MY LOVELY FRIENDS

By venu

MY   LOVELY   FRIENDS

 

I    have friends

Too many to count,

Invisible to others,

Visible to me only,

They never move away

From me,

They are always with me,

They move with me

So  gently,

They  talk to me

So  sweetly,

They ever  reveal  to me,

New, fantastic things,

The y  unfold  before me,

Beautiful, marvelous  worlds,

They  stir and  awaken

My mind to profound thoughts,

They  flood  my  heart

With serene,  wondrous emotions,

The  people  around  me

Unaware of these 

Chums of  mine,

They  are  ignorant

Of  the dwelling  abode

Of  my sweet  pals;

 

When  I  pick  up books

And  open  the  pages,

My  friends  one  by on e

Come  to  me,

Greeting, smiling

And  taking  me

Into   their   enchanting

Worlds   of  pure  joy

And     excitement;

A  Shakespeare,  a  Keats,

A   words worth,   a  Tagore

Singing  poems into my heart,

Enriching  my soul

With the wealth of beautiful  thoughts

And amazing emotions;

A  Chekhov, a   Maupassant,

An   R.K.Narayan ,  A Mulk Raj Anand,

A  Ruskin  Bond

Telling   me  so many

Fascinating   tales,

Delighting, enlightenin g   me,

Enlarging  the frontiers

Of  my mind,

My friends  never  hurt me,

N ever  quarrel  with me,

Never  angry  with   me ,

They  are  always  lovely,

That’s  the  great  power

And  magic  of  my  friends.

THE NOTORIOUS MUSICIAN

By venu

THE    NOTORIOUS  MUSICIAN

 

I do not know

Whether it is he or she,

But every time I lie

On bed to sleep

In day and at night,

It comes sprinting to me

So punctually,

Most  unwelcome guest

To our house,

It keeps orbiting

Around me s
o swiftly,

Halts hanging about

My ears in air so deftly,

Singing ceaselessly,

It comes closer

Almost into my ears,

Disgusted and irritated

At its horrible singing,

I flail my hand at it,

It just moves away

From my ears

And my flailing hand,

Then, it rushes back

To my ears,

Keeps singing

More incessantly

With vengeance,

With my eyes still

Shut in sleep,

My hand flailing

Vigorously at it,

Maybe, angered

At my indifference

To its singing spree,

It begins pinching

My ears, shoulders,

Hands, legs fiercely,

Disturbed, half-awake,

Tossing over my bed

 So  restlessly,

I keep my one hand,

Rubbing the pinched parts

Of my body,

Another hand flailing

Wildly at the notorious musician,

All of a sudden,

Singing and pinching halted,

Surprised, I wake up

And look for the raucous singer

And the nagging pincher,

My searching eyes spot

On my bed,

A fat mosquito

Lying crushed,

I pity the unwelcome musician

That embraced doom,

Singing into my reluctant ears.

A Madrigal

By nasaru


My sweet darling my Mary
My heart yearns much to marry.
Your lips part as petals, beside,
Of red Rose white dew, inside.
You thrill me every moment, dear
Hope so be to you though not near.
O! dear, my darling , feel my love
Every moment as fragrant Love.

SAVE THE PLANET

By MGN

                    SAVE THE PLANET *

Jewel celestial in cosmic space,

Unique sphere with snowy mounts,

Valleys verdant, hoary hills,

Sylvan slopes and sparkling rills,

Shimmering lakes and limpid streams, 

Endless expanse of oceans blue,

Surf-washed shores, golden sands 

And beaches fringed with swinging palms, 

Miles and miles of waving fields,

Evergreen woods swaying in the breeze,

Teeming with lovely birds and beasts -

Charming retreats for pleasure and peace.

Marvels of nature's grand creation

Are marching fast towards destruction. 

Ever increasing human need, 

Callousness and endless greed,

Ever expanding cities and towns

And mushrooming of ugly slums,

Hills denuded and plains encroached,

High-rise buildings, crowded roads,

Chimneys spewing clouds of smoke 

Poison air with deadly fumes,

Methane and Carbon-dioxide, 

Stinking effluents from broken pipes

And plastic waste clogging drains

Fill rivers and oceans with filth and foam,

Turn green slopes into arid mounds. 

It is time to stem this terrible tide

That threatens imminent destruction

Of nature's beauty and magnificence

And save this splendid planet,

Mankind's 'only home'!

मथादान

By VIKASS MAHIPATI

चुनानव का मंच सज चूका है

हर दल ने अपनी कमर कसली है

चाहे वो बजापा हो या कांग्रेस

नेता एक दुसरे पर थीकि वार करता है और

हर प्रयास करता है जिस से मथादाताओ को रिजासके

आपका मतदान आपकी ताकत

और चुने एक योग्य कोशल प्रथिनिदी

जीसे हो इस समाज का उधाहर और उन्नति होसके

UNBOWED

By Balu

 

The darkness shivers, it cringes from my touch, 

The stain on my soul sears it too much, 

Even loneliness flees far from me, 

No redemption, no release, can I see. 

 

The blood gushes out in unrelenting streams, 

I bleed but death is a mirage it seems, 

Silence screams like banshee wails, 

As the horrors of hell before my fate pales. 

 

Damnation, not a moment of peace, 

Never ever will my torments cease, 

But I smile; I cannot let them see, 

That my strength has long since deserted me. 

 

I play out this charade of nonchalant grace, 

Never letting the pain show on my face, 

Two can play this game; I will never bow to thee, 

I will keeping smiling through to eternity.

why deserted

By nasaru

WHY NO BIRDS

As my sighs gently passed through

found an old tall tree of yellow leaves

One of its nude gray branches rough

bore a brown deserted nest of birds.

Experiments endangered Environment

Callousness here created catastrophe

Underground explosions and pesticides

Fatal gases stopped chirping, besides.

As the infertile mind  exhales dry sighs

To  hold the soul the slender body fails.

पानी water

By VIKASS MAHIPATI

पानी जीवन का प्रतीक है

पानी जीवन का  एहसास है

पानी का आस है पानी का प्यास है

यह इस ब्रह्मांड में हर जीवन के लिए अमूल्य स्रोत है

यह हर जीव की प्यास बुझाता है

पानी का कोई रंग नहीं, वो बेरंग है

उसका कोई गंध नहीं है या  स्वाद अपना

पानी का हमें संरक्षण करना है आने वाले पीढी के लिए

पंचतत्व का यह एहम किरधर है जो जीवन के लिए अनिवार्य है

Water is epitome of life

It is priceless source to every life in this universe

Water is an invaluable source for every life in this universe

It quenches the thirst of every living creature

It is colorless

It does not have any smell or taste

Water is to be conserved by us for coming generations

Water is important part of panchathav

Which integral part of every life

Earth Day

By nasaru


Earth Day reminds me of dearth
on hearth that deteriorates health-
the wealth that none steals stealth.
Earth bursts in beauty for our mirth
Only so long we protect its health.
