped perfect,

  And useful;

Life  shaped  out

Of flesh so  skillfully,

Soaked in  joy’s waters

Needs  perfect baking

In sorrow’s furnace

To call it  life

With its real stuff,

The Master at work

Ever strives

 For  perfection.

A Symbol of Love

By Raja

"Oh Girls, here is a test.
Bring me anything best,
That is a symbol of love,
By which one's head will bow."

A teacher sent four girls,
On this mission to test them all,
To know their minds well,
About the love how they feel.

With a flower in her hand,
One girl with a smile returned.
A beautiful butterfly another one brought,
While the third one, a tiny sparrow she caught.

The teacher was surprised to know,
The last one had nothing to show,
And asked her for the reason,
She didn't bring not even one.

She replied, "No teacher,
I saw a beautiful flower,
That adorned the plant.
So, there itself I left it."

"I saw a colorful butterfly,
And allowed it to fly
With its freedom under the sky.
So, to catch it I didn't try."

A tiny bird I saw up there.
I took pity on its mother,
That may search for it.
So, I left it in its own nest."

Hugging this girl, the teacher said,
"Well, I appreciate what she did.
This is the real love, it means,
Without bringing anything else."

"For love this world starves.
Give it in plenty what it wants.
Never deny the nature its freedom,
From us what it always demands."

Sonnet: Parents or Friends?

By Dr John Celes

 

You come across some persons in your life

On earth, at school or college or workplace;

And some become your friends or foes or wife

Or parents, teachers in the human race.                 

 

The love and care of parents looks so great;

No child reciprocates their toil for you;

In old age, children love them not but hate;

About this senseless thing, what can you do?

 

The modern youth woos friends much more than kin;

To them, true joy is moving with mere friends;

More bliss is from virtuality and sin;

The love in homes seems unreal or ends!

 

But youth turned parents, realize the truth;

True love of kindred is the luscious fruit.

Beginning

By Padma

The beginning of the day is a good sign

when all living beings begin to be divine

The day starts with a positive thought

may show you the path, that's truly sought!

 

Students open the day with a curious mind

Workmen briskly initiate the task, assigned

House makers make their  day very well

who care the members that gladly dwell!

 

Beginning of any work on an auspicious day

May bring the benifit in our desired way

Well begun is half done, to gain gains a ton

Let's try to do everything positively under the sun!

Conversations - Tapestry Poem

By Shernaz & Raamesh Tapestry Poems

Conversations - Shernaz

our democracy is whimpering

our ill-fated populace has been

rendered into one speechless voice

laughing mirthlessly at itself

 

our stricken silence boomerangs 

from blatantly bigoted minds 

farcical dialogues take place

wherein the servile dumb

converse with the selectively deaf

 

 

Conversations - Raamesh

When it came to the end, it wasn't so miserable:

everything dissolved into a turgid silence.

Fights, lovemaking, decisions, disagreements:

that day there was only unspoken consensus

leaving me to run them over in the mind

for the rest of my existence; and to wonder

what else could have been. She had no cause to,

but would she regret too? The only words aloud

were to the waiter, 'separate bills please'.

 

 

Tapestry - Conversations

Fights, lovemaking, decisions, disagreements:

everything dissolved into a turgid silence

rendered into one speechless voice

laughing mirthlessly at itself:

the only words aloud were to the waiter

'separate bills please'.

 

When it came to the end, it wasn't so miserable.

Our democracy of silences boomeranged

from blatantly bigoted minds

leaving me whimpering

(like our ill-fated populace)

to run them over in the mind.

 

You had no cause to,

but would you regret too:

farcical dialogues take place wherein this

servile dumb converses with you, selectively deaf

for the rest of our existence; and to wonder

 

what else could have been?
